I snatched this cookbook off the $1 shelf at Half Price Books in Austin. Who can resist a dollar cookbook? I mean really…I certainly can’t. Plus…what busy gal can resist a book full of 30-minute dinners? Again…definitely not me!
Number of recipes: 270
A few recipes I want to make:Mexican couscous, Asian chicken noodle soup, chive sauce, up & down biscuits, pork diane, chickpea pita pockets, basil-mozzarella cheeseburgers, stir-fried chicken pizza, tortellini alfredo with roasted peppers.
What I love about this cookbook:Every recipe has a picture! Really. Every. Single. One. It’s amazing! The more I cook, the easier it becomes for me to envision the final outcome of a printed recipe. But let’s face it…a recipe always sounds better when it’s paired with a mouthwatering picture.
Almost every page has a helpful hint or tip. Whether it’s to aid in the preparation of dinner or inform you about an ingredient you’ve never used, these tips are great.
Every recipe has nutritional information. I’m not a calorie counter, but some people are and I imagine this would make their lives just a teensy bit better.
What I don’t like about this cookbook:I didn’t flag many recipes in this book that I wanted to make out of 270. I think I only want to make 30 or so. But…being that I’m so very picky that could just be a personal problem.
