Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book Reviews

    Hands down, my most-used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I bought when I got my first apartment. I was poor and opted for the mass-market paperback version and over the past 30 years it has disintegrated. I recently decided to replace it with a fancy, shiny new spiral bound copy. I...

    Best cookbook for beginners. It has all the classic instructions and recipes that a new cook needs. A MUST have in any kitchen. The 3-ring binder version is by far the best. ...

    I have finally decided to get rid of this book. For the last month I've been using it to hold down the lid of my dog's dry food container so she won't get into it because the latch is broken. I kept wanting this to be a good, useful go-to book like our old Good Housekeeping Illustrated...

    I've found the majority of recipes in this new edition bland and flavorless, totally unlike my mom's edition from the late 60's. The low-fat, low-salt movement has taken its toll on this classic kitchen staple. For what it's worth, I cook with as little salt as I can get away with,...

    I don't know if perhaps it's me, but I there are a number of recipes in this book that I have had to tweak to make *ahem* BETTER. I am not a chef, but I do consider myself an amateur foodie of sorts. I had to adjust the muffin recipe (maybe I am just used to the super fabulousness of G...

    I was going to purchase this cookbook for my son last year for his birthday, because my copy has our family favourite "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" recipe in it, a classic that Better Homes has had in its index since it began. To my surprise, I discovered that the recipe no longer was carried...

    I think My Mom gave me this one as a graduation present. It's not quite as good as having her in the kitchen with me, but the recipes remind me of childhood: 3-bean salad, cowboy coffee cake, corn chowder, snickerdoodles, spanish rice and all the candy and canning recipes My Mom has a ...

    This is my go to book for baking, it has the best recipes for peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps, and fruit crisps. It also is a great cook book to have if you don't want to have 10 cook books (like I do) and it has enough of a variety to be your "only" cookbook, as these are tried an...

    My grandmother had one, my mother had one, my aunts had one (each), I had one - it was a traditional wedding present, my sister has one, sisters-in-law have one, I have one now, my daughter will have one again - she lost mine so that means the owner of the last house she lived in has o...

    This cookbook is excellent for a beginner cook. It explains the basics. I also have to admit that I love my 1970 edition better than the newer version. These recipes remind you of good times spent with family and friends. For me they were the beginning of cooking on my own. I now hav...

    I had a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook for about 35 years and it was stained & dog eared and my bible for roasting meats & poultry. I finally decided to treat myself to a brand new edition. So I went out and bought a new copy and tossed old faithful away. BIG MISTAKE! The ...

    This was my mom?s go-to cookbook when I was growing up. From it, I baked all of my first pies and quick breads when I was learning to cook as a young adult. It has some useful references (like how long to cook meat, measuring conversions, etc.). While I don?t cook these recipes all...

    Most of the recipies are fine, but a few times I've tried to make a breakfast dish and the oven temperature or baking time is WAY off, enough so that I got frustrated continuing to buy ingredients and make things for my family from this book that I let my golden retriever shred it. ...

    My most used cookbook, EVER. Though the recipes are simple, pretty much anything I can think of to cook or bake is in there. I recently had to buy a new copy since my first one was literally falling apart! ...

    I registered a book at BookCrossing.com! http://www.BookCrossing.com/journal/13243166 ...

    Very nice cookbook ...

    Best cookbook ever. ...

    I have had multiple copies of this book over the years, occasionally changing editions for updated recipes. It has always been a favorite. ...

    My all time favorite cookbook...but I have a 30 year old version. Love the old school recipes. Tonight: homemade pound cake! ...

    Of all my cookbooks - and I LOVE cookbooks!! - I would have thought this would be one of my favorites. Not even close. There are very few recipes in this book that I have made more than once. For example, don't even bother with the banana muffins. They tasted like a big lump of baking ...

    This was THE cook book in my mother's kitchen. The brownie recipe is everyone's old favorite just the way it is. I remember leafing through it on quiet days and imagining the meals I could cook. I don't currently own a copy, but I should add it to my collection. ...

    Great for a beginner with explanations of techniques and terms at the beginning. The book has been in family for ages though I have a later edition than the one my mother used. Very simple and easy to follow. General over all. ...

    A great updated version of an old standard. My favorite cookbook. I just have 2. ...

    Great book ...

    I have the 15th edition spiral bound book from 2010. This is an old standby cookbook for all cooks. There is just about any basic recipe in this book. ...

    Was a wedding gift. Great book with wonderful helpful tips and recipes. ...

    I like the glossy photos, but prefer the recipes in the older version. ...

    This cookbook is excellent for a beginner cook. It explains the basics. I also have to admit that I love my 1970 edition better than the newer version. These recipes remind you of good times spent with family and friends. For me they were the beginning of cooking on my own. I now hav...

    I had a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook for about 35 years and it was stained & dog eared and my bible for roasting meats & poultry. I finally decided to treat myself to a brand new edition. So I went out and bought a new copy and tossed old faithful away. BIG MISTAKE! The ...

    This was my mom?s go-to cookbook when I was growing up. From it, I baked all of my first pies and quick breads when I was learning to cook as a young adult. It has some useful references (like how long to cook meat, measuring conversions, etc.). While I don?t cook these recipes all...

    Hands down, my most-used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I bought when I got my first apartment. I was poor and opted for the mass-market paperback version and over the past 30 years it has disintegrated. I recently decided to replace it with a fancy, shiny new spiral bound copy. I...

    Best cookbook for beginners. It has all the classic instructions and recipes that a new cook needs. A MUST have in any kitchen. The 3-ring binder version is by far the best. ...

    I have finally decided to get rid of this book. For the last month I've been using it to hold down the lid of my dog's dry food container so she won't get into it because the latch is broken. I kept wanting this to be a good, useful go-to book like our old Good Housekeeping Illustrated...

    I've found the majority of recipes in this new edition bland and flavorless, totally unlike my mom's edition from the late 60's. The low-fat, low-salt movement has taken its toll on this classic kitchen staple. For what it's worth, I cook with as little salt as I can get away with,...

    I don't know if perhaps it's me, but I there are a number of recipes in this book that I have had to tweak to make *ahem* BETTER. I am not a chef, but I do consider myself an amateur foodie of sorts. I had to adjust the muffin recipe (maybe I am just used to the super fabulousness of G...

    I was going to purchase this cookbook for my son last year for his birthday, because my copy has our family favourite "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" recipe in it, a classic that Better Homes has had in its index since it began. To my surprise, I discovered that the recipe no longer was carried...

    I think My Mom gave me this one as a graduation present. It's not quite as good as having her in the kitchen with me, but the recipes remind me of childhood: 3-bean salad, cowboy coffee cake, corn chowder, snickerdoodles, spanish rice and all the candy and canning recipes My Mom has a ...

    My most used cookbook, EVER. Though the recipes are simple, pretty much anything I can think of to cook or bake is in there. I recently had to buy a new copy since my first one was literally falling apart! ...

    I registered a book at BookCrossing.com! http://www.BookCrossing.com/journal/13243166 ...

    Very nice cookbook ...

    Best cookbook ever. ...

    I have had multiple copies of this book over the years, occasionally changing editions for updated recipes. It has always been a favorite. ...

    My all time favorite cookbook...but I have a 30 year old version. Love the old school recipes. Tonight: homemade pound cake! ...

    Of all my cookbooks - and I LOVE cookbooks!! - I would have thought this would be one of my favorites. Not even close. There are very few recipes in this book that I have made more than once. For example, don't even bother with the banana muffins. They tasted like a big lump of baking ...

    This was THE cook book in my mother's kitchen. The brownie recipe is everyone's old favorite just the way it is. I remember leafing through it on quiet days and imagining the meals I could cook. I don't currently own a copy, but I should add it to my collection. ...

    Great for a beginner with explanations of techniques and terms at the beginning. The book has been in family for ages though I have a later edition than the one my mother used. Very simple and easy to follow. General over all. ...

    A great updated version of an old standard. My favorite cookbook. I just have 2. ...

    Hands down, my most-used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I bought when I got my first apartment. I was poor and opted for the mass-market paperback version and over the past 30 years it has disintegrated. I recently decided to replace it with a fancy, shiny new spiral bound copy. I...

    Best cookbook for beginners. It has all the classic instructions and recipes that a new cook needs. A MUST have in any kitchen. The 3-ring binder version is by far the best. ...

    I have finally decided to get rid of this book. For the last month I've been using it to hold down the lid of my dog's dry food container so she won't get into it because the latch is broken. I kept wanting this to be a good, useful go-to book like our old Good Housekeeping Illustrated...

    I've found the majority of recipes in this new edition bland and flavorless, totally unlike my mom's edition from the late 60's. The low-fat, low-salt movement has taken its toll on this classic kitchen staple. For what it's worth, I cook with as little salt as I can get away with,...

    I don't know if perhaps it's me, but I there are a number of recipes in this book that I have had to tweak to make *ahem* BETTER. I am not a chef, but I do consider myself an amateur foodie of sorts. I had to adjust the muffin recipe (maybe I am just used to the super fabulousness of G...

    I was going to purchase this cookbook for my son last year for his birthday, because my copy has our family favourite "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" recipe in it, a classic that Better Homes has had in its index since it began. To my surprise, I discovered that the recipe no longer was carried...

    I think My Mom gave me this one as a graduation present. It's not quite as good as having her in the kitchen with me, but the recipes remind me of childhood: 3-bean salad, cowboy coffee cake, corn chowder, snickerdoodles, spanish rice and all the candy and canning recipes My Mom has a ...

    This is my go to book for baking, it has the best recipes for peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps, and fruit crisps. It also is a great cook book to have if you don't want to have 10 cook books (like I do) and it has enough of a variety to be your "only" cookbook, as these are tried an...

    My grandmother had one, my mother had one, my aunts had one (each), I had one - it was a traditional wedding present, my sister has one, sisters-in-law have one, I have one now, my daughter will have one again - she lost mine so that means the owner of the last house she lived in has o...

    This cookbook is excellent for a beginner cook. It explains the basics. I also have to admit that I love my 1970 edition better than the newer version. These recipes remind you of good times spent with family and friends. For me they were the beginning of cooking on my own. I now hav...

    I had a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook for about 35 years and it was stained & dog eared and my bible for roasting meats & poultry. I finally decided to treat myself to a brand new edition. So I went out and bought a new copy and tossed old faithful away. BIG MISTAKE! The ...

    My most used cookbook, EVER. Though the recipes are simple, pretty much anything I can think of to cook or bake is in there. I recently had to buy a new copy since my first one was literally falling apart! ...

    I have had multiple copies of this book over the years, occasionally changing editions for updated recipes. It has always been a favorite. ...

    My all time favorite cookbook...but I have a 30 year old version. Love the old school recipes. Tonight: homemade pound cake! ...

    Of all my cookbooks - and I LOVE cookbooks!! - I would have thought this would be one of my favorites. Not even close. There are very few recipes in this book that I have made more than once. For example, don't even bother with the banana muffins. They tasted like a big lump of baking ...

    This was THE cook book in my mother's kitchen. The brownie recipe is everyone's old favorite just the way it is. I remember leafing through it on quiet days and imagining the meals I could cook. I don't currently own a copy, but I should add it to my collection. ...

    Great for a beginner with explanations of techniques and terms at the beginning. The book has been in family for ages though I have a later edition than the one my mother used. Very simple and easy to follow. General over all. ...

    A great updated version of an old standard. My favorite cookbook. I just have 2. ...

    Great book ...

    I have the 15th edition spiral bound book from 2010. This is an old standby cookbook for all cooks. There is just about any basic recipe in this book. ...

    Was a wedding gift. Great book with wonderful helpful tips and recipes. ...

    I like the glossy photos, but prefer the recipes in the older version. ...

    Good for basic information. ...

    This was my mom?s go-to cookbook when I was growing up. From it, I baked all of my first pies and quick breads when I was learning to cook as a young adult. It has some useful references (like how long to cook meat, measuring conversions, etc.). While I don?t cook these recipes all...

    Most of the recipies are fine, but a few times I've tried to make a breakfast dish and the oven temperature or baking time is WAY off, enough so that I got frustrated continuing to buy ingredients and make things for my family from this book that I let my golden retriever shred it. ...

    My most used cookbook, EVER. Though the recipes are simple, pretty much anything I can think of to cook or bake is in there. I recently had to buy a new copy since my first one was literally falling apart! ...

    Hands down, my most-used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I bought when I got my first apartment. I was poor and opted for the mass-market paperback version and over the past 30 years it has disintegrated. I recently decided to replace it with a fancy, shiny new spiral bound copy. I...

    Best cookbook for beginners. It has all the classic instructions and recipes that a new cook needs. A MUST have in any kitchen. The 3-ring binder version is by far the best. ...

    I have finally decided to get rid of this book. For the last month I've been using it to hold down the lid of my dog's dry food container so she won't get into it because the latch is broken. I kept wanting this to be a good, useful go-to book like our old Good Housekeeping Illustrated...

    I've found the majority of recipes in this new edition bland and flavorless, totally unlike my mom's edition from the late 60's. The low-fat, low-salt movement has taken its toll on this classic kitchen staple. For what it's worth, I cook with as little salt as I can get away with,...

    I don't know if perhaps it's me, but I there are a number of recipes in this book that I have had to tweak to make *ahem* BETTER. I am not a chef, but I do consider myself an amateur foodie of sorts. I had to adjust the muffin recipe (maybe I am just used to the super fabulousness of G...

    I was going to purchase this cookbook for my son last year for his birthday, because my copy has our family favourite "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" recipe in it, a classic that Better Homes has had in its index since it began. To my surprise, I discovered that the recipe no longer was carried...

    I think My Mom gave me this one as a graduation present. It's not quite as good as having her in the kitchen with me, but the recipes remind me of childhood: 3-bean salad, cowboy coffee cake, corn chowder, snickerdoodles, spanish rice and all the candy and canning recipes My Mom has a ...

    This is my go to book for baking, it has the best recipes for peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps, and fruit crisps. It also is a great cook book to have if you don't want to have 10 cook books (like I do) and it has enough of a variety to be your "only" cookbook, as these are tried an...

    My grandmother had one, my mother had one, my aunts had one (each), I had one - it was a traditional wedding present, my sister has one, sisters-in-law have one, I have one now, my daughter will have one again - she lost mine so that means the owner of the last house she lived in has o...

    Very nice cookbook ...

    Best cookbook ever. ...

    I have had multiple copies of this book over the years, occasionally changing editions for updated recipes. It has always been a favorite. ...

    My all time favorite cookbook...but I have a 30 year old version. Love the old school recipes. Tonight: homemade pound cake! ...

    Of all my cookbooks - and I LOVE cookbooks!! - I would have thought this would be one of my favorites. Not even close. There are very few recipes in this book that I have made more than once. For example, don't even bother with the banana muffins. They tasted like a big lump of baking ...

    This was THE cook book in my mother's kitchen. The brownie recipe is everyone's old favorite just the way it is. I remember leafing through it on quiet days and imagining the meals I could cook. I don't currently own a copy, but I should add it to my collection. ...

    Great for a beginner with explanations of techniques and terms at the beginning. The book has been in family for ages though I have a later edition than the one my mother used. Very simple and easy to follow. General over all. ...

    A great updated version of an old standard. My favorite cookbook. I just have 2. ...

    Great book ...

    I have the 15th edition spiral bound book from 2010. This is an old standby cookbook for all cooks. There is just about any basic recipe in this book. ...

    Was a wedding gift. Great book with wonderful helpful tips and recipes. ...
