5.0 out of 5 stars Enduring wisdom and recipes, August 29, 2003
This review is from: More-With-Less Cookbook (World Community Cookbook) (Spiral-bound)
I plan to buy a second copy of this cookbook because my copy of the original edition is stained with 24 years of use. This is where I go for ideas when I have to fix a meal and don't have anything special around to use. This food isn't gourmet, but there are plenty of plain, good recipes. This book has my favorite recipes for cornbread and tortillas, and many, many main dish recipes for basic home cooking.
The spiral binding is a big plus, allowing the book to be laid open flat while I cook. More cookbooks should be bound this way!

Of course the greatest treasure of this book is the wisdom and insight of Doris Longacre, the late author. For the reader who never plans to cook a thing, the insights she shares about life, hospitality, the world's resources and respect for other cultures all make the More-With-Less Cookbook worth buying and reading multiple times.

I was disappointed that the new copy from Amazon was not spiral bound, especially seeing so many reviews mentioning it.

I guess I don't really like spiral cookbooks. They're always unloosing from the spiral holes, getting stuck on other books on the shelf, and I like to be able to read a title on the spine and spirals don't usually have the title printed on them. Of course, I have so many books that this is important, but maybe not for others.

Spirals do lay nice and flat though. I just wish this weren't a paperback cookbook. Paperbacks don't hold up compared to hardcovers.
