What you're saying..

I have MANY cookbooks and being the only obvious income in my household I have to watch what I spend on food. One day I was looking for a budget recipe book and I came across Cheap. Fast. Good! This cookbook is the only one that I use now. In this time of economic unrest, this book is a true winner!
