|Definitely putting some of these recipes on my menu!|
At first glance, I didn't think I was going to like this cookbook... It is fairly small (37 recipes in all), and many of the recipes use a lot of "cream of X" soups and other canned/processed foods. However, there are also several recipes that don't include so many processed foods, and look/sound wonderful! (I also realize that utilizing those canned items is what helps make the recipes quick-and-easy to make, which is what many people need.)
If you open the book at the beginning and start paging through, you won't find the table of contents, because it has been placed at the END of the book (I found this odd). So if you're anything like me, and like to look through the TOC first, you'll need to use the Kindle menu to navigate to the TOC. Not a big problem, just different.
There is a wide variety of recipes, given the smallish size, including a breakfast oatmeal recipe, a couple of beverages, 3 or 4 dips/appetizers, many soups-and-stews, some main dishes, meat sandwich fillings, and a couple of desserts. The recipe for stroganoff sounds great and will probably be the first one I make. I was also happy to see a recipe for Cabbage-Rolls, which is also going on my menu in the near future.
All recipes include good, clear instructions and complete ingredient lists. All recipes look very easy to make, and most don't use any hard-to-find ingredients.
