    My one complaint. No table of contents at the beginning. Really. It lists the six sections of different food genres. And then turn to that page to see a list of those recipes. But no master list. I can't remember which category a dish belongs to. And makes it more difficult to browse recipes.

    The recipes seem great but have so many different ingredients and steps with each recipe. These recipes don't seem to be a reflection of real life, unless it is a life of luxury and all the time in the world.

    I liked the casual, speaking to the reader tone, but it felt like it was talking to someone with a more urban (possibly in their twenties) lifestyle. That's not me. Having said that there are about 6 recipes I want to try, including Nutella Rolls, cauliflower with a tahini sauce, and their page of unexpected popcorn toppings.

    This is one of one cookbooks that kicks you in the butt. You want to cook everything — its not the aspirational cook book that just sits on your shelf. Try the Korean ribs. They are to die for. The categories and chapter names are fun and realistic: what to make when you get home late after a bar crawl? This book has you covered.

    I really love this cookbook. It's full of all my comfort foods and I plan to cook my way through it quickly - from the fried rice to the chocolate peanut butter pie. Oh my!
