Its nice that menus are put together for you based on the event i.e. romantic dinner, the morning after, picnics, etc.
I've made the lasagna, meatloaf, and pasta puttanesca and they were all delicious. My roommate has sampled them all and was equally impressed. You won't go wrong buying this book. If you are looking for another good cookbook for beginners, then check out Now Your Cooking by Elaine Corn. I've tried 90% of those recipes and they are both easy and tasty.
Sandra and Alexis - please write the next one soon!
The recipes are organized as breakfasts, lunches, beverages, and dinners, with chapters under these headings for specific things such as soups and dressings. Many of the recipes have variations, which multiplies what you get for your money.
One of the authors is vegetarian, and there are a lot of vegetarian recipes or variations. If eating pork is against your religion, it might interest you that there is only one pork entree - and that is a stir-fry with a vegetarian variation using something called seitan.
The recipes specify the time and equipment needed, and often have advice on how well things keep or freeze.
It's a little cutesy with the girls-on-the-go theme, but don't be put off by that. We all eat, don't we?
There are a lot of helpful hints besides.
In other words, this isn't just a thrown-together book; there was a lot of thought put in it, and it shows. I read a library copy, but I'm getting my own!
