    I have tried several of Sam Sifton's recipes from the NYT's (incredibly lucrative) online recipe database. The NYT online presence was Sifton's brainchild and I use it and appreciate it. However, in terms of Sifton's actual recipes: I have never made one that worked. Never. And I am a pretty good cook. Siftonn may be a marketing genius and a decent writer, but that does not a good chef - or even more importantly - good recipe-writer make. Now he is now taking Mark Bittman's recipes - "tweaking" them a bit - and adding his name as recipe author which I think is a shoddy & shameful way to build your chef/recipe-writer credentials.

    Buy. This. Book. I love that there are more no-recipes in the book I want to cook than not. I've used it every night since receiving to make some of the best dinners we've ever had. Do not miss the 'Chicken with Caramelized Onions and Croutons' is a must. The 'Barbeque Shrimp, New Orleans Style' couldn't be simpler. The 'Sauted Greens and Soy Sauce Rice' is now a lunch staple. The 'Seared Lamb Chops and Lemon with Buttered Potatoes' is on the list for the weekend. And try the 'Peanut butter, Sriracha and Pickle' sandwich! To summarize, if I could possibly try, what makes this book so different is it guides you to cook, rather than following a recipe.
