    I was asked if I'd be interested in reviewing this cookbook and,

    I was asked if I'd be interested in reviewing this cookbook and, while I had to laugh at the name, I was more than willing to give it a shot. I had never heard of "The Frog Commissary Cookbook", though I see now that many consider it a classic. I have to say, I have really enjoyed it! I received it during the holiday season and since I couldn't find my old stand-by pecan pie recipe, I decided to use the recipe from this book. Wow! I'm so glad I did!! I have to say, this is one of the best pecan pie recipes I've ever used. I HIGHLY recommend it along with the Phyllo Packets with Spinach, Feta & Pine Nuts. Yum!! Make sure to try out the Mixed Vegetable Slaw and Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Roasted Peppers & Balsamic Vinegar as well. I have to admit, I have not yet tried the Carrot Cake recipe, which I'm told is the best there is, but it is definitely on my "to-cook" list.

    This is a great cookbook. Many recipes are unique and the layout is pretty nice. There are line drawing illustrations scattered throughout the book that add to the vintage cookbook look. I have to admit, some photos would be really nice. All-in-all, this is a really nice cookbook with interesting recipes, and I would definitely recommend to anyone to check it out.

    I received a copy of this cookbook from Cammino Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    A favorite

    I have very fond memories of both Frog and the Commissary Restaurants; the Commissary, especially, was a favorite place to stop off for a brioche slathered with strawberry jam before heading to the office. And their signature carrot cake and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were to die for. I bought this cookbook when it was originally published and it is so well-used that the pages are falling out. Naturally, I had to replace my worn copy. The recipes are easy to follow and absolutely delicious; the illustrations are charming and I really like the suggestions that pepper the margins of the book. Whenever I am looking for something different, or for a spectacular dessert, this is the book I turn to.

    Fantastic Cookbook!

    I loved the old Commissary restaurant in Philly and, like everyone else, especially their carrot cake (the pecan cream between the layers is the real differentiator). Their salads and entrees were also out of this world and from all I've tried so far, they translate very well to the cookbook. I'm finally buying a copy of the cookbook for myself because my sister is tired of me calling to ask for recipes from hers.

    The best cookbook ever!

    This has been my favorite cookbook for the past 20 years! All the recipes are excellent and distinctive and I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't love this book or the recipes in it. It's divine!

    One of my very favorite cookbooks

    This has been on of my favorites for about 15 years. I wore one copy out and had to replace it. Have made MANY recipes out of this book and haven't found a bad one yet. It's my cookbook gift of choice - everyone that has received one from me has raved about it. Carrot cake recipe is absolutely out of this world.

    It's a page turner!!

    I stumbled across this cookbook in Reading Terminal. My mother was SO HAPPY so see it. It contains what she say¿s is the worlds best carrot cake (which she is insistent I make for an upcoming party) and Killer Cake. You have never had anything like the Killer Cake! The recipe says it serves 16, it is more like 20-24. Try freezing the cake crumbs and popping back a few crumbs whenever you need a chocolate fix. There are so many GREAT looking recipes in this book I can¿t wait to get through them. I was reading this book before I went to bed last night, I couldn¿t put it down. I will be purchasing a spare copy for myself, one for my mother and sister.

    A Family Favorite

    My family absolutely loves every recipe we have tried out of this cook book. The Apple Pie is a prize winner every time! My sister introduced me to this cookbook many years ago, and I won't let anyone borrow my copy!!! I am afraid they won't give it back!
