More than 180 Quick and Easy Recipes
By Peg Bracken

Harcourt, Brace and World, New York. Copyright 1960, twentyfifth printing. Hard Cover with blue cloth binding with 176 pages. Measures 8 1/4 in. x 5 3/4 in. Drawings by Hillary Knight.

To come right to the point if you have a kitchen (pullman or otherwise) in your home and are expected to cook in it, but HATE to cook this book is for you. It is such a clever book that no one need ever know how much you do hate to cook. The more than 180 recipes are quick, easy, and tested by other housewives who used to feel hostile to the kitchen. Not only are the recipes as simple as ABC, but they're imaginative as well. Easy meals don't have to be dull, and Peg Bracken proves it.

In addition to the recipes, there is lots of sound—and very amusing—advice about kitchen problems. Peg Bracken discusses leftovers ("when in doubt, throw it out"), surefire entrees like Stayabed Stew and Sweep Steak, things to do with vegetables, salads and salad dressings, last-minute meals, potluck suppers, lunches for the girls, children's parties, and dinners to impress people. The recipes are excellent and Peg Bracken is very funny.

Not an ex library. Has minor handling use wear. The dustjacket has some edge wear with a few tiny edge tears and light some discoloration. The Dj is price clipped. Other than a neat inscription on the ffep and a stamp mark on the last end page the interior is clean. The cover and pages are intact and in good condition.
