This is The I Hate To Cook Book by Peg Bracken, Drawings by Hilary Knight, Harcourt, Brace and World, New York, c. 1960.
"To come right to the point- if you have a kitchen (pullman or otherwise) in your home and are expected to cook in it, but hate to cook. this book is for you. The more than 180 recipes are quick, easy, and tested by other housewives who used to feel hostile to the kitchen." (Inside jacket) Well, if that doesn't say it all! This was quite a revolutionary book back in its day and is a truly delightful cookbook today.
Aside from some tape and wear on the dust jacket, this hardcover book is in great shape with clean, unmarked pages. This would make a great gift for anyone who loves to cook. Or who hates to! 176 pages
