There is nothing worse for a book containing recipes than for those recipes to have incorrect ingredient lists, wrong measurement amounts, or missing steps.
Congrats, ladies! You've managed to have all three. The book has been returned. There's too many options out there to waste time with shoddy books/sites or those who put the shoddy material out.
A close second? Inability to find recipes. Recipes are not included in the general index because there is a recipe index. The recipe index, however, is by searchable only by the meal category they put the food in, and then by cutesy title (Hole-in-One; Veggie Yard Dash) but not by ingredient. (Their categories: Appetizers & Snacks; Breakfasts and Smoothies; Main Dishes; Side Dishes; Soups and Salads). You cannot look up 'zucchini' and find all the zucchini recipes. You might consider something a side or a main or a breakfast item, but they may not. Cookbooks that don't allow for finding recipes by the ingredient are not particularly useful to me.
For those who are interested in accurate recipes, I've had good luck with the Veggie Venture website.
