user friendly cookbook with simple recipes
Reviewed in the United States on July 26, 2017
As others have mentioned, many of these recipes are one's with which many are familiar and they are sort of rich, indulgent foods. I usually like to pick a cookbook and use it for the week as I meal plan, but can't do that with this one. I like how this taught some basics and I could add them to our family's rotation (I'd never made homemade enchiladas before).
I think my biggest complaint is that after purchasing her cookbook I read on her blog that Rachel doesn't eat meat and limits her dairy. So I felt a little cheated that these aren't recipes she herself eats. I might be wrong about that. I'm curious to see if her second cookbook is a little more true to life for her.
All in all, it's a user friendly cookbook that if you didn't grow up in the kitchen helps one make simple, delicious food. My whole family loves most of the things I've made out of it.
