Overall this book is a fantastic guide, and I recommend it to experienced cooks and beginners alike.
The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, 16th edition, has headed back towards more mainstream recipes than it's predecessor which ventured off to some of the more exotic recipes. I like the 16th edition as every cook needs to have a good cookbook filled with basic (foundation) recipes you can depend on for daily cooking.
Some of the recipes you will find in this cookbook include:
All-American Cheeseburger Soup
Beer Can Chicken
Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken
Baked Fish with Variations (A Make It Mine recipe)
Oven-Baked Pork Chops (8 to Try recipe)
Mashed Potatoes (A Cook's Secrets recipe)
Fruit Coffee Cake
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Maple, Apple and Cheddar Pie
The Make It Mine recipes take a key ingredient and suggest variations using the key ingredient.
The 8 to Try offers another key recipe with 8 variations using the key ingredient.
The Cook's Secret's recipes offer key tips and color photos showing how to prepare the recipe for maximum flavor.
The cookbook comes already organized and ready-to-go. Some notebook style cookbooks do not do this and you have to figure out how to insert the binder tabs and pages inside the cookbook. Fortunately the BH&G cookbook comes good-to-go.
My only critique of this cookbook is the choice of print color for the recipe titles and recipe highlights. My aging eyes have difficulty reading red ink on a white page. A better choice of print color would have been black or dark blue.
This is a fine cookbook for the novice cook as it will teach the basics without being boring.
