    5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks again King Arthur
    I pre-ordered this book and looked forward to receiving it.I can tell you after trying 2 recipes in the first few days, it was well worth the wait.This book could replace all of my other baking books.The recipes are indeed not intended for dieters, but for those who love to bake and would like to provide healthier alternatives to their families.The pumpkin bars I made were received with raves at the party I brought them to.I also made the Saurkraut Rye bread which is moist and delicious, and healthy with 5 grams fiber per serving.The nutrition info is provided which is helpful.There is also a useful explanation of the various whole grain ingredients.I look forward to trying more recipes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
    I like to eat healthy and I love to bake!Until now, the two did not often go well together.I would substitute some flour for whole wheat, try fat alternatives, etc... with mixed results.No more!The first two nights I had this book I read it like a novel.There is so much good information and I wanted to see everything in it.I have since made 3 recipes: the easy whole-wheat bread, oatmeal cookies and peanut butter cookies and all came out great.I even substituted organic cane sugar for standard white sugar in the cookies (though I wouldn't risk that with breads) and they were fabulous.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Essential for your Baking Library
    Like their New England neighbors at Cook's Illustrated, the King Arthur bakers are dedicated to testing and re-testing, and above all, technique. There's a good dose of baking science, too - this is a volume Alton Brown and Rose Levy Beranbaum must assuredly have acquired for their own libraries.The knowledge that both Cinnamon and Garlic can impair the rising process in breads is in itself worth the price of the book.

    Paula Deen creates recipes to tempt your tastebuds in this collection of recipes.They are simple to make, often requiring only those ingredients that are on-hand in your kitchen.The results are satisfying and delicious.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quickly becomming my favorite cookbook!
    This book has been out for about 10 years now, but I only picked up a copy of it about a year ago and it has quickly become one of my favorite cookbooks. THE LADY & SONS SAVANNAH COUNTRY COOKBOOK is chock full of not only delicious recipes, but most are fairly simple to prepare.
    4-0 out of 5 stars This looks like a good one.
    I can't wait to try more of the recipes in this book.I have a lot of cookbooks, and many of them contain recipes I know I will never make, either because they're too complicated or just don't appeal to me, period. This book, however, lists recipes that are generally short and simple, and the food items look very down-to-earth and appetizing.I bought the book in the first place because several of my friends at work said it was their favorite and contained honest-to-goodness "real" food and meals their families like.I think they're right about that. ...

    Warmly effusive and dear yet gritty, Paula H. Deen seems mythically Southern. But this cooking luminary, proprietor of Savannah, Georgia'sLady & Sons restaurant, is the real thing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars what can I say?
    the book is by Paula Deen so it has to be great! My experience buying it through Amazon was the norm - great prices, prompt delivery, and product just as described.........who could ask for more??

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing great
    Read the recipes carefully, mistakes abound. Desserts pretty good, alot of box mixes, etc.. Really doesn't teach alot about cooking, but recipes are easy and some are very quick.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Scrumptous
    I absolutely love Paula and this is the first cookbook of hers that I've bought. The book has a great layout (cakes, pies, cookies, bars, etc.) There are a few pictures (they are not on the same pages as their recipes) that make me want to bake even more! Everything in the book sounds so delicious but the thing that really got me was her pound cake. Now she has about 5 or 6 pound cake variations - I tried the cream cheese variation. Over the past 6 months I have been searching for "the" pound cake recipe and have tried a ton of different ones always with disappointment. When I tried Paula's I kept my expectations low and I was blown away!! It actually tasted like pound cake, not too sweet, not to floury--just perfect!!! I can't wait to try the rest of her recipes, for each ten I looked at I would deffinitely try at least 8 and consider the other 2! A minor disappointment is that some of her recipes call for pre-made cake mixes. Although it is great for cutting down on time I suppose, I don't see the sense in putting pre-made mixes into a cookbook. Still doesn't take away from the flavor or temptation of her desserts. Excellence! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Baking must
    I love this book! But what else to expect from Dorie Greenspan? Her instructions are always so concise and easy to follow, that it is really impossible to get anything less than the desired result. Plus, it's a beautiful book, with gorgeous pictures. It is a large book, fit for a coffee table, but it's also easy to just place it on a counter and refer to it as you bake. But it's not completely wasted on a coffee table either, as Dorie Greenspan is extremely fun to read with plenty of anecdotes and an impersonal, friendly style.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect
    Now here's a baker after my own heart - Dorie Greenspan writes, "Some woman collect diamonds, I collect mixing bowls."After achieving a Doctorate in Gerontology some thirty years ago, Greenspan decided that she really wanted to bake - and bake, and bake, and bake - and bake she did - and still does, almost every day.
    5-0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING!!
    There is no other word for this work of art for all the "little" people of the baking world who don't have restaurant-grade kitchens yet want to bake as if they do!!

    Most diners believe that their sublime sliver of seared foie gras, topped with an ethereal buckwheat blini and a drizzle of piquant huckleberry sauce, was created by a culinary artist of the highest order, a sensitive, highly refined executive chef. The truth is more brutal. More likely, writes Anthony Bourdain in Read more

    Anthony Bourdain is a person I would be friends with if I knew him.He's cynical, he's blunt and he loves food.

    I love this book!!! I worked in the restaurant business for 10 years. Now that I have a "real job", I find myself missing the crazy work hours of reataurant life. I miss the people, because really, restaurant people are like no other. You either belong in the business or you don't.

    Very rarely does going slow save time, but that's exactly what happens when slow cookers are involved. There's nothing easier than prepping the night before and then turning on the cooker in the morning, so that when you return home from work, dinner is hot and waiting to be enjoyed. That's why cooks in a hurry will welcome Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Betty does not let you down.
    This was my first slowcooker cookbook for my first slowcooker, and I have yet to have a bad meal from it.The directions are clear, easy, and almost foolproof.It allows for convienance foods like canned beans or frozen veggies, without using a lot of processed food or added fat, also there are several for dried beans (cheap and good for you).Most of the ingredients are easy to come by. The tips are very helpful. I will be making some of these recipies for as long as I am still cooking. The spiral binding is just a great added touch. If you have a slowcooker buy this book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good recipes
    I've tried most of the Meat recipes and have liked them all. Some could have the spices upped a little bit for more zing. I just wish it had more main course recipes. I'm really not interested in dessert, soups and miscellaneous. I'm disapointed that the recipes don't indicate the approximate number of servings.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Every Recipe's a Winner!
    I love this cookbook!Every recipe I've tried so far is winner.There's a short slow-cooking information section at the beginning, and a great variety of recipesfrom simple and homey, to exotic and special.They all use ingredients on hand or easy to find at the grocery store.Some start from store-bought (cans of soup, salsa, broth), but most use "whole foods."Some of our family's favorites are the Chicken Stroganoff Pot Pie, Chicken Stew with Pepper and Pineapple, Hungarian Goulash, and the unusual Picadillo.The recipes come with substitution suggestions, finishing touches, and success tips.They give great side-dish ideas for a complete meal, such as serving the Thai Chicken with coconut rice and a cucumber vinaigrette.There's a wide variety of soups and stews, meats, poultry, sides, desserts, and also a vegetarian section.Most of the recipes are full page and come with a photo.These are favorites I'll be making again and again.My only complaint is that I wish there was even more! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I scream, you scream, we all scream for CUPCAKES
    IsaChandra and Terry (I am referring to them like they're old friends, but I've never met them... but this is beside the point) are the Grand Poo-Bah's of Vegan Culinary (F)Arts. Vegan With A Vegeance, IsaChandra's solo effort, changed my so-called vegan life. There isn't a vegan cookbook to compare. And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, along come the cupcakes, which seriously might jeopardize my ability to wear fitted pants.
    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW is all I can say...
    I have been a wandering vegan for about a year now, and the only reason I wander is to indulge in delicious, yummy sweet treats that contain egg and/or dairy.I was so impressed with Isa's first book that I pre-ordered this one from Amazon, and I shall wander no more!Wow.This is a must-have for anyone who is vegan or allergic to dairy.You can pretty much recreate any of your favorite cupcake (or cake, for that matter - same recipes, different pan) recipes without the need for cholesterol-laden egg or milk products (calories are another story...).The layout of the book is wonderful, and the pictures are great!I am so excited to make these as gifts for friends during the upcoming holiday season.They'll NEVER believe they're VEGAN.I think that's the highest compliment any pastry chef could receive.5 GLOWING STARS!Thanks, Isa, for making veganism so easy and tasty :) ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Trade secrets?
    Well I was shocked when I received this book that the recipes inside are actual Ben & Jerry's flavors. I figured they would be when I bought, but I figured on being disappointed. Making these is not a complicated 40 step process like some recipes. If you love Ben & Jerry's great Ice Creams and like making your own, you will enjoy these recipes.

    4-0 out of 5 stars yummy ice cream
    I tried several ice cream recipes that came with the recipe book with my ice cream maker as well as several I found online, they were all terrible, didn't freeze well, some didn't even make ice cream. Ben and Jerry's were the best recipes. The only problem I had was using the raw eggs. I e-mailed them and they told me they don't recommend using raw eggs. They told me how to pasturize the eggs or better yet use egg beaters. I have been using egg beaters in all their recipes and the ice cream comes out the same. They need to revise this book. I also asked them for some light recipes or frozen yougurt recipes which they told me they were not willing to share at this time. It would be great if they did another book with some new flavors. I recommend this book but do not use raw eggs use egg beaters instead.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Ben & Jerry!
    Per the advice of Amazon reviewers, I bought this book along with my first ice cream maker and have been very happy.The recipes are simple yet delicious, and the kids and I have fun thumbing through the book looking for a new flavor to try (can't wait to try Egg Nog).Also cool is the brief story of how Ben and Jerry got started in the ice cream business ~ so glad to see a couple of "Vermont Hippies" triumph over bigger, meaner competitors.:o)

    3-0 out of 5 stars A little bit newer desired
    When I was first married, in 1966, I received a Betty Crocker cookbook that I wore out through so much use. I bought a newer version but didn't like it as much as my older one. I was trying to duplicate the older one when I bought this one. I think was trying to find one that was published a little later than this one. I don't really like the way the index is set up in this one but I do appreciate the good amount of basic information provided for a new cook.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A "must have", but...
    Does contain very helpful information for the beginning cook left out of many "general" cookbooks. All the recipes turn out well, unlike recipes in some other cookbooks that seem like nobody ever tried before publishing them. Good for building confidence in a new cook.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with the original!
    My grandmother used this cookbook religiously for years and through it, taught me to love cooking and baking. Her original book was lost over the years, so I was delighted to get this version. It's absolutely perfect and so many recipes bring back fond memories. The recipes are simple and basic enough that I can share them with my 5-year-old daughter. We love the blueberry muffins and my husband raves about the pineapple upside down cake. Still my favorite cookbook! Thanks Betty! :) ... Read more

    Some friends had referenced some recipes and ideas from this book, so I got a copy.I'm totally underwhelmed.The attitude and tone of the book, starting with the pergorative "Diet Dictocrats" put me off to anything good that may have been found within it.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Good and Bad
    This book has some definite plusses and minuses.Some of the information and recommendations in it are extremely well-documented.Others are not well-documented, and some are just generally suspect.(The author says we should all be eating raw meat regularly, and doesn't even address issues of e. coli or salmonella.She also recommends soaking all fruits and vegetables in bleach water prior to eating them, although chlorine is a known carcinogen.)
    4-0 out of 5 stars Most educational cookbook you'll ever read
    Sally Fallon's cookbook scores high in the 'educational' department. Not content with providing healthy recipes, the book's introduction and ingredient "side notes" are a full text within themselves. And I applaud her taking a stand against conventional nutritional wisdom, which I have found - for my body - to be a recipe for disaster.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fine book reference from a fine Pastry Chef!!
    I had heard about this book from friends and colleagues and was determined to get it.After reviewing the recipes, ingredients, techniques and methods, I have determined this to be a PREMIERE and excellent reference book for improving my baking and pastry skills.It is truly a great asset to any beginner/intermediate/advanced home pastry chef-in-the-making.
    5-0 out of 5 stars On Baking by Eddy Van Damme is a MUST for every Chef & Cook!
    This cookbook is a feast for the eyes and offers extraordinary recipes for both the novice and professional baker. The recipes bring a new creativity and delicacy to the palate, herefore unavailable.I have prepared many of the recipes and ALL have been winners: check out the creme brulee and then continue to read through the multiple options that spring from this one delicious dessert.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
    I bought this book for myself several years ago. I learned so much because each recipe is a mini lesson with tips for those times when things go wrong. I just bought this book again as a bridal shower gift.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book - Unfriendly Layout
    Any cookbook edited by Maria Guarnaschelli and graced with a forward by Maida Heatter is bound to be something of value.There are plenty of simple cakes in this impressive volume that can be prepared without much difficulty along with some real showstoppers such as "Blueberry Swan Cake". The book is full of techniques, equipment and ingredient recommendations, ideas and lessons in cake decorating, and is a marvelous general reference work for bakers at all levels of experience.The section entitled "Temperatures and Tests for Sugar Syrup" is invaluable.The "Special Categories" section is also useful for determining which cakes are better made in advance, which are quick to pull together, and which are lower in fat and cholesterol (The author, Rose Beranbaum, is married to a physician). My favorite recipe in the book - one I use regularly, is the Sour Cream Ganache - probably the easiest recipe in the book.Its beauty is in its simplicity and, assuming the quality of chocolate is sublime, transports the palate to an Elysian experience.My only complaint about this otherwise first-rate manual, is the way the recipes are listed in a table format. Beranbaum uses the same format in her other baking books, but somehow I find it unfriendly and unappealing. This is of small importance overall and is a matter of personal preference - some readers may love it.Also, many of the recipes are just variations of others.In the recipe for Lemon Crepes Suzette, the first item on the recipe list is "1 recipe Chantilly Crepes".I find it easier to have each recipe stand on its own without having to go back and forth. It is obvious that this book has stood the test of time - even after 18 years, it is still being published in hardcover.Beranbaum is thorough and passionate without ever being pretentious.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Professional Pastry Chef
    I have owned this book for years and have refered back to it many times,the problem is that it becomes very confusing if you try to incorperate her advice in with what you are already doing.It seems that the only way most of her ideas work is if you from start to finish only follow her recipes.And what's with the "Rose factor" any one who has this book knows what I am talking about.There are definitely some great pieces of advice and nice little stories but all in all not my favorite. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    This book has some great recipes, very easy and yet the food tastes very sophisticated.The BBQ chicken and potato salad are the best I've ever had.The only negative is that there aren't many beef or pork options and seems a bit more female oriented but overall a good buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic!
    This book has it all--so beautiful, great recipes and Ina's friendly voice. I love cookbooks with photos and this is one of the best! All the recipes that I have tried are wonderful. This is one of my favorite books to give as a gift.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful cookbook/Easy to use
    This book is beautiful to look at; the full-size photos of the dish, the thick, glossy pages, and the additional notes next to the recipes make this a useful addition to any cook's collection.(It would make a perfect gift, too!)Yes, the recipes do call for extra-large eggs but, so what?! Buy a dozen!!I also especially liked the source lists at the end of the book.The recipes I've made all came out really well; there is something for everyone here. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bakery quality taste from your oven
    I was desperate for an amazing chocolate cake - as in I-will-do-anything-for-you-if-only-you-would-make-that-cake-again for my brother's wedding, having gone through all my professional pastry cookbooks with no results.I ran across this book and it had the perfect cake for my needs. Needless to say the cake came out perfectly and I even had a woman asking me what bakery I bought it from "she just *had* to have it for her next party.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great, Easy, Portable , and Fast. to make and eat.
    Ok, I can't really cook, and I really don't have time to try either.I've been looking for years for a cookbook with brain dead recipes that is cheap, easy to make, and most important to me, easy to carry.I'm a very busy person and needs to muti-task between work and school. I heard about Bisquick for years but never used it. I bought this book, sight unseen, because I thought it sounded too good to be true on how easy it is, that I would just give it a shot.This is the best book I ever got for realist recipes that I can make.I baked the Cheeseburger Pie, while I was cleaning my apt and doing homework.25 mins in the oven, it came out great. With the leftovers, I reheated it in the microwave and it came out good.This is a great book to give to somebody who can't or has very limited skills cooking or a college student, who has access to a oven or a toaster oven that can bake.If you want to make it a gift theme, give them the book, a pie pan, and a box of Bisquick. I can not wait till have I the chance to try out the other recipes but the best thing is that each recipe comes with a calorie count for each slice.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Betty Crocker Bisquick Impossibly Easy Pies
    Have always wanted all the Impossibly Easy Pies in one book and now I have it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Cookbook
    I've clipped & saved Impossible Pie recipes for years.When a friend bought the compiled Book and made one for a luncheon, I just had to find one.Finally did and I'm thrilled to have all the Impossible Pie recipes in one book!Two other friends and I formed a weight-loss support group so the nutritional break-down following each recipe is an absolute necessity for us.We all have a copy now and love it.
