    I was surprised that this cookbook had many dishes I wanted to try out. I'm not one for recipes that have fancy ingredients and time consuming directions so when I was going through the book and found many "Hey-I-can-do-this!" dishes, I was thrilled! Most of the recipes were simple, easy, and quick.

    Although this cookbook did not have images of the final creations, I still found the book very attractive and user friendly. The recipes really did speak for themselves.
