I love books — those bound pages of the written words that can take a reader on a magic carpet ride to faraway places or to distant times past.

Many people claim they “hate to cook” or that they “can’t cook,” and you would understand why if you stepped into their kitchens. Even a short, 30-minute recipe that requires only a couple chopped ingredients becomes very laborious when using a dull knife; and then cooking with a cheap, thin pan that causes foods to stick or burn only escalates the problem. No wonder people choose to eat out or warm up a pre-made convenience meal from the freezer.
