I gave this as a gift to my teenage cousin for christmas. He was certain it was a gag gift, but I have heard he has pulled it out as a reference in his few attempts to keep himself fed. A great basic step by step cookbook for someone who is truly clueless about cooking.

I bought this for my sister who is notorious for being a hopeless cooking case. It is simple, easy to understand and informative. I am confident it will finally get her on the track to putting meals on the table!

Great book for an amateur cook such as myself...very well written and with a broad array of easy to prepare recipes...I would recommend this book for anyone who needs brushing up on the basics as well as entry level cooks like myself.

It was a gag gift for a friend who recently lost his wife and didn't know anything about cooking. I have used "Dummies" books in the past and have always considered them great.

My Mom was a terrible cook, and so am I. This book has taught me somethings that I didn't know. This is a fun book.

Learning to cook is a breeze with this book!

Got this as a gift for my future daughter in law. I got cooking for dummies years ago and loved it because the receipies are easy to follow also provides great tips on how to set up your kitchen.
