I do believe I’ve just found a new “go-to” cookbook!

Being someone who loves to cook and try new things, but has no specialized training, I appreciate cookbooks that not only provide the recipes, but also give us tips and tricks for making the dishes turn out as tasty and beautiful as those you find in restaurants. The recipes collected in Fine Cooking Comfort Food: 200 Recipes for Soups, Stews, Casseroles & More are for the home cook who wants to bring something special to the table without

As someone who is not a great lover of cooking but who likes good food, 'Fine Cooking Comfort Food' is an absolute must. It offers a great range of exciting meals which wouldn't be out of place in a good restaurant. The recipes are easy to follow and simple to prepare.

The book offers a wide selection of recipes which are colourful and tasty. I feel it would even be suitable for vegetarians as there are quite a number of meat-free dishes. I also love the hints and tips dotted throughout the book

This is yet another winner from the 'Fine Cooking...' range of books which was supplied in e-format and that I am definately going to buy in print to add to my ever growing cookery book collection.

It has what it says on the cover and that is a book full of mouth watering recipes for everyday comfort foods. It contains recipes for breakfasts & brunch, sandwiches, soups & chowders, stews & chilis, pasta & grains, casseroles and desserts. It even has recipes for side dishes to accom

Often it feels that nearly all food is, in fact, comfort food. After all, it invariably makes us feel happy until. perhaps, we stand on the weighing scales!

In any case here is an interesting book that promises a couple of hundred recipes that should help "prop up the spirits" and act as a comfort. Perhaps of particular use within the colder, more inclement times of the year but many of the recipes can also be of interest year-round.

Split into several sections - soups & chowders, stews &

For all you cooking enthusiasts out there, I bring you to you *ta-da* 'Fine cooking comfort food'. Ok, don't think too much about the title, I don't like it too. But the book, that's another story.

This book is your one-stop shop for all the goodies you plan to cook in your kitchen. First off, it's not at all boring. It's so colorful and beautiful that I can't get my eyes off the pictures.

Ya, ya, you want me to talk about what's cooking. Well, lots, 200 to be precise. You heard it right. This b

Fine Cooking Comfort Food in Need of a Bit of Comfort

Since I have not had the opportunity to review many cookbooks, I must warn readers that I fully intend to treat each, and every, book that I review the same, i.e. reviewing on its literary merit, format, and presentation. That said, this work has both good and not-so-good points. Some of the shortcomings come in the way of formatting.

The illustrations within this work are clear and well-done photos, although some of the chosen illustrations c

Fine Cooking Comfort Food by Fine Cooking Magazine is a book that has an abundance of classic comfort good recipes (Beef Stew with Root Vegetables, pg. 48; Turkey Noodle Casserole, pg. 91; and Classic Scalloped Potatoes, pg. 208), basic cooking tips & secrets (How to Make the Perfect Omelet, pg. 163; How to Ice a Cake, pg. 231), as well as twists on the "standards" (Apple Crisp with Pecans and Orange, pg. 233; Turkey Sou

If you enjoy trying new things in the kitchen, are looking for that spectacular 'date night' recipe sure to impress, have a social function to cater, or just want to step up from the standard home-cooked comfort food kind of menu, this is the cookbook for you.

Overall, I found the recipes included here to be very interesting and intriguing and plan to try several myself. The ingredients lists, generally speaking, were not too 'exclusive,' meaning you shouldn't have difficulty in finding most of t

Chances are you already have a your favorite recipe for classic comfort foods like chicken pot pie and macaroni 'n cheese. This cookbook takes comfort food to a more gourmet and international level. You will probably not have all the ingredients in your spice cabinet, but many of the recipes will peak your interest if you are an adventurous eater. I saw several possibilities, but for true comfort food I will stick with the familiar.

This book made me hungry. The pictures made the book lose 1 star because they didn't do justice to the recipes. I now have a few recipes to try and some that I've made. The best part of the book isn't the recipes though, but the cooking and baking tips. I just wish there was an e-book available for purchase on Amazon. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is a mouthwatering cookbook....sooo many good recipes with a lot of variations and plenty of "tips and tricks" to help along the way. This is going to be one of my "go to" cookbooks cause hey, you can never go wrong with comfort food!

Even though most of the recipes probably would not be to my family's taste, this is a beautiful cookbook. Plenty of great photos (a must for a cookbook, in my opinion) and directions that are to the point and don't look to difficult.

There are some fantastic recipes that are so tasty in this book. I hate it when you buy a cookbook and only use 1 recipe. Well with this one you will find more than one you'll want to try.
