I loved everything about this cookbook!
Barb Meisner
Also, if you're a beginning cook you probably want to stay away from this one anyway because it doesn't have a lot of the basic recipes.
Lee Walker
This cookbook has many favorite recipes with a twist to the ingredients.

I wish I could give 4 1/2 stars, but just couldn't work up to 5...but this will make a perfect gift for those who love old fashioned comfort food; or as a gift to yourself. Many recipes are a bit beyond diner fare, but still simple enough for beginning cooks.
There are more than 400 recipes, not the 180 stated in the write-up. The book contains hints on many pages, such as to clean a pot with marks fill with water and add cream of tarter and bring to a boil, something my grandmother taught me, but doesn't seem to be well known today. There is a reference section including `how long will it keep' and `effects of freezing'.
Chapters include breakfast, appetizers, soups, salads, pasta, side dishes, poultry, meat, seafood, pasta, potatoes, breads, desserts, canning and preserving, barbecues. Comments and blue ribbon ratings are given.
If you are looking for a good solid old fashioned cookbook, something that would have your grandma's recipe for snow pudding or pioneer stew, but also contains braised lamb with gremolata or grilled salmon with maple mustard glaze, then this is the one for you. Just also be aware that the format is smaller than the normal 8X10, but believe me my eyesight isn't what it used to be and the pages are so clean and uncluttered I didn't have trouble reading the print.

THE OLD FARMER'S
EVERYDAY COOKBOOK ALMANAC:
A Guarantee of Goodness Everyday!

A review by Marty Martindale

From the press which publishes Yankee Magazine and the editors of the Farmer's Almanac, this book is a collection of 400 recipes, solid recipes and a general, all'round basic cookbook for anyone. Many of the recipes are winners of recent Old Farmer's Almanac reader recipe contests. The eds promise "each and every recipe comes with the promise expectations will be met - no exceeded!" The book also carries a lot of cooking hints and tips.

Special Sections in the book pertain to Backyard Barbecues and Family Favorites. Here is a quick look at some interesting recipes from the book:

NUT HASH
Combine nut meats, cooking oil, onion, pears, naval oranges, celery, bell peppers and cardamom

SPINACH AND PASTA SOUP
Turkey sausage, onion, garlic, tomatoes, broth, bow-tie pasta, fresh spinach and a can of cannelli beans

PECAN AND PORK SALAD
Boston lettuce, pecan halves, butter, paprika, pork tenderloin, oregano and a vinaigrette dressing

CREAMY MUSHROOM BAKE
White mushrooms, butter, nutmeg, heavy cream, French break and Swiss cheese

EGGPLANT TOMATO CASSEROLE
Eggplant, olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, sugar, bread crumbs and Cheddar cheese

JAMAICAN PINEAPPLE ORANGE CHICKEN
Fryer chicken, flour, chili powder, vegetable oil, orange juice, raisins, dark rum, cinnamon, cloves and crushed pineapple

DARTMOOR FIDGET PIE
Lean bacon, potatoes, onions, green apples, brown sugar, egg white and pie crust

LAMB CHOPS WITH MINT PESTO
Mint leaves, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, parsley, pine nuts, garlic, basil leaves and seasoning.

I have slowly been collecting cookbooks. I am always on the look-out for cookbooks that I can easily follow without a lot of complicated ingredients. I have mostly made the desserts including the carrot cake, banana sour cream bread and both have been a huge hit. I will continue to collect cookbooks mostly to read and dream of trying the complicated recipes hoping for perfection but this one I will use on a regular basis.

This cookbook has many favorite recipes with a twist to the ingredients. I like to try new recipes and old ones with different ingredients added.

Gave this to my sister who lives in Northern WI. She loves it, uses it at least 1x per week. She states she has never made something out of this cookbook that she wouldn't make a second time.
