recipes that a "normal" household would both enjoy making and eating.
The pictures of the finished product helps, the instructions for baking and/or making are easy to follow with ingredients readily available.
The recipes are all designed to make larger dishes of food. Some recipes make larger appetizer-style or side dishes meant to supplement a meal, while others make two 13"x9" casserole dishes full of food. This is exactly the kind of quantity for which I was looking. There are over 500 well-tested recipes, and each one has a name attached to it - the names mean that someone felt good enough about their recipe to share so while a few "dud" recipes may be found in this collection they are few and far between.
The collection is broken up into the following chapters: Church Supper Classics, Appetizers & Snacks, Comforting Casseroles, Slow Cooker Favorites, Breakfast & Brunch, Salads & Side Dishes, Hearty Main Dishes, Soups & Sandwiches, Delightful Desserts, Seasonal Fare, Quick & Easy, and finally Feeding a Crowd. There's quite a bit of overlap between the chapters, especially when it comes to desserts - there seem to be dessert dishes sprinkled throughout the cookbook and that can make finding a recipe again a little more challenging.
Roughly one third of the recipes come with pictures, making this a colorful cookbook.
So far, we have had good success with this cookbook and have found a few new family favorites, as well as a bunch of recipes that we have marked to try somewhere in the near future. Baked Ziti is one on the favorites list and is one that makes two casserole dishes full of food, perfect for ensuring that my teens aren't hungry when they leave the table and there's still food left over for the next night.
Overall, this is a good cookbook that provides a good collection of large-quantity recipes. The recipes do not result in fine-dining fare, but almost all result in nice family style dishes that feed a crowd. If you need large batch recipes, this is a good book to consider for your collection.
