Rated 5 out of 5 by SPURT GREAT COOKBOOK!
I love, love, love this cookbook. The fact that many are cooked in a skillet makes it easy, no heating the house using the oven in the summer here in Texas. The recipies!!! GREAT JOB Michael---please do more!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheena59 Delicious, fast and easy!
I have tried at least 7 recipes from this book, several more than once, and they are all absolutely delicious! My husband is a hard core "Ragu" in a jar guy, however.... he absolutely loves the putanesco spaghetti, the chicken with feta rigatoni, and every other recipe that I have tried including the tuna with orchietta (sp?) pasta! Okay, the fact that my husband the picky eater loves these recipes tells me they are really, really, really good! The fact that they are really, really simple and fast, makes me love them just that much more since I'm the one cooking! This book is a keeper for me and I highly recommend it to everyone. I've never tried Michael's recipe's from any of his shows or books so I was hesitant to purchase, however, he's an IRON Chef for goodness sake so I felt I had to try and was pleasantly surprised and pleased!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bleslie Disappointed....
Ordered 3 of his books because I'm a fan of his and of his cooking on The Chew. I got one for myself and 2 as gifts. I received mine first. After looking at the recipes I was so disappointed to find recipes that included items that are far from my budget. Even though recipes only included a few items some were so simple that even a novice cook as myself thought "really?" this is a recipe and not just a presentation for a restaurant item? Well, sent the other 2 back should have sent them all since I will not be using mine. Not sure where he was going with this book but I certainly don't have a budget making a simple recipe for my family using this cookbook. I've ordered many cookbooks from QVC. Not one of my favorites.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer very disappointed
Based on the presentation I expected recipes with 5 ingredients that I could cook for 5 minutes.
Neither is true in this book, not to mention what others here have stated with regard to unusual ingredients being needed. The prep for some of the recipes will keep me from using the book as I had expected. There are a few I might try on weekends but overall I am disappointed.

I usually like Michael Symon but am not happy with this cookbook.

Disappointed! Love Michael Symon and his recipes on the Chew - However this book did not include more than 1 or 2 recipes that I would try. Too many recipes required nuts
(nut allergy) and/or special "trip to the store" ingredients which all seemed very similar. Disposed of all packaging so will dispose of this book and just continue watching Michael on the Chew as he always makes yummy recipes on tv - Too bad not Here!
