I've tried 14 recipes out of this book, and my husband has declared each to be a "keeper." Most of these are practical and can fit into our hectic lives. Even more amazingly, our picky teen has liked most of the recipes.
My only real problem has been locating low-fat Parmesan cheese, an ingredient included in many recipes. Sure, I can find it in a green bottle, but I've searched, to no avail, for the "real" thing in our rural area. But overall, these recipes contain easily found ingredients, with an emphasis on fresh. Anyone buying this book should be advised to plant some basil and parsley!
Some of the recipes have been elegant as well as delicious - Greek tilapia (no olives, fortunately!), zucchini boats, and eggplant parmesan. I've served them to company, and we were all happy. And the fact that these recipes are healthy? What a bonus!
Devin Alexander Is Amazing. I love this book, and cook out of it often, my whole family loves everything I make from this and the other book fast food fix..
