Second Helpings Please!
Generations of families have grown up with Second Helpings Please! and after 49 years, it is still one of the most requested cookbooks. Now, by popular demand, it is going into its 17th printing. This tireless favourite will capture the hearts of a new generation of budding cooks as well as replace well worn and fragile cookbooks of those who have been cooking from it for many, many years. Packed with the same recipes that are just as popular as they were 49 years ago, the book was updated to represent some of the innovations of our times, such as microwave and one person servings. The recipes are easy to follow and always come out delicious.
Watch for a spring release date and happy cooking.
