Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
I've had a copy of this book for quite a few years. i bought this particular copy as a wedding present to a couple just starting out, with basic cooking experience. it's great for quick meals, it tells the shopping lists, everything you need. it's a great book for first time cookers as well as experienced, busy people. nice pix through out the book help in picking what you want to try first!
Good for weekday cooking
I'm surprised at the complaints about the recipes using pre-processed/packaged foods. That's what a 15 minute cookbook is about, and you can always substitute. I use this one quite a bit for cooking during the busy week. Weekends are for the more complicated recipes. Like any cookbook, this has some recipes more bland than I like, but overall I'm quite happy with it.
Great, quick, easy
This cookbook is great. I agree that these recipes probably aren't for the gourmet cook, but they are definitely for the busy person who wants to make and eat healthy at home. Some of our favorites are the athenian fish (we use frozen tilapia filets), sausage and black bean soup, and beef stroganoff.
