Description: This practical book is intended mainly for today's busy housewives with small kitchens and modern but basic cooking equipment. It recognizes that pastry is often bought in frozen packages and that ice cream comes from the supermarket. 

The easy-to-follow recipes are for relatively simple desserts and original cakes, and the decorations are never over-elaborate or costly. Included are specially selected traditional sweet dishes, snacks and savories, and international favorites, with a host of ideas for presenting them in unique and interesting ways. 

This superb book, illustrated with 82 full color "show-how" photographs, will provide new inspirations and an exciting culinary world for today's discriminating housewives and hostesses.
