You can always make adjustments to the recipes to your liking, and you can experiment on your own to create new recipes that you and your family will enjoy. Like all recipes, I think they are a guide. It starts off as a guide to teach you a method to reach a goal. After that, it is up to you and your imagination. Not everyone will like things the same way, so go for it and experiment. You will more than likely find your own new recipes that for you and your family may be better than what you have in the book.
The only thing I do not like about this book is the construction,. If it where a regular spine paperback book I would be okay with it. If it were a hardcover book, it would be wonderful. But the spiral bound books don't impress me. I know the contents are worth more than the construction of the book. But when you are buying something and paying for it, you would like it to be a nice solid constructed book physically. Spiral bound gives it an old feel to the cookbook, and kinda makes the cookbook feel cheap. If it is available in paperback or hardcover, it is a nice find.
But, the contents are well worth it. If you can look past the construction of the book, you will be happy with what you get inside.
I recommend this mochi recipe book for it's contents.
There is a companion book from the same author. I recommend that book as well. It is called Taste & Flavors of Mochi.
