My Opinion - I've Seen Better

by RAYT on Nov 13, 2011

After my divorce in the early 90s I realized that I could only tolerate so many cans of ravioli and so many packages of ramen noodles. I could not afford financially or health-wise of going out to eat 3x or more per day. I knew that it was best to learn to cook and eat well so I began to buy and collect cookbooks.Then one day while going through my collection, I found that it was a great cookbook if I found 5-6 recipes in a book that I would actually make so I started to sell off the collection, keeping only those with recipes that meet my standards. Now days, I will pre-screen cookbooks by checking out the library and deciding from there if the book is worth the $1, $5 or $20 price tags. This is NOT one of those books, in my opinion. I like Anne Burrell as a tv host/cook but this cookbook is not on my list of purchases. I don't think that I found more than two recipes that I would even consider making. Now, it's worth saying that I am not a gourmet cook so others may think this book is awesome and worth the money. We're all different in that regard. I am not one to get turned on with Stir Fried Marinated Olives, Spiced Chickpea Soup, Spaghetti with Tuna, or Stewed Zucchini with Tomatoes, Oregano & Pine Nuts or any of the recipes in between those pages. I would think I am more "into" frugal and easy comfort foods. We all have our own tastes in food and books. My opinion is to check this one out at the library (pardon the library humor) and decide if its worth parting with money from your budget. If you feel this has several recipes for your lifestyle, grab it. I won't be fighting you for it.
