The I Hate To Cook Book


The New York Times reports the death of Peg Bracken – she is hardly a household name today but 47 years ago she made waves by publishing The I Hate to Cook Book.

Ms. Bracken’s cookbook, with illustrations by Hilary Knight, quickly became a staple of suburban homes. Published in various editions over the years, it sold more than three million copies. Every baby boomer’s mother, or so it seemed, had one on the kitchen shelf, its pages stained with the makings of Stayabed Stew, Sole Survivor and Spinach Surprise
