I borrowed this book from the library, and liked many of the recipes, so I decided to buy the book. Most of the recipes are simple to make and the ones I've used have tasted good. Plus the recipes seem to use just a few ingredients, as well. For a small recipe book, I find myself using quite a few of the recipes, probably more than from some of my larger cookbooks.
The recipes look good and not too complicated, the asides are interesting. I look forward to trying my hand at a Dark & Stormy, I'll tell you what!
A favorite cookbook when you just want to sit and ponder what it would be like to live on an island and cook like Ms. Greenlaw and her mother.
This is my favorite kind of cookbook: lots of beautiful pictures a stories about the authors' lives interwoven throughout. A nice book.
