    Nice Change

    I love to cook from scratch, love the chopping and all that goes with it. But I also appreciate what Sandra Lee does with her cookbooks. Cooking can be expensive and time consuming. I enjoy trying out her recipes and have found most of what I have made so far to be good and worth the money. I have 4 of her cookbooks and love the way every recipe has a picture. They are easy to follow with minimal ingredience. Give them a try. You'll never like every recipe of any book you get. But she has some great worth while ones.

    Great book.........

    This is a great book. Anyone writting that they're upset that nothing is made by scratch is also a person who buys an atlas and says 'what's with all these lines?'. That's the point of the book. Get a dictionary and look up the work 'semi'. I love this book.

    My family is raving!!!

    For those of you who enjoy searching all over town for ingredients in the annoying Martha Stewart recipes or if you take pride in spending all day in the kitchen cooking--THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR YOU!!! For the rest of us...like me...this book is fabulous. Like any recipe book there is a few that I will make over and over and a few I will pass on. Great wedding gift.

    Some of you are missing the point

    Sandra Lee's approach is to use pre-made items and stuff already made so you don't spend tons of time in the kitchen. The meals are easy to use and don't take a lot of time. I have gotten rave reviews on all of the recipes I have tried out of all three of her cookbooks. She's a lot more down to earth and a whole lot less irritating than Rachel Ray. Also for those of you that keep critizing the fact that she had name brands, I think you failed to read some of the introduction. She mentions the brands because those are the ones she thinks taste best, not because you have to use them. And you can substitute lower calorie options and the recipes are still great. I love the cookbooks and her shows.

    Hence 'Semi' Homemade

    The whole point of these recipes is to be 'semi'homemade, not made from scratch. So, yes the ingredients include canned and prepackaged food. It's all about short cuts for busy lifestyles. Sandra Lee has a lot of great ideas and the recipes are very good. I recommend this cookbook for people who don't have time to spend hours in the kitchen and need to prepare quick, easy meals that taste good and would normally take longer to make.

    unabashed advertising ploy at work

    I bought this book at the store yesterday and could not believe what I am seeing. It will be returned tomorrow! Almost every recipe contains a laundry list of canned, packaged, and not very good for you products. Save your money and start clipping the recipes on the lables from canned soups or boxes of instant products as most of these recipes contained in this book are duplicates. It should be called 'a college dorm room guide to cooking for your teenage friends'. There are really very few recipes which could claim to be 'semi-homemade' unless you consider using your can opener or the fact that you assembled the packaged products in your kitchen as homemade cooking. Most recipes were not neccessarily faster and the majority were much more costly than traditional cooking. This is not the cookbook to buy if you are trying to feed a family or plan an event on a budget. I cannot recommend anything in this book, even some of the decorating ideas were offensive. It is very dissapointing.

    It makes my life easier

    Not everyone has the time to make everything from scratch. With me having a full-time job, trying to organize my new house, and having a one year old baby running around, it's hard to find time. Semi-homemade is perfect because I can still take credit for it, and it's better than throwing something in the microwave for my family!
