Anna: Another dependable cookbook from dependable Rachel o’Rachel.
Kirstin: I was surprised by all the Asian food in this one. I didn’t think it all worked, but it was lovely to have the variety.
Maureen: It said what it was on the tin: “Simple, delicious family food.” All true.
Anna: I only had one disaster and that was the upside down apple butterscotch thingamajig which was unusual for Rachel because you can usually count on her baking recipes.
Maureen: The onion bread didn’t work, either. It didn’t taste bad, exactly, but no one ate it. It could have been operator error, but one disaster out of a month of cooking is pretty good.
Anna: there’s lots more things that I’m planning to cook after this month and like her other cookbooks I expect this to be part of my weekly rotation.
Kirstin: I think this might be my favourite of her books. Very un-fussy and good recipes.
Maureen: Yes, I agree. I didn’t have to go to any stores for any exotic ingredients and they were all good recipes. It’s definitely a keeper.
