      My mom gave me this cookbook when I first got married 27 years ago. My kids have started moving out and have asked for a cookbook like mine. I was really surprised to find I could still find the exact same book after all these years. It tells you how to do everything from frying an egg to having a dinner party.

      For beginner through experienced. Quality cookbook. Good sensible instructions that clearly have been tested before written. Good practical everyday and special occasion advice on cooking ordinary family food. Nothing exotic that your family wouldn't eat. Good home cooking instructions. Good gift for novices! Will get them started correctly.

      This was given as a gift for a beginning cook. I liked the pictures and the step-to-step instructions.

      I first used this cookbook 30 years ago when my sister had an older version and it was the best cookbook I'd ever used. That version was no longer available so I wasn't able to get a copy for myself. Now with this up to date version I have the great recipes and PICTURES so I know what it is supposed to look like! This is the best comprehensive cookbook I've had. The recipes are clearly laid out with pictures making it the easiest cookbook to understand.

      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.
