This review is from: What's for Dinner?: Easy and delicious recipes for everyday cooking (Hardcover)
Admire this lady though I do, this book is a disappointment for me. I was hoping to find lots of fresh ideas for fast week-day family meals but - for me personally - there is a lot that doesn't appeal in the slightest to children (like Smoked Makeral Mexican Tacos, for example). The photographs are lovely and the writing style is charming and amusing but, for me, the recipes are either common old-fashioned favourites which I already make for the family (Cottage Pie, for example) or just too fancy or far removed from what we would enjoy at our house (such as Miso Noodle Broth with Salmon). We are pretty adventurous with our food but my lot have found many of the recipes in this book to be a stretch. There are two that we will be trying. As for the rest, nice but a bit too adventurous to be considered "everyday cooking."
