Stir, Laugh, Repeat - Book Review by Laura Duksta

I received your book --it's great!! I love the cover--its got a beautiful energy and the colors, title and subtitle all work really well together!

"I grew up in a restaurant that my grandparents owned. When I received Martha's book my mom was visiting; she picked it up and proceeded to read every story to me while we both belly laughed. Stir, Laugh, Repeat is filled with delicious, simple recipes all topped off with Martha's secret ingredient-her amazing sense of humor!"

Stir, Laugh, Repeat - Review by Marilyn Meredith

Martha A. Cheves has compiled recipes that are easy to cook, with a minimum number of ingredients--many of which you probably already have in your pantry--and best of all, each one comes out tasting great.

I'm not fond of baking and I get tired of cooking dinner since I've done it nearly every night for 58 years, one in awhile for two or three, sometimes for seven and often more. I'm always looking for something different, easy, inexpensive and delicious to fix--Stir, Laugh, Repeat does all this and more.

And, as a bonus, great cooking tips are scattered throughout.

Stir, Laugh, Repeat would be the perfect shower gift for a bride-to-be.

Frugal Cooking at it's Best!

Frugal cooking at it's best!, September 8, 2009
By Angela S. Sullivan "Angela Sullivan, MA" (Royston, GA)

I love to cook, but I get really frustrated when I try to use recipe books because I'm always missing one or two ingredients! This is not the case with Stir, Laugh, Repeat! Martha Cheves provides real recipes for real families using normal ingredients! She makes cooking for a family easy and inexpensive! I love how she is able to take an old dish and make it new by adding something I would have never thought of.

The best part about the book is that it is not only a cook book to reference, but it is also entertaining to sit and read like a novel! Martha tells wonderful stories about her family. I cannot tell you how many times I've reached for her book when I couldn't think of anything to cook for dinner! She also has a blog that is filled with great tips for making cooking easy and fun!

Well done! I am looking forward to her next edition!
