Frustrated with the lack of time she had to prepare a healthy meals, Rhee taught herself how to use shortcuts, leftovers, and pantry staples. She shared her suggestions on her blog, which informs this bound collection of useful tips and 100 recipes for quick meals. While there are recommendations for shaving calories, such as swapping out Greek yogurt for sour cream, mayo, or cream cheese, Rhee’s focus is on speed, which often comes at the expense of flavor or lower calories. Her sheet-pan steak and veggies, in which a steak sits atop mixed vegetables and is broiled, could easily have benefited from searing both sides of the steak in a skillet while the veggies get a head start on roasting, and easy swaps, such as using low-calorie mayo for the crispy chicken bites in Bang Bang Chicken or substituting half-and-half for heavy cream in a one-pot zucchini mushroom pasta, are overlooked. Readers can make those decisions for themselves: nutritional information is provided for each dish. There are still plenty of simple, flavorful, fast dishes here: slow cooker Korean beef, avocado pasta, linguine with clams, balsamic salmon with strawberry mango salsa, and spicy cinnamon sugar candied nuts are simple to source and well within the reach of even the most novice cooks. Those pressed for time or new to the kitchen will get the most out of Rhee’s book. Though the concept of simple meals that come together quickly is not new, this book is a handy addition to the shelf. (Sept.)

Rhee presents all-new and reader-favorite recipes from her popular food blog Damn Delicious (damndelicious.net). Easy recipes such as spicy marinara baked eggs, slow-cooker French dip sandwiches, and mint mojito iced coffee can be made in 30 minutes or less and generally involve little prep or cleanup. The author covers all of the latest trends in convenience cooking: sheet pan suppers, one-pot meals, foods baked in foil packets, and more. Included are plenty of copycat recipes from popular fast food restaurants (e.g., Panda Express, The Cheesecake Factory, Chipotle) for budget and health-conscious readers along with dishes that can be prepared entirely in a microwave or slow cooker for college students or busy chefs. All recipes include nutrition information and labels identifying them as vegetarian, kid-friendly, or gluten-free. VERDICT Epicures may scoff, but Rhee's simple-to-make meals are satisfying and a superior alternative to frozen entrees or takeout. A must for anyone who struggles to find the time or energy to cook at home.

I'm so happy this food blogger has finally put out a cookbook! Chungah Rhee has an amazing personality as do her dogs. The recipes are amazing! I have personally made quite a few of them. They are fantastic and easily put together. The name of her blog, Damn Delicious, couldn't be more fitting for the name of her cookbook. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next as well as future cookbooks. Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.
