“How to Make Good Food with What’s on Hand. (No Fancy Skills, Fancy Equipment, or Fancy Budget Required” reads the cover of this cookbook. And it’s true. It’s also has exactly what I like in a cookbook; lots of white space on the page for easy reading, appetizing color pictures, ingredients I’m likely to have in my cupboard, and absolutely no calorie information.
(Cocktail recipes would be a welcome addition to this book but then I can usually figure that one out on my own.)
I read lots of cookbooks and don’t actually try the recipes very often. I guess they are more for inspiration. Not the case with this one.
At the risk of getting in Kelli’s lane, I will recommend the Old-Fashioned Coffee Cake (page 141) and the Oven-Baked Meatballs (page 96). Both delicious and I’ve made them multiple times. This one’s a winner.
