This humorous book has been a survival tool for me in the kitchen for 15 years. When I'm really desperate, it never fails. It's a fun read, saves time and anxiety and makes me laugh when the last thing I want to do is cook. The recipes are palatable and family friendly; the ingredient lists are short with simple instructions. It was written before low fat, whole grains and low salt became trendy, but simple substitutes and halving the salt works. It has some great old standby recipes worth coming back to.
