I have one of these books from when it first came out, bought this one for my daughter to use. Very practical recipes, each one has variations that make it a completely "new" recipe as well as making it easier to find something to make for dinner with what you have on hand. The "Main Dish Spoonbread" is my family's favorite. It is a wonderful recipe to stretch that last chunk of ham into another meal - without looking like you are trying to use up scraps. (the variations are also for sausage or bacon, it would also work with corned beef or spam). There are lots of great ideas in here, a good practical cookbook to have on your shelf.
Yes, cheese soup as a base for many sweets! I will be brave enough to try one, eventually. It does, with 19,000 recipes have to have something for everyone. I'm glad I got it because there are numerous things I will try. I like Campbell's soups and using them as basic sauces is a real time saver. The recipes are set up in an interesting fashion, too. There is a basic recipe with a chart beneath with multiple substitutions for components of the recipe. Switch around to your own taste.
I have had this book for many, many years and love the flexibility of the mix and match approach. When pressed for a quick and easy meal and no time to shop, I use this book and can always find a combination of soup, vegetable and meat that I have on hand and can make into something good to eat. It is a life saver over and over. I bought this as a gift for a friend who recently married and got several very picky-eater stepchildren as "part of the package". She loves this book and the easy, quick recipes that at least most of the kids will eat. If you can find a copy, it is a wonderful book.
