I had reservations due to the Paltrow connection, but they were needless. The recipes are simple, innovative and delicious. In addition, she will give variations on a recipe, encouraging new cooks to use what they have in the house instead of running out to the store for ingredients that would be infrequently used. I had thought that I would only look up new recipes online from now on; this cookbook has changed my thinking and I will be buying my own copy.

We cooked from this book for our monthly Cookbook Club and it was soooooo delicious! There was a great range of recipes from simple to complex, which gives a lot of needed flexibility for quick weeknight dinners or impressive weekend feasts. Although the theme of "simple victories" was a little over-done, I did like the theme in general - where every recipes teaches you a new skill to use in the kitchen. Cookbooks like this one do more than give you a great new recipe - they make you a better cook. That's a huge win!

This has been my go to cookbook since it was released. The recipes are easy to use and delicious. The author’s lovely personality shines through making the book a delight to cook from.
