Publishers Weekly -The television host known as "Sam the Cooking Guy" returns with another compilation of simple recipes useful for getting a meal on the table in no time. Employing just a handful of key ingredients, Zien (Just a Bunch of Recipes) shows readers how to whip up Piña Colada Pancakes, Blue Cheese Gnocchi with Bacon, Thai Curry Noodle Soup, or Shepherd's Pie without spending all day in the kitchen. Gourmands and sticklers will likely be incensed at many of his methods for standards like tomato soup (throw chopped onion and fresh basil in a blender, add a can of roasted tomatoes with garlic, then puree), as well as his reliance on canned and prepared products, but anyone unsure in the kitchen (or who views cooking as a chore) will find a wealth of ideas. Multiple suggestions for repurposing leftovers like meat loaf, mashed potatoes and store-bought rotisserie chicken will help readers avoid palate fatigue while saving money. Even those who already know how to boil eggs (yes, Zien includes a recipe for "the more-often-than-not screwed up" Hard-Boiled Egg) will likely find a few guilty pleasures here, along with some new time and money-saving tricks.
