You Get Exactly What Is Offered
The recipes in this book are exactly as described in the title. They’re all very easy recipes, healthy, with very few ingredients. All of the ingredients are also easily sourced which is very helpful.
I liked how the beginning of each recipe section included a list of each of the recipes with their page number. This would make it very easy to find one that you’ve already tried before and you want to try again.
There are only a few photographs of the recipes throughout the book. Those that are included are only those which are shown at the beginning of each recipe chapter. I was disappointed to find that recipes at the beginning of the chapters are not labeled but was happier when I discovered that the list of recipes at the beginning of the chapter does indicate which recipe is pictured.
After all of the recipes, you’ll find a Measurements And Conversions Chart, References, and two indexes by Type and Title.
