3-0 out of 5 stars Don't like the binder...
I am a collector of taste of home cookbooks. When I saw this new release I pre-ordered it. while I enjoyed the recipes I found the binder to be cumbersome. The pages are not easy to turn, and the spine was dented. The page stock is thin and not durable. I think I prefer the standard format cookbooks.
5-0 out of 5 stars Real food, for real people packed w/ info extras.
I have long been a fan of the Taste of Home magazine & would collect their annual "Yearbooks" of recipes. Naturally I had to add this to my collection and was pleasantly surpised by the addition of a conversion and substitution chart on the inside cover. The lay out of the book itself is orderly and in each section includes a wealth of information on everything from different cheeses, meat preparation, utensils, what goes well with what etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT COOKBOOK!
I don't know if I could live without this cookbook.I have the Entertaining version as well and love it just as well.We've tried over half of the recipes and there hasn't been one that we didn't like.HIGHLY RECOMMEND purchasing this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars The Book That Started a Revolution
With five kids and two working parents, our family depended heavily on convenience foods.We had a slow cooker tucked way back under the cabinets, but it saw use only once or twice a year, usually for a dip or somesuch during the holidays.Our dinners were expensive, low quality and somehow unsatisfying.
4-0 out of 5 stars Own It, Now Buying for My Daughter
I have had this book since it was released.It is one of the best cookbooks I own.The format is much like a tried and true "church family cookbook".My daughter is away in her first apartment and while she is an avid baker, she has never been interested in cooking.This books will provide she and her roommates with great meals! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed to Please
I enjoy the PBS series "America's Test Kitchen," so when I received this book as a Christmas gift last year I was very excited.Now, almost a year later, I have cooked my way through scores of the recipes in this cookbook and there is not a dud in the bunch.This book takes basic, American fare and boil it down to it's most essential (and flavorful parts), allowing you to cook tasty favorites.My only caveat is that is you are looking for quick meals, this may not be the best choice--many of the recipes are quite time consuming.However, if you only want one cookbook in your kitchen, this is the one!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Cookbook Ever!
I've purchased a ton of cookbooks over the years I've been cooking at home.However, once I purchased this cookbook all of the other cookbooks have become covered in dust.The only exceptions would be a handful of other Cook's Illustrated recipes not covered here in the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook.If you are a cooking enthusiast or a new beginner this is the cookbook for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much better than your mother's Betty Crocker cookbook

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Gourmet recipes
I cameacross the raw movement while on a juice fast, I have been juicing for several years now.When I found the book, the green juice recipes are worth the buy in themselves.Then I finally got a dehydrator and voila!Deliciouso!The snacks and the gourmet meals are far beyond what I have been doing, (3 months raw)even the salad dressings are amazing.If you have been spoiled with gourmet flavors then this is your book.Please note that the preparations are sometimes lengthy but well worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book, gorgeous food!
I love this book!After browsing through it, I'm totally inspired to create raw food!Some of the recipes look a bit tricky, but overall the food sounds incredible.I am also very impressed by all the information they have about various health topics (lecithin, cutting out dairy) and their own personal stories and advice.I'm a raw food novice, but I can already tell that this is the best raw food book I own.As Sarma says, "Eat raw, live long!"

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE this book
The recipes are great.Of all the raw food recipes I have tried these are the most flavourful and appetising.I love their wit and how they really do bring raw food eating into the real world.Taking the raw food diet out of the underground of what is viewed as fanatics and bringing it to the mainstream, fitting it into anyones life.You do not have to be a raw foodist to love their recipes.Many raw recipes that I have tried in the past have been less than exciting, not really enjoyable, and bland and boring.But these were all the opposite, full flavour, fulfilling, satisfying, indulgent. My first bite of the lasagna took my breath away.I had no idea that so much flavour could be packed into one bite and leave you with no guilt or heavy feeling, but just the opposite, give you energy.And the colours!!The colours are so vibrant, unmutted by cooking.Staying raw would not be hard with these recipes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Time saver for a busy medical student!
I'm a pre-clinical medical student, and often don't have time to mess around with dinner when I get home, especially during exam times.Using this book, I've been able to eat really well on the one night's worth of cooking I did at the beginning of the semester!I tried the spinach lasagna and beef stroganoff recipes this time around, and have been really happy with both of them.I find that I want to alter the recipes a little bit, but I think that has more to do with my needs and tastes than any problem with the recipes themselves.
5-0 out of 5 stars Yumo!!!!!
I have done Dream Dinners numerous times & have also frozen my own meals from time to time.I've tried numerous other cookbooks but none compared to the recipes this one had to offer.They were similar to the Dream Dinners meals in my opinion.I attempted to put some in the freezer this weekend & am happy to say I spent about 3 hours & was able to sock away 10 meals.So far we are very happy with the results.I will definitely be grabbing this cookbook again.

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!
I absolutely love this cookbook!The recipes are fantastic and simple to prepare, yet taste like you spent more time on them.I like the fact that even the preparation to them to the freezer isn't very involved.As a working mother of 2 under 2, this is a necessity.I'm recommending it to all my friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Culinary Arts.
One of the many neat features of studying at Cornell University is that, even if you're not enrolled in its famous School of Hotel Administration, you can attend one of the cooking and wine tasting classes organized especially for non-Hotel School students, and get at least a flavor of the five star culinary instruction provided by the chefs teaching at that school. (That is, you can do so if you're willing to get up an extra hour or two early on the morning of non-Hotel School student enrollment, and if you're lucky enough to beat the crowds or at least slip in as a substitute participant.) In addition to numerous recipes and pieces of valuable advice, information and memories -- particularly of the last night, on which we had to put together a four-course meal, fine dining style, complete with menu, garnishments and perfectly laid table -- Cornell's "cooking class" has enriched my kitchen by two items I have since found it very hard to do without: A professional grade chef's knife, and Sarah Labensky's and Alan Hause's "On Cooking," which we used as our textbook.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource
While this is essentially a textbook for culinary students, On Cooking is still very accessible.I would reccommend this book to any amateur wanting to learn more about the concepts behind cooking, rather than just reading and following a recipe.

I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for any slow-cooker-loving vegetarian!
I love this cookbook! There are some really great recipes in it for every event, and every situation. The recipes are also comprised of everyday ingredients, not elaborate or exotic ingredients that no one has. Great stuff! A must-have for any slow-cooker-loving vegetarian!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great vegitarian crock pot book
The recipes are good, especially the potatoe and pesto dish. I did not like the dish called Breakfast bread pudding,due to the fact I thought the flavors contradicted each other.

I love this book so much. I checked it out from the library 5 times and am now ordering it finally. The beer can chicken is the best in there. I have tried a couple recipes and love them all. Great source for those of us wondering how exactly to do something on the grill-very informative!

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific for the Novice or Expert!!!
This book has everything from temperature control and technique to rub and sauce recipes.It covers all the bases from porterhouse to leg of lamb to veggies to tofu, even pizza!!!I have purchased this for myself, as well as for gifts for experienced grillers and beginners.They all love it!It also takes into consideration both charcoal and gas grills.One of the best grill books I have found.

5-0 out of 5 stars A GREAT BARBECUE BOOK.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL BOOK. YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES MY HUSBAND AND I RUINED MEAT AND VEGETABLES. WE ALWAYS HAD THE HEAT TOO HIGH OR LEFT THINGS ON THE GRILL FOR TOO LONG MAKING SURE THAT EVERYTHING WAS COOKED THOROUGHLY. I EVEN SENT AWAY FOR THE THERMOMETER THAT YOU COULD GET PAYING FOR SHIPPING AND HANDLING ONLY. I RECEIVED THE THERMOMETER PRETTY QUICK TOO AND IT WORKS GREAT. I HOPE THIS HELPS ANYONE THINKING OF BUYING ONE. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Professional Encyclopedia of Haute Cuisine
For this new translation, the dust jacket proudly proclaims 'Here, for the first time, is presented to the English-speaking public the entire translation of...'The copy on these dust jackets is usually just ad copy written by the sales department, and I would not take what it says too seriously. When I was much younger, I had the Crown version of this book as I happily puttered around in my kitchen. I no longer have it, and am unable to verify claims as to the superiority of this new translation over the older version (according to the editorial page, this translation dates to 1979 and is based on the 1921 French edition).
5-0 out of 5 stars The Chef of Kings
August Escoffier was known as "The king of chefs and the chef of kings". This book is indispensible to anyone who is serious about the culinary arts. Escoffier defined the benchmark for classic French cooking from which most western cooking gets its roots, much like all forms of modern music from rock to country have their roots in classical music.You can find essences of classic French cooking in even the lowliest diner fare.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic
I am very annoyed that people who do not have any idea of what this book is, have the audacity to rate it. If you made the mistake of buying this book thinking it was a cookbook that is your own fault! Please don't rate Escoffiers culinary writings based on your own stupidity.

5-0 out of 5 stars My go-to for new dinners
I am recently married and love to cook, and of the several new cookbooks I got, this is the one I use the most, especially for "real life" cooking. It's organized well, so I know where to look if I want to cook chicken, meat, pasta, fish, cookies, something in the crock pot, etc. Each recipe I've tried has turned out well, and has been worth the effort involved. I bought a copy for my sister, so now I'm constantly telling her "Try that spicy chicken and rice bake, we loved it."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Starter & Basic Cookbook
I received this cook book as a wedding present 3 years ago and have been very pleased with it.

I love this cook book! It has TONS of great recipes. Everything from cakes, pies, and breads, to pastas and various meat and vegetable dishes.It even has a recipe for homemade pasta. I was really amazed at how many great recipes it contains. Plus, I know I can trust it because Homes and Gardens tests their recipes. So, far I have only tried a few but every one has turned out great! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars I liked it
I had to buy this book for my Quantity Foods course as a part of my Dietetics major. I actually liked the book, and I am going to keep it for later use. I thought the book was organized very well. Some of the charts in Chapter 2 and 5 that we used quite often were a little hard to find (because there are so many!).
5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! A must have for all chefs
I had seen this book at a friends business and thought it was good.Since I have ordered and received it I have had the chance to really review the contents and find it one book that I can use daily.The CD rom is also fantastic in the number of recipes it contains.One nice feature is that you can size the recipes to what you need.Another great plus.Well worth the money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy and tasty
I have only made a few recipes so far- the delicious and easy corn soup, the crispy chicken with the balsamic tomatoes and the smoothies....and the one eyed jacks!She makes the recipes easy to make, simple and homegrown- they are delicious!

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
Let me preface my review by saying that I'm a vegetarian. I have Sara Foster's first cookbook and absolutely love it. The pages are stained from use and every recipe I prepare is a big hit--scones, cookies, eggplant parm... This book however is lacking in vegetarian options (even sides that can be used as main dishes) and I don't find the desserts or breakfast items as exciting. I would highly recommend her first book however.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great kitchen companion
I have an addiction to cookbooks, and this one of my top 5 favorite ones.It has wonderful photos and gives great hints on how to make substitutions, short cuts and cooking methods, and the recipes are very easy to follow.I am not one who favors complicated recipes, and while there are a few in this book, they are not so overwhelming that I would not be able to find the ingredients or never attempt to try them.I only hope Sarah and her stores release another book in the years to come! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential of Food Safety & Sanitation
I am using your textbook for a class I teach for the Oklahoma City/County Health Department.I Love It!The class I teach is the Food Service Operator's Certification Course that is required by all food service operators in this county. I am a Registered Dietitian who is contracted by Oklahoma State University-OKC and Francis Tuttle to teach the class for the health department. It is kind of a community service offered by the two schools. I have only been teaching the class for three years now, and by far your book is the best. 5-0 out of 5 stars Meets the training needs for Food Handlers
As an instructor who teaches Food Safety classes to front-line employees, I find this text an excellent resource. It is comprehensive yet still easy-to-understand, a difficult combination to achieve for some of the technical aspects of foodborne illness, pathogens, etc. The cartoon-style drawings add to the enjoyment. I have had many trainees who share these positive comments. Only negative comment would be to include color photos instead of the old, grainy B&W.5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent food safety training resource
Essentials of Food Safety & Sanitation is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to help food workers produce safe food. In my job as editor of a food safety-oriented newsletter, I review and have access toa lot of training materials, but "Essentials" is the one I referto the most for current, reliable information. ...

Editorial Review

Is your fridge filled with takeout containers, and your oven used for storage? If you answered these questions with an emphatic "Yes," Sandra Lee'sRead more

3-0 out of 5 stars Because "White Trash Cuisine" was already taken...it's "Semi-Homemade Cooking"
I admit that my review title was unfair and harsh.As was the opening remark I was going to borrow from P.J. O'Rourke: "...the only reason you would cook this would be to convince your ex-wife (or parole officer) that you were trying to live like a human being."
4-0 out of 5 stars Try some of these, they're good, they're fast!
After reading a few of the reviews of this cookbook, I was a little confused. I bought Semi-Homemade Cooking without reading any reviews, and I'm glad I did. I'm a regular old mom and housewife, and one of my main goals every day is to make a delicious, hearty meal for my hard-working husband to appreciate when he gets home. I can't make a from-scratch masterpiece every day (especially with a one-year-old running around), so that is where this cookbook comes in handy!
3-0 out of 5 stars Advertising
This book really isn't about eating on a budget or nutritious food.The way I see it, it is all about advertising.While this may have changed with the 2nd release of the book, the first release is just pages of her brand loyalties. Do we really need to use her brand recommendations for butter?Or saltines?Come on!

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent first choice
I fail to understand the complaints of two previous reviewers. This beautiful glossy volume is an excellent compendium of previosly publisned Cook's Illustratedrecipes. In style and format it would make an excellent first choice for anyone wishing to be introduced to a selection of the best of the best recipes from America's Teet Kitchen (i. e. Cook's Illustrated) without the tediousness of having to wade through lengthy descriptions of how the recipes were arrived at.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but consists entirely of previously published recipes
This book is a compilation of recipes from other America's Test Kitchen publications that have been released within the last 1-2 years, including their magazines (Cook's Country and Cook's Illustrated) and books (The Best Light Recipe, The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, Best American Side Dishes, and The Best 30-Minute Recipe). Above each recipe there is even a thumbnail image of the publication in which the recipe originally appeared.Scattered throughout the book are tutorials (such as "Rice and Grains 101" and "Pie Pastry 101"), equipment reviews, and taste tests (similar to what appears in Cooks Illustrated Magazine).
3-0 out of 5 stars Recipes are a dime a dozen ...
I subscribe to Cooks Illustrated, owned season 4 and 5 DVDs and have bought all their previous 6 books under the America's Test Kitchen title. This is my 7th. I used to subscribe to Cooks Country but found that to be amateurish and have since discontinued.
