Michael Symon's 5 in 5 365: 150 Quick Dinners, Sides, Holiday Dishes, and Brunches for Every Season Reviews
I love the simplicity of the recipes, with the easy to follow directions, and they are certainly quick and affordable. Included are delicious dishes that take little effort, but have depths of flavor.
There are 165 recipes for Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Holidays, and with beautiful illustrations. I've tried the Sweet Onion Smothered Pork Chops that I would give a 5 * rating, and a very simple Grape & Feta Salad that was delicious! I have many more recipes marked to try. Also included ...more
I absolutely love the premise of this cookbook - building recipes around the seasonal ingredients available to you at any given time. It's such a great way to think about food! And who better to pull together a cookbook about seasonal cooking! Michael Symon is one of my favorite 'celebrity' chefs! He has such a realism and honesty about him that I find refreshing.
What I most enjoyed about this cookbook is the mix of ingredients explored in the recipes. There are traditional ingredients being off ...more
I loved the idea of this—five fresh, seasonal ingredients that can be cooked in five minutes. I work eight hours a day (occasionally 10-12) and don’t want to spend my evening cooking. I’d like to make something healthy and fresh in less than thirty minutes.
So, I picked this up and chose three recipes from the fall/winter categories. I chose one “sketchy” sounding one, one I knew HAD to be good, and one I wasn’t sure on.
Pork & Cranberries
I wasn’t sure on this one, but the thought of Thanksgiv ...more
I enjoy watching Michael Symon on Food Network so this seemed like an interesting read, and it was. He looks at seasonal foods and figures out the best combinations for quick and flavorful meals. Would never have thought of some combinations and even less, some of the preparations. Need to try some of these.
I discovered Michael Symon years ago on Iron Chef America, and I really loved his approach on food, and the meals he prepared. I bought The Chew’s first cookbook, but never owned a Michael Symon cookbook until now. This cookbook is great for families, single people, and especially those who want to eat home-cooked meals without too much labor, and less time in the kitchen. The visuals are beautiful, the variety of recipes can please anyone at the dinner table, and I love that there are a selecti ...more
These recipes are very simple and require few ingredients, although many of the same ingredients appear over and over again (mustard is everywhere). Many of the ingredients aren't ones I favor, and the recipes were so simple you don't really even need the book. There are only a couple of recipes in here I am likely to try. I was a little disappointed as I love Michael Symon, but I think it's a good book for the right cook.

I always enjoy Michael Symon recipes. The recipes help me cook at a higher level using new techniques and ingredients.
