"Easy," yes, but these recipes rely on so many canned and other packaged convenience foods that it's hard to know about the "good." Betty Crocker's New Cookbook (LJ 5/15/96) included lots of fresh ingredients and fresh recipes, so it's disappointing to see canned cream soups, bottled salad dressings, ready-made sauces, and other such items in so many dishes. And some of the "super-express" dishes seem more like ideas than actual recipes (Double Cheese Tortellini calls for three ingredients: canned tomato sauce, packaged tortellini, and Parmesan cheese). There are lots of charts, boxes, and lists, but some are more helpful than others (several, for example, suggest take-out food for dinner as "a recipe shortcut"). Buy for demand.

The Good and Easy cookbook is a keeper as there are many easy and useful recipes included. I've used this cookbook for many years and love it. The only reason why I gave this cook book a 4 star rating is the binding. The cook book reprint would have been so much better if it was published as a spiral bound book.
The layout of the print cookbook is beautiful, the recipes are enticing, and most of all they are quick to prepare.
Note: The book with the white cover and green band is the same book as the previous edition as best as I can tell. I've ended up with two copies of this book as I did not realize they were the same.
