The Dinner Plan Cookbook Review


””



Title: The Dinner Plan
Author: Kathy Brennan and Carol Campion
Published: September 19, 2017, Harry N Abrams
No. of Pages: 256
Cover Price: $29.99 Hardcover, $11.99 Kindle



A perfect cookbook for busy cooks, The Dinner Plan, addresses five problem areas in getting weeknight dinners on the table: Make-Ahead, Staggered, One-Dish, Pantry, and Extra-Fast. Along with excellent recipes that real people actually will want to make, The Dinner Plan is filled with time-saving hints and helps to improve every busy person’s experience when preparing dinner.

The recipes contained in this book are unique – none of the same-old, same-old mainstays that tend to be mundane and boring. Although the recipes have influences from all over the world (Mexico, Middle East, Cuba, etc.), the emphasis seems to be Asian, and there are easy versions of popular Asian recipes that are must-try. Who doesn’t like Summer Rolls? They have deconstructed these delicious morsels and made them into a delicious salad. There is an incredible recipe for Curried Coconut Noodle Soup (Thai chicken noodle soup), and several quick, easy stir-fry dishes.

The book also includes some incredible salads and side dishes. The Spicy Cucumber Sticks are easy and crunchy, and the Jicama with Red Onions, Oranges, and Cilantro is light, flavorful and delicious. Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce is both yummy and healthy, and the Chickpea and Kale salad is good and trendy.

All said, The Dinner Plan is a “Must-Own” cookbook for everyone who is busy. It’s perfect for those who prefer not to cook, because the recipes are quick and easy. It’s perfect for those who love to cook, because there is such a variety of great, mouthwatering recipes. Every time I pull this book out, I add more recipes to my queue. I also plan to include a copy of this book in my adult children’s Christmas packages this year because there are so many excellent options that I know their families will enjoy. Rarely does a cookbook come along that is this good; almost everyone will enjoy this cookbook.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
