Short Note about Stir, Laugh, Repeat

This message was sent to me by a lady who has and says she loves my cookbook Stir, Laugh, Repeat.

All of us have shelves of cookbooks we never open--one really practical (and delicious) cookbook with no-fail recipes is what we need (and what you offer In Laugh, Stir, Repeat).

Review by Rona Shively

Read Stir, Laugh, Repeat and then...Repeat!

Posted February 10, 2010, 6:26 PM EST: I pride myself in being a non-domestic type. Far be it from me to attempt cooking anything that requires the use of an actual stove. I was surprised at how inspired I was by Martha Cheves's cookbook, Stir, Laugh, Repeat. As I read through the recipes, so many of them jumped out at me as things I might actually be able to cook. I especially liked the one for Hash Brown Potatoes Au Gratin. Cheves has put together a reader-friendly cooking guide that gives you not only the information you need to attempt something new, but the inspiration. A wonderful read and a necessary addition to your cookbook collection. Nice work!

Review by Mary Kennedy

This is the cookbook you've been waiting for,

Like many cookbook collectors, I'm always on the lookout for a new cookbook and I've found it in Stir, Laugh, Repeat. The range of recipes is enormous, and all of the selections are fun, easy and a joy to prepare. I can see that the Coconut Loaf Cake is going to be a family favorite, with Pina Colada cake also at the top of the list. This is a fun book and the recipes are terrific, I also love the comments that Martha includes. She offers little stories about her experiences making the recipes, the reactions of the taste testers,etc. Whether you're looking for something fabulous to take to a party (Coconut Ice Box Sheet Cake)or a quick recipe for Sunday breakfast (Monkey Bread) you are bound to find something here to delight you! I had tried several of Martha's recipes on her website and just had to have this book.
