Praise for How to Cook Without a Book by Pam Anderson:
"How to Cook Without a Book should win a prize for most understated cookbook title. What Pam Anderson really outlines here is a culinary tradition for today’s American family; a practical, nourishing, and delicious way to deal with your family’s everyday food life without written-in-stone recipes and without fuss or arcane ingredients. You’ll love Pam holding your hand while you create the dishes that your children and grandchildren will one day certainly be cooking without a book."
–Arthur Schwartz, author of What to Cook and Naples at Table
"For down-to-earth, ‘can-do’ cooking that tastes terrific, nobody does it better than Pam Anderson. The book’s common sense tips and kitchen wisdom will not only inspire new cooks but inform well-seasoned ones, too."
–Rick Rodgers, author of Thanksgiving 101 and Christmas 101
"[The] book gives you confidence that [the recipes] will work, and you will not be disappointed."
—The New York Times
"Her writing is sensible and easy to understand. Useful and challenging enough for both experienced cooks and novices."
"My pick for cookbook of the year. . . . It’s a book that both novices and experienced cooks will appreciate."
—Times/Post Intelligencer, Seattle, WA
"If you want to produce contemporary perfections in standards like meatloaf, roast turkey, cole slaw, and cobbler, this is the book for you."
