ANYONE can make these recipes!
I have never been the best at cooking and for awhile I heavily relied on cereal or eating out. I recently have been "in" to trying to cook. Nothing extravagant, but a HOME cooked meal, nonetheless. This cookbook has simple recipes that are 5 ingredients (or less).
Below, I took some screenshots of the types of recipes in the book and I also took a picture of the enchiladas that I made. (I forgot to do it initially and pulled the leftovers from the fridge and took the picture, haha)
You do not need any type of cooking experience to make this recipes. There are very few ingredients and a step by step guide of how to easily make each recipe. The enchiladas were DELICIOUS and once you get comfortable making the recipe, you can even "ad lib" a bit. You could add diced jalapeños to the enchiladas or add any of your favorite veggies in them, ect.
There are all different kinds of things to make from home made chicken tenders, to buffalo chicken dip, barbecued wings or chicken and waffle sliders! There is a nice, wide variety of choices to pick from.
I would recommend this book to anyone who thinks that they can not cook, people who are short on time and need something easy at their fingertips to make or beginners. I did receive this item free in exchange for my (VERY) honest review!

Easy recipes for the beginner home cook
Recipes for the cooker challenged. These are basic for the most part easy recipes. Although to make the 5 ingredient limit sometimes spices like salt and pepper were left out. That can make for some bland food. So my feeling if you think the recipe could use salt and pepper or other spices I would add it. Lots of slow cooker recipes that sound good and will try.

Our family is either constantly on the go or entirely too lazy to cook, so quick and easy is a must for us. The fewer the ingredients, the faster the cooking process or the ease of cooking always puts a new recipe at the top of the list.
We do not eat certain foods simply because we are picky eaters, not on "diets", so I'm always in the market for cookbooks to steal ideas from to liven up our family dinners and find new ways to cook pretty much the same things. I was able to get quite a few couple from this book, so I'm not going to knock it too much.
I am probably not going to run around recommending it to my friends, but I certainly do not regret purchasing it. This is one of those where I am just going to say "try it for yourself at your own risk" because I am simply indifferent on it.

With a strict budget, it really is difficult to get a ton of ingredients in order to make one recipe. My money has to be stretched as far as I can get it for weekly groceries and in order to do that, I have to make recipes that have very few ingredients. Most recipes that I have seen have more than just 3 to 5 ingredients. However, I was amazed that there was cookbooks where only 5 or fewer ingredients in each recipe. Each recipe really does seem to be very yummy and would not take me too long to cook as well. However, there are a few recipes that does require a slow cooker, which does take a few hours in order to be complete, which is fine especially when I do have the time to allow something so yummy to be cooked. The only thing that I really wanted with this e-book is for pictures of some of the recipes to be in there except for just the recipe, itself. However, without pictures, this is still a great cookbook to use and my family should enjoy anything that I make out of this. The great thing about getting the e-book is that you get another cookbook for free as a gift, which the link is included inside the e-book. This is a great e-book for anyone to purchase. I do recommend it to anyone who wants to be able to stretch their food budget as far as possible. I got this e-book for free or at a heavy discount in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Fast simple and delicious
This is a great simple easy to use recipe book. 5 ingredients is all that it takes to make a yummy home dinner. Great for a beginner chef, new mom or someone that works long hours. This easy to use navigation is easy to follow. The Blueberry Coconut Bars sounds so good. Other recipes such as mashed cauliflower, cordon bleu are just a couple of the easy recipes that can be made.
I received this product in exchange for my honest review and opinion. I like many others also rely on reviews when I purchase items and this review is based on my personal opinion of the product. [...]

Great Simple and Easy Recipes!
This has easily become my go to quick recipe meal solution tool! The recipes are easy with simple directions that wont take long to prepare or cook. I already have a lot of the ingredients in my pantry for several of the recipes so I didn't have to go spend more money on groceries (can you say "frugal?"). I love that it has a variety of recipes so you wont have to cook the same recipe but with different variations over and over again. There are a TON of recipes! I don't need to have another cookbook because this one touches all areas of basic food prep and cooking. It even has conversion charts as a reference tool. The foodie in me is highly impressed with this cookbook.
Note: While I did receive this at a full promotional discount in exchange for my impartial review, all opinions are my own.

Good simple recipes with ingredients you probably already have!
I downloaded this book to Kindle because I liked the idea of having simple recipes handy. I like this book a lot, especially because these recipes are very simple, and as the title suggests only need handful of ingredients. I usually have most of the ingredients for recipes in this book. Nothing too weird or exotic. Kind of foods my family would like to eat.
There are lots of slow cooker recipes, they are so convenient, just dump the ingredients in your slow cooker and your food will be ready by dinner time.
There are lots of chicken recipes, the author must really like chicken. Well, we do, too, so it's fine. There are other types of recipes, too, beef, pork, fish and desert. So far our favorite is Slow cooker beef burritos, which is essentially a recipe for flavorful Mexican shredded beef, which can be used to burritos as suggested or in tacos, enchiladas, or even in taco salad. Delicious!
There are several slow cooker cobbler recipes, they are so simple and makes your house smell like heaven while cooking.
This will be one of my go-to cook book when I need dinner ideas. Again, I love the fact that I usually have most of the ingredients on hand.
This book will be great for beginners as they are very simple recipes, but also good for experienced cooks. We can always use new meal ideas, right?
I downloaded this book to my kindle free in exchange for my honest review.

Easy as pie
Working 40 hours a week can mean a difficult time making meals. I need something fast and easy to do. I received this product at a discount to provide my honest and unbiased opinion. I can take this cookbook with me where ever I go! If I dont' have the ingredients and am at the store, I won't have to worry about writing them down because I have them right on my phone. I love this book and have made several meals from it already. Not like those 5 ingredient books that have the weirdest ingredients in them. Is for every day use!
