From Reidhead Randomness:
I have to confess that I am a cookbook COLLECTOR!  I. LOVE. COOKBOOKS!   From the moment I got this one in the mail, I opened it up and had about half of the book 'dogeared' to try the recipes!  

When I do meal planning for the week, I go to my "WALL OF COOKBOOKS" and choose one.  For that week, all my meals come from the same book.  When I am smart, at the end of the week, I tuck my shopping list and menu back in the book, and then it's ready for the next time I choose that book.  
Two weeks ago was this FABULOUS book's turn for the week.  I made so many of these great dishes!  Let me just tell you that the Aloha Burger, the Pudding Fruit Salad (that I made for Mothers Day), the Lemon Lush (that I brought to a neighborhood women's get-together...and came home with an empty dish...and tons of requests for the recipe), and the no-bake eclaire cake (that tasted good even with gluten free grahm crackers)....were definitely our favorites...but there were SO MANY good ones!  The recipes are easy to follow with good instructions....and they all have a beautiful (tempting) picture to convince you to try it!
