Subtitled 'Delicious, Low-Cost Dishes for Your Family That Everyone Will Love!', this no nonsense cookbook offers over 250 recipes that cost less than $3 a serving to prepare. Remember, that's per serving so you will probably spend more than $3 to buy all the necessary ingredients.

The menu categories include vegetarian, aquatic, poultry, meat, soups, and stews. The ingredients and preparation instructions for each recipe are limited to no more than two pages, so it is easy to use the book in the kitchen without having to flip pages.

Sprinkled throughout the book are boxes offering nuggets of kitchen wisdom or fun facts. For example, you'll discover that the steam from cooking hot chiles can be just as much of an irritant to your eyes as if you got the chile oil on your fingers and then rubbed your eyes.

Basically cooked in a single container, these soups and stews take less than twenty minutes to prepare. Besides being inexpensive they are great tasting and nourishing as well.

If North Beach Cioppino, Guinness Beef Stew, Thai Chicken Noodle Soup or Italian Pork Stew Bolognese sound appetizing to you, then this is a cookbook you'll wish to own.
