The prices were great on the books and the books are exactly what I was looking for, but it took 15 days to get my order shipped to me via U.S. Postal Service. I didn't realize they were still running ponies up north where the books came from. I ordered three different items at three different days from other companies and received all the items way before I received my order from Overstock. I will use Overstock again, because of the prices, but man they need to improve on the shipping time.
The recipes in this book are very good. We have made several, and have recommend this book to other people. I give it 4 stars since the recipes require a lot of time and preparation. If you don't want to spend a lot of time cooking, then you won't like this book.
Always good to return to the star who started most of the cooking revolution in the United States. Anybody who has seen Julia on TV remembers her speech, her techniques, and her helpful hints. Purchased for us, one of our sons (a Top Chef in recent competition), and a daughter in Germany who likes to try new and different things. Can't go wrong with Julia!
