‘I can't cook.’ I hear that all the time. And it's not that you can'tit's that you don't. It's that we've been wrecked by cooking shows with their millions of complicated steps and crazy-ass ingredients. Ingredients you can't find, let alone pronounce. That's not how I want to cook. I want to eat well, but I don't want it to take a year. Who's making stuff like 'Truffled Peruvian Mountain Squab with Chilled Framboise Foam' anyway?
"So this book is about food that's big in taste and small in effort. Just great-tasting stuff with no fancy techniques and definitely no over-the-top ingredients, as in everything-comes-from-a-regular-supermarketcool concept, huh? It's just a bunch of recipes you'll easily be able to make and enjoy."

Just got this book 2 weeks ago before Sam's 2nd cookbook came out. I actually read it cover to cover and laughed out loud! My husband even thinks its' funny. I've tried 3 recipes and all were delicious and easy!
Guys will like this book as much as the gals in the kitchen. Uses several cooking methods and simple ingredients. The results are delicious!
Sam is a genius with these big but easy dishes! I made frito chili bags and they were amazing! Thanks Sam you rock!
If you've ever watched the show, the book totally sounds like him. It's way fun and the recipes are great... He makes me want to cook!
This is the only 'cookbook' I have ever read without bothering to look at the recipes. I feel as if I know Sam just by reading his take on life! He makes entertaining sound like fun with a little side order of food and drink - what a goal. This will be my new gift for friends and family for any occasion - holiday, birthday, dinner invite,......
