Taste of Home Recipes Across America: 735 of the Best Recipes from Across the Nation
by Taste of Home
Taste of Home has done it again! Another fantastic cookbook and great value! This hardback cookbook is a great addition to my collection. Taste of Home cookbooks are a favorite of mine. I can use the recipe knowing they have been thoroughly tested to make sure all runs smoothly in my preparation. I especially like this because I am not wasting my time or food investment throwing out a recipe flop.
Taste of Home Recipes Across America opens the door to a whole new experience in learning about and cooking family favorites from different regions in the U.S. that is different from your own. This way I wont get in a rut of just southern cooking. I love the fact that the recipes come from 100s of other cooks just like me all across the U.S., not just recipes from one person. This adds so much variety and creativity for my meals!
Northeast, South, Midwest, Southwest, West Regions are well represented with Main dishes, Sides and More, and Sweets. The color pictures of recipes are excellent. Recipe lay outs are easy to read and follow. I enjoyed the dishing out about food boxes on the pages that interesting information and history on different foods. Also included are color pictures from each region highlighting yearly special events and locations in those areas. This cookbook would be fun just to curl up in a chair with and browse through. There is so much to read and see!
The back of the book had two handy indexes. One listed the recipes in alphabetical order. The other was quite extensive and you could find the recipe by ingredient, regions, and type (appetizers, etc.). Finding it by ingredient is a bonus for me because I might have unthawed chicken and cant decide what to fix, or I am craving something with eggplant and havent a clue what to make. These features make the cookbook very user friendly. Positively a cookbook you will want to own!
I received this book free from FBS Media. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
