5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition
This is a superb addition to anyone's culinary library - clearly not every recipe will suit every person but for the price it is well worth it.

Considering the price, it is an absolute bargain.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice style but confusingly american
This book is witty and seems to understand that people who can't cook can't cook. step by step simple stuff. unfortunately it is geared towards american cooks and shoppers and so the terms used, the measurements and the brands recommended are not relevant to the UK cook.

For example all the measurements are in 'cups' so i have had to invest in a set of...

This book is witty and seems to understand that people who can't cook can't cook. step by step simple stuff. unfortunately it is geared towards american cooks and shoppers and so the terms used, the measurements and the brands recommended are not relevant to the UK cook.

For example all the measurements are in 'cups' so i have had to invest in a set of measuring cups rather than being able to use my trusty set of scales. And Zucchini are listed instead of courgettes. For me this is ok, but for my struggling other half using these unfamilar terms is rather confusing and just adds to his anxiety about cooking.

Lastly there is an ingredient listed for a 'magic quiche' called 'bisquick'. what on earth is this??

5.0 out of 5 stars No-fail recipes for everday meals, 6 Sep 1999
By A Customer
The book teaches you everything you need to know from how to hard-boil an egg to stir frying broccoli. It makes are great gift of any beginning cook.
Recipes include breakfast foods, eggs, breads, soups, sandwiches, salads, main dishes, vegetables, desserts, & appetizers. There is no gourmet fare here, just the delicious uncomplicated meals for everyday people.
Some of my favorite desserts are the apple dumplings & easy lemon chiffon pie. I enjoyed the oven pot-roast, meatballs, chili, & pork chops as well. I know I will never get bored with 8 different potato recipes.
I also loved the one-step lasagna. It's great because you don't have to cook the noodles before baking, making it quick & easy to make. The never-fail cheese soufflé & salmon pate will impress dinner guests without hours of frustration.
