Lives Up to Its Title
This book promises recipes that can be prepared in under one hour for weeknight meals and it does seem to live up to that promise. I've tried a couple of recipes (the bean salad and the Mexican rice) so far that were quick and easy. The other recipes I've read in the cookbook also appear to be quick and simple and use ingredients I can find in my local grocery store with the possible exception of baby octopus for the Soup of the Seven Seas recipe which I'm certain I will not make so that doesn't pose a problem for me.
The recipe sections include salsas and tortillas, salads, soups, vegetables and side dishes, poultry and eggs, beef and pork, fish and shellfish, desserts and snacks, and beverages. There is a menu planning section with suggested recipe combinations for complete meals, as well as lots of color photographs that inspire me to try other dishes such as tortilla soup, vegetable quesadillas, overstuffed chicken sandwich, chicken enchiladas, homemade churros, and three milks cake.
Cooks who enjoy Mexican food will benefit from adding this book to their collection.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

excellent and delicious!
Excellent cookbook - very easy to use and definitely lives up to the name quick and easy. The writer, Ms. Lee, is the best! (I also enjoyed her quick and easy korean cookbook)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
