Well, now I know why I was #300+ on the WL for so long!!! Once you go out and get this book.....you don't want to give it up! Got for Christmas and hubby and I already have a list of dinners we want! What a wonderful selection of meals. Plus there are little "hints" all throughout!
I say, use your Borders coupon and go buy it!
this has quickly become my favorite basic cookbook. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. the tips are new, fresh, helpful. almost everything I cook out of this book is delicious and fun to make.
