If you think eating well means eating out, you're probably feeling the effects of restaurant dining-- in your pocketbook. Now you can go from being a diner in debt to making irresistible meals at home-- at a fraction of the cost.

With the down-to-earth wisdom that has made The Cheapskate Monthly newsletter a household name, Mary Hunt guides even the most inexperienced cook through the basics of gourmet cooking, and reveals tricks that turn the everyday chicken into a masterpiece, the basic salad into a memorable melange of flavors and textures, and mealtime into a special occasion.

Here is everything you need to know about:

$ Kitchen Equipment-- What you need, what you don't, and how to use it

$ Recipes-- From soups to desserts, simple meals to special feasts, and fabulous can-do recipes from top restaurants' most popular menu items

$ Cheapstitutes-- Take a bite out of your grocery bill with do-it-yourself dressings, muffin mixes, extracts and more

$ Resources-- Save even more with mail-order supplies and bulk items

$ Motivation-- There's plenty to go around, compliments of America's #1 penny-pincher, Mary Hunt
