Does anyone have this book by someone named Brian McCarthy? I like that it's a simple, no-fuss cookbook. For instance, sometimes I want a technique for basic baked French fries, not sweet potato baked French fries with cayenne and truffle oil. If I wanted to help a teen learn to cook, I'd choose this because it has a bit of everything, the text of each recipe is short and non-intimidating, the ingredients are easy to find, and the author is not afraid of presenting recipes that could be called too easy.

It's not always the healthiest cookbook, but when I want to, it's easy to tweak the recipes by adding whole wheat flour, reducing the sugar, etc.

It doesn't have pictures, but I like the layout with one recipe per page.

I did not make much from it yet, but everything was a success: the French fries (I made a poutine with it using a packet of brown sauce and Earth Island Monterey Jack), the berry crisp, the roasted chestnuts and the eggplant over rice.
