Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

With its triple testing and strict quality control, The Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen equals reliability. In this, the first ever Test Kitchen ring-binder cookbook, that reliability is combined with a convenience that will make food preparation a pleasure. Each of the book's 375 recipes is accompanied by colorful icons that indicate notable qualities: low-calorie, heart-healthy, 30-minute meals, make-ahead, slow cooker. The Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen Cookbook also includes links to 35 how-to cooking videos. One of the most valuable cookbooks of 2011.

Publishers Weekly
This solid, encyclopedic reference opens with an equipment overview, including basic knife skills, and is followed by practical advice for food safety and healthy eating, some entertaining strategies, and an introduction to wine. Recipes, which are helpfully coded with symbols for heart-healthy, slow cooker, and make ahead , reflect the magazine’s multicultural but accessible sensibilities: miso soup stands by split pea with ham, and chicken with rice; Brazilian pork chops and Cajun meat loaf are included alongside oven-barbecued spareribs. Vegan pumpkin waffles and crustless leek and gruyere quiche are thoughtful nods to changing contemporary diets. Throughout, tips on buying and preparing whole grains, freezing and reheating casseroles, and frosting layer cakes enhance the educational experience. This volume brings the venerable institution up to date with QR codes that enable the reader to instantly watch helpful how-to videos on a smartphone. While this volume isn’t breaking any new culinary ground, it would make an ideal gift for a young or emerging home cook. Photographs. (Oct.)

    Great Up to date Recipes

    Well designed with a good variety of meal suggestions in every category. The recipes are easy to read and follow. Good thought to today's meal planning. The binder could be improved a bit to make access to the pages easier. As it is it's awkward to turn the pages with the angular ring.

    Good Recipes Not so Good Packaging

    The recipes appear to be interesting, diverse and all that I'd hoped for, but the 3-ring binder came to me with the top ring not even close to closing. It seemed to be well packaged, so not sure how the damage was done. I would recommend to pick this one up in the store instead of having it delivered.

    Surprisingly good recipes

    When I first picked this up, I wondered how often I'd go it - love browsing through more gourmet type books - but when looking for a good basic recipe so far it has been a great resource. The muffin recipe is excellent and I've tried the pea soup recipe - I liked it because it had lots of veggies Both were better than the usual fare. I'm looking forward to trying even more recipes from this book.
