Dad's Own Cookbook: Everything Your Mother Never Taught You by Bob Sloan
It's time to become the new hero of the kitchen. Or at least put aside your fear of frying (not to mention sautéing, roasting, or tossing a salad). Dad's Own Cookbook shows how to do everything from handling a knife properly to juggling three dishes so that dinner comes together on schedule. Its lively charts, tips, and directions replace intimidation with pleasure and camaraderie, and its 150 great recipes will turn the most culinarily challenged dad into the family chef.
Bob Sloan is a professional chef, teacher, and author who runs his own catering business. He lives in New York City with his wife and two sons, both of whom love to cook.

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
