BH&G paperback New cookbook
This is great little book for cooking. There are so many good recipes, tried and true. Worth getting one. This one I purchased is to replace the one I have been using for some 25 years. The one I just bought was inexpensive, in very good condition, and the merchant sent it to me quickly and effeciently. Nice.

Wedding shower gift.
I married my husband 50 years ago, and it has been for the most part a really good marriage. I received this cook book as a bridal shower gift. I knew nothing about cooking, although my mother was a accomplished cook, I just never had any interest in learning. However necessity will soon take over and you must learn or you will have some real problems in a marriage. This cook book became a bible to me. Over the years my original copy became torn & worn. Some whole sections were almost unuseable. I was so very happy in finding a like new copy on your web site, and I so appreciate the wide array of books you offer. I use you to order my Grand daughters text books for college. Thank You

Great cookbook. Gave same book to all my adult children and stocking up on them for when grandchildren can work a stove.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-07-01 A chapter on Grilling and one devoted exclusively to Pasta are among the additions to the fresh and updated 11th edition of the famed red plaid cookbook from the nation's heartland. Also new are half of the 1200 recipes, symbols for quick and low-fat dishes, 450+ photographs and individual nutrition analyses. Still in place, however, is the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen reliability that has made this basic and comprehensive guide a staple in millions of American kitchens since the 1930 first edition. The lead chapter, Cooking Basics, covers ingredients, techniques and menu plans. The following 20 chapters are arranged alphabetically by main ingredients (Beans, Rice & Grains; Meat) or course (Appetizers & Snacks; Desserts) and are marked (in the ring-bound edition) by color differentiated tabs. Tradition and today's thinking coexist comfortably here, with the recipes for Grits and for Cheese and Basil Polenta with Tomato-Basil Sauce appearing side by side. There's a Pepper-Lime Chicken a few steps away from Chicken Divan Casserole; Chocolate-Cherry frozen Yogurt next to a trifle recipe, and Chili Rellenos Casserole following a venerable Welsh Rabbit. Recipes calling for fresh ingredients healthfully and sensibly prepared and notably straightforward instructions on masterfully designed, inviting and family cook-friendly pages mark this comprehensive collection. 855,000 first printing; $1 million ad/promo.
