Overview

From Good Housekeeping, the most trusted home source in America, comes the very best in American cooking. Each of the 300-plus recipes is a classic, delicious, and perfect for the home cook.

From Southern Fried Chicken to New England Clam Chowder, Good Housekeeping presents the best of traditional, time-tested American cooking, all in one big, beautiful book. Every cook needs these favorites—with delectable photos and fascinating history tracing the recipes’ evolution—at her fingertips. All the recipes were triple-tested in the Good Housekeeping kitchens, where the magazine’s experts created the perfect rendition of every classic dish. And what a delicious portrait of American cuisine they paint! Who could resist Maryland Crab dip, Oysters Rockefeller, Bear Mountain Butternut Soup, Barbecued Pulled Pork or Boston Creme Pie? The recipes also reflect the American “melting pot,” with dishes ranging from Egg Foo Yong to Huevos Rancheros.

Ever wonder how certain popular recipes were invented? This cookbook has delightful historical sidebars providing background on the American culinary scene over time—Friday Night Fish Fries, Cakewalks at County Fairs, and more.

Good 'ole American classics and some I'd never even heard of, this is one cookbook you don't want to be without. A few of my favorite recipes are apple turnovers, homemade pie crust, meatloaf surprise, stuffed mushrooms, and quite a few more. There are step-by-step directions and tips to perfecting each recipe. Pictures of a lot of recipes included. I'm no gourmet chef, but I'm not an amateur in the kitchen either. I believe this cookbook is one for all cooking levels and experiences.
