We are always looking for ways to make things easier on us. Whether it be quicker routes to work, unusual hair styles, or ways to make meals faster and easier. One way to make our meals faster is by checking out Michael Symon’s book, 5 in 5 for Every Season. This book is filled with all kinds of wonderful quick and easy recipes. I was fortunate enough to receive a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
Cooking with Michael Symon
I am a huge fan of Michael Symon, who is an Iron Chef on Food Network‘s Iron Chef America, co-host of ABC’s The Chew, but he is also the co-owner of the restaurant Roast in Detroit, Michigan! When I on maternity leave with Xavier, I got hooked on the show The Chew. I was super excited to hear he was one of the owners of Roast in my hometown. Although, I never got the chance to make it there for a meal.
5 in 5 for Every Season is filled with 165 recipes for quick dinners, sides, holiday dishes, and more that include five fresh ingredients that take 5 minutes of heat to make. You can’t get much easier than that for recipes that are targeted for spring, summer, fall, winter, and holidays! Now, not all recipes only use five ingredients to make the meal. This is because you just can’t always get a fresh cut of meat or freshly squeezed oil. However, you will find that the recipes call for fresh ingredients.
5 in 5 for Every Season has some wonderful recipes like Pork with Broccoli Cashews, Asparagus with Sesame & Orange, Tofu Stir-Fry, Scallops with Chinese Green Beans & Radish, Sirloin Steak with Sweet & Sour Onions & Arugula, Ham & Cheese with Beets & Horseradish, Grilled Chicken Thighs with Edamame & Grapefruit, and Cheesy Broccoli Gratin.
I cannot wait to start making some of the recipes from 5 in 5 for Every Season, although I’m sure I’ll have to adjust many of them due to food allergies in our home.
This would make a great last minute gift for the Chef in your life!
