WOW!! What a fantastic and big cookbook. In my opinion this is the only cookbook you need .
Because I am often eating alone these days when my husband is away for work I am very impressed with the Cooking for One or Two chapter.I was able to try some of the recipes and the ones I have tried have been delicious. The only thing I do not like is that it doesn't have photos like the magazine has.
I give this 4 out of 5
*I have received a free copy of this book for my honest review*
