Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book Reviews

  • Janine

    Best cookbook for beginners. It has all the classic instructions and recipes that a new cook needs. A MUST have in any kitchen. The 3-ring binder version is by far the best.

    Hands down, my most-used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I bought when I got my first apartment. I was poor and opted for the mass-market paperback version and over the past 30 years it has disintegrated. I recently decided to replace it with a fancy, shiny new spiral bound copy. It looks pretty and it's okay but in my opinion, it's not as good as my old one. Many of my favorite recipes are missing so it sits on the shelf. I take down my battered old faithful, held together with packing tape

It looks pretty and it's okay but in my opinion, it's not as good as my old one. Many of my favorite recipes are missing so it sits on the shelf. I take down my battered old faithful, held together with packing tape and a rubber band, and find the recipe I need. A classic!

    I don't know if perhaps it's me, but I there are a number of recipes in this book that I have had to tweak to make *ahem* BETTER. I am not a chef, but I do consider myself an amateur foodie of sorts. I had to adjust the muffin recipe (maybe I am just used to the super fabulousness of Gingerbread Muffin Company muffins, but anyways...), I had to work on the pizza dough recipe to get it to rise just so and become the correct consistency of pizza dough and not so crunchy at it kept turning out with

All in all, it is a good cook book and it has tons of hints and great recipes. The cinnamon buns are wonderful!

    I've found the majority of recipes in this new edition bland and flavorless, totally unlike my mom's edition from the late 60's. The low-fat, low-salt movement has taken its toll on this classic kitchen staple.

    For what it's worth, I cook with as little salt as I can get away with, but when you don't put any salt at all into a pie crust - eww.

    My suggestion is to search Goodwill or second-hand book stores for one of those earlier editions. You can always adjust the ingredients to suit a special d

    Also - whatever happened to the ingredient substitutions list that was in the back cover?

    I have finally decided to get rid of this book. For the last month I've been using it to hold down the lid of my dog's dry food container so she won't get into it because the latch is broken. I kept wanting this to be a good, useful go-to book like our old
