    I've owned this book since shortly after I began cooking for myself in the late seventies. It has answered thousands of questions, like "how to cook a pork roast" and enriched the food life of our family by providing many of our favorite recipes over the past 30 years. I turn to it still, for good ideas & old favorites.

    This is a great reference for cooking and baking of all kinds. While it's not a "pretty picture book," it has a huge variety of high-quality recipes.
