Good book if you live in the states. As the food prices are way too off to make these recipes for $5 in Canada. ( .20 cents for bbq sauce)
I didn't find anything new recipe-wise in this book, but did have a chuckle at the writes food price breakdown.
If your starting out on your own this may be a good recipe book for you as the meals are cheaper - not $5 though - and there are lots of them in the book.
Another let down from this book - no pictures of the final product.

Lots of good recipes, although there are many of them that couldn't be made for $5 here in Canada. $10 maybe, but not $5.
