With 30 minutes we could cook a 3-course meal, do some laundry, run the dishwasher and whittle a horse from a spare piece of wood. In the real world, when you’re dashing from one evening activity to another, dinner sometimes needs to come together in 10 minutes or less.

Review Update: Completed all the recipes in the book, and am almost all the way through a second time
My boyfriend and I LOVE this book. If you love efficiency, you will too. It's not gourmet - you probably wouldn't impress anyone with these recipes, but they're tasty, well balanced, and sooo easy. The book just makes life simpler by doing all the planning for you - you know that every night, you'll have everything you need to make a quick, healthy, hot meal.
I think we found about 4 recipes in the book total that we didn't like very much - and we simply modified them a bit and are now happily working our way through a second time. Everything I said in my original review (below) is still true...we have a quick, easy, low-clean up dinner every night, a healthy home-cooked lunch every day and we've been spending about $3-$4 per meal to do it.

Original Review: Three Weeks In
You need to try this book - it's fantastic. My boyfriend and I have been using it for a few weeks now and can't stop talking about how great it is. Every night, we make dinner, eat it and have all the dishes done within half an hour. We pack the leftovers in tupperware and have lunch for the next day. The best part is that we don't have to plan or make up shopping lists, and the food is (amazingly) both tasty and healthy. Of course, there are a few dud recipes - I think in three weeks we came across two dishes that we didn't like very much, but we've taken notes on how we'll substitute something else next time, and are still really excited about the book.

Positives in our experience
1. We're saving a lot of time
- No more planning or making up shopping lists
- Shopping is a breeze- the shopping lists in the book are categorized
- We honestly spend only about ten minutes every night on dinner (except Sunday, when it's just a few hours)
- Less preparation = less clean up.

2. We're saving money
- The meals are very well sized. Because the meals are designed for four, we eat half for dinner and half for lunch the next day. It's the perfect amount for us- no eating out, no buying lunches!
- So far, we've been spending about $90 each week on the necessary food. That's feeding two people, two meals a day, six days a week...not bad at all for healthy, home-cooked food, and that $90 also includes the money we spend on breakfast items.
- Less impulse buying. We know exactly what we need, so we don't end up buying things we never eat. We go into the store with a mission, and don't stop to think things like, "well, maybe we can eat this later this week"
- We have our shopping lists planned for the next 12 weeks. That means we can look ahead and buy non-perishables when they're on sale, but only buy as many as we'll use.

3. We're eating well

Negatives:
- Every now and then we end up with half a can of something left over, or something like that. However, this is pretty normal when you're doing any kind of cooking. Not a big deal.
- The books calls for a lot of frozen/canned vegetables instead of fresh. Of course, this is how you can afford to have quick meals, but sometimes it's nice to substitute the fresh stuff.

I love this cookbook, but I know a few people who wouldn't. It all depends on your goals and expectations. I have no problems with shortcuts, and no problems with modifying recipes/menus to suit my tastes. Some of my friends would be horrified at using bagged salads or boxed rice mixes, and some would feeled ripped off if they couldn't follow the menus to the letter. Not me.

The book includes 12 weeks of planned menus, a well-organized shopping list for each week, and some extras at the back (e.g., easy crockpot recipes, quick dessert ideas). Each recipe is accompanied by nutritional information.

I arm myself with the shopping list and go to the supermarket once. Then we eat all week on that one trip. I write down the week's menus and post them in the kitchen, so there's no more wondering about what's for dinner.

And the recipes are super easy. We keep surprising ourselves with how quickly we manage to put well-balanced meals on the table without monumental effort.

What you need to know:

1. The weekly recipes each make four rather large servings.
2. The weekly menus don't include Saturdays.
3. A lot of the week's food needs to be prepared on Sunday, and that will take significantly more than 10 minutes (probably an hour or two of kitchen work).
4. The weeknight meals often involve heating or re-heating things in a microwave.
5. Some menus include pre-packages foods, like bagged salads or boxed rice mixes.
6. There's at least one meatless meal a week. Sometimes more.

What you shouldn't need to be told:

1. You can modify the menus. We sit down and review the week's menu, then decide what to change. I take a pencil and modify the shopping list and the menus so that next time I don't have to think about it. (For instance, we replace broccoli with green beans, maybe add a steak for my husband if the veggie meal doesn't look filling enough to him.)
2. You can modify the recipes. We would rather bake potatoes fresh on Monday than nuke pre-baked potatoes from Sunday. It only adds a few more moments of effort.
3. You can modify the ingredients. Offended by bagged salad? Make a fresh one. You're still saving time on the rest of the preparations. Don't want to dice fresh tomatoes? Buy canned and save even more time.

Seriously, this cookbook is a wonder for us. Plus I find we're willing to try meals we might not have otherwise tried, because (1) the recipes are so easy and (2) we're having so much fun.

There is one drawback for me: I keep getting distracted by the happy anticipation of creating the next meal!

I have a shelf full of highly rated cookbooks, but always had issues with finding the time, experience, and organization to use them. Domestic I am not, but eating out all the time is expensive and unhealthy so I found this fantastic little book (thanks for all the reviews, everyone).

This book is perfect for us beginners and/or busy people!

I have been using this book for three weeks, and it has been a lifesaver in my home! Sure the Sunday recipes take an hour or two (this is when it useful to get a wife, husband, older child, or roommate to help out) but the weeknight recipes are SUPER EASY (5-15 minutes max). Furthermore, I really love how the book compiles grocery lists for each week. The recipes are healthy balanced meals (low-cal, low-fat and low-sodium) and come with nutritional lists (great for those of us watching our weight).

One final note: The portions are generous, and serving sizes are 4 (great for families). But if you only have 1 or 2 people in your home it's adviseable to half the ingredient portions once you get your feet wet.
