I've had this cookbook for a couple of years, and it has definitely made some good, easy meals when my husband and I were in a time crunch. The grocery lists are particularly useful. A couple of caveats though. First, a lot of these meals take one hour, particularly if you count how many ingredients you need to chop or grate. Second, my husband complains that some of these recipes have far too many flavors and ingredients. The best solution for both problems is to occasionally "dumb down" some of the recipes in the book to something a little more basic. However, the plusses is that Rachael Ray's meals usually look really pretty (I use a lot of these recipes for stress-free get-togethers), and she really knows how to enhance meals with spices. Since cooking with her recipes, I feel like my spice collection has increased considerably. Overall, very worth buying for someone who wants to cook at home but feels to busy to do so.

Something is lacking

I like the format and the idea behind this book, but some of Rachel Ray's recipes are just too "out there" for me. She's definitely a fusion cook - a lot of things she puts together are things that I think don't match. Also, a lot of her recipes require many ingredien...

    Great recipes helpful lists

    I'm happy I got this ebook. It has really useful shopping lists and did help me answer the question "What should I always have on hand?" But at the beginning of each recipe there is a jumble of overlaping words partially obscuring the first ingredient. I don't appreciate paying money for a book withthat type of "bug" in it. Still a worthwhile purchase.
