I like Sheila Thigpen’s style! The 5-Ingredient Fresh and Easy Cookbook: 90+ Recipes For Busy People Who Love to Eat Well is her excellent cookbook that is full of good, healthy recipes that real people will actually want to cook and eat. Many of the recipes are from her popular blog, Life, Love and Good Food, which is also excellent. Like the cookbook, it is full of down-to-earth recipes that are doable.
Not only do the recipes call for 5 ingredients (plus a few things like salt and pepper which don’t count), making for quick cooking and assembly, the instructions are easy-to-follow and suitable for all cooks from beginning to advanced. There is an excellent Blackberry Cobbler recipe, as well as a Rosemary Dijon Chicken Skillet (easy and yummy), Sheet Pan Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili. My queue is long and varied, and I can see me and others preparing dishes from this cookbook for months. There are appetizers, salads, soups, mains, and desserts – something for everyone in this cookbook.
The only negative to this cookbook is that there aren’t enough photographs. The photographs that are included, however, are excellent, but readers and cooks will have to take their own photos because the dishes are attractive, as well as mouthwatering.
The 5-Ingredient Fresh and Easy Cookbook: 90+ Recipes For Busy People Who Love to Eat Well is a cookbook that belongs on every cookbook shelf; there are dozens of good recipes that can be made quickly, with minimal ingredients. This one is highly recommended. It is great for a gift for beginning cooks and bored cooks.
