I was all set to buy this book, then I thought I should check the library first. I'm so glad I did as the recipes in this book are extremely boring, have little flavor, and over half of them wouldn't interest my family anyway. I just decided to do my own menu planning using AllRecipes.com.

Even though I'm an experienced cook, I couldn't find ways to adapt these recipes to make them taste like anything.

I perused Saving Dinner by Leanne Ely recently. Cant really recommend it I tried three recipes and . . . while they werent bad recipes, they did not impress my family and I wont be making them again. I don't consider my family to be picky or hard to cook for.

But, I did like some of her time-saving tips and healthy alternatives. The cookbook is nicely arranged by season for those who live in colder climates and want soup in the winter and cold dishes in the summer.

Love this book and all the recipies but its for a family of 6 and we're a family of 2. Recipies are easy and don't require exotic ingredients

More than just a cookbook. Divided by season, each menu includes maindish recipes, side dish suggestions and an itemized grocery list. Lots of helpful hints and short cuts too.

Very good book, wonderful ideas. However, my family doens't like fish of any kind, so I've had to make so many changes to the recipies (1 per week is fish) that I don't need to keep it. FlyLady recommended.
