Reading and collectin recipes has been a hobby of mine for many years. This cookbook is one of my all-time favorites. I have given this cookbook as a bridal shower gift several times and it gets passed around the room so everyone can look throuhg it. Anyone who likes to cook shoul own a copy of this cookbook.

I was so disappointed in this book. I have another name brand cookbook that is so amazing that I ordered this one. The one I own that made me want another one was named The Great American Name Brand Cookbook and is so much far and away better than this tiny little book that has only very few recipes that would even be used in someone's home. What a waste!

My recommendation, pass it by!

Just before my grandmother passed away a few years ago she gave me a box full of her cookbooks---she & I shared a love of cookbooks, and she knew I collected them. This book was among them. I love it----there are some terrific little gems in here! It's not haute cuisine by any stretch, but there are some usable recipes that are easy to make and tasty. A sentimental favorite for me.

This cookbook is not really worth buying. You can find many of these recipes online. There are a number of recipes that can be located in other cookbooks. Save your money. Look online or borrow from a library!

If you want to sell more of your product, you'll make sure the recipes on the package are fabulous and play up your product to its best advantage, right? Right! One of my go-to cookbooks.
