Format: Hardcover
Ordinarily, I wouldn't have bought this book. However, I received The Good Housekeeping Cookbook as a premium for joining a club, so I've examined it with an eye to where it'll fit into my collection.

Everybody needs one or two general cookbooks. Even if you're a devoted foodie and you love to cook, at some point you have a hankering for a basic middle-America comfort food dish, maybe an old favorite from your childhood. I discovered this years ago, when I realized that, despite an impressive collection, I didn't have a single recipe for tuna fish casserole.

At first glance, the Good Housekeeping Cookbook looks like a candidate for the job. It has 1,500 recipes, frequent photographs of the finishd dish, and 24 chapters that range from meat to quick breads to canning and freezing. In an effort to "update" the 1950s-style recipes to modern tastes, you'll find recipes for jerk chicken, Thai beef with basil, and tofu egg salad. If you're the sort of person who only wants to own one cookbook, the sheer number of options will keep you quite happy. Even though it doesn't have a tuna noodle casserole after all.

Unfortunately, those recipes are largely disappointing.

Oh, they'll work. You'll definitely be able to make something edible for dinner, using this book. It just won't be awesome. It won't be authentic, either, but I don't think the typical buyer for this book is looking for that. As long as it tastes good, that's fine.

There are two major problems with this cookbook. One is a pretence of healthy cooking, which basically means a fawning obsequience to the notion of fat-is-bad. For instance, a recipe for cooking a fresh ham has you take off all the skin; the result is sure to be a dried-out lump of meat.

If you already have the 2001 All New Good Housekeeping Cook Book, save your money - this is a reprinting with a different cover and slightly heavier paper. Page for page, exactly the same.
The 2001 book was excellent, though, and if you don't already own it this would make a great addition to your cookbook library.
