I have been a huge fan of Good Housekeeping cookbooks. The book we have from many years ago, is very used and still going strong - giving us instructions on how to prepare our first turkey, easy to find charts on how long to cook roasts and was the basis for much of what our cooking skills would develop into. Granted this is not presented as a general cookbook, but the primary help it offers is by smartphone or web sites, not with your recipes.
Recipes included are; appetizers and salads, soups and stews, chicken and poultry, beef, pork, veal, and lamb, fish and seafood, pasta and noodles, grains, rice and beans, grilling, casseroles and one pot meals, weeknight meals, meatless, breakfast and brunch, cookies and brownies, cakes, pies and puddings.
There are pages in the beginning with general information such as kitchen equipment and brief sections on how to set a table and dinner parties. Icons are included for 30 minutes or less, heart healthy, low calorie, make ahead, slow cooker. Pictures are included with most recipes, charts give volume and metric equivalents, food substitutions, equivalents and storage information, there is also an index.
My main complaint with the book is its construction. For a company that says it tests everything and gives a seal of approval, they sure slipped up here. When I received the book it had already broken out of one of its brackets, they are very small and will definitely not hold. The rings for the binder pages catch on the pages and tend to tear the pages when you turn them and there are gouges where the rings pop open and damage the inside cover...what a disappointment, no matter how good the recipes are - they really aren't much different from other cookbooks anyway.
