Great food - great gift - no chef required

by Just2centsworth on Nov 30, 2009

I received this book as a gift. My family knows I love to cook and love cookbooks, but a one pot recipe book wasn't appealing. What the heck, I'll give it a look see. The photography quickly pulled me in and the recipe results finished the job. This is now one of my favorite cookbooks. The best comfort food ever. Cold rainy day, this is the book I reach for. Recipes are written clearly, no strange ingredients, nothing bland and absolutely no 2 hours of preparation required. Come to think of it, this is a great wedding present for a young couple on a budget and learning. Simple prep techniques, healthy ingredients, no expensive equipment needed, basic ingredients. Give them a good quality dutch oven and this book. They'll love you for it!
