Anyone Can Cook

I Don't Know How To Cook BookWhat It Is: The third edition of this foolproof cookbook for even the most ill-fated wannabe chefs. As Chef Gusteau tells Remy in Ratatouille – anyone can cook! And that would appear to be the case with the sweet little manual that final helps you understand the difference between whisking and whipping, broiling and baking, all while introducing you to 300 ah-mazing recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and entertaining. Skip the mac & cheese and whip up something smashing, like Stuffed Green Bell Peppers or a refreshing Gazpacho.

Who It’s For: Your little brother or sister, who’s moving out on their own soon. Your friend that made a pledge to learn to cook for his or her New Year’s Resolution. A loved one looking for foolproof, simple recipes they can whip up on a weeknight (even if they’re already a-ok in the kitchen).

What It Costs: The new hardcover third edition of this book retails for $18.99, but you can track down older paperback copies for less (keeping in mind the new book has 60 new recipes in it).

Where It’s At: Indigo, online.

Speaking of books, how about an extra opportunity to nab an entry into my The Girl On The Train giveaway? Leave a comment below telling me about your kitchen prowess – could you benefit from this handy kitchen helper?
