Thank you so much for the wishlist book! I don't really hate to cook, I just hate to cook fussy recipes. My cooking style is pretty much "throw whatever is in the fridge/cabinets into a pot and consider it done when you get tired of waiting." It works well for soups, chilis, curries, stir fries and things like that, but I'm hoping this book has some other fuss-free ideas for things to make!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This was a fun read, with recipe descriptions like "very easy; very good with beer; good without it too" and descriptions of ways to get out of cooking or make the easiest dish possible when required.

This is headed out to the winner of the Non-fiction Sweepstakes.

An awesome book! When making myself some food I prefer stuff that is simple and fast to make! So this appears to be the perfect book for me! Thank you very much for this book and the labels!

Thank you for sending me this book. The title suits me to a tee. I hate to cook and so the short and simple recipes are at least within my ability and inclinations to try.

Updated November 4, 2019

I am not really an adventurous cook and I only use my tried and true recipes when I need to cook, which luckily is not often. So I have not attempted any recipes from this cookbook but I read through the introduction and section headings and some of the recipes, and was very entertained by the humour and wit of the author. It should be fun to follow the recipes in the matching situations/moods, but I hate to cook so much that I don't even do that. Now the book will move on to someone who would appreciate it more as the next bookcrosser has a version of it on her wishlist.

How exciting to be gifted this classic book!! Thank you so much, dear Bookcrossing buddy, mcsar! You are so thoughtful, many thanks for the book postcards, labels and the new cloth patchfor my Bookcrossing bag! I sat on my kitchen stool, drinking my tea and started reading while my “Guzinta” (Everything goes into the pot) soup simmered. A couple Turkey wings simmered with onions, garlic, carrots and roasted squash. Turkey wings removed and the veggies were puréed, salt , pepper, cumin, frozen spinach cubes and milk. It was wonderful!!
Warm wishes back to you!
