This book got my attention with the title. My sister and I share a house, and we have to save money where we can. So, finding ways to cook good meals at a great price is a must for us. GOOD CHEAP EATS opens with a seven page introduction from author, Jessica Fisher. She starts with the words, “I love food.” She then shares some information on ingredients, and tools of the trade (cookware – what you need and don’t) and other helpful hints. Eight chapters include . . . Going Meatless, Stretching It, Something Meatier, Grilling and Eating Outdoors, Company Dinners, Make-Ahead Meals, Breakfast for Supper (I love breaky for din), and Meals on the run. My pet peeve in cookbooks it a lack of photos. While there are beautiful color photos in GOOD CHEAP EATS, some even full page, there isn’t a photo for every recipe. No doubt it costs a lot to do a photo for every dish, so I get that would raise the price of the book. But I’d be happy to see smaller photos of more recipes, and less huge photos of a select few. Food wise, there’s something for everyone’s tastes in this cookbook. I found many wonderful recipes that I am for sure going to try out. I’m a pretty plain eater. Picky as well. So, finding as many recipes as I did makes this book great asset to me. Recipes you will find are . . .Fire-Roasted Mushroom Marinara, Simplest Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup, Hot Cheese Dip with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Peanut Butter Chicken and Pasta, Lemon-Blueberry Crumble, Cheesy Beefy Chili Bake, Cajun Turkey Meatloaf, Ale-Braised Pork Roast, Honey-Mustard Baked Ham, Beef Potpie with Flaky Cheddar Crust, Mexican Oven Omelet, Almond French Toast, Orange-Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownie Cheesecake Bars, and many, many more. 200 in all! GOOD CHEAP EATS, I feel, fulfills its title.
