Philosopher's Chowder. Skinny Meatloaf. Fat Man's Shrimp. Immediate Fudge Cake. These are just a few of the beloved recipes from Peg Bracken's classic I HATE TO COOK BOOK. Written in a time when women were expected to have full, delicious meals on the table for their families every night, Peg Bracken offered women who didn't revel in this obligation an alternative: quick, simple meals that took minimal effort but would still satisfy.
50 years later, times have certainly changed - but the appeal of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK hasn't.
This book is for everyone, men and women alike, who wants to get from cooking hour to cocktail hour in as little time as possible.
What Did I Think?
There are so many delicious recipes in this book that I would like to try such as Cheese and Wine Bake or Lasagne Casserole. Don't they sound divine? I love how Peg Bracken named her chapters! My favorite is "Desserts or People Are Too Fat Anyway". That's how the whole book is written with a lovely sense of humor that is meant to lift up even the most frustrated person to cook a delicious meal. The recipes aren't overly complicated and use everyday ingredients to create tasty, simple dishes that kids and company alike will adore!
