I Hate to Housekeep Book by Peg Bracken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I used to own both Peg's books - but over the years I've "lost" both. Like Peg, I hate the kitchen, so I found her quick n easy recipes handy.
I've just bought this title again - because worse than cooking I hate cleaning silverware, and Bracken's book has a simple method of cleaning silverware by dipping it into a solution boiling on the stove for a few minutes then rinsing and drying. As I live in the sulphur city of Rotorua (NZ) where cleaned silver is tarnished again within a couple of weeks, I Have to have this book again.

Both her books will make you laugh - "old-fashioned" though her content may be, some methods are almost modern and "green", relying on household ingredients rather than chemicals to make cleaning products. Peg Bracken lived from February 25, 1918 – October 20, 2007, and her books have been reprinted. They are available at amazon.com, and as hard copy or kobi format.
