Overview

The Best Simple Recipes offers more than 200 full-flavored easy-to-prepare recipes that can be on the table in 30 minutes or less in an easy-to-read paperback format.

Just because time is short, it doesn't mean you have to settle for a can of soup or a sandwich for dinner, or making one of the many boring and flavorless fast recipes (which often aren't even as fast as they promise). Our test cooks have created more than 200 recipes that keep the ingredients and cooking time to a minimum and offer tons of flavor and plenty of variety.

By combining steps, minimizing pans, and employing a little test kitchen trickery, our test cooks have made naturally fast recipes even faster, and they've made recipes that traditionally take hours ready for the table in half an hour. And while they used a minimum of ingredients, one thing they didn't minimize was flavor.

Editorial Reviews

Epicurious.com
"This lovely compendium of mouth-watering recipes may be simple in steps, but is rich in flavors."
The Reading Eagle
"If you rely on restaurant and takeout weeknight meals because of time constraints, you're going to have to find a new excuse."

Every recipe I have cooked in this book have been great! The instruction are clear and easy to follow, and mix the flavors of each dish beautifully. The only down side I would say is for most recipes it says Under 30 minutes, but that does not include prep time, which can add on to the time. However this book is well written and I highly recommend it!

I have really enjoyed the cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and don't have many steps. I've made several things out of this book and they have all turned out well. I'm not much of a cook so this has been a really good start for me.

A friend bought me this cookbook for my birthday at the end of July. I've cooked 4 or so recipes out of it so far, and they've all been delicious. The 30 minute estimate is accurate, and everything has been very easy. Also, I like that this is a book I can cook through; it's not one of those in which I find entire sections of recipes that I won't cook. As a teacher, I'm looking forward to using this cookbook throughout the school year when I'm tired, don't have time to spare, and want a hot, satisfying dinner.
