This collection includes vegetables, chicken, beef, pork and lamb, fish and shellfish, pasta and beans, and chilled and fruit soups. Most sections include both lighter soups and heartier stews. While many are the long-simmering creations we associate with the genre, others take advantage of deli items, ramen noodles, or other conveniences to make a quick meal. Some are also designed for the Crock-Pot, and many of those that aren't could easily be adapted by slow-cooker users. The recipes are laid out nicely, and the spiral binding allows the book to lie flat when open. Not all recipes are illustrated, but those that are feature close-up photos that show the dishes off to real advantage. Overall, what you would expect from Good Housekeeping: well-tested, not too complicated recipes at a reasonable price. Recommended for large cookery collections or where there is interest.
