I have only tried a couple of things in the cookbook, but 2 out of 3 of them didn't turn out right. I'm not sure that it's the cookbooks fault - certainly it could be mine, but I HAVE cooked before... Anyway, I don't know if some of the recipes had typos or not. Also, I tried the lemon muffins with the glaze and it turns out they look nothing like the pictures. And the glaze that goes on them looked like frosting in the pictures, but the instructions don't make a frosting, but instead a glaze. I noticed someone else comment on the "stock pics" that were inserted instead of actual pictures of finished dishes. I guess that makes sense why the muffins didn't turn out like the picture... but that seems a bit misleading. (and disappointing!)

I wouldn't recommend this book. It's just as easy to look up a recipe online considering none of the recipes are the authors original recipes/interpretations. At least online you can read people comments so if there is a typo you can correct the mistake before you make it.

I gave it 2 stars because there's a lot I haven't tried and their MUST be something in there!

Purchased the cookbook with my sister. We are making a recipe every week together out of this book. I have enjoyed it, but understand that the pictures are not pictures of the actual recipe. I have made a few and they were okay.

This is a pretty cookbook, but it has some problems. The first is that the photos only slightly resemble the recipes, which is odd. (Another reviewer has suggested that the publisher used stock photos, so that might very well be the case.) The second problem is that these recipes aren't all that "world-wide." They're mostly from the US with a few others thrown in. While the measurements have all been converted for the American cook, some of the ingredients have not. "Tinned corned beef"? Um.... I'm not too sure where to find that in the US. As one might expect, the majority of the recipes are kid-friendly, with casseroles and crock-pot cookery dominating the scene. These are not dishes for the discriminating palate. (One of them is for a hot dog casserole; the contributor admits she learned it in a 7th grade cooking class at Brockbank Jr. High in Magna, Utah. Now, Brockbank is a fine school, but it's not known for its haute cuisine. ;) )
The biggest problem, however, is that no one has bothered to edit the little biographies and stories included with many recipes, and so very many of them are very imperialistic in tone. There is a great sense of all those non-white, non-Mormons out in the great big world as THE OTHER, the other who must be Westernized, Americanized, and Mormon-ized. It's embarrassing. Instead of editing stories to things like, "I learned this recipe from some neighbors while I was visiting Haiti," the publisher has left in bits of testimony meeting-type tales about how grateful the contributor was to be with such "humble" people and how very "different" they were...... it's all way too Rudyard Kipling. And embarrassing. Very embarrassing. I cringed a lot reading through this.

I have made three recipes from this book and none of them have worked out. It could have been me, but I have cooked successfully before, and seriously all three were just bad. I made homemade tootsie rolls and they tasted gross and ended up looking like a giant turd, not impressive. There was this chocolate cake from Germany and it ended up a rock hard lump in the garbage. Then there were the brown sugar cookies. The cookies were okay, but the frosting was like concrete.

I just keep making things from this book thinking that something will eventually work and it becomes more hilarious every time I make something and it is just terrible. I don't know if it's typos or what because I have followed the recipes exactly and it is just shocking how every recipe totally doesn't work.

I was excited to see this cookbook at Costco, noticed others purchasing it and decided to check it out myself. Leafing through it, I was disappointed to find that the authors did not prepare and shoot photos of the actual finished recipes, but instead, filled the cookbook with inexpensive stock photography of pretty food that was more or less similar. For me, being the visual person that I am, this was unacceptable. A glossy, full-color cookbook full of new recipes must show the finished products or it may as well be printed on a stack of 3x5 cards or in a cheaply-bound, black and white 'traditional' ward cookbook.
Please note that I have not tried any of the recipes because I DID NOT BUY THE BOOK because there were no actual photos of the finished recipes. Hopefully the revised edition will show the actual finished recipes. Then I will be able to decide if they look yummy enough to buy the book and prepare them.

A friend gave me the cookbook and it received such hype, I was excited to try it. So far, it's been a big disappointment.

The first recipe we tried was the glazed meatloaf and it was just ok. I've made better from scratch without a recipe, though I did like that it was loaded with vegetables, though the carrots needed to be pre-steamed.

The next was the Chicken Broccoli casserole. I believe the recipe and the instructions were incorrect, as it states to divide the sauce into thirds, but there are only two layers of ingredients. The sauce was thick and tasted like straight mayo. Even my non-picky eaters didn't like it.

Sad that these recipes weren't tested and checked for accuracy before it was published. I'm hoping the rest of the book doesn't yield the same results, but I'm afraid I'm not too optimistic about that.
