Editorial Reviews

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. (Oct.)
Library Journal
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.

I've been hesitant to download cookbooks to my Nook--I like the idea of eCookbooks, but haven't found one that I thought was worth the purchase price. Some bad experiences with "The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" aside, I trust the Good Housekeeping name, especially when it comes to recipes, so, I broke down and spent the money on it. That being said, I LOVE this cookbook. The recipes are well explained, and there is an extended glossary. (granted, I'm an experenced enough cook that I don't NEED the extended glossary, but I think it's a sign of a good cookbook when they explain terms like braise and blanch.) Minus one star because the navigation leaves something to be desired, but that's as much a problem of the Nook as it is with the book (I'd love to be able to put notes with my bookmarks, for instance) and there are several charts that are too small to see on my screen, and can't be zoomed in on. I may have spent more time reading The Good Housekeeping Cookbook than the last novel I bought, and my family is more than a little concerned about the menu I have planned for Christmas dinner--rhere are just so many interesting and delicious looking recipies that I'm dying to try. And so far, every recipe from this book that I've made has more than exceeded my expectation.
