Review by Library Journal (2011-12-09)

Miller (Quick Fix Meals), a nutritionist and host of Food Network's Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller, brings her fans more of the quick and nutritious meals they crave. She not only keeps the ingredients lists short but also offers a brief list of items that cooks should have on hand: olive oil, cooking spray, salt, and pepper. Miller's philosophy is that if cooks can prepare a meal in about 20 minutes with just a few ingredients, families will eat more nutritious, home-cooked meals.

Her delicious recipes include Spring Pea Soup (which calls for frozen green peas, scallions, and ham), Strawberry Margarita Chicken Salad (lime juice, strawberries, and celery evoke the flavors of a margarita with none of the alcohol), and Cuban Steaks with Mint, Garlic, and Lime. Each recipe features nutritional information for calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

Verdict: Miller supplies busy families with fast, nutritious recipes that require only five ingredients or less. This useful compendium will motivate readers to cook more meals at home.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★by Fast and simple recipes! From “Top Chef” to “Cupcake Wars,” my family loves watching food and cooking shows. And for busy families like ours, one of the most helpful cooking shows on television today is Robin Miller’s. And the show’s cookbook, Robin Takes 5, has to be among the most helpful cookbooks as well. In it, she offers 500 recipes, with 5 ingredients or less (which are only 500 calories or less), for cooking 5 nights a week at 5 p.m. Further, it seems like many of the recipes take about 5 minutes to make as well. Yet they’re really flavorful, fun, and family-friendly.For instance, the other night my family loved her “Lettuce Wraps with Grilled Steak and Cheese.” All you do is grill and slice a flank or skirt steak, then serve with butter lettuce leaves to wrap up a variety of toppings (to each his own), like a healthy taco, served Thai-style. It was a super fun way for a quick and delicious meal, that my family loved. Even those who still refer to salad as “bunny food.” And it was so fast. Plus, there are another 499 Asian, Italian, and homestyle recipes, just as easy to make in Robin Takes 5. Love!! 05/01/2012
