Description: Philosopher’s Chowder. Skinny Meatloaf. Fat Man’s Shrimp. Immediate Fudge Cake. These are just a few of the beloved recipes from Peg Bracken’s classic I HATE TO COOK BOOK. Written in a time when women were expected to have full, delicious meals on the table for their families every night, Peg Bracken offered women who didn’t revel in this obligation an alternative... quick, simple meals that took minimal effort but would still satisfy.

50 years later, times have certainly changed – but the appeal of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK hasn’t.

This book is for everyone, men and women alike, who wants to get from cooking hour to cocktail hour in as little time as possible.


Peg Bracken's "I Hate to Cook Book", was written for me! No seriously... most of the time I hate cooking if it takes longer then ten minutes. It's so much fun to read and the recipes

are incredibly simple. Almost every recipe contains ingredients that you would always have on hand in your home.

For those of you who really hate to cook, The I Hate to Cook Book is a fun and entertaining read. Peg Bracken feels like a friend who popped in to chat and have a cocktail.
