This is a very good book and has lots of great recipes in it.
Glenda F. Carr
I hate to say it, but people really should read and use a cookbook before they review it.

I recently acquired a copy of this book while visiting a used bookstore.

This is an excellent cookbook full of easy, relatively quick recipes. You won't have to go searching for strange-sounding, obscure ingredients, either. These are not gourmet dishes; they are delicious, every-day recipes which will become favorites around your house.

Usually I cook recipes much more complicated than the ones in this book, but these recipes are all great. They are tasty and the vast majority are quick and easy to prepare. I have given this book to many people as a gift and they all love it. A few friends got rid of all their falling apart pieces of paper that contained these recipes. Most people will recognize a lot of the recipes because they are classic ones that many Americans grew up on such as Campbell's Green Bean Bake, Red Velvet Cake, Party Cheese Balls, California Dip and so on. All these classic recipes are found in this one book which you will refer to again and again.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. My husband and I love the Hunt's meatballs and spaghetti recipe as our very favorite sauce, and it only takes 20 minutes! It's hard to believe that such a simple sauce tastes better than anything we've found in a jar. Many other recipes have turned out great too.
This book would make an excellent gift for someone, and it's also very reasonably priced for a hardcover book.

Because these recipes represented the company (since they were, after all, on the label) they had to taste good and not be too overwhelming to attempt. The companies who developed and printed the recipes wanted readers to _make_ the food so that they would be using their products.

You can save money with many of these scratch recipes (frosting, spaghetti sauce, and more), and every one of them that we've tried has been one we liked. And you don't have to use the brand-name product, of course. They turn out just as well with whatever was on sale. But shhhhhh, don't tell the manufacturers I said that.

Easy, tasty, and they'll save you money. I'm not sure what the downside is to this cookbook. It's a keeper.

How many times did you look for that small piece of paper where you have a favorite recipe and you didn't find it? Or maybe you have search for a recipe of that dish your mother use to prepare.

This book is a must have reference where you will find the all-time favorite recipes of every family member, well organized, and in an elegant, resistant format that will win stand the everyday use.

Every one of the popular recipes in the book are fast an easy to prepare, with detailed instructions from America's Best Food Manufacturers.

If you were felling nostalgic about something you use to prepare, there is a probability that you will find the cure here.

This book was given to me by one of my aunts for Christmas about 6 years ago. I love it. It was my first cook book and I found the recipes easy to make, had most of the ingredients on hand and have loved everything that I have made with it. When I left home I had to leave the original book behind because my family did not want to give it up. I have since bought a new one and use it frequently.

Last Christmas I got this cookbook as a present from my mom. She saw it, knew it was my first year on my own, and that I was getting sick of spaghetti and ramen.

I read through it many, many times and wanted to try out the recipes. Some of them were terribly dated, calling for ingredients that went out of style with my grandma's generation. However, many of them are indeed timeless, and looked like fun to make.

Before this book was (sadly) stolen from me, I had the chance to make the tomato sour cream casserole(with Doritos), the fruit sherbet, the fruit juice whip, the red velvet cake, and fried green tomatoes. Every recipe came out wonderfully, even without pictures to refer to. My personal favourite was the sherbet recipe, and I have made it with nearly every fruit I can get my hands on.

One of these days I'll get myself a new copy of this book, and try out some of the "real" recipes.
