Book Description

Oct. 4 2011 Good Housekeeping
Here is the first ring-binder cookbook from the famed Good Housekeeping test kitchens--where every dish is triple-tested for ease, reliability, and great taste. These 375 delicious recipes, specially selected by the test kitchen as any home cook's essential go-to collection, are paired with irresistible color photographs and the magazine's unmatched kitchen know-how.
- Recipes include colorful icons to indicate at-a-glance low-calorie, heart-healthy, 30-minute meals, make-ahead, and slow-cooker choices. Chapters cover everything from appetizers to desserts, and there are special chapters on one-dish meals, vegetarian main meals, and fast weeknight meals.
- Includes smart phone tags that link to 35 helpful Good Housekeeping how-to cooking videos. The user simply scans the tags with a free phone app to view them.   For users without smart phones, URLs are also provided to view the videos on the web.
- Under the direction of Susan Westmoreland, The Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen buys approximately 17,000 pounds of food, performs 1,700 taste tests, and washes 77,000 dishes every year to make sure that every delicious recipe works in any oven or stovetop, with any brand of ingredients, no matter what.

5.0 out of 5 stars But for the size I am quite satisfied Dec 25 2012
Format:Ring-bound|Verified Purchase
I was taken aback when I saw the large parcel I was handled - I expected it to be the normal size of most cookbooks. But it does not change anything - the recipes will be just as good except I have a small kit chen !!!! But I can manage.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good Feb. 1 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Broken Binder Dec 12 2011
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Ring-bound|Verified Purchase
This is the second broken Good Housekeeping cookbook that I have purchased in the last week, the first one was purchased from a Barnes & Noble bookstore. With both cookbooks the binder rivets have pulled away from the book cover. The problem is manufacturing, the rivets are too small. The packaging was done properly so I would say that the quality control department is at fault. Too bad, the cookbook looks like a nice one. I will return the second one and try one more time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not stand up Jan. 13 2013
By Denise Fennell - Published on Amazon.com
My hubby got me this book because of my love of cooking. I have cooked 3 recipes from this book, and quite honestly do think I will be cooking anything else from it. The phrase "test kitchen" should have been a clue.

Of the recipes I tried both were over cooked, under seasoned and just plain blah. I have one of the original Good House Keeping books from my grandmother. Those recipes are great.

But this book falls flat. Did anyone actually cook these recipes before publication? I cannot imagine that each and every recipe was tested before it went to print. Such a travesty. You would be better off googling a recipe than use one from this publication.

I had such high hopes based on the original book. But this only offers gimmicks like QR codes which I thought would offer more on technique. Sadly not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to update the original... Oct. 26 2011
By Frankie Joey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Ring-bound|Verified Purchase
Just received my copy of this cookbook, and I immediately ordered a second as a hostess gift for my niece as a T-Day thank you gift. As hard as throwing away my old, truly beaten up original, the deed is done. This collection is unrivaled as a resource for today's kitchen...
