This is my favorite cooking references and family adult entertainment. Both are accomplished chefs and teir interactions are both informative, instructional, and immenselt intertaining. They both play-off each other's biases regarding cooking techniques in a humerous way; very funny. Technically both the book and the DVD's are excellent; superior quality in every catagory. I hope they plan on reprints for my future plans to purchase again as gifts for my children.

I purchased this for a gift. You know it's a good gift, when you look at it and think to yourself, "I should have ordered two!" Perfect for the Anglo-Foodie in your family.

I bought this cookbook for myself several years ago, and it has been a staple in my kitchen ever since. "Joy Of Cooking" is overall the best cooking and reference book I've ever picked up! I've satisfied family and impressed dinner guests with this book's help, and also learned so much! I bought a copy for a friend of mine who claimed she didn't know how to cook - it's that complete and easy to follow.

Cooking baking with sprouted spelt flour is a trick and once you learn how to cook with this flour you will be amaze how healthy you will feel. My husband is a diabetic, takes 4 to 5 shots a day. He get so depressed because he can not eat food! I have been reading on spelt flour and decided to try it and see if it will help...YES!! my husband now can eat noodles, bread and only takes 2-3 shots a day. I was so amazed when I made homemade noodles, he could eat spaghetti. Now remember I cook different then most. I buy organic pork, beef or grass feed. In the summer I have a large garden and grow all my veggies. I do a lot of sprouting too. I have lost over 40-lbs I have never felt this good in my life...A whole new world has opened up 4 my family...This cook book has some really good recipes. Everyone should be eating organic spelt flour and know more white, or wheat...its bad 4 you unless you sprout it... If you have cancer stay ways from all carbs...cancer loves sugar. Sprouted spelt flour is like eating veggies.

I have now purchased all the Ina Garten Cookbooks. I discovered that several of my co-workers have her books and love them and I was not disappointed. Every recipe has a photo with it so you know what the dish is supposed to turn out like. If you never cook a single recipe, you will enjoy just reading these books.

This cookbook was a wonderful purchase! It was on sale which made it even sweeter! You will love this cookbook if you like down home recipes. The ingredients are easily found in the grocery. The book also tells about her life and family on the ranch. I watch her show on food network every Saturday. Her recipes are simple yet delicious! You will fall in love with the recipes as well as her family and cute kids! There are also plenty of color photos. Buying this book was a no brainer, I love it!

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 grew up in a Polish family and we always had Polish foods at any holiday meal. My grandmother came directly from Poland itself. These recipes seem, from my memory, to capture the food the way it was prepared. I agree that the lack of an ingredient list makes preparation less easy but this is a quibble. Good book for the money.

This cook book is awesome! To create quick delicious meals that are healthy for you and your family there is no better deal out there than this book. Also the fact that you can cook a different meal each night of the year (if you wanted to).

I LOVE this cookbook and have recommended it to all my friends. The recipes are easy, fast, and healthy...no more having to rework recipes to make them fit a healthy lifestyle. I have tried many of the recipes in the book and have liked almost all, and LOVED several. The ones that are average I wrote notes and can easily add more seasoning to suit my family's taste. The ingredients are, for the most part, things you would normally have in the house or can be purchased at any regular grocery store. I love that the calories and nutrition facts are already calculated as well. I have checked the facts, and they are quite close. I think the differences is often dependent upon what brands of ingredients you use. I am online now to buy more as wedding presents! My son is getting married and I want my future daughter-in-law to have this book because while she likes to cook, they are busy working students and have very little time. The chapters in this book include recipes that serve just two, crockpot, casseroles, grilling and more. She will be able to make healthy meals and stick to a student's budget. It's awesome! I have a large collection of recie books and this is by far my favorite and most used. I plan my entire month's meals around it. I paid more than the listed price here, and it was worth every penny.

I was looking for an easy diet plan to follow that did not require counting and measuring and this is it. I lost 10 pounds in seventeen days and I never felt hungry. Not only does this book help put the Mediterranean diet into perspective it also gives information relating to serious health issues that plague Americans. My family history includes heart problems and dementia. This diet addressed the types of foods we should eat to counter attack these issues. You cannot lose in purchasing this book. It does require eating lots of chicken and fish. If you do not like either then this diet will be difficult. For me it is a breeze. Eating healthier and walking a mile per day has made me feel so much better. This diet has also been in the news lately for its great affect with countering dementia.

I have a hard back copy of this cookbook from back in the 70's and also a paperback copy. I have shared it with many friends and family. I've not fixed anything from this cookbook that was not absolutely wonderful, and truly " cajun cooking." Being from the coast of MS, this has been a staple in my cookbook collection. The recent order I placed was as a gift to another family member that loves that type of food.

Great cookbook for making cupcakes. Would recommend it to others and have given the book to my family. Recipes are easy to follow with ingredients that are available in any household.

I collect books from cooks I enjoy. This book was highly recommend to me by a family member. Jamie goes into using what is in season in your garden, what he grows and how, as well as some excellent recipes. Fun to read as well.

OK cookbook but not quite what I expected. Since I am a southener I expected more things I was familiar with.

I was looking for a book with timing charts for pressure cooking whole grains and beans. Not only does this book have great timing charts, it has tons of pressure cooker specific tips. (Now I know why my beans always used to burst, and it wasn't overcooking!) It is also full of recipes my family will love, and the recipes come with suggestions for changing ingredients for variety or personal preference. I love this book.

I bought six copies of this book for myself and for Christmas gifts. First of all, there is a soup recipe for each day of the year, delightfully arranged by months. Everyone first looked at the recipe for their birthday and for their family's. Recipes in each of the seasons focus on fresh ingredients from that particular time of the year. The other thing I love about the book is the index. There are two; Soups by Ingredients in which all the soups that contain asparagus, chicken, quinoa, shrimp, beets, kale, etc, for example, are listed together. The other listing is Soups by Type. Here soups that are vegetarian, fruit based, chilled, pureed, chowders, etc. are listed together, making it a joy to find just what you're looking for. The book is printed on heavy paper and is made to sustain many years of use. The soups are very creative and unusual. I cannot recommend this cookbook from Williams Sonoma highly enough. Now that the holidays are over and winter is upon us I'm looking forward to actually preparing many of them. Hummmm, I wonder what soup is listed for today? January 1st is Spicy Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. Sounds wonderful! Too bad the grocery stores are closed today. I'll check out tomorrow's.......

I have had the honor of eating some some wonderful food prepared by Darren McGrady. My wife and I are big fans and have been anxiously waiting the release of his first cookbook. Darren's talent with food, his insight into the royal family and his warm sense of humor make this book a MUST HAVE.

This is a great cookbook with lots of good recipes, and we're in New Mexico, so we know good SW cooking. Using a crockpot and getting great food is a boon for working families. We liked this book so much we bought a dozen and gave to our friends.
Finding a recipe online is easier than ever, and as a result, many people seem to be forgetting that traditional cooking books are a valuable asset to any kitchen. Cookbooks provide an enormous amount of irreplaceable information to anyone who needs to put together a meal or bake a treat. Here are some reasons why cooking books are a necessity for casual and serious cooks alike.
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.
Few kitchen appliances provide the ease and convenience of food preparation like a slow cooker. Sometimes called crock pots, slowcookers can easily cook a delicious one-pot meal for a whole family: just add the ingredients to the slow cooker early in the day; turn the appliance on; and the crockpot does the work for you. Selecting a slow cooker requires some consideration because slow cookers come in numerous sizes and offer a myriad of different features, so it's important to consider what size and features you want before buying.
You may not think children and cooking are two things that go together, but getting children involved with cooking offers great benefits. They'll enjoy cooking together with you. And you can encourage kids to eat a variety of foods; when children take part in making meals, they are much more likely to eat them. Having cooking tools that they can use will make this time together in the kitchen safe and fun.
If you live in an area with harsh winters or stifling summers, or if you just do not have the time to devote to maintaining a full-size grill, then an indoor electric grill might be the best way for you to cook delicious hamburgers, scrumptious seafood and tender vegetables on a grill. Electric grills are smaller and more versatile than their outdoor counterparts, and you can quickly prepare your favorite foods in the comfort of your kitchen.
Stinking Rose -- perhaps this is not the most popular title for a poem; nonetheless, garlic has plenty of qualities to praise. This bulb was used by the ancient Egyptians as far back as 2080 B.C. for both culinary and medicinal purposes. It's still important in herbal medicine. Of course, garlic still makes good food even better, and every great cook has a garlic press among their kitchen tools. April 19 is National Garlic Day in the United States, but you can celebrate garlic anytime with some tasty recipes and fun facts.

All too often, kitchen and dining room tables become a catchall for things, often because of a lack of organization and storage options. When children come home from school, the jackets and backpacks land on the kitchen table as kids head to the refrigerator. After doing several loads of laundry, clean clothes can end up on the dining room table. Mail, bills, books, phone chargers and accessories seem to migrate to this location over time. Cleaning off the dining room table can give your family back a space to come together and socialize without the presence of a TV.
The holiday season is your opportunity to show friends and family how much you love them -- and how well you know them.

Passover is a Jewish festival that begins at sunset on the 14th day of the Jewish calendar month "Nisan," which falls in March or April. The holiday, called Pesach in Hebrew, commemorates and retells the story of the Hebrews' emancipation from slavery under Pharaoh and their Exodus from Egypt under the leadership of Moses. In the days leading to the Hebrews' flight from Egypt, God afflicted the Egyptians with 10 plagues, the final one being the death of the firstborn of Egypt. To protect the Hebrews from the final plague, God instructed them to apply the blood of a spring lamb to the posts of their doorways. He would then "pass over" these homes. The holiday features both intensive preparation and festive meals.
