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.

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.
