Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Four million subscribers trust the flavor choices of Taste of Home magazine and their 1,000 field editors. With cookbooks like Grandma's Favorites and Family Collection Cookbook, the world's No. 1 cooking periodical has also proved that it can translate its kitchen talents into another medium. The Taste of Home Cookbook, the magazine's biggest project yet, features over 1,200 appetizer-to-dessert recipes with quick-read everyday ingredient lists, simple-to-follow instructions, and technique sidebars.
Library Journal
Most of the 1200 recipes in this book were contributed by readers and tested in the Taste of Home kitchen. These are not gourmet recipes but plain, comfort food from America's heartland. Chapters are arranged by type, beginning with appetizers and beverages and ending with candies, plus a section of "light and tasty" dishes. There is lots of useful information here: a description of ingredients; measuring, chopping, and cooking techniques; storage guidelines; and even examples of table settings for informal and formal meals. Presented in a five-ring binder, with tabs designating the chapters, numerous color photographs enhance the clearly written, uncomplicated recipes. A good basic source reminiscent of cookbooks of the 1960s and 1970s; recommended for libraries that have aspiring cooks, not chefs. Christine Bulson, SUNY at Oneonta Lib.
