"Some women, it is said, like to cook. This book is not for them. This book is for those of us who want to fold our dishwater hands around a dry Martini instead of a wet flounder…" —Peg Bracken

How to laugh while cooking OR how to cook while laughing. Whichever way you look at is you'll have a delicious experience with this unique guidebook. THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK contains not only more than 180 quick 'n easy recipes—like STAYABED STEW or SKID ROW STROGANOFF—but a priceless collection of household hints (that actually make sense). All of this is sprinkled generously with spiced wit and savory comments that you will enjoy long after you've turned off the stove.

The I Hate to Cook Book, originally published in 1960, was a Better Homes & Gardens Book Club selection in 1964. This Crest Books paperback edition dates to 1965.

No bent pages, no creases on the spine. The original owner apparently also hated to read. ;) Some ink transfer on the back cover.
