Change Your Life: Book Recs Based on the Fab Five

I was very worried when I heard Queer Eye was in Lawrence (as evidenced by their stop at our own 3-windowed 6th street McDonalds!). My first thought was to run home and clean my house as fast as possible. I’ve been a longtime fan and I love the reboot, so I’ve been waiting for season 3 since I first saw Bobbie Berk’s Instagram post last August. When it premiered on March 15th I binged the… (more)

I like to watch Jamie when he's on TV; I love his enthusiasm and the way he makes everything seem so easy. I find, however, that when I'm presented with one of his cookbooks, my basic skills aren't up to the task. That's on me, I know. I also dislike his dedication to meat; I wish he'd modify his views on that, but of course he has a right to his opinions just as the rest of us do.

This is a great cookbook for people who want to spend a minimal amount of time in the kitchen. While some of the ingredients are not extremely common, I've managed to find most of them at different grocery stores in my area. The title is a bit misleading though because certain things like salt, pepper, and olive oil are not listed as one of the five ingredients even if they are used in a recipe.

five ingredients, but not five regular ingredients. Nothing in this book I would cook.

A rich compendium of recipes that are not.... necessarily familiar.
example: Thai red chicken soup, meltin mustardy beef, fish pie, chicken pot pie with puff past;

Lovely format .. recipe on the left, classy photo full size on right page.
If you want to try something new in cooking, you'll find a handful or more of recipes you'll try.
My difficulty with these recipes is the price to buy "fresh" herbs for a menu item; and, I can't help but wonder why the dried herb equivalents are included as an alternative ingredient.

I like Jamie Oliver's creativity ... but I'll still need to hunt to find his approach to more typical recipes because I'm not much of a more exotic cook. (yes, still working on getting the basics).
