Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Roast chicken

    • kath on October 01, 2017

      This is my go-to roast chicken recipe. If you have a 12-inch cast iron skillet, it is perfect for this easy roast chicken recipe.

  • Oatmeal or other hot cereal

    • dmass on January 24, 2017

      Deliciously creamy. My new recipe for oats.

  • Pasta with broccoli and sausage

    • sldoug on June 26, 2016

      Made this with penne and bulk Italian sausage. The broccoli really mashed down, almost more like pesto than broccoli, except not as flavorful. I didn't serve it with additional parmesan but I should have. The leftovers were milder than the original dish, which was an improvement.

Reviews about this book

  • Huffington Post

    ...designed to help would-be cooks who think they cannot turn on the stove without visual instructions. ...but there's enough adventure here to lead budding cooks into new areas as well.

    I so wish I’d had this book when I started experimenting in the kitchen years ago. But even so, I’m thankful to have it now. Because this is not a cookbook for beginning cooks only.

    As a combined unit it is a very comprehensive, great basic primer for the beginner, the adventurous cook and, dare we say it, even for the person who thinks they know everything...

    His five golden rules should be embraced by anyone who spends time in the kitchen: Anything you cook at home will be good; read the recipe through before starting; it's OK to serve dishes warm...
