Bought this book a while back love it..alot of pictures
I recently came to the conclusion that I wanted to start cooking more and eating healthy. Therefore, I went to the bookstore and searched through countless numbers of cookbooks and came across this one. I absoultely love, love, love this book. It's a must have for beginning cooks. It includes step by step illustrations with get this pictures. Woohoo!!!!! Enough said. It shows you how to cook almost everything from scratch, meat sauce, cream sauce, cornbread and countless other things. Everything that I have cooked out of this cookbook has become favorites for me. I recently stopped eating meat and poultry and now only eat fish and wish that it had more fish and/or seafood recipes but it doesn't but that's ok. I'm currently looking for seafood and vegetarian cookbooks now. But overall, great cookbook. I highly recommend it.
I luv u to bye
Ok love you bia
