Let’s eat: The 5-Ingredient Fresh and Easy Cookbook 90+ Recipes For Busy People Who Love to Eat Well by Sheila Thigpen

I love the idea of a cookbook that only requires cooks to have a few ingredients per recipe.  It makes me feel that the 90 plus recipes in this book will be easy to make and satisfying too.

As is true for most cookbooks, there are sections on the three daily meals plus additional sections on veggies and sides, snacks and desserts.  Some of the recipes in this book are baked blueberry oatmeal, egg in a hash with sweet potato and bacon, zesty chicken salad, banana party pepper tuna salad, Cuban mojo pork chops and orange rice, crispy oven fried fish sticks,orange kissed carrots, warm apple baked brie, and chocolate pudding cake.  I could go on and on as so many of these recipes look and sound delicious.

The book starts with a great deal of helpful information on things to have in the kitchen, menu planning and more.  There are also many tips on cooking for busy people. The author also shares anecdotes from her life.

One note, recipes in fact have more than five ingredients but some of these are for things most would have on hand like salt, pepper, milk, etc.  Above each recipe are things to know, as for example, “make ahead-nut free-soy free-gluten free.  These headlines can be quite helpful when deciding what to make.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
