I found the title of this book to be misleading. I interpreted it to be a book about how to create my own family recipe book. However, it is actually a book chocked full of yummy recipes instead. Categories include: appetizers, breads, beverages, side dishes, vegetables, main dishes, desserts, etc. You'll find old standard recipes, as well as many contemporaries. The publisher describes the book as "the only recipe book you'll ever need," and I would say that statement is definitely on target due to the volume and variety of quality recipes included. It is very easy to navigate on KINDLE and is laid out in a very professional, user friendly format. I'm very glad to have stumbled across this gem!
