|It will make a nice addition to anyone’s cookbook library.|
Anyone familiar with Gooseberry Patch cookbooks knows that they are generally community-type books composed of recipes gathered from cooks all over the country. Quick & Easy Recipes with Help...: From My Instant Pot, Air Fryer, Slow Cooker, Waffle Iron & More is an excellent cookbook that not only includes recipes from cooks all over the country, but recipes using helpers such as appliances (slow cooker, Instant Pot, waffle iron, blender, and air fryer), as well as skillets and sheet pans. The recipes are mostly easy with minimal ingredients, so they can be successfully made by beginners as well as advanced cooks.
Although every dish isn’t pictured, many are, and the photographs are beautiful and mouthwatering. The recipes included in each chapter will appeal to almost everyone; there are vegetarian dishes, as well as snacks, appetizers, side dishes, salads, main dishes with beef, poultry, and pork, and plenty of great desserts. Almost every owns the appliances featured, and they definitely speed up the meal prep process. The only thing the book lacks is fish and seafood recipes, but there are enough other things, that this shouldn’t prevent anyone from loving this cookbook. The recipes have influences from all over the world from Asia to Europe and many of them are All-American. The recipes are written in traditional form, and are easy to follow. As is typical of Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, this one is colorful and fun to look at as well as cook from.
All told, this fun cookbook has something that will appeal to the entire family, even picky children (and husbands). It will make a nice addition to anyone’s cookbook library.
