The first time I saw this cookbook was at a friend's house. He made a recipe in the book that was extremely tastey. I thought he used a gourmet cookbook and when he told me he used "Dad's Own Cook Book" I was shocked. I immediately ordered the cookbook and now it has become my #1 manual for cooking! I'm not the best cook in the world, but this book makes me look I'm "seasoned". Not only does it give you the recipe, but it also explains techniques for the cooking process, gives time-saving tips, and even storage tips. Bob Sloan takes the guess work out of cooking and makes it an extraordinary, easy experience that even a novice like me can understand. Bon'Appetit!
