No photos but recipes have a nice, easily-skimmed layout. The directions, however, are in a light-gray font that looks completely faded out in less-than-bright light. Eleven chapters with a nice section on menu planning. Overall, I like this book. It has simple, no-frills recipes with fairly standard pantry ingredients. A good choice for cooks who like to keep things simple. ( )

I love the recipes in this book. They are so easy to make and they taste good. Highly recommended for the not-so-talented cook. ( )

this is a fantastic cookbook. not only does it have great recipes (which are ready in a flash, more often than not, as well as being brief in the ingredients), it encouraged me to remember that the best dishes i serve are often the ones in which a very few items shine forth in their best light. Handy for anyone, vegetarian or not, but especially for the cook who wants to whip up a veggie dish without breaking the bank at the market. ( )
