    Good Food Made Easy

    I loved this book - the recipes are fast, healthy and simple. Each one has a clock letting you know approx. how long it will take to make and along the side of the page is a list not only of ingredients but also types of pans needed. Ingredients are also separated as to what you probably have on hand (flour, oil, spices) and what you'll need to buy. Most recipes take 30 minutes - so this is a great cookbook for everyday using fresh ingredients. Rocco definitely likes to salt everything but you could leave out salt if you are worried about intake. I would've liked more pictures (I like one for every dish) but that's just me.

    Great recipe book design

    What I love about this book is the convenience of how all the information is displayed. He provides a graphical description of what tools you will need, what you will need to purchase at the grocery store and what he describes as "staples" for your kitchen. He does tend to have things on the garlicky side with heavy amounts of spicing things up, but that can be adjusted as you develop your love of cooking using his terrific book.

    I was looking for easy recipes that I could put together quickly that were tasty and healthy and didn't take all afternoon or evening. These recipes fit the bill, but took a little adjustment to our normal cooking and pantry stocking behaviors.

    Easy to use cookbook. I would recommend this to anyone.

    Fast, delicious recipes

    Rocco combines few ingredients with easy to follow instructions. The results are wonderful! I haven't found a recipe yet that my family and I didn't love. Definately worth a spot on your cookbook shelf.

    Nice and easy--I LIKE THAT!

    Rocco keeps it nice and easy. Even 'I' could follow his recipes without making mistakes. Now that in itself is an amazing task. Just ask my hubby! If you are a cook like 'Me' then you will (also) need all the help you can get in the kitchen. Look no further, this book's for you! Get your copy today!
