Excellent book! I loved the fact it's the "Favorite of Home Economics teachers" and it was easy to see why! There's a large craft section filled with yarn, fabric, wood, paper, plastic and potpourri that is extensive. Then the recipe section complete with quick and easy, microwave, soups, all purpose recipes. It is a spiral bound book and yet older, yet it is a wealth of information and one I got my daughter when she started out.
