Synopsis: A collection of over 200 recipes containing 5 ingredients or less with some easy prep for even the most novice or your youngest chef.
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: This book offered a nice selection of unusual, healthy recipes for both kids and grown-ups. Not being your usual light meal options, the meals were incredibly easy to prepare. Due to SOME of the ingredients and recipes, a potential purchaser might want to take a look at brick/mortar store or library prior to buying. Otherwise, most recipes had simple/common ingredients, which should be easy to access. Sections consisted of each of the three meals, plus snacks and desserts.
There are really a whole lot of cookbooks out there similar to this format.
Source: Netgalley for Andrews McMeel PublishingWould I recommend? : Yes, I would. Although I must admit that this isn't my favorite from this publisher and the first one of their cookbooks that I have reviewed that I won't be purchasing. I thought that the recipes were a bit simplistic FOR MY COOKING LEVEL and not as unique as some of their other cookbooks. This is a publisher that if I see them offering a cookbook for review on Netgalley I request it sight unseen due to the uniqueness of their selections.
