This book would make an excellent gift for someone, and it's also very reasonably priced for a hardcover book.
You can save money with many of these scratch recipes (frosting, spaghetti sauce, and more), and every one of them that we've tried has been one we liked. And you don't have to use the brand-name product, of course. They turn out just as well with whatever was on sale. But shhhhhh, don't tell the manufacturers I said that.
Easy, tasty, and they'll save you money. I'm not sure what the downside is to this cookbook. It's a keeper.
The title of this work sort of says it all. This indeed is a collection of all those recipes you find on the back of boxes, cans, jars and such, published by the maker of the product found inside the container. Now logic would tell you that these companies would not print a horrid, difficult or bad tasting recipe and attach it to their product with a recommendation that you try it. No, no, no! These food companies are trying to sell you their product, over and over and over again. This is how they make their money. They desperately want to put their best foot forward. And I must say that they almost always do!
I doubt seriously if you attend a church dinner, organization or community potluck, family gathering, etc. that you will be able to go through the food line without running into at least one of the recipes featured in this work. Many of the dishes here have become so ingrained in our eating culture that the original source is completely lost, and indeed, many have gone into the realm of "old secret family recipes that have been pasted down generation after generation." Little do we know that Aunt Grace or Granny actually copped the dish from the back of a can or box years ago and passed it on as her own.
There is something is this work for just about every one; whether it be main dishes, desserts, appetizers, snacks, sauces, salads, soups, sandwiches, breads, or just "stuff." All of the directions are extremely simple to follow; so simple in fact, that this is a great book to present the young lad or lass that is off to college and away from home for the first time.Read more ›
