The thing I like so much about this book is that most recipes have 4-8 ingredients and very very few steps. It's real home cooking.
It's their Joy of Cooking. It is amazing how simple the recipes look, isn't it?
We bought it last year, and I hate to say this, but we've overlooked it: I think we made maybe only one or two recipes. We collect cookbooks (mostly older ones) with a passion -- okay, obsession, and unfortunately, a downside to such acquisition mania is that we tend to forget about them once they're on the shelf.
So thanks for the reminder.
