I stumbled upon a book called Cooking Basics, a
Betty Crocker edition. It introduces you to the
cooking tools and the herbs and
what kinds of foods their used for. The have both
illustrations and terms of pasta that goes together.
Then, they go over food safety and cleanliness. The
book’s presentation is sky high good, on the very best
level. They have recipes I have never tried and some
I have heard of. They have salads for the health nuts
and the people wanting to lose
weight.

They list the ingredients, the prep times, the full
time it takes to cook the dish, calories and tips
all together on one page. The tips are highly informing.
The spaghetti with marinara sauce says that the
sauce may look ready to eat afterheating to a boil.
Yet, the longer you cook it over low heat is needed
to develop the flavors.

With Fetuccine alfredo,it says use a fork to lift one
strand of fettuccine and press gently against inside
of the Dutch oven. This pasta should be tender,
not mushy.IF you don’t have some of the ingredients
listed for the dish, they list substitutes.Those
are just a few of the tips in the book.

This book has recipes like garlic smashed potatoes,
lasagna, macaroni and cheese, pumpkin pie,mousse
cake and other delicious desserts. As for other foods,
the book also has recipes for grilled
pork chops,meatloaf, taco casserole,lemon chicken
stir fry, Dijon chicken, Roasted chicken and potatoes,
veggie lasagna, rigatoni, chicken and spinach stuff
shells and much more. Now, I just pointed out some
of the foods I like spotted in the book. If you
want to know about more of its recipes, buy it,
borrow it, or get it from the library.

There is plenty of information for you to collect
from this book. There is plenty to keep in your mind
and see displayed in your cooking.
I would recommend this book “Cooking Basics” for
those on all cooking levels. I just got this book
because I’m a beginner cook. I know how to cook hot dogs,
french fries, and an egg, but that’s all. I want to
learn the recipes in this book and do a takeover.
I want to cook food I enjoy and that others
enjoy. I want to experiment with cooking and see
what special touches I can figure out based on this book.

All the Rules book review, with 33 chapters of secrets for women getting their marriage proposal!

books photo: Books books2.jpg

I read a wonderful book that can inspire a lot of women. 
This book is called All the Rules, by Ellen Fein and Sherrie
Schneider. The genre of this book is romance.  This book is
marked With a sticker stating that millions of copies of this
book were sold. I just so happen to Find this book at a Detroit
Public library. This book tells us how women should act with men
to get marriage proposals. It’s a great thing to fall in love,
but it’s really saying a lot to get married and confirm that love .

Society takes marriage more seriously than boyfriend and
girlfriend relationships. Well, men are excited with challenges.
That’s why majority of the time they stick around when the woman
they love is a challenge. This book has many ways to trigger
emotion from a man. The first chapter of the book says “Don’t
talk to a man first and don’t ask him to dance”. This way you can
tell if he’s really interested in you. If he is interested in you,
he will get your attention. He will approach you. I myself never
approach a guy first so I agree whole-heartedly.

The other chapter says don’t stare at men or   talk too much.
Staring at men makes it obvious that you like him according to
the book. Also, the book says “Talking too much and bombarding
a man with your abandonment issues or  other issues you have
will most likely scare him off. In the next section of the book,
it says don’t call him first. Let him do most of the calling.

Set a timer so that you only spend 10 minutes on the phone with
this man. There are more insights in the book like the fact that
you should not try to change a man. The book also goes on to say
to be honest but mysterious. Think of it like this.Most people don’t
want to know everything that happens in a movie until they watch
a movie. It’s thesame thing with dating. A man dating a woman
doesn’t need to know her whole schedule, when she’s always available,
etc. The book states to make a man wait for sex and bingo! That’s
right on! That’s clever! That’s taking the reinsof the situation.

I believe 6 months is a good enough time to make a man
wait for sex. Some other people might say 3 months is a
good enough time to wait for sex. Some people might say 3 months,
6 months, or longer than those times. It all depends on the
person and when you are comfortable with your mate and ready
to do the deed.Anyways, this book takes your mind to new and
greater levels. It touches base with women in different  situations.

It recommends what to do and what not to do. It opens up a
woman’s mind on ways to get a man’s heart. You have to play
your cards right. Doing the rules the right way can land you
that wedding ring if the man of your dreams is really is in
love with you. I give this book two thumbs up, 5 stars and a 10
on a scale of 1 to 10.  I recommend this book today, tomorrow,
and forever. This book is a treasure, great to borrow and wonderful
to own. So go ahead ladies. Take this knowledge and apply it in
the romantic area of your life. Anyway, the publisher of the book
is Grand Central Publishing. The price is $10.00 in America and
$11.00 in Canada.
