KIRKUS REVIEW

Those housewives whose meals have dwindled to variations of chopped chuck and spaghetti in scope, and have been rescued by Mary Meade's wildly refreshing menu suggestions in her syndicated newspaper feature, will welcome anything this genius of the daily bread has to offer: others may be assured of the sound good sense of Mary Meade. No gourmet she, but a supermarket trooper, offering 500 ""just folks"" recipes-- easy and sensible. There is no chit-chat, no annotated history of food -- just recipes, agreeable and interesting. Once or twice Mrs. Church kicks up her heels with a daredevil enterprise like ""Crazy Chocolate Cake"" (with vinegar and some kookie mixin') but in general, expect no didos -- just good food.
