Celebrity chef, Ryan Scott, is the author of The No-Fuss Family Cookbook: Simple Recipes for Everyday Life, a cookbook filled with fairly simple recipes that are suitable for families. This cookbook has all the elements of an excellent cookbook: easy recipes, ingredients that most of us have in our pantry and freezer, beautiful photographs (mostly of the dishes, but an extra dose of pictures of his daughter; he obviously thinks she’s adorable and more interesting than the food), and notes at the beginning of each recipe that give explanations.

The recipes are written in a succinct, easy-to-follow manner, so everyone – beginning to advanced cooks – can easily turn out the dishes so they are picture perfect. While there are dozens of fairly appealing recipes, there are none that absolutely “blow me away.” Some are interesting enough to consider making, but none made me excited enough to rush to the kitchen to prepare immediately. The cookbook does include a nice chapter with breakfast dishes, as well as soups, salads, snacks, pasta dishes, dishes for dinner, and desserts. The title lets readers know that the dishes are geared for everyday meals; while they are great for everyday, they can be put together fairly quickly, and are suitable for weeknights, but they tend to be a bit boring.

If you are a cookbook collector and like cookbooks by celebrity chefs, you’ll want to pick this one up. Some of the recipes are definitely worth preparing for your family.
