I got this book right out of college (about 20 years ago). I don't cook. Never have. However, this book did help me figure out how to boil eggs!

A gift from my mother, ironically, this book is the practical foundation of my efforts to learn to cook, starting about two years ago. The recipes are all quite attainable, and form a nice alternative to braving the culinary wild west of the Internet looking for recipes. I've cooked at least 8 dishes from the book, from French Toast to a Moroccan meat panopoly, with consistently tasty results.

Definitely worth picking up a used copy if you are starting from square one.

Useful and delicious recipes. The No-Boil lasagna always works out perfectly and the quick Mac & Cheese is a immediate comfort food.

A must have for high school graduates.
