"One reason why the books are so popular is that they aren't intended for folks who dabble in cooking as a hobby or a whim. . . . 'The audience that I have in mind is those who have to cook every day of the week,' says Good."
--Los Angeles Times, January 7, 2009

"Good's books have sold more in the United States than the combined works of popular Food Network hosts Ina Garten, Giada De Laurentiis, and Jamie Oliver."

"'One of the losses in our lives is that it's so hard to sit down at the dinner table, night after night, and have parents and children eating together,' says Phyllis Pellman Good. . . . 'With the slow cooker, you can prepare food early and bring everyone together at the table,' she says. 'It helps immensely.'"
