I loved this book. It arrived in great condition, and has lots of good recipes. The great combination of Larry Bly (who is my cousin) and Laban Johnson was unbeatable. The program is missed, but the book helps keep the memories fresh. I highly recommend it!

I watched the guys from the early days. Great humor and the food was not too bad either. Larry and Laban were nuts and Doris showed up from time to time with something tasty...great show. This book has a nice variety of simple home cooking ideas. I tried many of the dishes and was only disappointed on the rare occasion. I would love to have all of the old shows on DVD; now that would be great...

Just received this cookbook in the mail today. I also, as another reviewer stated, ordered this book more for the sentimental reasons than anything, as I myself am an actual chef (now retired), not really in much need of help making recipes, BUT, it's interesting to look "back in time" a bit and see what people thought of as a "good" idea, or better yet, "healthy", lol, as in the case with these lovable guys and their insistence on the use of mar-jar-reen (margarine) in practically every recipe. What always made it funnier is when they said "we are doing this because 'ol Laban here is trying to watch what he's eatin' now, since that heart thing happened", or something to that effect. Yeah, I so loved this show when I was growing up. When I got home from school, I'd always turn on the old TV and see which cooking show was being shown, and usually I'd be lucky enough to catch an episode of Cookin' Cheap. Otherwise, my favorite shows (besides Transformers, of course), were Martin Yan's cooking show, and Justin Wilson, which I believe they were already into syndication on at the time. Sometimes the 2 Fat Ladies would also be on the TV...that show I saw sometimes, just because it was a bit odd, and I was waiting for one of them to actually conk off during the taping, because they REALLY used the butter ^^ Anyway, the book is nice...I wish it had some more pictures besides just the front cover, but that's the only photo of the guys in or on it. I was really hoping for a big section of more photos like in the center, the way a lot of books do to remember the history of a show or the people in it. Sadly, that's not the case here, BUT, there are quite a lot of recipes to go around, broken down by type, so that's good.Read more ›

I bought this for sentimental reasons. I wouldn't take the recipes too seriously.
