This is the best cookbook I have ever used. Gives the basics for everything. I have used this cookbook since I was a teenager. My mother's copy was from the sixties, she wouldn't part with it and bought my copy in 1981 copyright 1979, I have used it so much that it is literally in pieces. I have six children and would like to give each of them a copy. I have bought many cookbooks over the years and this is the only one that I have kept and consistently used.

Marion Cunningham's brilliant revision of this classic home cooking reference addresses "good everyday cooking." Cunningham states that "every meal should be a small celebration," and she eases the preparation of those celebrations with clear, straightforward instructions and hints on how to make the most of every meal through beautiful presentation and balanced nutrition. The chapter on microwaved foods is clear and presents recipes that are simple and taste great. Cunningham's work especially shines in the chapters on baking, as might be expected from her work onThe Fannie Farmer Baking BookandThe Breakfast Book.Your piecrusts will always be crisp and flaky under her tutelage.
