We expected to receive a good book from this publisher but got a really great book!
Anyways, here are the recipes I've made so far from this book: black bean burgers, chocolate pots de crème (great), tiramisú, eggplant casserole, white spinach lasagna (note: I had to read the instructions more than twice on this one and then they expect you to bake the lasagnas in mini loaf pans. I didn't feel like cutting up all the noodles to fit the pans so I baked it on a regular loaf pan instead and it came out just fine. It feeds more than 2 unless you're really hungry), zucchini/tomato/ricotta tarts (great), orecchiette with broccoli rabe and beans, pan-roasted chickpeas with garlic/parsley paired with tomato/scallion/lemon couscous. You'll be in for a treat every time you try a recipe from this cookbook!
I have tried a few of the recipes and so far they have been perfect! I cannot believe how great the tastes have been, and the food actually looks like the picture. There are not a lot of finish-product pictures, but of those that I have tried, the pictures matched. There are pictures of helpful hints and tips that are valuable, even to an old-timer like myself.
The ingredients seem to be readily available at my local market, and I am even trying a few new items that I have never cooked before. Tonight I made the White Spinach Lasagna that was, well...Perfect! My husband ate every single bite and said, "mmmmm" many times during the meal. The Classic Chicken Pot Pie was a hit last night too. This is now my favorite cookbook of all of the ones filling my bookshelf.

Good meals and easy to follow with explanations to help teach reasons for their cooking methods which can be carried over to other recipes.Published on January 31, 2014 by Brad Wolverton
Every recipe in here is a winner! America's Test Kitchen can do no wrong. If there was any negative critique it would be only that their vegetarian section is very uninspired, but... Read morePublished on June 10, 2013 by Dina L. Romano
