Definitely worth the few extra bucks for the 3-ring binder version so it lays flat while using it.

The 15th edition is not as friendly, easy to read, or informative as the 14th edition. The previous edition had more complete information, friendlier and more "comfort food recipes, and the print did not fade into the photo backgrounds as this edition does. Some of the basics (Macaroni Salad, German Potato Salad, Lollipops,Divinity, etc.) were replaced by more global concoctions (Ginger-spiced Cucumbers, Beet and Apple Salad, Curried Wild Rice Salad, etc.). I will miss the 14th edition and am sad to have lost the small tidbits of information provided throughout each section.

Recently I upgraded from the 1950's copy to this--I was a little worried that it would be a "book of Cilantro" so to speak, with everything new and nothing that I've come to know as B&H Cookbook style. Not the case! The book contains a mix of my old standby recipes, along with a ton of new ones. I really like the side-by-side recipe suggestions--one recipe that uses the leftovers from a different recipe.

For those who cook often, there's a hearty smattering of scratch recipes. For those who cook rarely (or those who have a cupboard full of random things), there are also a lot of recipes that use pre-made or canned ingredients.

Overall, very happy with this book.

It would be fantastic, if they would have left IN the good stuff and left OUT the over-processed ingredients. I have an early 90's version of this book my mother gave me, and it has lots of great recipes, PRESSURE canning instructions in detail, and very few "packaged" mentions aside from some noodles and canned goods like beans. Since these are modern times and home cooking is on the rise, I thought this version would be more updated, less condensed-soup casseroles and more back-to-basics cooking. Boy was I wrong! Every recipe I have tried so far, while good, had to be converted from "packaged this", "canned this", and "purchased that". Why do they have to tell you to used packaged, purchased stuff? Is "packaged spinach" necessary? It is far cheaper if you buy it in a bunch without the plastic wrapper! It seemed to be PUSHING processed plastic wrapped stuff on the reader, instead of encouraging wholesome natural food. I had hoped to find updated rules on pressure canning, as my old edition had charts and details that were current on the topic 20 years ago, but no... they barely even mention pressure canning is possible! It skims over canning fruits, and mostly focuses on canning pectin jellies. I like the recipe ideas, and the converted Falafel recipe was heavenly, but the emphasis on processed food has turned me off from buying an update when this wears out. BH&G, I am VERY disappointed. I wasn't expecting a "whole food" cookbook, but I was at least expecting much less processed stuff. After all, I bought a Cookbook, a book on how to cook, not a Throw-a-bunch-of-bags-and-cans-together-and-heat-it-up book!

Before you think this reviewer is an old fashioned cranky grandma, let me tell you about me.

First of all, I had older edition and it was stolen! The paper stock is very flimsy in this edition! The Page content has been shrunken to the point of having to wear Glasses!! Can you imagine having to bend over to read recipes with glasses on and hands with flour or other mixing items in your Hands. The Print size is absurd!!! I'll Keep this Cook Book As a reminder of the Bad choice I made! In addition to wearing Glasses have a good magnifying glass at hand!! Publishing Company did a Disservice to the name of Better Homes and Garden Cook Book(s)!!

I needed to replace my old BH&G cookbook (1st edition) as the person who gave it to me years ago thoughtfully removed the whole section on pork recipes. So I thought, replace it and get a nice pork cooking guide and we're good to go. Wrong. The editors need to understand that not all pork roasts are smoked (ie, ham) - we have raised pigs for a few years, and most of our pork is fresh, not smoked, so the cooking times would be vastly different. Very disappointed. Also, I have used the apple pie recipe for many years, so I looked it up - surprise, surprise, no recipe. Just a generic "fruit pies" guideline chart. What about spices, etc?

And I do agree with some other reviewers - way too much processed ingredients used in recipes, way too much convenience cooking focus instead of really really basic! Get back to the basics! I will look for another Basic Cookbook with better cooking guidelines and recipes.

I always get compliments on my cooking when I cook one of these recipes! The pages are very thin though, and I have to be very careful not to rip the pages off the 3-ring binder. I should probably get a book stand so the pages don't get too dirty. Otherwise, the book is great. It arrived in perfect condition. I would definitely order from Amazon again. I love the smiley boxes! :)

My mom, grandmother and aunt have used this book for decades, so I bought one for myself and just love it! It has everything you need, it is the perfect cookbook for the first timer. I love the tips in the front of what kind of knife to use for xxx, it has a conversion guide too which is helpful. All in all this is probably the perfect book for someone just starting out as it has tips of how to stock your kitchen tools.
