Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Versions of the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook have been pleasing and educating families for over 70 years. Perhaps our palates are more sophisticated and our nutritional sense more developed these days, but the BH&G Cookbook has remained a top seller and a family favorite. The new edition, the 12th, helps explain why. This loose-leaf classic includes the charts and sidebars and glossaries that Mom and Dad loved, but also hundreds of all-new, kitchen-tested recipes and new information on kitchen appliances and equipment.
