I have only tried a couple of things in the cookbook, but 2 out of 3 of them didn't turn out right. I'm not sure that it's the cookbooks fault - certainly it could be mine, but I HAVE cooked before... Anyway, I don't know if some of the recipes had typos or not. Also, I tried the lemon muffins with the glaze and it turns out they look nothing like the pictures. And the glaze that goes on them looked like frosting in the pictures, but the instructions don't make a frosting, but instead a glaze. I noticed someone else comment on the "stock pics" that were inserted instead of actual pictures of finished dishes. I guess that makes sense why the muffins didn't turn out like the picture... but that seems a bit misleading. (and disappointing!)

I wouldn't recommend this book. It's just as easy to look up a recipe online considering none of the recipes are the authors original recipes/interpretations. At least online you can read people comments so if there is a typo you can correct the mistake before you make it.

I gave it 2 stars because there's a lot I haven't tried and their MUST be something in there!

I was excited to see this cookbook at Costco, noticed others purchasing it and decided to check it out myself. Leafing through it, I was disappointed to find that the authors did not prepare and shoot photos of the actual finished recipes, but instead, filled the cookbook with inexpensive stock photography of pretty food that was more or less similar. For me, being the visual person that I am, this was unacceptable. A glossy, full-color cookbook full of new recipes must show the finished products or it may as well be printed on a stack of 3x5 cards or in a cheaply-bound, black and white 'traditional' ward cookbook.
Please note that I have not tried any of the recipes because I DID NOT BUY THE BOOK because there were no actual photos of the finished recipes. Hopefully the revised edition will show the actual finished recipes. Then I will be able to decide if they look yummy enough to buy the book and prepare them.

I have made three recipes from this book and none of them have worked out. It could have been me, but I have cooked successfully before, and seriously all three were just bad. I made homemade tootsie rolls and they tasted gross and ended up looking like a giant turd, not impressive. There was this chocolate cake from Germany and it ended up a rock hard lump in the garbage. Then there were the brown sugar cookies. The cookies were okay, but the frosting was like concrete.

I just keep making things from this book thinking that something will eventually work and it becomes more hilarious every time I make something and it is just terrible. I don't know if it's typos or what because I have followed the recipes exactly and it is just shocking how every recipe totally doesn't work.

Very disappointed in the recipes. Most of them I would not even consider making. I expected to find user friendly, old loved recipes by Ward members but not so.

Worldwide Ward Cookbook by Deanna Buxton

I ordered this cookbook for our SIL for Christmas this year, as he loves to cook and collect cookbooks and I ordered it through Amazon and it came in the mail today. I spent a couple of hours going through this most amazing, wonderful cookbook. I loved everything about this book, especially the colorfulpictures, the designs on each page, the little stories behind the recipes, a few photos of the people who submitted some of the recipes to make the book more personal. This is the first of a few more cookbooks from Deanna. She just came out with the Christmas Worldwide Cookbook and hear there's a Mother's Day Cookbook soon to come out. Another added plus to these cookbooks, is they are spiral-bound, so you lay them flat.
Some of the different, moth-watering recipes are: Funeral Pototoes, Never Enough Guacamole, Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips, Gingerbread Pancakes, Navajo Fry Bread, Banana Applesauce Bread, Shrimp Tacos, Irish Pasties, Peruvian Stir-Fry, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Southern Sweet Potato Casserole, Iraqi Rice, Taco Soup, Better-Than-A-Flue-Shot-Soup, Tortellini Salad, Cookie Salad, Orange Sherbet Jell-O, Fruit Soup, Peanut Butter Popcorn, Perusian Flan, Norwegian Porridge, Jewish Apple Cake, Whole Wheat Angel Food Cake and Pumpkin Fudge. There is one small section for our Prophet's recipes that is way cool. This would be the perfect gift to give at Christmas. The only minor problem I could see was the blue font for the submitters info was a tad bit hard to read.

I wanted so much to like this cookbook. My daughter saw it in the store and wanted to get it for her mom for Christmas, so we did. I turns out that the publishing company was too lazy to (1) test the recipes, and (2) take photos of the actual food.

Problem 1: The recipes don't turn out. We tried a chocolate cake that was supposedly from Germany. There is no way this cake passed a quality test. The cake was like a rock; it was completely inedible. I had to scrape it out of the pan with a butter knife because it practically broke my pancake turner. Not an auspicious beginning. (This wasn't just us; other commenters have said the same about this cake.)

Problem 2: The photos in the book are all stock photography! The pictures look great, but have nothing in common with the recipes on the facing pages except general category of food. My daughter fell in love with the book because of the pictures. She poured over the book looking at the pictures trying to decide what she wanted to make with her mom. It was a huge disappointment for her to learn that the pictures aren't actually of the items in the cookbook. It was a cheap way out and the publisher should be absolutely ashamed for taking the cheap shortcut on a cookbook.

I see both of these as issues with the publisher, and I'll never buy another cookbook from Covenant again. It was a terrible Christmas gift, and a waste of the paper it is printed on. (And I'm not one to write scathing reviews--check my history; I really hated this book that much.)
