This little cookbook has wonderful recipies and is a staple in my kitchen. The only small fault is the meat and fish section which doesn't have anything appealing (to me, anyways). Favourite recipies include a wonderful coffee cake, blueberry cranberry bread, and apple muffin. Read full review

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipes are unusual, but use regular ingredients. Our family favorite is Pumpkin Mush, which is excellent on a cold winter morning.
