"Full of flavor!"
4 stars"

I have used this book at least once a week since getting it and have found every meal easy and full of flavor. You won't make the meals in 15 minutes to start with, but no meal has taken longer than 30 minutes from start to table.

Jamie makes dinner time easy and satisfying for everyone, even the busy.
