The "standard" in my collection 7 Feb. 2005
By DarkMoon - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was my very first cookbook, and I've never found its equal. The recepies may not be as flash as some of the newer, trendier chef cookbooks, but this one has everything you need to begin cooking for yourself, right through to medium level recepies. From explanations of what "julienne" and "caramelize" mean, to what spices work with what foods, to how to organize a buffet table, to how to eat a balanced meal. Recepies for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, drinks, appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, etc. And best of all, how to cook most any food without any preperation, spices, herbs, or fuss! Want to have a plain meal of steak, beans and potatoes? This book will tell you how. Want to have a plate of the best beef stroganoff you'll ever taste? It's in there as well. A must have for every kitchen, I use it almost daily.

more than 10 years later and still in heavy use!!! 23 Nov. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bouth this one when I first moved out of the house, and my Mom confiscated her 1962 edition. Of all the cookbooks I have bought since then, this one gets used at least weekly!!! AT one point I wanted my bookshelf to look "cooler" so I bought Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." Betty Crocker still wins hands down in quality and variety of recipes (not to mention his book fell apart after a few uses.

Buy this edition or any of the newer editions that followed, and you will never go wrong! And as corny as it sounds, the notebook style is a great idea, I have stuffed mine full of all kinds of recipes, it is like the book that continues to grow with me.

Best Book for the New Cook! 19 Nov. 2009
By A. M. Knoeferl - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book taught me to cook, and probably saved my marriage! I got this as a gift at my bridal shower, but carelessly tucked it away. In the first few months of marriage, I endeavored to begin stews, roasts, and souflees when I got home from work at 5:30 (yikes!). After many tearful (and hungry!) nights throwing away meals we couldn't afford, I rediscovered this treasure. Cheaper than therapy, this book teaches, explains, and educates. Nearly 19 years later, it is the most careworn of my collection. It comes out every Sunday, Christmas, and sometimes just for reference. I will buy this for each of my daughters, and as an inspirational gift for the kitchen sisterhood in culinary dispair.

an updated version of a classic 26 Sept. 2010
By L. B. Taylor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
You can't go wrong with a Betty Crocker cookbook. My mom taught me how to cook and bake using an earlier version of this cookbook several decades ago. It may not contain the healthiest recipes but I know from experience that many of them are 'good eats'. This version contains some amended and new recipes that my older version didn't have. I love my earlier cookbook with its stains and pencil marks but appreciate having a newer edition with other information. Be prepared to jot down notes and check off what your family loves to eat.
