Dinner done. Out of all my 8 cookbooks, this is the only one that doesn’t collect dust.

Assuming tou are a typical mother trying to make practical but yummy dinners with regular ingredients that are time intensive : dinner done

If you are more of a foodie who likes to experiment with new ingredients and try new food and make fancier interesting meals, the other two are better. I never looked through marble spoon so not sure which of the two is better

I like dinner done but it’s not for foodies, PLC is.

Dinner done hands down.
PLC is beautiful to look at, not actually cook from.

I have dinner done and the marble spoon.
Dinner done has very easy recipes. The ones that don't involve sugar or soy sauce are very good- I.e. Baked chicken poppers, Herb grilled chicken, chicken with roasted peppers or tomatoes. They also have easy baked good recipes.
I found a lot of recipes included jarred sauces which my family doesn't enjoy but there's enough in it for me that is to our liking.

Marble spoon is wholesome, hearty recipes. Most of them are easy and not patchke at all; she does include a few fancier and harder recipes but most are very doable.
Some of them have a Sephardic flavor (author is from Panama I believe). Some don't. They are mostly wholesome recipes using common. I really enjoy it.
If super duper 123 easy is what you're looking for I would say dinner done.
If you're looking for recipes for shabbos, yt, every day that are wholesome and hearty, I'd say marble soon.

I agree with the above ^

Personally I use the Marblespoon a whole lot more than dinner done. I find dinner done to be very messy layout and very hard to “see” the actual recipe.
Marblespoon is simple clear and delicious easy but different recipes.

I don't have Marblespoon.
PLC and Dinner Done are very different styles. PLC has some easy recipes but most of them are very involved, lots of steps, lots of pots, "do it right" kind of cooking.
Dinner Done has a lot of hacks and super easy, throw some things in a pan type of recipes. Much more my personal cooking style (although there is a lot of fried chicken/shnitzel which I don't really do).

I have PLC, and I love it 🥰 got it from my birthday last week! It’s that I don’t live in a Jewish area that I don’t can easily buy kosher food (like kosher teriyaki sauce) same with cookbooks. I’m a foodie and I love cooking and I think maybe PLC is for foodies? If someone had w copy of dinner done I will be glady to buy it over hahah
