Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Drawing on the tastes and favorites of their fans, the editors of Taste of Home offer up a whopping 735 recipes highlighting Midwest, Northeast, South, Southwest, and Western regions of America. As in previous editions, comfort food dominates—Buffalo wings, Swedish meatballs, cherry pie—but there are also surprises, such as the grilled sweet potato and red pepper salad and a homemade barbecue sauce that incorporates a can of Dr. Pepper. Regional recipes such as a flavorful low country boil from the South, Chicago deep-dish pizza, Tex-Mex fajitas and green chili pork stew, do a fine job of representing their locale. The selection covers the culinary spectrum—there is everything from appetizers like caviar and cheese spreads to desserts like a delicious blackout cake and a bevy of classic cocktails. The majority of recipes are sourced from readers, which sometimes works to the book's detriment, such as when a recipe calls for a pork butt, onions, cabbage, and root vegetables tossed in a pot and boiled sans salt, pepper, or any seasonings. However, the editors make up for any amateur efforts via volume and variety. (Sept.)

This book is the ultimate cookbook that will not disappoint, and has become the elite of my cookbook collection. There is much more offered in this inspiring cookbook, than one can possibly imagine. For starters, there are Main Dishes, Sides & More, and Sweets. This cookbook offers delicious recipes from across the nation, with stunning, colorful photos of not only prepared meals, but also special places across the nation. We go on an exciting tour of flavor from the Northeast, as we select incredible recipes from different states. We can select BLUEBERRY and CRANBERRY DELIGHTS, SUB SANDWICHES, CLAMBAKES, and much more. Several recipes are simple to prepare, and provide cooking time, as well as the number of servings. We can choose MAINE LOBSTERS from New Jersey or HOT DOGS, and there are different tastes that will indeed satisfy everyone's cravings, such as PIZZA from New York. There are recipes for BLUECRAB from Maryland, ANTIPASTO SUB from New York, or BEEF STEW with Sesame SEED BISCUITS. In addition: there are recipes from famous restaurants, recipes for breakfast, and recipes for appetizers, as well as a variety of salad dressings. Included in this fantastic cookbook is: MUFFINS; DRINKS; DIPS; DINNERS; JAMS; DESSERTS, BREAD & ROLLS; CANDY, ICE CREAM; CAKES & PIES; COOKIES & More. As if that isn't enough, there are also recipes for Frosting, and a variety of Sweet Treats. I will be gifting this golden gem to family and friends for the holidays.I have selected thus far, BUTTERY SCALLOPS in rich, creamy sauce, which is a sensation. My daughter has selected the ANTIPASTO SUB from New York to prepare for Monday's dinner. An update: The ANTIPASTO SUBS were delicious, and I will be making them again.Read more ›

I love all the the Taste of Home cookbooks and magazines out there but I have to say this is probably one of my new favorites. Its nice to see the different recipes from all of the different regions of the United States. Some I had always wanted to know how to make and now I can!! If you have never tried a Taste of Home recipe, you don't know what you are missing out on. Most are so easy to follow and taste so good that you make them over and over. This will be no exception. Another thing I enjoy is that they include pictures with the recipes. I always like to be able to "compare" my outcome to what they have done. Definitely would recommend!!

I've been a big fan of Taste of Home's recipe books and magazines for many years now. This book was another great addition.

Probably the most important thing for me in a recipe book is the pictures. I want to see pictures of recipes before I give them a try. Reading names of recipes and the ingredients sometimes just doesn't cut it for me. I need the visuals. Luckily this book was typical of Taste of Home's books and it had a picture for almost all of the recipes.

This book has a good layout. It's just how I like it. Short, simple and easy to follow. Having the recipes divided up into sections based on different areas of the county was nice but I think I still prefer the typical books that are divided up by main course, sides, desserts, etc.

I'm a bit of a picky eat so I didn't find a ton of recipes that really caught my eye but I did find more than I though I would. That's saying something for me. There's quite a bit of variety in this book and I think most people will find quite a bit of new recipes to try.

I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it.

As a long time fan of taste of home, I was looking forward to reviewing this large cookbook. The book is separated first by region (Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, West), and then further separated within each region by main dishes, sides, and sweets. I enjoyed this grouping and feel it makes the cookbook more interesting than if it had simply been grouped by food type/entree. Furthermore, it has an extensive index that is categorized both by ingredient, and also by dish type (appetizer, beverage, etc.).

I must say I missed the stories from contributors that you see in their magazine, but I enjoyed the short tidbits TOH included about customs, festivals, etc. from various locations. The photography was well done with a picture being included of almost, but not every, recipe. There is no nutritional information included, should the exact analysis be important to you (it's not for me).

The recipes are varied in complexity, ranging from a super simple mayo and tomato sandwich to a complicated lobster stuffed beef wellington. There is literally something for every skill level or time commitment. There are also wild game recipes scattered throughout the cookbook which is a plus.

Growing up in the south (NC and FL), I must say I did not find the recipe collection representative or accurate at all for the main dishes of this region, relative to my own experiences. There is a very heavy focus on Cajun, Cuban, and whiskey based recipes. On the other hand, I found the Southwest region recipes to be spot on. Having lived in TX for about a decade, I recognized many of the recipes as local fare.

Overall, this book is a keeper. I found a few minor typos, though I reviewed an ARC edition.
