    Family Favorite!

    This book has been a favorite of ours for many years. My girls have been selecting and successfully preparing recipes from this book since they were 16 years old. Now my oldest daughter has set up her own home and has asked for her own copy of this cookbook. So today I am ordering it for her. Everyone should have a copy of this cookbook!

    T-H-E BEST COOKBOOK

    These dishes are the most easiest, delicious, and will make you look like a pro. They also look extraordinary in presentation and color. There is a slow cooker section that has some extremely delicious recipes that you will cook again, again, and again.

    Fast, Easy & Delicious

    I have found that this cookbook is complete with great tasting and quick meals. What I also like about it is the quick grocery list at the front of the book. I highly recommend this cookbook.

    Fantastic, Easily-Prepared Recipes

    I received this book as a wedding present. The recipes are delicious (try the Balsamic Pork Chops...the leftovers are even better the next day!) and simple to prepare. I own over 50 cookbooks, and I still consistently reach for this book when I don't have a lot of time, but I need to make a healthy meal that my husband will enjoy. Many recipes are also good for entertaining because you can do the prepwork before the guests arrive and then spend a minimum of time in the kitchen throwing together the meal.

    Great Solution for Busy Moms!

    This cookbook has helped to simplify my life. I can prepare healthy meals for the whole family (my kids love them!) and keep the prep time to 15 minutes or less. The actual cooking time may be more than 15 minutes, but it is time that I can be doing something else. I'm in the process of trying to lose weight and change my family's eating habits for life. This cookbook is an essential tool in that process. I have two children and spend a lot of time driving them to various activities. We used to eat fast food on the run or pick up pre-made dinners at the store that were high in sodium and preservatives. Now we can eat so much healthier and still keep up with our busy lives.

    Smart Cookbook!

    When they say 15 minutes, they really mean it! This book has not just recipes that take 15 minutes, but entire meals that take 15 minutes! It shows recipes & what to put with it. I've seen no other cookbook of it's kind!

    One of the best!

    If you are looking for fast, easy, and healthy meals that taste good, this book is for you. I love that there are pictures for every recipe. Also, the side dishes compliment the main dishes so well. Everything in this book is wonderful! Cooking Light needs more like it.

    YUMMY, FAST, I lost weight!

    I have tried most of the recipes in this book and almost all were excellent. One of my biggest problems with cooking and eating right is time. Too many 'diet' recipes are time consuming. I can cook these in the time it takes me to order for delivery!
