I'm a full-time professor who seldom gets home before 6:00 pm. The kitchen is dark and I'm usually starving. Kitchen Express has more ideas in one book for dealing with this situation than any ten other cookbooks combined. Twenty-minute, healthy recipes and lots of them. They all work. They make eating healthy a lot easier. And they keep me out of the cooking-the-same-old-thing every day rut. The book is organized by season, which saves money on food and inspires variety. This is not a book for the inexperienced, as it does not provide technique or even quantities. It's an idea book for assembling common ingredients in fast and interesting ways. I've given this book as gifts to a number of friends and relations who all use it regularly. I'm systematically working through recipes and enlarging my everyday repertoire. This weekend I made pumpkin creme brulee (takes five minutes to put together) for a dinner party and it was a hit.

This is an excellent cookbook, but it is not for novice cooks. The book is broken down by seasons so you can take advantage of what is fresh and there are no amounts so you have to be more than passingly familiar with cooking. All the recipes I have tried to date are excellent.

101 short paragraphs featuring a quick "how to..." create some fabulously quick and easy offerings. Additional info on ingredients, a well-stocked pantry, 4 season menus, week night dinner party ideas, better than Asian take-out, romantic suppers, kid's night, room-temperature buffets, finger foods for cocktail parties, holiday blowouts, weekend brunch, and even picnic or road trip ideas. Sadly, there are absolutely NO illustrations (unless you count the author's mug shot in the inside back cover flap)--a major flaw and a real 'bummer' for a beginner.

Easy, fresh meals, no measuring required.  Minimalism at its yummiest!

Recipes short and ingredients are easily found anywhere. Perfect for the cook who wants to keep things simple aqs well as tasting great.

I bought this as a gift as I have found it very useful and easy to follow. It broke my rut of cooking the same things adding great variety to my cooking.

I don't know if it would be different if I'd gotten the actual book, butthough the recipes look yummy, I rarely make any because it is so hard to find anything in the Nook. I wish I'd gotten a real book for this.
