I found this particular recipe book to be overwhelming. There are pages and pages of nearly identical recipes, which is not at all what I look for in a cookbook. I'd rather find one really good fudge recipe instead of thirty very similar fudge recipes. I was bored with the repetition and unable to bestir myself to choose. The recipes were also pretty regional- a great many being drawn from the author's local newspaper archives. Disappointing.
Homemade candy during the holidays is not only a tradition in our family, it is an absolute must! I was thrilled when I discovered this gem. It contains all my favorites that I don't yet have recipes for (you know the ones your mom or grandma just make without a real recipe-I have no idea how big a pinch or a dash is). Love this one, I will treasure it always.
I love this book. Every recipe I've tried turned out and was quite good. The instructions are straight forward and easy to understand, which is bonus since I had never made candy before. I also liked the stories behind the candy, it felt like you were learning from a friend in a kitchen rather than a how to book.
Comfort candy at it's best. Inviting intro and explanations encourage the most noob of the noobs not to fear trying anything from this book. Each recipe is rated on skill level, 50s theme of page decor, and mouth watering recipes for all seasons and occasions. I definitely recommend this one to anyone.

ok so you can't really be "reading" a cookbook, but i only tried one recipe from here, i just had to find one at the spur of the moment that i had all the stuff for. it turned out poorly. just a bad recipe i think. lots of good ideas, though.

Recommends it for: everyone
This book has so many great recipes, I don't know where to start. Candymaking is an old-fashioned way to have fun and use of spare ingredients and yet, so few people still do it. Great book with lots of fun ideas.
