review 1: I give the author of this book lots of credit for planning these meals out and actually following through with it. I don't think that I would follow this book word for word, but it gave me some great ideas. Some recipes looked very good and I'll hopefully get a chance to try them soon. The idea behind this book is great: more fresh food and no processed food. It's something that I've been trying to incorporate lately.
review 2: I absolutely love this cookbook! It has helped me try different things and keep things seasonal. This book is laid out in 4 sections- spring, summer, fall, and winter. Each season has 4 weeks worth of dinner meals for 4 people- Monday thru Friday (so a week of meals is 5 meals). My biggest thing when trying to switch over to real
... morefoods was getting rid of all my fail safe casseroles and pre-made soups. I really wanted to incorporate more produce into our dinners. It is true that many of the recipes are NOT comfort type food and to some may not be considered "full" meals (though many of them are adaptable). I have let my kids and husband eat frozen burritos and corn dogs on "salad meal" nights if they so choose but I have made my mind and am determined to keep serving it even if they don't consider it a meal and end up digging in the freezer for something else. I can't wait to own this book. Right now I just keep checking it out from the library and have already stained it up from continual use! less
