it was amazing

One of the three cookbooks everyone should own (the others are The Joy of Cooking and Fannie Farmer). I almost always use this cookbook to plan my weekly grocery list. The beans and pasta sections have helped me survive the past few years on a grad student budget while still eating well. His suggestions for modifying recipes are a plus for budget cooks, since he almost always suggests a relatively cheap ingredient or two (can't afford to make penne with tomato-shrimp sauce this week? maybe penne with tomato-tuna sauce would be almost as good). He also has a lot of recipes for typical garden/farmer's market/CSA produce.
