Description: The I Hate to Cook Book first came to the rescue of those who find the kitchen a snare and a confusion and a pain in the neck. The reluctant cooks of the world responded with hearty cheers and appetites and a plea for more. So Peg Bracken whipped up two more books filled with recipes, spiced with humor, and topped with practical advice. 

Then came a new generation with the same old kitchen complaints. So Peg took her three books, boiled them down, and -- voila -- The Compleat I Hate to Cook Book. 

Now, let's hear it for Peg Bracken in the altogether -- altogether over 400 of those easy, fast, good-tasting I-hate-to-cook recipes, virtually three books in one. Or to put it another way, we finally got the best of Peg Bracken -- the best, the best- tasting, and the funniest -- and here it is in one big book. Hurry Curry, Corn Chip Casserole, Ting Ling's Peanut Butter Crisps, and hundreds more, plus the easiest, best desserts this side of Kahlua-Over-Ice-Cream -- they're all here in one delectable, not to mention hilarious, volume, ready to put more life in your lifestyle, more laughs in your homework, and good, easy food on the table. 

If you want to laugh while you cook, cook while you laugh, and make the whole miserable business of cooking slightly less so, while serving forth some eminently edible dishes, this book is for you. 

P.S. This book is also for those who like to cook, regardless of what Peg Bracken says.
