The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook is an all-purpose, no-frills, complete cooking reference that has been a staple in American kitchens since the first edition was published in 1930. The famed red plaid cookbook has become a symbol of trust in the kitchen, and there are now Better Homes and Gardens brand books available on almost every popular cookery subject. The key to the success of the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbooks lies in the reliability of their recipes; lots of easy-to-make crowd pleasing dishes and traditional “heartland” favorites.
This latest edition has a whopping 1,200 recipes (half of which are new), a good selection of traditional classics (Chicken Divan Casserole, Welsh Rabbit) along with some new low-fat dishes for a more health conscious cook. The basics are all amply covered—canning and freezing, breads, cookies and desserts, fish and shellfish, meat and poultry, soups and stews, along with new chapters on Pasta, Beans, Rice and Grains, and Grilling.
The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook is a reliable, basic sourcebook for home cooks who have limited time (or skills) for cooking, and want sensible meals fast.
