I waited though until I tested a few recipes before I wrote this review, but thus far I've successfully made the Spaghetti & Meatballs, Smothered Pork Chop, Roast Lemon Chicken, Old-Fashion Potato Salad, Chocolate Chip Cookies, the Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, and the Devil's Food Cake and all were not only delicious, but also looked incredibly attractive, PLUS the recipes were pretty much exactly to the ingredients/instructions they provide!
This book is good for beginners (easy instructions, plus the ingredients are simple and readily available) but also for the seasoned home-chef, as they relive many of these old favourites that go down well with any sort of company or family occasions.
Just one quick note: there aren't any salads featured in the sides area which was a little surprising, but then I suppose it's "comfort" food, so I should not really have expected anything suitable for a slimmer variety. I have admittedly though limited a little of the butter or oil in a few recipes, but you can do that easily without spoiling any of the quality.
Overall, the beautiful pictures, easy instructions and ingredients, and pleasant personal descriptions from the author (giving a little side-note, variant, or history to the recipes) make this a fantastic purchase or a gorgeous gift to a enthusiastic or seasoned cook!
