This is one of those books I havered over on Netgalley, requested, and then regretted. After I clicked on it I had the sinking sensation that this was going to be filled with all the sorts of things a couple of my coworkers obsess over which, quite frankly, make me roll my eyes just a little: chia seeds and soy milk and gluten-free whatever.
It is so very, very not that.
What this is, is one of the most practical and user-friendly cookbooks I’ve seen in a long stretch of days. There are quite a number of recipes I can see myself making soon. I kind of expected the recipes to be even simpler than they actually are, but they are by no means challenging – they’re definitely aimed at someone with limited time and money and will to create cuisine, who still wants something better than tv dinners.
I do wonder, though, about naming a recipe “Make Ahead Chewy Chicken”. Does anyone really want to try chewy chicken?
The usual disclaimer: I received this book via Netgalley for review.
