NOT EXACTLY A COOKBOOK
on 8 April 2011
I love to cook and I always try new recipes, so I thought that this free cookbook would give me some interesting ideas. However, I was very disappointed and I intend to delete it as soon as possible.
The book is supposed to be a cookbook, but sadly all it really does is to combine various ready-made mixes. Let me give you an example; the ingredients for "Savory Pot Roast" are beef chuck roast, ranch salad dressing mix, onion soup mix, brown gravy mix and water, nothing more, nothing less. Unfortunately most of the recipes are like this, with almost no fresh ingredients at all.
I like using fresh, usually organic, ingredients but I am not a fresh food fanatic and I enjoy the occasional ready-made supermarket meals, but I don't pretend that opening a can of soup is cooking. I know that most of us have very little time to cook, but this 'cookbook' is not the solution; there are great cookbooks out there with easy and fast recipes for even the most inexperienced cooks.
A note on the Kindle edition: luckily I found no errors, but some sentences were underlined for some reason and it has no pictures. Other than that, it was extremely easy to download, and will hopefully be easy to delete.
