I love to cook and own a rather large shelf full of cookbooks, but this one will always be my favorite, the recipes are delicious, the food looks great but best of all they are mostly quick and easy to make. Good food - little fuss. I would recommend this book to anybody interested in cooking from novice to expert - there is something in there for everyone.
