To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book at a remaindered bookshop many years ago, then I gave it to a charity shop when I moved. I missed it though I had copied out the recipe for cockeyed cake which is so easy to make whenever I am expecting visitors and it is worth buying it just for that. It is a vegan recipe too and so many of us have vegan friends these days!
This book was a god-send to me when I was working as a housekeeper for a family in Canada. Peg Bracken came to my rescue with recipes such as "Stayabed Stew" and "Swiss Loaf". The family loved the outcome and so did I. However, not even Peg Bracken could endear me to cooking - but this book is at least practical and "doable", and what is more, it doesn't break the bank!
When I left home, Mom gave me a copy of Peg Bracken's original book, which was well used and loved. It got lost in a move recently thus I was so happy to be able to order a new copy. Glad this book is still around.
Would you rather put a campfire out with your face than cook dinner, but don’t want anyone to know? This book tells you how to fake it. Worth reading just for how funny she is. Now I want to read her other books.
I owned a copy of I Hate to Cook Book many years ago but recently was unable to locate it in my large collection of books. There was a particular dish that I wanted to make and when I checked Amazon, I saw that the 50th anniversary book was available in Kindle. I was delighted. Just reading some of the recipes again brought a smile to my face. Wonderful book.
