I just picked up this cookbook recently. I must say that I am suprised how good it is. The only negative for me is no pictures. I always like to see what the dish should look like. Even though there are no pictures this book is great. I am going to list come of the dishes in the book. This will give everyone an idea of how the book is set up. I find that this is helpful for me.

Introduction

The Engagment Chicken Hall of Fame (So Far)

Plus: Just How Easy is Each Recipe: This is just a one page guide showing you how easy each recipe is using stiletto icon. Its kind of cute if you ask me.

Engagment Chicken, The recipe that started. This is the first recipe in the book. I am going to try this one soon. I will edit my review.

I really enjoyed the engagement chicken recipe, but the amount of prep work was exhausting. You need to start several months in advance, initially leaving random copies of the recipe around the boyfriend's apartment. Then you need to bring up the recipe whenever possible, like crying when your friends eat engagement chicken, wondering aloud if you're getting too old to eat engagement chicken, and mentioning how happy your mother would be if you finally made engagement chicken. It turned out well (a little lemony), but there were definitely times where I wanted to give up and go to McDonalds for a "I'm going to die alone and the cats will eat my face" chicken sandwich instead.

Otherwise, this is a decent basic starter cookbook, but it is neither very exciting for advanced cooks or very informative for beginner cooks. It seems to be aimed at the latter but does not have pictures or many tips for new cooks.

Format: Hardcover
100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Fabulous Dishes to Get You Everything You Want in Life is filled with delicious sounding recipes...and, it's fun to read!

I have actually made the roast chicken recipe and it is very good. (Already married when I made it...)Roast chicken is a comfort food and it looks like a big deal to make--although it is actually very easy. When a woman (or man for that matter) cooks for her boyfriend--especially when it's a comfort food--it says I love you and I'll take care of you. This is even more significant if the boyfriend (or girlfriend) doesn't really cook themselves. It really IS a big deal to have someone cook for you.

Cooking really CAN get you what you want! (Within reason, of course...) Cooking for a loved one makes them feel good and special...make their favorite dish and the world is your oyster!

If you are looking for more "love potions", make sure your home is conducive for love. Try a little Feng Shui in the love corner! My favorite book for that (includes some good recipes, too) is HARMONIOUS ENVIRONMENT.

Like I said, many of the titles to these recipes will just make you smile...silly stuff. But the reality is, buy this book if you don't know how to cook--or even if you do, as it has lots of nice recipes. Why? As sexist as it sounds, women should know how to cook for their man! (Or, if the guy likes to cook, fine! Gay couples, you know what I mean...)There is NOTHING like a home cooked meal to show you love someone. In addition, when you cook, you put your energy into the dish...it just tastes better than store bought!

Highly recommend!

I love to cook, and I collect cookbooks. I read the reviews and thought there would be some basic and simple standards in the book. Well, i can not find one recipe that sparks my interest in this book. Pick it up in the library before you buy this one. Not much included to be sitting on my shelf.

This cookbook is AWESOME! The recipes are so easy. I wish there were pictures as I like to see what the finished product should look like but... the recipes are simple enough. Most of the recipes don't call for ingredients that aren't usually in your spice rack or that you have on-hand.

This cookbook would be a great gift for a bride to be. It has quite a few simple but yummy recipes. I have hundreds of cookbooks and I have not bought a new one in a while but I was sucked in by the stories and idea behind this cookbook. I have made about 5 recipes from the book now and they are all family favorites. My favorite so far is the "Love You Pancakes" , They are a bit different than normal pancakes, almost crepe like. I also LOVE the new cooking technique for bacon. This cookbook will get tons of use. I did make the engagement chicken too and although I don't need a ring I had a good laugh at how much my 9 year old son loved the chicken. If a girl makes it for him someday he probably will propose! The only thing I don't like is that there are no pictures, but then again that adds to the simplicity of the cookbook.
