Professional Reviews

Fifteen years ago, I was a Girl Scout leader, a volunteer for many church groups, and a cook for a huge gathering of people. There was a time where both of my daughters were involved in six after-school activities each. These social activities took place after swim meets, dance recitals, and ALL GIRL LITTLE LEAGUE.

That's only a few to mention, there were a variety of social functions, including camp-outs. The first thing that came to mind after reading Cherie Kimmon's fantastic cookbook is that my only regret with this survival guide is not having it back then. This is not only a great cookbook to expand your culinary horizons, but is also the perfect gift for anyone who needs to cook, whether it's for one person, or a group of people. I highly recommend this cookbook to beginner cooks, and experienced cooks as well.

This cookbook is intelligent, and the recipes are simple and delicious. Cornbread stuffing, pasta, and casseroles are appreciated by moms, and grandparents. Meatloaf, soups, and sandwiches were old time favorites from many children I knew. This book is delightful to read as it covers appetizers to incredible desserts. The chicken dinners, salad bar, and hamburger bar will be enjoyed by athletes, and anyone else who's hungry. For a tasty, additional variety. Cherie includes a waffle bar, and a sundae bar. Who would not feast on these mouthwatering bars?

To make reading easy on the eyes, Cherie includes special notes for each recipe, along with helpful hints, and tips on festive decorating ideas. The author includes servings for one person to twenty-five guests, and offers suggestions for dessert topping. It's impossible for the reader to get bored, after looking at awesome illustrations per page. Guidelines for pre-game and post-game meals are included, and the recipes will be enjoyed by athletes, and any social gathering in which large groups of people meet. Cherie Kimmon's step-by-step illustration of the cooking process is a comprehensive, practical presentation of great recipes that should be given to all moms. This book is packed with basic information on measurements and cooking time for tasty,and easy to prepare dishes. "THE POTLUCK SURVIVAL GUIDE: Care & Feeding Of The Athletic Supporter" is as informative as THE GOOD HUSEKEEPING ILLUSTRATED COOKBOOK: America's Bestselling Step-By-Step Cookbook, with more than 1400 recipes.
