Lucinda Scala Quinn writes her recipes as if she is talking to you in your kitchen. Very easy to follow and so far the recipes we have tried as a family have proven a hit. Lots of interesting bits of info as well spread throughout the book. An excellent armchair read as well as a kitchen essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Men and Boys - 28 Mar. 2014
By C.S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book initially to take my son up a level in his cooking education. I'm happy to report that not only has that been successful, but I have thoroughly enjoyed cooking from this book as well. The recipes are simple, but not too simple. I've had no trouble finding any of the ingredients, and most kitchens have the equipment called for. Nor are her techniques overly complicated - she makes cooking these dishes pretty straightforward. They are also family-style foods, the kind of food that everyone gathers at the dinner table together for. I love that.

My son is a young teen, but he has enjoyed learning from this book. He already had knife skills and basic cooking skills (eggs, grilled cheese) but nothing too complicated. I thought this book would take the next step, more complicated recipes, and it has. While he's made many things successfully, his favorite is the Malaysian Style Chicken and Shrimp Laksa. He was so proud of himself, and he's made it several times since.

I think that this book is worth purchasing for her chicken-broth elixer and her pocket-pies alone. Those pocket pies are saving my life with a teen-age boy around! And the chicken broth elixer - so easy, and quick, and delicious for sick days. And the Asian-style pork roast is absolutely delicious!!! A nice change of pace from standard pork roast. Actually - everything I've made in this book I've really enjoyed, as has my family.

While I understand why she titled the book what she did - she does have a family of boys, after all! - this book is NOT just for boys. I also think this is simple enough, but not TOO simple, to give as gifts to newlyweds, students graduating from college and going out on their own, or just someone who wants to learn to cook better. I've given (3) copies as gifts already, will probably give a few more. Highly recommended book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is bursting at the seams with all kinds of information for the beginner and mediocre cook. 16 May 2015

My favorite cooking show!!! And now my favorite cookbook!!!!This would make a wonderful wedding gift, so many delicious recipes with detailed information and still on the healthy side any person would be able to impress their partner or guest with Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner and Snacks without a fret of making a disaster in the kitchen. From filling your pantry to having the essential kitchen tools without over buying, even how to care for your kitchen tools!!! And the many family stories and memories of how the recipe became to be... and bonus--- she even encourages not to be afraid to change the recipe and make it your own with product you may like. For foodies that would like to try a go in the kitchen,I highly recommend this Cookbook <3

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite cookbook (and I own A LOT of them!) 10 Sept. 2012
By C. Soto - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this cookbook, because it adheres to my 3 rules of cookbook purchases: 1) short list of simple, easy to find ingredients; 2) easy prep so I can get on with my life, and 3) delicious outcome I can't wait to prepare again. She's got great tips within the pages, beautiful photos (that my results actually replicate!) and easy to follow recipes. The banana bread recipe alone is worth the book's price -- my husband can't get enough of it, and though I don't really care for banana bread I find myself stealing bites now and then when walking past it in the kitchen. A worthwhile purchase for any cook, not just for those feeding men!

5.0 out of 5 stars This cookbook is wonderful!! 2 Jan. 2014
By Emily H. Laguna - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I received this cookbook about two weeks ago, read it almost cover to cover (which I have never felt compelled to do with a cookbook before), and ran out to buy ingredients for several recipes that I wanted to try first. So far everything has turned out delicious, especially the chicken and dumplings. She provides lots of ideas for vegetables, which I am always trying to add more of into our diet. Despite her obvious extensive knowledge of food and cooking, she provides simple and straightforward instructions and makes you feel like you can tackle anything. I also like that she gives lots of practical tips, like how to make chicken broth, lists of things that are freezeable, how to substitute ingredients, etc. I was previously afraid of dealing with whole chickens and big cast iron skillets, and I have since handled both successfully. My large cast iron skillet (which had been sitting in my cupboard for 3-4 years untouched) has now been seasoned and used at least 4-5 times in the last 2 weeks. This cookbook is great for everyone, not just men and boys.
6/2/14 UPDATE: 6 months later and I am still finding myself paging through it and finding new interesting recipes, depending on my mood of the day. The spanish rice and easy chocolate cake are great!

5.0 out of 5 stars and my family loved everything I made from it 17 July 2016
By A. M. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third time I've purchased this cookbook. The first time was when it came out, years ago, and my family loved everything I made from it. I bought the second copy for my daughter-in-law and she's been super happy with it. This last copy is for my son, who's in his first apartment. The recipes are easy to follow, don't require unusual ingredients and I've yet to find one that isn't a hit. Her sesame chicken wings is a HUGE favorite and is better than any fried chicken we've had.
