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.
My Thoughts - I actually love to cook but I still enjoyed this book. It has a lot of simple recipes. Peg is funny too. This book is the 50th Anniversary Edition but you'd never know it. Definitely recommend whether you cook or not.
Anna from Hatchett is allowing me to give away 2 copies of The I Hate to Cook book.
