I love cookbooks and am always looking at something new. Problem is, I never have time to try the recipes. Well, this book proved different. The recipes are so simple and quick, I tried it out the very first night. I couldn't believe my kids actually ate something that looked so exotic (& easy at the same time). Usually I'm lucky if I can get them to eat mashed potatoes. The recipes vary from simple meals like salads and sandwiches, too more complicated (at least that is the impression I want my husband to have) meals that you could serve to guests (they would never guess it only took you 20 minutes). They even have a prepare ahead section, for those days when you know you will barely have time to breath, let alone cook! I would recommend this cookbook to anyone, especially those Moms, like me, who are busy with soccer pratice, PTA, and other kid related projects. ( )

Nothing particularly special or interesting in the recipes. Anything slightly complicated (beyond what you don't really need a recipe for) can be found on other cookbooks on my shelf. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0028612566, Hardcover)

The brand name Betty Crocker conjures images of straightforward, time-tested recipes that even novices can follow. Betty Crocker's Good and Easy Cookbook keeps to this tradition, offering uncomplicated recipes with clear instructions and color photos. The sheer simplicity of the recipes--350 of them with prep times between 2 and 20 minutes--makes the book a busy cook's dream. Even experienced cooks looking for new ideas for interesting meals to whip up will find plenty to keep them happy--and well fed--here. Traditional favorites like Tuna-Macaroni Casserole and Honey Mustard Ham mingle with such exotic dishes as Sichuan Cashew Chicken, Easy Picadillo, and Wild Rice and Broccoli Timbales. The book abounds in tips on substitutions, cooking times, and recipe shortcuts. Special bonuses include such numerous special features as a "Do-Ahead" section, which features meals that can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer to be popped into the oven anytime, and a chapter called "Super Express Cooking," in which most recipes have prep times of five minutes or less. No matter how busy you are, or what your experience level in the kitchen, Betty Crocker's Good and Easy Cookbook will have you cooking delicious meals in no time. --Robin Donovan
