About this item
Now in a new edition with over 175,000 copies sold.
This revised edition includes a selection of low-calorie and quick and easy microwave recipes, plus tips for today's busy cook.
First published in 1968, this is the go-to cookbook for young newly independent adults, newly marrieds and people who simply love food. Originally conceived as a culinary celebration of Jewish Holy Days, Second Helpings, Please! has evolved into an indispensable cooking treasury -- one designed with convenience in mind but packed with all sorts of helpful tips and advice for the amateur cook. From discussion of oven temperatures to substitutions (when you have run out of fresh milk, for example) from a primer on how to measure to a dictionary of food terms, this soup-to-nuts compendium features over 500 recipes. A comprehensive index, charts of recommended freezer storage time, glossaries, special occasion menus and dieting hints add even more to the package.
