I Hate To Cook Cookbook Review & Giveaway-2 winners!*CLOSED*


  ~I Hate To Cook CookBook~
          By~
   Peg Bracken

Her writing is clever and witty, downright hilarious at times. Even without considering that it is a cookbook, it makes a great read.
The book has 180 recipes, divided into chapters with headings like "Potluck Suppers, or How to Bring the Water for the Lemonade" and "Desserts, or People are Too Fat Anyway." The first chapter has 30 recipes, one for each day of the month, because Peg noticed that her husband (and the rest of the family) tended to get cranky when they were forced to eat the same thing day in and day out. Some, she says directly, are "pretty dull", but they taste good and they'll get you through the month. Others in the book are more interesting, but they're all quite easy.


"There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who don't cook out of and have NEVER cooked out of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK, and the other kind...The I HATE TO COOK people consist mainly of those who find other things more interesting and less fattening, and so they do it as seldom as possible. Today there is an Annual Culinary Olympics, with hundreds of cooks from many countries ardently competing. But we who hate to cook have had our own Olympics for years, seeing who can get out of the kitchen the fastest and stay out the longest."

- Peg Bracken

Philosopher's Chowder. Skinny Meatloaf. Fat Man's Shrimp. Immediate Fudge Cake. These are just a few of the beloved recipes from Peg Bracken's classic I HATE TO COOK BOOK. Written in a time when women were expected to have full, delicious meals on the table for their families every night, Peg Bracken offered women who didn't revel in this obligation an alternative: quick, simple meals that took minimal effort but would still satisfy.

50 years later, times have certainly changed - but the appeal of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK hasn't.

This book is for everyone, men and women alike, who wants to get from cooking hour to cocktail hour in as little time as possible.

  65. The last time I ruined dinner was when I forgot I was making rice and got busy on the computer. I smelled burnt popcorn, which I thought was odd, since noone was making popcorn. Then it hit me. I completely ruined the pot that I had just got as a Christmas present. It scorched so badly that it ruined the nonstick coating.1

  107. #1 The last time I screwed up cooking was a few days ago when I was trying a new pork chop recipe in the frying pan. I hadn't done the recipe before, nor had I cooked pork chops in the frying pan before. Basically I had no idea the thin sliced pork chops would cook so quickly and by the time I was done adding the other ingredients they had been in their for like 25 mins... By the time we ate them they were quite rubbery and dry :(

  144. I have lots of cooking disasters. Recently I helped my 12 year son and didn't pay attention when he was adding a TABLESPOON of oregano to the spaghetti sauce. (It should have been a teaspoon). #1

  150. 1 I don't know what happened, since I followed the recipe to a T, but I made baby back ribs and cut them open to serve. They were red inside! I could go with that with beef, but pork? No way. I nuked them for a few more minutes and served. So far, so good. lol

  166. This is a fun thread!!

    I made a cake once with 1c. salt instead of white sugar. Ugh.

    Then there's the calzones I made that looked like sea creatures.

    The most recent failure I can blame on my oven, which is ANCIENT and has "hot spots" and "cold spots". I made a cake and the bottom was completely burned and the top was nearly raw. It was the first time I'd used my oven ~and it was my boyfriend's birthday cake!!
