I love this cookbook. I borrowed it from my local library and am now on a mission to purchase it for myself. I know that this is the last cookbook I'll ever need!
This is by far the best cookbook I have ever purchased. There are pages and pages of practical meals to prepare with everyday foods and spices.
As a beginning cook I was looking for something that would offer me a quick way to fix healthy, low fat meals. This is THE book. I love it. Not only are the meals exactly what I needed, it also gives me handy tips when cooking and preparing meals. There is also a lot of variety of foods in this book. It is a must have.
