One of my favorite cookbooks, I've cooked several of the recipes and they are all great! Lots of good home cooking in here, comfort food and general all around good family recipes. I especially love the roast pork recipe, the bread recipes, and of course the desserts. Whether you are a seasoned pro or a newbie to cooking, I think there is something for everyone here. The recipes are easy to follow, the pictures are beautiful, and I like the chef's notes too. Great cookbook, I highly recommend it.

This book has recipes that spiced just right and when served brings smiles, nods and praise for the cook. Have enjoyed making many of them ~ my family has enjoyed eating them!

I wanted to like this cookbook. I had high hopes after flipping through it. Unfortunately after I tried 3 recipes, I found that I was unimpressed with all of them. I have never had as dismal results from any other cookbook. All three recipes tended towards the bland, and I found them to be overly time consuming, particularly the no-knead rolls (bland, rubbery & no less work than your standard roll recipe) and the matzo ball soup. After the third failure I decided it was time to move on to better cookbooks.
