My husband and I bought this book at a baby expo where we met the writers. I decided to start trying out recipes in this book while waiting for our daughter's arrival. The asian chicken drumsticks were the best I have ever had. I called my mother right away so she could make it too! This book just proves that very few ingredients can make an awesome dish. The recipes are simple, preparation time is short, and the food is delicious. I can't wait for the second book.

Must have for parents of all ages!

While shopping for a relative's baby shower, the catchy title of this book caught my eye. Mother of a four year old, I realize how challenging the beginning of motherhood is, as well as how challenging it remains. Time for elaborate cooking is nonexistant, espcially while working full time, and this book offers many timesaving and smart tips. The recipes are easy and taste wonderful. It is the first cookbook I have read cover to cover!

Grandma loves cooking the recipes too!

The easy-delicious recipes made me really look good when we took care of the exhausted-new parents and baby for two weeks. Of the sixteen recipes that I tried, during our two-week visit, the family said that every one turned out delicious and elegant! I'm not that secure of a cook either. The slow-cooker recipes are fabulous too. Beside the recipes, the ideas for new mothers are a great read!

not just for Moms!

It's about time a sensible cook book for young parents is available. We now have 3 children, 2 full time jobs and have used the One-Armed cook regularly. The simple, yet healthy recipes are easy to master even for an 'amateur' like myself. The authors emphasize an organized approach to the kitchen which makes meal time a pleasure. I can't think of a better gift to give to newly expecting families!

A perfect gift for new parents

The One-Armed Cook is a great gift for new parents. I've sent copies to four parents of new-borns and they were all enthusiastic about the recipes and the easy directions. But you don't have to be a new parent to find this cookbook handy. I've been cooking for more than 50 years and am delighted that I purchased a copy for myself because the recipes are original and excellent, and the instructions in a step-by-step order are so easy to follow. I'm even hoping that this cookbook will induce my husband to try his hand at cooking.
