My Thoughts: I have a Ninja Foodi Toaster Oven and I love it! I am often times thinking and saying to my husband that we are under utilizing it. After all, it can toast, broil, bake, bagel, air fry, and air roast. So when I saw this cookbook on Netgalley, I had to have it.

I haven't tried any of the recipes yet but there are several that I plan on trying in the near future. I'm a little picky with my recipes because my son has a severe peanut allergy, so I have to be mindful of ingredients. Plus I have only recently been eating meat at home, he eats meat at daycare but not at home. Lol not too sure why.

I'm a huge fan of cookbooks with colored pictures. I actually prefer a cookbook that has a photo for every recipe because I like to see what the recipe looks like before I decide to make it. I did get a pre-released copy of the book for my kindle and my pictures were all in black and white. I'm guessing that is not the case for the actual published copy. Not all recipes have pictures, only some do.

The recipes tell you how many servings but it does not tell you about the nutrition. I really prefer a cookbook that gives you nutritional information so that it is not a guessing game. I actually haven't seen a cookbook that didn't include that information until. now.

The first several pages are all informational and if you are not used to a toaster oven then I recommend that you read it first. It breaks down the different settings for each one and what their functions are.

Rating: 3 out of 5 because there are not a ton of photos, a little too much information at the beginning for me, and no nutritional information.
