One thought on “The I Hate to Cook Book

  1. Rachelfm

    This rating is based entirely upon the writing and not upon the recipes I m not sure I have any intention of ever trying any of these recipes , but would sort of love for a book group to read it and take them all pot luck.Essentially, Peg Bracken was the Amy Sedaris of 1960 She was the woman who thought it was your god given right to have a cocktail during cocktail hour and not be fussing in the kitchen Bracken acknowledges that many women don t like to cook, and that especially for a mother wor [...]

    The Story This cookbook was first published in 1960 You know, before cholesterol was counted and before we knew better than to serve each baked potato with a stick of butter This fiftieth anniversary edition is just as delightful as the first edition, with a Foreward by Jo Bracken, Peg s daughter The book itself witty and funny, and perfect for the a college student who is just learning to cook b newlywed who focused all of his her time on lecture and not enough time on lab c the busy profession [...]

    I m old enough that I actually have one of her receipes stayabed stew clipped from Women s Day or some such magazine from the early 80 s This book is a time capsule there s no mention of microwaves, I think butter is an ingredient in every dish and she thinks the perfect desert is an Irish coffee She doesn t repeat the old joke, what s the perfect food Irish coffee because it has the 4 food groups, caffeine, sugar, fat and alcohol It s written during the time when kids birthday parties were at h [...]

    I used to roll my eyes at the idea of actually reading a cookbook and not just using it as a reference for recipes, but this one is worth reading The author is funny and down to earth Sure, the book is dated in a lot of ways I don t think I can find an ice cube tray where the sections can be removed, and now that there are hair elastics that don t pull, I don t think I could convince my daughter to use a pipe cleaner for her ponytails That s part of the charm, though It s a nice little snapshot [...]

    I have probably looked briefly at like 2000 cookbooks in my life.There are like 20 that I have completely read.This is one of the first cookbooks in my life that I really started using.It is a great cookbook because 90% of the recipes are so easy yet they are at the same time so good.With so many cookbooks, at least for me, a lot of the recipes are really not that great.In this cookbook so many of the recipes are really good.If I know somebody I like that is getting married this is the wedding g [...]

    The I Hate to Cook Book starts off like this Some women, it is said, love to cook.This book is not for them.Basically, this book is for me.The I Hate To Cook Book has tons of great recipes sorted in to simplistic chapters, each focusing on another important aspect of the chore of cooking how to use leftovers, soups, salads, fancy meals for guests, last minute meals, cooking tips etc I loved the recipes in this book, and I actually almost want to get into a kitchen and try some of them out usuall [...]

  7. Jenny

    I read the first edition of this cookbook with my son when we discovered my mother s unopened first edition at my father s house We laughed and talked about the recipes and talked about my mother s reputation for cooking that was so bad that my father taught me to cook before I got to Junior High I remember laughing at Peg Bracken s recipe for the perfect martini only very cold Vodka and an olive and thinking that many of the recipes sounded like they would be good The 50th Anniversary Edition i [...]

  8. Amy

    I don t usually count cookbooks as Books I ve Read BUT the I Hate to Cook Book begs to be read cover to cover The recipes are true late 50s early 60s monstrosities, but the commentary that accompanies them is delightful Highly enjoyable and let s be real a couple tings in there don t sound that bad.

  9. Marsha

    Do you HATE to cook Would you rather do almost anything else, like paint the garage or weed the lawn Do you resent having to slave over a hot stove night after night after night Whatever happened to women s lib, anyway Okay, maybe in the 21st century, women don t always have to cook But in 1960 the burden of housework still fell on women s shoulders for the most part and Peg Bracken was fed up with it Why would she want to waste hours on some gourmet meal her family wasn t going to appreciate in [...]

  10. Vicki

    I used to love to cook and bake Now I only do it to keep us from starving and going broke from eating out.This book is full of recipes that were popular in the 60 s The book has many recipes that are quick, easy and have just a few ingredients, which are my favorite kinds of recipes Many of the recipes use a cream of soup, but it would be easy to use healthier choices like low fat and low sodium , if you re eating healthy To make this cookbook even better, there is humor spread throughout it.You [...]

  11. Gigi

    One of the funniest reads I have had in a while This is quick and enjoyable I guess I should give it 4 since I won t make 95% of the recipes, but I just had such a good time reading it Plus, there is this cool section at the end with all these tips that are like gold nuggets of household wisdom A witty time capsule that still holds up today However, I think many of these recipes are the reason my husband shutters at the word casserole.Update I ve made the Elevator Lady Spice Cookies twice Better [...]

  12. Elise Noorda

    Since I love to cook, and wonder about people who don t, I had to pick up this book when I saw it at the library I actually kind of liked it, although the recipes didn t do much for me What I liked was the idea that although she doesn t naturally like to cook, she recognizes that it is an important part of family life, and therefore something she needs to do Many days I feel like that, too A very funny section about how to sound like you are a cook Fatigue my lettuce I think the author must actu [...]

  13. Pam

    Enjoyed the commentary, not the recipes Peg Bracken is the 1960 s version of Rachael Ray or Sandra Lee get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as you can Too much condensed soup, bouillion cubes, etc for my taste But it s good to know that there were some women in that era that wanted to bust out of the kitchen and get to the party

  14. Janice

    LOVE IT And all her other books Hate to cook, hate to cook cookbook, hate to housecleaning, her travel book If she has other books, I need to read them, too

  15. Lucy

    This cookbook is worth reading for the commentary, and some of the recipes are actually good, though a lot most depend on various canned things, especially canned mushroom soup We ve adopted from the first edition and used for years the bean salad recipe named here Aunt Bebe s Bean Bowl The instructions state Mix everything together and marinate for twenty four hours Stir a few times, if you happen to think of it, while it marinates Recommended, even if you like to cook Maybe you won t adopt any [...]

  16. Phyllis Barlow

    I first read this book back in the seventies when I married and started cooking for someone other than myself I bought this edition to give to a friend and decided to read it again to see if I still liked it I did But it s important to keep in mind that this was written in 1960, and a lot of things we have now were not available then I m looking at you, microwave oven Even if you never cook a single thing out of this book, read all of it because her style is so humorous that you will be cracking [...]

  17. Jessica

    Awards Grade 5th an UpSummary A twist on a classic cook book Say goodbye to complicated recipes that no one ever uses These recipes are simple for the simple mindedReview I am someone who actually loves to cook However, my mother hates to cook so this was a treat for her But it was a treat for me too Uses Teach about cooking Teach about recipes Teach about s informational text

  18. Ashley Lambert-Maberly

    Pretty hilarious, and actually helpful at the same time She s got some wonderful cheats that still work great The illustrations are delightful, the narrative voice is honest and charming, and it s one of my favourites and the sequel is just as good if not better Note 5 stars amazing, wonderful, 4 very good book, 3 decent read, 2 disappointing, 1 awful, just awful I m fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s.

  19. Merri Su

    Entertaining and somewhat informative More interesting when viewed as a glimpse into mid century housewifery e.g the chapter on Ladies Luncheon, which made me think of the book and movie The Help Most of the recipes seemed to make use of cream of mushroom soup or similar, or canned or fresh mushrooms meaning not for me or onions in some form meaning not for my dad, of whom I was thinking when I selected the book , though there were some good ideas to be gleaned.

  20. Diana

    Another cookbook I received from my mother when I married I have her copy so I have the 1960 s version that she used to make occasional meals from I would like to see the updated one just to see what changes were made over the years.

  21. Ruth Lym

    I thought this would be a better cook book than it is It was written before we knew much about healthy unhealthy I tried a couple of the recipes and the results were meh

  22. Ronna

    I love to cook, but this book was a hoot Funny, sarcastic, and even some useful tips, written a long time ago before anyone called them Life Hacks.

  23. Gwen

    Surprisingly entertaining cookbook with fascinating insights into midcentury American food Most of these recipes I would never actually make, but I love reading cookbooks for their historical and cultural value.Food in 1960s America I was surprised to learn that curry powder was considered a staple of Bracken s pantry, even in 1960 8 As I learned from my reading of Meet the Austins, lamb 14 17 was a very popular meat in the 1960s, and I wonder what political economic forces made lamb virtually d [...]

  24. Chrissy

    Let me start by saying I Don t Hate To Cook it does rank a little higher on my list right above going to the dentist and a couple above getting my yearly physical I love when the meal hits the table it makes me feel good that I made the meal for my family I just hate the hours in the kitchen to get to that spot.I was so glad to receive this cookbook for review Finally a cookbook that sounds like it was written just for me I am always looking for not only healthy recipes to fix my family but fast [...]

  25. Eileen Souza

    I never thought I would fall in love with a cook book, but this is the one When I told my brother about this book, he said I should wait around for the soon to be released I m too Dangerous to Cook Book In his defense, I have had my arm trapped in the oven door the burn mark is hardly noticeable , had my shirt catch fire while attempting to spray a pan, stuck my fingers into boiling sugar at that perfect moment when it hardened so fast that my fingers were trapped in the molten pan, and turned m [...]

    From My Blog return return On July 26, 2010, the 50th Anniversary edition of Peg Bracken s classic, The I Hate To Cook Book will be released Bracken s book would have made for a brilliant wedding gift for me twenty years ago, yet is one I am thrilled to own and will be using on a daily basis from now on Let me be upfront, I am an extremely lazy cook, which is to say I avoid it at all costs much to the delight of the takeaway places near me When I heard the title I just knew I had to give the boo [...]

  27. Kimberly Ann

    I can comprehend why when this was originally written in 1960 it was such a hit What could be better than Traditional 60 s comfort food All those canned goods soups, condiments, veggies, grains mixed together or layered with the main ingredient meat in one pot, casserole baking dish set to cook for 1 3 hours You walk away, finish up what ever else you have to do, come back serve it up nice hot fresh to your happy family BLEECH, I would never cook w a canned soup nor a dry one Although you know h [...]

  28. Mary (BookHounds)

    I thought this book looked familiar and sure enough, my mom gave me a copy when I first got married 25 years ago I have been using the Turkey Divan recipe for years I substitute chicken as a lazy way to make a casserole for pot lucks I finally sat down and read through the whole thing last night Not only are the recipes wonderful, easy and elegant, but I never noticed the humor there as well you have to READ this cookbook for the off the cuff humor that hasn t dimmed in time I found myself laugh [...]
