One Of The Best Cookbooks I've Bought.,
This review is from: The Good Housekeeping Cookbook: 1,275 Recipes from America's Favorite Test Kitchen (Good Housekeeping Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever owned. I love the way it is laid out, the fantastic color photographs, the layout of the recipe, and the wonderful recipe's I have tried so far. The only problem is this book of 752 pages and over 1200 recipes is HEAVY. The book also has much helpful information on varies areas of cooking and food. This cookbook is very complete, separated into food sections, such fruits, vegetables, chicken, breads, Mexican, etc. There are also "Tips" throughout the book that are helpful and save time for the cook.
This is not a "Chef" cookbook but a great back-to-basics cookbook with recipes that take ingredients that most keep in their kitchen. I am so tired of getting cookbooks that have so many ODD meals that my family really doesn't want with ingredients that are hard to find in many areas.
This book surpassed my expectation which don't happen often. I cannot stress how great this book is. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and it would make a great wedding gift.

Thank you for this review. I too am tired of cookbooks with exotic recipes, kale and fennel salad Or tofu lentil stew. I want an American middle of the road cookbook with standard recipes. One cookbook I ordered was called " comfort food" and had the strangest recipes like Aztec barley quinoa. All these things might be good but my family won't touch it and it ain't comfort food.It will be a relief to find a cookbook that isn't trying to be something else. I bought the book based on your review.
