My Review:
This is a wonderful cookbook. It is actually written for you and your partner to make a meal together. In my house my husband gets in my way, so I cook he eats. A few weeks ago I had surgery on my right arm and have no use of my it for at least 5 more weeks, and I am right handed. Have you ever tried to peel a potato or slice an onion one handed? Doesn't work so well. With the simple recipes in this book the King of Frozen Lasagna can keep me from starving to death. Most of the ingredients in the recipes are found in just about every pantry as well. So we are actually both in the kitchen cooking together. I tell him what to add and he does it. Maybe this is not the way this book was meant to play out but it is working perfectly for us.

I love how there are full meal ideas with each recipe right down to the wine choice. The book is also broken down into sections so finding a meat recipe, a veggie recipe, and a sauce is so easy. There are 80 recipes in this cookbook.  They are also easy enough to double and triple if you are feeding more then 2.

I have actually made a few of the recipes since receiving this book. My favorite one so far, not that they haven't all been wonderful is, Marinated Pork Tenderloin (pictured below).  This was very easy to prepare and cook. The meat was so juicy and flavorful, my husband and I loved it. He even took leftovers for work the next day and after being reheated in the microwave it was still juicy.
