About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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 recipes are like those your grandmother used to cook. I have made a few recipes so far and they were simple to make and I had many of the ingredients in my pantry.
I love the additional tips and "how to" sections.
If you had to own just one cookbook the Farmer's Almanac Everyday Cookbook is THE cookbook to have.
