This is probably my favorite cookbook, and I have lots of them. Every recipe is really fast, easy and uses normal ingredients, so it's easy to try new and different things. Thusfar I've tried about 40-45 of the recipes, and there's been only one that we didn't love! I like this cookbook so much I bought two more- one each for my best friend and my mother-in-law. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes to cook!
I gave this book as a wedding gift after it was highly recommended to me by a friend. I think it is just what you need if you are just starting out cooking and want easy, delicious recipes. I haven't found a better one yet!
They should call this book 'The Southern Living Cookbook for Kids'. I am by no means a gourmet cook, but as someone who knows their way around the kitchen, I was suprised to go through this book and see just how juvenile some of the recipes were (examples: s'mores, milkshakes and a recipe called 'chocolate cookie pudding'. To make this recipe, you put instant chocolate pudding in the bottom of a bowl and then top it with whipped cream and crushed oreos). I found that few recipes that aren't for kids are so basic that you don't need to spend $30.00 to learn to make them (such as pasta salad, club sandwiches or a recipe which calls for chicken, lettuce and cheese served on pita bread). I should have expected such for a book titled 'quick and easy'. Save your money, I wish I would have.
I liked it, not too terrible, but if you really want to get some cooking done, you might want to try this Russian culture gem: Tastes and Tales from Russia.
