    Do NOT check out this book

    This book was a dreadful let down. Not only are the recipes just completely unappetizing but unless you live in a large metropolitan area like New York City, you will have a really hard time finding many of the ingredients that the recipes call for. The only "dummies" in the book are the ones who wrote it.
