From the Publisher

Claire Robinson, the hot new Food Network star of 5 Ingredient Fix and Food Network Challenge, helps people get dinner on the table with little fuss and a few great ingredients.

The quest for simple, affordable, and fresh, mouthwatering food is over. 5 INGREDIENT FIX helps put delicious and sophisticated meals on the table in a snap. With people struggling to simplify, streamline, and budget, the Food Network''s Claire Robinson is here to help. Cooking doesn''t have to be complicated to be impressive; simplifying the process with fewer ingredients saves time, frustration, and ultimately, money. From breakfast treats like Brioche French Toast with Strawberries and Cream to no-fuss meals like Grown-up Grilled Cheese and Iceberg Wedges with Buttermilk Dressing to a romantic dinner of Grilled Scallops with Saffron Aioli and Green Goddess Rice, all of Robinson''s recipes have five or fewer ingredients. A quick trip to the supermarket for one bag of groceries, and a delicious, restaurant-quality meal can be on the table in no time.

When I received 5 Ingredient Fix I immediately started flipping through the pages. I love cook books with few ingredients and quick cooking time since we are very busy family. This cook book is organized into categories from Breakfast, Drinks to Main course and Sides. There is a letter to Claire's readers along with a list of pantry/kitchen staples. I haven't had the chance to try out much just the Brown Butter Banana Muffins. I forgot to take pictures while baking them since it was early but I can't really take a picture of the end product since there are only a few left. I will have to make them again! They turned out great along with smelling up the house! Yummy. I can't wait to try some of the main course stuff, looks easy and good. I will review recipes from this book I'm sure as I go through it :) This is definitely a cook book of elegance and not everyday food for my house but I really enjoyed it just the same. I know we will try a lot of the recipes for our "special" dinner nights for DH and I. Maybe we will get more of those in the future.
