3.0 out of 5 stars This is more of a sampler, with 7 recipes in all November 16, 2011

Note: I have edited my review somewhat, as the author/publisher of the cookbook has updated the preview, so it now shows the actual Thanksgiving mini-cook-book you will get, instead of the full-size one that was previously pictured. Thank you, Hiya, for updating the photo - I think that makes a difference in people's expectations. Glad to know someone "was listening"

I was pretty excited when I saw this up for free for Kindle, as I have recently started using parchment paper for my baking (LOVE it! Breads, buns, cookies, bars, all work GREAT with parchment paper and there is almost no clean-up!)

This book seems to be a kind of "sampler" version of the full-size cook by the same author, here: The Parchment Paper Cookbook: 180 Healthy, Fast, Delicious Dishes!. It includes 7 recipes in all (see list below). Most seem to lean towards the "gourmet" type dishes, more than the basic, somewhat simple "Old-fashioned" Thanksgiving dishes that are more traditional.

The info on folding parchment paper and making little packets with it, to use for cooking even "wet" dishes is very helpful and a great technique that I will try with some of my own recipes, as I love the no-mess, minimal clean-up that you have when you cook with parchment paper.

I think my kids (even though they're teen-agers!) might enjoy getting their own little "packet" of food, just for something a little different, and kind of fun - almost like a camping trip/cook-out, but am fairly sure that they (and myself and husband as well) wouldn't be so crazy about most of the recipes (except for, perhaps, the Rustic Apple Tart and Easy Indian Corn Pudding.

1.0 out of 5 stars Free is a good thing November 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this Kindle recipe book when it was offered for free. Thank goodness I didn't pay even the nominal 99 cents --- but since this offering appears to be a teaser for "The Parchment Paper Cookbook" with 180 recipes, it will save me the cost of THAT book ($9.87 for the Kindle version on today's amazon dot com)

There are seven recipes in this free offering . . . 1 appetizer, 1 turkey, 4 side dishes, and 1 dessert. However, what the author offers in this book is a way for cooks to look outside of how they may normally do a recipe and incorporate parchment paper. While I think that's a great idea, it is perhaps worthy of a blog entry, I'm not sure that it needs a "cookbook" --- especially when the only difference between these recipes and something one might find in one of the many wonderful foodie/cooking blogs is "place parchment paper on a baking sheet" or "cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper". Also, I think there should be a reference back to the instructions in the front of the book for the recipes that end with "fold the parchment and bake for xx minutes" --- otherwise one is left wondering "fold how?"

The recipes look interesting, although in the "sweet potatoes gone light" the author calls them "sweet potatoes" in both the title and the ingredients list, but then refers to them as "yams" in the instructions. Many cooks WILL know that "sweet potatoes" and "yams" are interchangeable in recipes, but this could be confusing to a novice cook.

Again, this book was free, so it may (or may not) be worth the download . . . I think that it will probably go to my archives and not reside on my Kindle --- and in the meantime, I think I'll head over to David Lebovitz, the Bitten Word, Annie's Eats or one of the many other food blogs that I have bookmarked for some ideas. I did a quick google before posting this review, and find that the author does have a blog . . . you may want to check it out at nopotcooking dot com.

3.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't what I was expecting August 8, 2013

It could have been better but what can you expect for something that is free. I haven't tried any of the recipes because none of them appealed to me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Modern vs. Traditional recipes April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded the book for my Kindle I-Pad Version.
At first glance, and then make the first general reading, I must say that recipes have been published "modern" for the day of thanksgiving, and this has advantages and disadvantages, depending on the audience that consumes it. Muchoas I have friends who prefer traditional meals for these dates, but surely there will be people who like to change some traditions. The time and sales to determine where the balance is tilted.

They develop some useful techniques. For example, the way it explains the use of baking parchment paper (parchment paper).

It would be nice a further description. Not because some authors still do not explain the content of the books they publish.

Let's clear we want to know what you are buying before you pay.

Recipes that my children will never eat:
Appetizers Spinach Artichoke Pie
Turkey with tarragon, rosemary and cranberries
Brussels sprouts with pumpkin seed oil and walnuts
Roasted carrots, parsnips, and Rutabaga with Maple Syrup
Sweet Lite Gone
Rustic Apple Tart
Indian Corn Pudding easy

Some recipes may be useful, but the content and layout of the book, description, and other elements can be greatly improved.
Lots of text and few pictures.
