    I'm definitely a fan of Asian food, and enjoy cooking it at home, but I'm not extremely knowledgeable or adventurous with it. I enjoy Japanese hibachi, and my taste for Chinese doesn't good beyond the standards you find at your neighborhood Chinese spot - Sesame Chicken, Sweet n Sour, Beef & Broccoli, egg rolls, you get the idea. With that said, although I didn't find alot of recipes in this book I see myself making, there were about 5 or 6 I have on my to make list.

For the most part the ingredient lists weren't terribly long, and the instructions appear to be pretty easy to understand and very straightforward. I appreciate how Jaden Hair gives commentary on how the recipes fit into her life, and love that there are tons of photos, photos with pretty much every recipe. And I'm really impressed that she(a pretty novice photographer she says) took all the photos herself, in her home.

    Jaden is a funny lady and makes some damn good food. I love a cookbook that you can also enjoy as a book. Jaden's stories before chapters or a recipe only add to the reasons why I love having this on my shelf. Aside from that, the recipes are great. I have never made fried rice that tasted half as good before her. I actually prefer it to takeout, since it has no msg. She really makes you question why someone needs to get takeout at all. Her directions are simple and straightforward and while not Jaden is a funny lady and makes some damn good food. I love a cookbook that you can also enjoy as a book.

Her directions are simple and straightforward and while not every ingredient may be available at your local supermarket, they are not extremely exotic either. I happen to live near a giant Korean grocery, so ingredient seeking is not an issue. The pictures are gorgeous and make you want to try out the recipes for that reason alone. It is not an extensive guide to Asian cuisine, but does cover the basic American tastes as well as a few extras you might not expect.

    The intro had a good section on tools and ingredients. This book is chock-full of recipes and each one is accompanied by a beautiful photo. What I found unique about this Asian cookbook compared to other Asian cookbooks is the Sweets and Libations section-- apple ginger mint ice tea and matcha crepes-- what imagination!

I had time to try only 2 recipes: Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce and Coconut Shrimp, both of which I found a little disappointing. The first, I found too salty-- and would probably cut the soy sauce and add in more sugar in the future. The strength of the coconut shrimp recipe was its speed-- but could probably benefit from a 30-minute marinade in a coconut milk mixture to improve the flavor.

    Every recipe in The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook is illustrated with a photo of the finished dish, making for good inspirational browsing—perfect coffee table material. It opens flat and stays open, which is nice if you’re actually using it to refer to while cooking. Wouldn’t want to get sticky fingerprints on these pages. The book strikes a good balance between personality and practicality. Recipes range from appetizers to dessert and everything in between.

    The book itself is beautifully written and the pictures are amazing. Jaden Hair is also very likeable and I love her blog as well!! However, the recipes were a bit disappointing. I tried 5 of her recipes, and all of them were either too salty, or bland and none of them I would make again. I'm not going to bother trying any of the other recipes. If possible, I always try to test out a cookbook by borrowing from the library before I purchase it, and thankfully this one was borrowed and I didn't wa The book itself is beautifully written and the pictures are amazing.

A beautiful book to browse through and look at the pictures, but the food is nothing special.

    I challenge you to find a chef out there that is more dynamic, more approachable, more down-to-earth, and more lovable than Jaden Hair. (Hint: You will fail.) This is another one of those TOP 5 cookbooks. Even if I don't follow the recipes straight out...I can utilize the sauces and marinades for a variety of other things and THEY ALL WORK! Super easy to follow and written like someone who loves food. I have had the immense pleasure of breaking bread with Jaden and she is good people.

It's in the book.)

    One of the best parts of this book is the descriptions of all the different ingredients that the author uses and the brands that she recommends. I like the recipes for the different sauces that you can make yourself and the fact that their are useful tips throughout the book. The writing style is very casual and seems kind of goofy at times but I've really enjoyed the recipes I've made so far.

    Beautiful cookbook full of yummy, easy to prepare Asian dishes, as well as lots of colorful photos and funny insights from the author. Everything is made from simple ingredients that can be found at your local market. Love the Thai Chicken in Sweet Chili Sauce and the Beef Satay with Cashew Dipping Sauce. The Garlic Butter Noodles are to die for. One of my favorite cookbooks ever. Also, try the Steamy Kitchen blog -- it's awesome.

    This is the cookbook that got me started on my obsession with Asian cooking. I have made a good number of the recipes in this book and my boyfriend (who is Chinese) and I both love them. I highly recommend this cookbook and her website too. Jaden's recipes are easy to follow and her book gives you all the info you need about techniques and unfamiliar ingredients.

    Pictures of Recipes? Yes - All of them. Commentary on Recipes? Yes, with lots of detailed instructions for more intricate tasks. Nutrition Facts? No Recipe Style? You will be required to find specialized ingredients in some cases, but overall, almost everything looks amazing. Any Keepers? Yes, several!

    This is an excellent cookbook for anyone wanting to foray into the world of Asian cuisine. Every recipe I tried in this book was delicious! I originally found this book at the library after following the author's blog for quite some time. I liked it so much that I asked for it for Christmas, and got it!

    My go to cookbook on Asian Cuisine. Love the intro on how and what to shop for at your Pacific/ Asian Market. 've enjoyed Jaden's sense of humor too! Easy to read recipes that are advanced, but don't require super unusual ingredients.

    Easy and inspiring dishes.. She has the complicated sauces that are typical in Asian foods made less complicated - so the recipes are easier for a weeknight...which is great (and they are still tasty.)

    I am excited with this cookbook, because it has a lot of recipes that appear to be easy to start trying Asian cooking. I also like all the explanations and options when the author describes ingredients. Overall, yum!

    My new favorite cookbook, filled with easy, tasty recipes. I really like this one because it reflects the foods we enjoy...Asian or Asian inspired that are quick and easy, and made with ingredients that are easy to find locally.

    Interesting concept in terms of making one recipe adaptable to several styles, but not for me. Still. For someone.
