    A "Must" for Every Kitchen

    Whether you are the working mother, the 20 hour a day professional, or just the casual cook, I highly recommend this cookbook. The reputation of the main ingredient Bisquick supercedes itself. Add other ingredients and the result is an easy dinner with a toss salad added or a delightful appetizer for that special social affair. As the title says each recipe is "impossibly easy".
