From Publishers Weekly
In the tradition of the church or community cookbook, this comprehensive collection of convenient, everyday recipes comes from real American kitchens. An enormous five-ring binder encompasses 1,125 recipes with color photos, blank recipe cards, and handy pockets for notes and shopping lists. Also included is complete nutritional information for each recipe. While some of the dishes seem dated, such as creamy casseroles, cheese balls, and New England Boiled Dinner, there are some fresh takes on classic combinations, and even some global surprises. A reader from Oregon offers a recipe for Mongolian fondue, for instance, while another from Binghamton, N.Y., contributes a recipe for spiedis, or Italian kabobs. Shortcuts abound with readymade supermarket ingredients simplifying Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus and Crab Lasagna Roll-Ups. A section devoted to light offerings is a welcome counterpoint to the heartier foodstuffs that make up the bulk of this book.

These are recipes from readers of Taste of Home magazine. They are tested and taste great. The focus is on what folks like to eat NOW verses 20 years ago. What you should know is that this book assumes that you have basic cooking knowledge although an interested beginner would have little problem cooking from it. There is a great glossary at the FRONT of the book--exactly where a beginning cook needs it! But it is primarily recipes. While there are a few offerings, if you are into gourmet food, this is not the book for you. If you want family friendly meals or meals that fit your budget, then this is certainly a good book for the shelf. I've tried 5 recipes so far and they were tasty.
My only caveat with this book is the 5 ring binder. As much as I like it, my first book arrived, factory wrapped, but with rings that wouldn't match. Turning the pages was impossible. Amazon replaced my book immediately, but 5 years from now, if I drop the book and bend the rings, I might be out of luck since the holes don't fit a standard 3 ring. My point is, if things tend to fall around your house (I have helpers), the format is not the best. Still worth it to me, however. I actually prefer this book to the Betty Crocker one, which was my old standby.
Note: this review was originally placed under the wrong cookbook title.
The book arrived and now I want a copy of my own. And I've been cooking for over 60 years. I lust for this book.
It's a perfect combination of information for new cooks, mouth watering pictures, and yummy sounding recipes that the more experienced cook would like to try. And it does all this in the TOH special down-to-earth style. Not snooty and above the rest of us as some cookbooks tend to be.
I highly recommend this book for young folks starting out on their own. Whether in marriage, career, or some combination. A perfect first cookbook.
Taste of Home recipes have always been a plus in that they were always good food made from readily availble ingredients, yet the addition of easy to read charts and photos provide crucial how-to information that makes this an excellent book for a novice cook while the variety in recipes will offer plenty of new options to try out for an advanced cook.
I also liked that the book is sturdy and very well made, it is designed for endurance and extensive use.
As usual Taste of Home does not disapoint & this book is Highly recomended!
