As a buyer of many cook books, this cookbook for kids is terrific! Not only does it have easy to understand recipes, but the illustrations of all the ingredients & supplies needed is great for those beginner cooks. The quick tips for good manners is an added bonus. Paula Deen is my favorite TV food personality & she has done a GREAT job on this book! I highly recommend it.

My mom has been a subscriber to Martha Stewart magazine for years, and I've always looked forward to the "Cookie of the Month" recipe at the very back because the cookies always turn out amazing. So as soon as I heard about the Cookie book--I bought it (and for much cheaper on Overstock!). So far I've made: Giant Chocolate Sugar Cookies, Almond Macaroons, Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing, and the Spice cookies with blanched almonds--ALL have turned out perfect and are eaten in a day or two. Martha's the only one I'll get a cookie recipe from now!

If you love their TV show and/or magazine plus trying to watch the calories and quality, this is for you. I bought this for a friend after using my copy for more than a year. Every recipe has been a success. The whole family loves the results.

I bought this book for my daughter, she is married almost 2 years and a relatively new cook. She likes the book because it has alot of basic recipes. The book has photos of what the dish should look like which helps also.

This is a great book. While not literally encompassing all possible things one might like to cook, it certainly offers an extensive collection of recipes with nearly endless variations on most. It takes the mystery and perhaps some of the anxiety out of cooking by providing thorough explanations from procedure to choosing ingredients. There are nealy endless illustrations on proper technique and numerous time-saving grids for referencing variations on recipes that are readily modified. As an industry professional, I find it an invaluable resource and HIGHLY recommend it.

I love watching the Barefoot Contessa's show and have always wanted her books. Now I have three of them and they are great! There are pictures for almost every recipe and they are easy to follow! I only wish that she would have a magazine like a few of the other Food Network personalitys have.

This book gives good information on how to cook pizza and your options to do it. The recipes I've tried so far have been excellent. I went from having never made a homemade pizza to cooking pizzas I'd put up against restaurant pizzas in less than a month. My only complaint about the book is that more illustrations would be nice. My first attempt to cook a pizza was a total disaster and I think I could have avoided that had there been more illustrations. That said, by the third attempt I was cooking outstanding pizzas. I look forward to trying more of the recipes and making pizzas for my friends. This is already one of my favorite cookbooks.

What a good cookbook good illustrations easy to follow recipes ,and some recipes are for two people which I found great as there is only my husband and I. healthy as well and the internet address for spices etc for peple like myself that live distant from large stores makes it easier to make most of the recipes I would highly recommend this book. Also the cover can be cleaned (messy cooks like me) need that.

I love all the Beard cookbooks, but Beard on Bread is my favorite. It's full of recipes, illustrations and hints that make baking bread a delight.
