Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book
Jennifer Darling (Editor)
When I got married 8 years ago , the only thing I could cook was spaghetti ( in a jar). THIS BOOK is what taught me how to cook everything! It is not only a book of recipes but shows cooking techniques, what to have in your kitchen and SO MUCH MORE! This book is an absolute must have for every bride or anyone that wants to really learn how to cook. The way that this is bound and has plastic coated pages is great too because cooking gets messy especially when you a learning. No, I don’t think this is gourmet stuff and if that is what you want then maybe you should look elsewhere.. But for REAL COoking .. This is the standard of cookbooks. I thank you Better Homes and Gardens for teaching me to COOK and my husband thanks you too!
