Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

To celebrate their 125th anniversary, the kitchen wizards at Good Housekeeping worked overtime to create their best cookbook ever. This revised, expanded, fully illustrated edition of The Good Housekeeping Cookbook contains 1,275 kitchen-tested recipes, including 168 new dishes. In addition to all those fixings, this 752-page marvel contains up-to-date information on basic and specialized cooking techniques; tools and ingredients; canning, freezing, and handling of food; and nutrition. A trusted name—and don't forget the Southern Fried Chicken and Strawberry Shortcake!

Publishers Weekly
This update of the iconic magazine's cookbook has recipes for all tastes and occasions, and gives The Joy of Cooking a run for its money. Traditionalists may scoff at some of the crew's shortcuts (a version of the classic Vietnamese soup pho using canned chicken broth, for instance), but most recipes remain faithful to tradition. Those new to the kitchen or in need of an all-encompassing reference will find the knowledge and confidence to roll up their sleeves and warm up the oven. In addition to recipes for practically every imaginable American dish, readers will learn basic techniques for cutting up and grilling a whole chicken, deveining shrimp, interpreting food labels (nutritional information is included for each recipe), creating formal place settings, and even getting the most out of the mundane (five ways to use up extra tortilla chips, for instance). Quick recipes and simple dessert preparations, like Fire-Roasted Nectarines and Coffee Granita, will please anyone pressed for time, but the encyclopedic inclusion of recipes for everything from Egg Salad, Lobster Bisque, and Chocolate Souffle to Pad Thai, Salmon with Mustard-Dill Sauce, and Muffuletta is its true benefit, making it a cookbook readers will grow with.

From the Publisher
"Good Housekeeping is well known for its colorful photos and easy-to-follow recipes, and this 125th anniversary edition is no exception. The introduction includes information on equipment, measuring, cutting, and storing. A photographically illustrated vegetable guide covers availability, peak season months, storing, preparing, cooking, and eating. Step-by-step photos (such as cutting up a raw chicken) will make this an essential resource for beginning cooks. With recipes to wow guests as well as perfect family meals, this is highly recommended." --Library Journal (STARRED REVIEW)

    Dependable!!!!!

    Actually, I have the 1973 edition of this cookbook; received as a wedding present and am still in love with it (and my husband!) There has never been a failure in using these recipes. As a very naive-in-the-kitchen newlywed I wanted to try every recipe in the book; I'm still working on it! Though there have been other cookbooks added to my collection through the years, this is always the one I know I can rely on no matter what the occasion, no matter what recipe is needed.
