I happened upon a mint condition, signed copy of this in a Palm Springs Thrift Store. I feel so fortunate! This book taught me how to cook eggs and then entertain a crowd. I've owned it for 10 years now and still refer to it often. It is SO funny to read and the recipes are tried and true. If you can get your hands on it, do. I keep this book opened to "the love affair phase two" chapter, behind a lucite cookbook holder on my counter when not in use. It reminds my husband and I of when we were dating. I can't say he married me because of the recipes but I know they didn't hurt :-) This cookbook is truly charming and priceless. You will love it!
