Well we are on to week two with this book. A great idea with very large selection of meals. We have never purchased so many different things from the supermarket. One small problem is that this is written by a US author and as such all weights are in imperial and not metric, also a number of the ingredients you have to subsititute as you wont find them in the UK so it makes the shopping more time consuming but thats not too much of a problem when you shop online. All in all a great book.

I thought - great, 10 minutes a night for dinner. Ridiculous! Maybe it's ten minutes to make what they suggest and then a half hour of seasoning needed, because no, kidney beans mixed with chopped tomatoes is not classified as a meal. Everything's in imperial measurements. You're supposed to keep rice (cooked) for days on end, which I thought gave you food poisoning. You basically make everything on Sunday (ie 3 hours of cooking on Sunday and then reheat for the rest of the week. You're given a weekly shopping list, but when you realise you don't want one of the meals because it looks inedible or you simply can't buy the ingredients for it because it's American, you have to go through every recipe individually to take out those ingredients. One made me laugh. Instructions for taboulah wheat salad - Open box and make according to instructions on packet. WHAT?!!

In summary - Buy Gordon Ramsay's 'Fast Food'. Fantastic that one.

Also - putting ranch dressing on almost everything is actually NOT healthy.

Are you tired of searching through healthy cookbooks to find a recipe, and then spending more than a hour in preparation? This book was a great find. Your grocery list is prepared, buy your food, prepare in one day (about 1 hour), and you're set for the week. The food is delicious (and healthy). If Dena Irwin writes another cookbook in this manner, she will definately have a sale from me.

This is quick, healthy, yummy stuff! My wife has been using this book and has more free time because of it. I simply like the variety and quality of food that she now cooks.
