"Gone are the days when Daddy in the kitchen evoked a cutesy image of the inept American male . . . making a royal mess as he tried to boil water," insists Thorson. "My wife and I split up the work around the house some years back," and much of the cooking fell to him. Now a seasoned amateur, this University of Nebraska professor of gerontology, and wisecracking good old boy, has written not "your regular cookbook, where they assume you know how to separate egg yolks from the whites." Instead, "We'll focus on how to cook, and I'll throw in some tricks I've picked up over the years." Readers will not find myriad elegant recipes. The book is divided into five simple chapters: breakfast ("You already know how to make the toast," he quips); lunch; "little stuff" like deviled eggs; dinner (Rice-a-Roni and Minute Rice are championed); and dessert ("Remember Bisquick?"). A gung ho kitchen minimalist, at times clodhopping and more than a little gross ("all of the old ladies in our church kept a spare copy of funeral casserole in the freezer, ready to pounce if someone died"), Thorson makes primitive cookery sound like fun.

How Thorson helps the innocent and the incapable along to meisure out quantities, to understand the most basic kitchen-terms and to PREPARE many different recipes.... it's not only amazing, but oh, so hilarious !
I gave this book to an 88-old male friend, who recently became a widower and who had never in his life before even boiled water, and guess what ? Yes, he cooks his own meals now !
So, not only will you laugh till you cry, reading this book, but indeed you will also be able to prepare a lot of easy dishes for yourself and yes ! even for a whole bunch of friends, who will be so impressed with your cooking-skills, they won't be able to believe it !
