Andrew Schloss gives us something of a throwback in this classic-style cookbook filled with all kinds of recipes for all kinds of meals. The recipes are simple and straightforward, with barely a paragraph of instructions for each one, but you'll never want for a basic recipe when you have this cookbook on your shelf. I've always relied on this 1930's era housewife's cookbook that I inherited to help me find how to do basic cooking, and this book is going right next to it. The book starts with basic cooking skills - marinades, broths, salads, and sauces, and then proceeds through baking and roasting. Then the fun starts with recipes for snacks, kid favorites, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, stir-fry, fish, low-calorie, and even chocolate! You can rescue your next unplanned family meal or lay out the menu for the week by simply browsing through this book.
