By Rachel Ray

I love cookbooks. I've loved them even before I learned how to cook just for the pictures. Now that I do cook and enjoy cooking, I depend on them to help me make meals that my family will enjoy that are easy enough for a rookie to handle.

This is my second Rachel Ray cookbook. The first one had great pictures from her travels for her TV show Best Eats in Town for $40 a Day. This one is based on recipes she's done on 30 Minute Meals.

Let me say that every recipe I've tried so far my family has loved. That's the bottom line. I've tried several of the chicken recipes and even the sweet sausages with horseradish mashed potatoes. Yummy.

Here's what I like about the book. Lots of variety and relatively easy. I like when she says once around the pan for olive oil instead of ¼ tablespoon. But all in all, Martha Stewart's recipe magazines have easier recipes in general than some of Rachel's. She's got 20 ingredients in the average recipe.

Here's what I don't like - not enough pictures and some recipes refer to other recipes. The last thing I want to do when I've got olive oil on my hands (or EVOO as Rachel says) is turn pages to go back and refer to another recipe. That's a pain.

With those two small criticisms, Rachel Ray is always great. I recommend Rachel Ray 365: No Repeats for all courageous cooks. On the Book Beat for KSL Newsradio, I'm Amanda Dickson.
