Okay, I know what my friends are thinking...this is a cookbook and you don't "really" cook! However, I was intrigued by these people's obsession with perfection and fool-proofing (since I can't seem to achieve either). I happened to see the America's Test Kitchen show on PBS one night, and looked them up to see if they had any books in the library. And they did!

There were various books that I checked out from the same group, but this one only has the regular recipes that you see everywhere. How

Things have been a little busy around here and I haven't had time to really delve deeply into recreating all of the fantabulous offerings found within this book. But I did try the bacon. (We are so classy.) I have always favored the pan-frying method myself, while my mother always preferred the microwave. The book proposed trying it in the oven. We tried it. We liked it. Not really life changing. We don't eat THAT much bacon. But it is still good information.
I did enjoy the breakdown of experiments to find the "perfect" recipe as presented in this book. That said, I tried several and didn't like them a tremendous amount, but the breakdown of how they came to their decisions on what made that recipe tops helped me adjust the recipe to my liking. Does that make sense?

This is not my favorite of the series, but it is very good, especially if your cookook collection doesn't cover this area
