This book, from the author of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, is a little like having some basic cooking classes with your grandma, or great-grandma (depending on your age). It hearkens back to a simpler time, and many of the recipes here would be suitable for beginner cooks.

I love Ms. Cunningham's philosophy of supper:

"I love supper... Sitting down to one dish, with bread, butter, and a desert, can put the world back into a pleasant perspective...

Supper is more a state of mind than a meal bound by

Some of the recipes lack common sense... Or cooking sense. For instance on page 31 there is a recipe for "Sharon's lentil salsa soup" and lists garlic, carrots and onions in that order to be sautéed. The garlic should go in last, not first unless you want to burn them!
Anyway, I've tried a few of the recipes and all have been pretty good but lacking some sense.

A philosophy of cooking that I liked. Not so keen on all her recipes, though...
