First, let me tell you what I liked. I loved the premise of the book and the author's perspective. I didn't need to read beyond her first couple sentences to know that I could relate to her. I, too, want to save money and time when I feed my family. I like the cover. It would definitely catch my attention at a bookstore.

Some of the recipes looked good, but others did not. They just didn't look like something my family would like. So, I tried a few recipes I thought my family would like, then tried a few that I knew I would have to serve with things they liked. A couple of the recipes worked for us, but a few were just a little odd for us.

We all LOVED the chili recipe. I had some leftover beef roast to add to a can of chili (how simple can you get!) Home run! I continue to use leftover beef roast in this manner.

Unfortunately, that was the only recipe I repeated. I also found the layout a little strange. I think it may be good for a new couple who hasn't cooked much before, but for me, it had unnecessary extra information. Some of the recipes were too simple, and I didn't find them to be overly frugal.
