The recipes in the book are delicious, very simple to follow, and use ingredients that are easily found.
I have several cookbooks on my kitchen shelf that are collecting dust. Not this one! The pages are sticking together and the cover is falling off. I haven't failed with even 1 recipe yet, and I'm quite a novice.
My only quabble is that some of the terms used are British i.e., Castor Sugar is translated into Bakers Sugar. So, if you come across something that you've never heard of, you may have to do some research.

Must have this one! Feb. 6 2009
By Sue Downes - Published on Amazon.com
This is the cook book everyone should own! Every method of preparing and cooking is shown in pictorial detail and the recipes are do-able and interesting. After reading this book, trust me, there's nothing to stop you cooking wonderful and exciting food every day!

Not visually appealing Jan. 8 2006
By Jane - Published on Amazon.com
To be inspired to cook, I like to have a well presented cookbook with a photo of each dish. I didn't find this book very inspiring for two reasons. Firstly, although the cover photo is very appealing, the photos inside the book are fuzzy. It looks like they were taken using the kind of fuzzy photographic filter which was fashionable in the 90s. I find this style really irritating. Secondly, the print is very small, and uncomfortable to read. These factors may not bother some people, but for me they really spoilt the book. I gave this book 2 stars as the recipes seemed easy, and the basic explanations for cooking techniques are good.
