- Tips, explanations, and pictures for each technique and food type so you can learn *how* to cook.
- Delicious food that covers the range of American cooking and popular ethnic cuisine.
- Recipes require few ingredients, with nothing unnecessary or unusual. The ingredients are things you can easily get. Seasonings are things that you will use again and will help build your pantry- nothing random you will only use once. These are my pet peeves of other cookbooks- haven't found another that doesn't have at least one of these issues.
- Few and simple steps. No crazy gourmet tricks that you as a beginner or normal person just trying to make dinner don't need and will just make cooking a long chore.
- Cooking times are listed, and there are lots of things in the 30 minute range.
- Lots of photos, fun to flip through and get ideas.
- Kind of healthy and light, but not insisting upon it. Lots of veggies, no excessive oils, etc. Nutrition info is listed, surprisingly low calorie.
- Taste level: it lands somewhere between Martha Stewart and Rachel Ray- it's neither fancy nor tacky. It's kind of the Target of cookbooks- everyone from middle America to cities would like it, accessible and egalitarian, but still kind of chic. And affordable in that you won't go broke buying random stuff you'll only use for one recipe.
- If there is one cookbook everyone in America should own, this is it. Kids with a decent palette would eat probably everything in here, and there's a lot of stuff even picky kids would eat. Don't worry, though, this isn't cheesy or dumbed-down.Read more ›
Anything that allows me and my daughter to read, comprehend, and execute as fine a meal as we did is just Superb!
Earlier in my life, I was a Chef at a high dollar restaurant serving mostly beef, so I was largely acquainted with the techniques associated with preparing most meats (and agree with the techniques used here), but I have never been especially knowledgeable about baking (and some other things). This book made it easy to learn the exact steps involved along the way to making every dish contained herein. I was especially enthused with the photographs taken at major preparation steps and decision points. This let me get it right the first time without having a recipe that was almost, but not quite, perfect.
Any level of cook from very beginner to advanced will love this book. There are dishes ranging from simple to complex (biased toward the simple on average) but all the ones I have made have worked well and tasted great. No kitchen should be without this book!
There is no other book needed for the new cook. This has all the information, hundreds of photographs with step by step directions. Any new cook would be happy with this purchase. It's a staple of the cook's library.
The recipe on the Anise Wafers was the easiest and best presentation that I've ever seen. This is all from scratch and so you know it's healthy without MSG and other preservatives.
Definitely a wedding gift.

I bought whatever edition back in 1985. Still use it though it's held together by duck tape now. I have no bad experiences with these recipes. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
