Format: Paperback
The trouble with a lot of Thanksgiving cookbooks is that they throw so many new and quite exotic dishes at the reader. I think most people still prefer their Thanksgiving with all of the traditional dishes.

Betty Crocker's book does just that while still giving you some new things to try, without making them too intimidating for the novice cook. Add to that the best sections of the book may be the sections on planning your dinner from shopping to all the make-aheads to getting the turkey ready for the oven.

You'll find all of the great traditional fare in this book with straight forward and easy to follow recipes no matter what the size of your gathering.

If your a traditionalist like me, then this is the book for you.

Lots of good recipes especially for someone attempting to fix their first thanksgiving meal. Most are easy to make, lots of both traditional and updated holiday recipes. The instructions are easy to follow. Not so many recipes to choose from but makes it easier to plan a meal.

I may have to get this cookbook for my sister in law who has been married probably 30 years or so and still has not cooked a turkey. She is absolutely scared to death. :-) I found the recipes to be good and easy for a beginner especially. I just don't want to hurt her feelings so I am tiptoeing around the suggestion. :-)

From simple to experienced, this book does it all. With young cooks in the family, this book was a way to make them feel like they were as experienced as those that have prepared the traditional meal for years.

It is simple to read with big pictures, easy instructions, so many recipes & with pages that will not be ruined with the occasional spill.

I purchased this book before I hosted my first Thanksgiving and I still use it as a reference. It has a good combination of traditional and modern dinners. The book also offers ideas on how to mix ideas. The time saver tips are helpful, and the different options on cooking a turkey are fun. Really important is the instructions are easy to fallow.
