I do not know how Cooking Penguin is tricking Amazon into taking down my 1-star review all the time, but the other bad reviews on this page also support my view that this is not a cookbook anyone will find of use. Repetitive recipes, barely any dinner suggestions, recipes poorly written with the instructions in the wrong order, you get the idea. All the fake favorable views on this page can't disguise how bad this book is if you just click on the cover to look inside.
Money and time are short for most people and the last thing they want is to try to cook something for their family and have it turn out wrong. Or worse-set fire to your kitchen because they tell you in the Stir-fry recipe to heat the oil and then do other things for about 30 minutes, by which time, of course, your pan and stove would most likely be on fire. They might have corrected this mistake from the first edition, but there are so many things wrong with the recipes from an ordinary cook and mom's point of view, incorrect proportions, instructions missing or in the wrong order, and little to do with best results for freezing, for instance, that if I had to list them all, the list would be longer than the book itself.
