    I took this one back

    This had a lot of recipes that are all ready in other books.I have found this to be turn with a lot of the cook books of Williams Sonoma. I have two of their big cook books I got at the Williams-Sonoma store at the mall. When I started looking in the smaller ones I was getting at Barnes and Noble,I was surprised how many repeats they have! If you have gotten any of the smaller ones with single titles like Bread, Cakes, cookies or anything like that you all ready have the recipes that are in this book. But if you want a book that tells you what to put with what for a dinner party, then this is a good book for that. I have 16 Williams-Sonoma cookbooks, so now when they come out with a "new" one I check to see how many NEW recipes are in it first.
