I just wanted to recommend a fantastic cookbook that is very on point with the purpose of this blog. Reader's Digest Quick and Thrifty Cooking is a fantastic cookbook with easy to follow recipies. This cookbook has been a staple in my family since I can remember. My mom has a copy of it and I found my own copy at a charity book sale last spring.
I checked on amazon.com and it is currently unavailable so I think it may be out of print, but you may be able to find it at Goodwill in the book section, at a used bookstore, or at a booksale.
