From the Inside Flap

I'm not in the habit of writing companies to say "thank you," but I'm making an exception this time. I'm speechless for once! We ordered 36 cookbooks between friends and, of course, now our friends' friends are wishing they would have ordered too. Without your special kindness of offering the discount, none of it would have been possible. Your service was quick and efficient and your personal shoppers were very courteous. Thanks again!

I have made four recipes from this book since purchasing it with a Christmas gift card. All four have gotten a request to "make this again" from my husband, which is very unusual...although, I'll admit, I'm no gourmet. This is Down-Home-Style food, and although many of the recipes call for convenience items (canned chicken, for example) I'm sure they can be modified when time permits.

I'm dying to try several more in this book...they all sound so yummy! I can tell this book won't gather dust on my cookbook shelf. Other tips throughout the book on how to make plain staple foods more delectable.

Very easy to follow, even for a kitchen beginner. The book also gives a "Perfectly Prepared Pantry" list to ease shopping, and a kitchen math list, which tells you how much raw product you need in order to end with a specific prepared amount.

Definitely a winner!

I love this book. I purchased it about 6 years ago and have made almost every recipe within it's cover. The meals are quick, tasty, and I find I still have time for my family after dinner is served and the kitchen cleaned.
This book is divided into the following sections: Market Fresh and Fast, Oodles of Noodles, Hearty in a Hurry, Quick as a Wink, Treats in a Twinkle, Perfectly Prepared Pantry.
The Market Fresh and Fast section is a section built around recipes quick recipes such as Almost Instant Pierogies, Cheesy Spinach Pie, Turkey Bow-Tie Salad, Old Fashioned Vegetable Soup, Easy Hash Brown Potato Casserole, Amish Skillet (which my family loves).
The Oodles of Noodles is my favorite section for the casserole type dishes it contains. Turkey Tetrazzini, Chicken n Bowties, Creamy Chicken Spaghetti, Zesty Primavera Pasta, Easy Cheesy Manicotti, Cajun Chicken Pasta, Mac and Cheese Dinner, Lip Smackin Stuffed Shells, (I LOVE..) BLT Pasta Salad, Crab Fettuccini, Ham and Noodle skillet, Ravioli Casserole, Home style Mac n Cheese, Turkey Stroganoff, Lazy Lasagna, Pizza Pasta Salad, Thai Peanut Noodles, Cincinnati Skillet, only to mention a few.
The Hearty in a Hurry contains recipes for nights you are looking for something a little rib sticking but yet still quick.

I'm a young mother of three busy little boys. I received this book as wedding present 8 years ago and value it as one of my most treasured books. The meals are hearty, flavor-full and so fast to make. My kids have no complaints. The one thing I like most about it is the timing. I have a busy life and there's not always enough time to make a quick dinner that's not already frozen or out of a carry out bag.

Some of my families favorites: "Jay's Favorite Chicken," "Easy Stromboli," "Bacon Wrapped Chicken," and "Beef Stroganoff."

At the moment I'm looking up the book to order it for all of my sister-in-laws as Christmas Presents.
