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!
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 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.
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.
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.
