Great cookbook for everyone
This book is great for anyone learning how to cook or even people who have been cooking for a while. Its very neat and the pictures are great. All the recipes include pictures from the start of the meal to the end. Ms. Hornby also took the time to show all the ingredients and what it would look like for the homecook. Most of the ingredients can be found in the supermarket or farmer's market. The recipes are economical and thats great in a cookbook. Here is a list of how the book is set up

Smoothies, cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, muffins, pancakes and corncakes.

Also Ms. Hornby includes tips on planning a menu and basic preparations like cutting garlic, onions and herbs.
I did my best to list most of the dishes. I did not list them all. I just wanted to give everyone an idea of whats in the book. This book is great for family and friends. This cookbook is great for any level of the homecook. I am glad I have this book and I will continue to make more of the dishes. Last night I made the spicy vegetable soup. Tonight I made for dessert the key lime pie. I cant wait until its ready.

Great cookbook for beginners!
Bought this cookbook for my 18 year old daughter. She loves the extra pictures showing the layout of ingredients per recipe. The recipes are also very good. This is her favorite cookbook now and she owns over 20.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
