MyRecipes is branching out into the world of cookbooks with a newsstand cookbook, 5-Ingredient Weeknight Dishes. In this handy volume, we’ve done the recipe searching for you and selected 101 of the best 5-ingredient recipes (not including water, salt, pepper or cooking spray) from the more than 69,000 recipes on the site. The easy recipes come from our partner magazines—All You, Coastal Living, Cooking Light, Real Simple, Southern Living, Sunset—and our book partner, Oxmoor House.
We provide prep and cook times for the recipes, and each recipe has a photo, so you can see what you’re about to enjoy. In addition, you’ll also get recipe tips and shortcuts from the Test Kitchens, suggestions from the MyRecipes audience about ingredient substitutions and recipe variations, plus excerpts from “Ask the Expert” featuring commonly asked cooking questions.
We think that, at the end of a busy day, a recipe with only 5 ingredients feels doable. And a great collection of 5-ingredient recipes is like an extra pair of hands in the kitchen. And of course, if you need even more recipes, you can turn to your computer or smart phone. We’ll still be here for you.
