Overview

Good Housekeeping magazine keeps up with the best new ideas without neglecting the tried-and-true classics. That's why we've completely revised your favorite cookbook to reflect the way you live today.

In addition to all the trusted hows and whys of cooking for family and friends, here's what's new in The New Good Housekeeping Cookbook:

Because American homemakers are more sophisticated about cooking: It has more than 2,000 step-by-step recipes that emphasize fresh ingredients and all the new foods appearing in the supermarkets.

Because we care more about healthy eating: Every recipe contains calorie counts and nutrition information in an easy-to-understand format developed especially for this book.

Because microwave ovens have revolutionized the way we cook: There's a special chapter devoted to recipes specifically created for the microwave - not just adapted from conventional recipes.

Because busy lives allow less time in the kitchen: There are menus for more than 100 meals that can be prepared in less than 40 minutes.

Because even the most experienced cook wants to learn new methods and short-cuts: There are special tips from the editor's kitchen.

-- and because Good Housekeeping is one of the most trusted names in America today -- This brand-new, completely updated edition of an American classic is still the best, most complete, most basic cookbook you can buy.
