The better homes and garden cookbook. Well let me just say that these books have been in my life since I was born. I mean as a child I was fascinated with my mothers books in our bookshelf. My mother’s mom had every available copy at the time and passed them down to her. It must have been the pictures that fascinated me but I loved playing with them. I can tell you honestly that see still has these books today after more then 40 years and there still intact. There well worn and pages are not intact ,but still there.
As I grew up I referred to these books often for ideas and recipes. Or just how to go about preparing something. At the time the simplest of things were so hard to do, but having these books was a life saver and a money saver as well. I mean there was little wasted food due to being improperly prepared.. As I grew older and moved out of my mothers house one of the first things I did was run out and buy a copy of the new 12th edition book. And still refer to this book today. With all that it features
Features: Over 900 new recipes -- 1,200 in all-reflect current eating habits and lifestyles; 500 new photographs -- over 700 in all-including 60 percent more of finished food than the last edition; Dozens of new recipes offer ethnic flavors, fresh ingredients, or vegetarian appeal; Many recipes feature make-ahead directions or quick-to-the-table meals; New chapter provides recipes for crockery cookers; Efficient, easy-to-read format, with recipes categorized into 21 chapters, each thoroughly indexed for easy reference; Expanded chapter on cooking basics includes advice on food safety, menu planning, table setting, and make-ahead cooking, plus a thorough glossary on ingredients and techniques; Appliance-friendly recipes help cooks save time and creatively use new kitchen tools; Nutrition information with each recipe, plus diabetic exchanges; Contemporary food photography attracts browsers and helps cooks discover new recipes to make; Icons identify low-fat, no-fat, fast, and best-loved recipes; Every recipe tested and perfected by the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen; Revised and updated cooking charts, ingredient photos, emergency substitutions, and equivalents; Respected, reliable kitchen reference with hundreds of cooking terms, tips, and techniques.
Its more then just a basic cookbook as I’ve see it referred to as, but more of a healthy life guide to better cooking, and it gives a feel of family and friends and memories that’s comforting. Everyone should own a copy , and it should be a required text book in cooking classes..
