Julie Bosman, in The New York Times, wrote about a cookbook that I think I’ll look for in the store. It originally came out in 1960, but has been updated by the daughter of the author. When the original author shopped the cookbook to six male publishers, they rejected it. A female editor at Harcourt, Brace loved it. It sold more than three million copies. The title of the cookbook?
The I Hate to Cook Book.
Oh yeah. My kind of book.
Recipes that use cake mixes rather than sifted flour and making it from scratch. Canned soup. Canned mushrooms. Uh huh. You heard me. Thirty minutes in the kitchen, not four hours.
Yep. My kind of cookbook.
