Thomas Keller is the go-to man for exquisite dining. The recipes are complex and challenging - but oh so worth every bite. I have been to bouchon as well as Per se- the food was perfect - I am so happy that he shares his knowledge with us. Even if you don't like to cook, you would have to be in love with the photos. Everything he does is art and perfection.

I gave this as a gift at TG to a family member to look forward to Christmas cooking. It has many simple and yet elegant and different ideas. Small in page numbers so not overwhelming. Great for ideas.

I bought this book for a birthday present for a friend. She's a "foodie." She loves Thomas Keller and his restaurant. It was the perfect gift! Thanks overstock!

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.

"My Sweet Mexico" is quite possibly the most comprehensive and beautiful book on Mexican sweets of all kinds. Most recipes are easy enough for the home cook to use, and most ingredients are readily available. I love this book.

My boss lent me this book for a few days, and I knew I had to buy a copy for myself. I love this book! The recipes are delicious and easy to follow and offer great ideas for modifications! The book also contains beautiful photos that inspire me whenever I flip through it. I also love her writing about the issues of veganism and entertaining. All in all, a wonderful book that I recommend to everyone!

This is one of the best diet recipe books ever. It also has an no nonsense easy to follow plan as well. However it doesn't matter what diet plan you are following, or just want to watch your calorie and fat intake, anyone can use this book. My family and I are on a diet and had a memorail day party. I didn't want to go off my diet so I decided to take a chance and made the chili dogs, barbeque burgers, cole slaw and potato salad, and sticky buns. Well I had hardly any leftovers and people raved about the food. After we had all finished eating I told them that it was all "diet" food, well no one could believe it. In fact I had to get the book and show them. The sticky buns are great, and I live in PA where we know stickies!. The honey lime london broil is fantastic, as well as the chicken and penne in vodka sauce. What I love about this book is the ingredients are easy to find, you don't have to go to 20 different places or speciality stores to get things, you can get them in all most any grocery store. The recipes are also very adaptable, if you don't like things spicy or don't care for a certain spice you can adapt the recipe. There is everything in this book from breakfast, sandwiches, veggies, potatoes, entrees, salads and desserts. I say if you are watching what you are eating pick this book up, you won't be sorry. This book is a Great find!

My 12 year old son and I love this book. It is easy to follow with many recipes using basic ingredients. He is able to make bread without any help. There are also plenty of different ones too which we had to buy special flour for. The book is also made well as the binding allows it to stay open without being held in place, but the pages are not thin and cheap. We tired several bread machine books from the library but this was the only one we liked enough to purchase.

If you like Mark Bittman, you'll enjoy this little synopsis of his theory of meal preparation and enjoyment. As a devoted cook or devotee to Mark Bittman, this is much too small to be informative. However, I think it is a wonderful gift to a cook who might enjoy an introduction to simple cooking. That being said, I do love the recipes that are offered. Clean, simple and beautiful in allowing the food to speak to you without being overwhelmed by sauces or complicated techniques. As sampler of what food can do with a little acid, salt, pepper and good oil, this is a really nice introduction.
Book clubs are a great way to indulge your reading habit while making long-lasting friendships. Furthermore, book clubs serve as an excellent venue for discussing and sharing your thoughts on books. Getting different opinions from a book club discussion can supplement or change your own view of the book and introduce you to new viewpoints or thoughts that you may not have come up with on your own. Anyone can be an integral part of a book club; you don't have to be a literary critic or professor to contribute. It's easy to start a book club; just follow these steps.
Several events in your life are worth memorializing with scrapbook albums and photo albums; events like births and weddings are life changing while graduations and moves document one's progression through life. Preserve the memories of each of your children by making baby scrapbook albums for them. Baby books make great gifts for your grown children, help you organize your boxes of photos and momentos and can become a fun pastime as you cherish those fond memories. Choose scrapbook albums that fit the theme of the child's baby scrapbook, such as a blue scrapbook for a baby boy; then get to work making it a piece of art and collection of memories with these ideas.

April 7 is National No Housework Day. Is there a better way to celebrate a lovely spring day in the middle of spring cleaning season than to ignore some chores?

Ask any woman, and she'll tell you that her perfume speaks volumes about her personality and her style. Choosing a perfume for someone should be a personal experience, so it is important to put a lot of thought into the process, rather than instinctively opting for the women's fragrance with the prettiest packaging or highest price. Take some time to get to know a woman's tastes and habits and the perfume notes that attract her and you'll be able to find a fragrance that she will adore.

It's true. Today's music scene is incredibly diverse, and many Generation Y members enjoy listening to everything they can. These audiophiles are usually easy to spot because they are surrounded by loud music whenever possible. They simply can't stop listening to music, which makes gift buying particularly easy. This guide should give you some helpful tips on buying gifts for music lovers.
On a road trip, getting to where you're going is half the fun. The drawback to flying to your destination is missing all the unique stops along the way. Driving vacations can be a great adventure for kids, so create a more memorable holiday this year by consulting the travel guides and mapping out your own family road trip.
The holiday season is your opportunity to show friends and family how much you love them -- and how well you know them. Some people panic when gift-giving season comes around again, while others enjoy looking for the perfect gift for everyone on their list. No matter what your gift shopping style is, it's important to choose gifts carefully. Use these ideas when you are holiday shopping for your wife, husband, mom, dad, best friend, son, or daughter.
No matter your child's age or interests, there's a toy that is perfect for him. If you're shopping online for the best toys, you'll want to consider a few things before you make your choice. Not only will his eyes light up when he unwraps his perfect birthday gift or Christmas present, but he'll also use it for a long time.
Keeping your child entertained can take a lot of creativity on your part, but with the help of kids' craft kits, it's a little easier. Learning a new skill helps to pass the time and gives children confidence in themselves. Crafts are even more fun when there is a holiday theme, and crafts help them participate in the holiday festivities. Help your children discover a new hobby that they will love for the rest of their lives and get into the spirit of the holidays at the same time.
Generation Y -- people who were born between 1980 and 2000 -- is one of the largest age groups around. They may all be grouped together and labeled as millennials, but it's an incredibly diverse group. Because they aren't all into the same things, shopping for them can be tricky, especially when you want to surprise them with gifts. Choosing presents for the millennials in your life may seem like a mystery, but chances are they have left clues for you to determine what they want. Once you decipher the clues, you can zero in on the perfect gift. So, which Gen Y-er are you shopping for?
