I really like this cookbook. I have been paging through it for days and love the ease of the recipes. Most sound absolutely delicious with very little fuss and use ingredients that are found in most kitchens. And that is what I love. No lengthy grocery list full of things I might use one time, then find out the recipe is something I don't like. No, Ms. Dymock has written this for the busy and hungry family. Some of my favorites that will be tried in the near future are Dilly Potatoes, Whatever Veggie Pasta, Spicy Shrimp, Fried Rice (in the crock pot!!), Sweet Chicken Rice Bowls, French Onion Soup, and Dark Chocolate Mini Cakes. And there are so many more. I cannot wait to start cooking from this cookbook. And I would have before the tour, but I have been having health problems that have limited anything extra during the day (it's been a lot of leftovers). But now I think that is past and I can't wait to get busy trying out recipes.
