Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weeknight Blessing This cookbook delivers much like Melissa's other two books (Well Fed and Well Fed 2) - tasty recipes that never fail! When I cook during the week, this is where I select my recipe from since they truly take less than an hour. I like how the book is divided into sections based on type of protein, making it easy to select a recipe based on what's in my fridge. I am also a fan of how she offers multiple flavour variations for the same base recipe, making it easy to customize and offering variety. My only beef is that my copy has come unbound :( and did so pretty much the first time I opened it. Hopefully that issue has been fixed in later pressings.
