From Our Grandmothers' Kitchens (America's Test Kitchen) Hardcover-spiral – October 1, 2011
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The first one: "America's Best Lost Recipes" was very interesting, and had real old and very special, and different recipes.
Most of the recipes in this book are not really that old, or special, or even taste as good and special as they claim.
Here and there there is a pearl. You will have to carefully work your way through the book to fish these pearls.
There are few pearls in the pies, cakes, and cookies sections.
There are not enough pictures, so you don't know if your product is close to what you were suppose to get.
Is it worth it to buy the book? If you are an avid baker who likes to bake special cakes, cookies, and pies, that no body ate before, surprise your family, and guests with baked good that they will never see in the bakery they shop at, the answer is yes. The price is worth the few pearls that are in the book.
I think there is a mistake in the recipe of "Rose Franklin Cookies" p140. It says: "1 egg white", but then says: "beat the whites". It seems to me that one egg white is not enough for 2 cups nut? Anybody has the correct number of whites?
old fashioned updated recipes with interesting names like Tootie's Tortie're Pie and Rum Tum Tiddy .I made
the noodle pudding with raw noodles it was good and so easy . My aunt made something like it when I was 11 and
I never quiet figured out how she did it , I usually just cook without recipes ,not precooking the noodles helped
them not get watery and had more flavor and I added some vanilla and reduced the sugar, the raisins are sweet .
Whether they will try recipes, I don't know! I am a fan of Cooks Illustrated and this magazine is somehow connected. The recipes are less " intricate" for someone who likes more simple meals and come from the past and still are worth trying!
