One of the best cookbooks I have ever come across in my 73 years on this earth. Many recipes have become favorites and are being prepared over and over. Wonderful and interesting recipes, easy to prepare.
NOT your mother's Betty Crocker Cookbook. Phylo feta triangles, Chicken enchiladas, Cheese and parsley stuffed mushrooms, beef that is served like spirals, Sukiyaki, Hasselback potatoes, Raspberry sauce rice pudding, Orange almond torte, Swedish pancake-cake layered w applesauce and whipped custard, Almond paste yeast coffeecake you'd think was bakery made--recipes from Holland, African, Hungarian, Swedish, Swiss, Mexican, Scottish, Russian, Danish, Canadian, German, and all over. It's NO FAIL because nearly every dish is photographed and with illustrations when necessary. Anything but run-of-the-mill and no-one will be bringing to the potluck what you bring! A real gem.
This is my favorite kind of cookbook. The recipes are easy to understand and use basic ingredients, meaning you won't start with a can of cream of mushroom soup, or a boxed cake mix. I have made many of the recipes in this book and have found several favorites among them. It's a keeper!
