I'm very picky about the cook books that I buy in print. That's why unless I really fall in love with a cook book online, I rather buy them after getting a good look at them in store. Which is what happened with this one. I didn't even know about it prior to finding it at tj maxx but the minute I started flipping through I knew it was a keeper. It has almost all the classic comfort foods you could want, and real nice large photos. Just a great basic book to add to your shelf, full of recipes you know and want on hand.
