If you want to cook and bake like your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother did than you will want this book. I doubt the previous reviewer even made any of the recipes. My family has always used this book and has turned out he best pies and baked beans you could imagine. This is a famous cookbook.
Contains over 400 recipes. This is my go-to cookbook. I love it because I can read several recipes and choose ingredients from among them. Example, the sweet potatoes, I don't add milk or orange juice, nor salt or butter, but do add nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and candied ginger plus vanilla and Stroh rum for the moisture. My family loves it.
