What you're saying..

I purchased Cheap Fast Good, and received it last week. I started cooking from the book last Wednesday. With the exception of the ham I purchased for Christmas Day, I have cooked from this book 1-2 times per day. Let me say, this is the best cookbook I have, and has recipes that my family loves!!! Thank you so much for the cookbook. I'm hoping I can purchase Desperation Dinners soon, and if it is anything like Cheap Fast Good, it will be another favorite.
