Unfortunately, it's not. 97% of the recipes in this book have been submitted by home cooks. The cover, which I did NOT see when I pre-ordered, features a, "From Home Cooks Like You," sticker icon that makes this clear.
The remaining 3%, a total of 8 recipes, are labeled as coming from "Taste of Home Test Kitchen." These include:
Almond-Coconut Lemon Bars, p. 91
Raspberry Pie Squares, p. 92
Pear-Apple Pie Bars, p. 95
Chocolate Swirled Bars, p. 196
Strawberry Granola Squares, p. 196
Chewy Chocolate-Cherry Bars, p. 212
Blondie Sundaes, p. 230
Banana Split Brownie Cake, p. 245
Had I known that 97% of the recipes in this book had been submitted by home cooks beforehand, I would've never ordered this book.
That's not because there's anything wrong with that, I just assumed that this would be a compilation of recipes from the Taste of Home Test Kitchen, not home cooks.
There are a few good ideas in this book, but: Nothing really stands out, and a lot of the recipes feature store-bought ingredients (like boxed brownie/cake mixes, canned pie fillings, refrigerated cookie dough, etc.)—which I don't use since I cook from scratch.
I don't regret buying it, though, it just wasn't what I expected (which is completely my fault).
