I won't lie, I haven't bought a cookbook since Chef Jai Scovers' cookbook called Simple Healthy and Delicious. But, when I saw this in the store, I honestly fell in love. The Hasselback baked apples and green beans with goat cheese are novel ideas. So overall, this book is highly recommended.

I plan on buying Steve's and Kathy's Happy Cook Book. I am a 66 year old man that has watched Fox and Friends for years. What impresses me is the love the Doocy family has for one another, that is something that has been lost from our society. I will buy the book this weekend. Thank you to you and family Steve. God bless you.

I ordered 2 both damaged. the box they came in was taped down like a 3 year old did it, the one ends deliberately smashed in to fit the products. Each book was damages, jacked torn on front and back , pages bent inside, these were obviously returns." This does not appear to be the book shown on TV its a lot smaller. I cannot believe that sellers on sites like etsy and ebay do a nicer job of packing and sending what they say NEW. Sad to see Barnes and Noble come to this and their customer service was just pathetic they don't care.
