Pillsbury Kitchens' Cookbook is the best I have seen in 20 years. Not only are the pictures appetizing but the directions are easy to follow. Ingredients are readily available and the ringed binder allows the pages to lay flat. This book would make an excellent gift for someone needing help with all the basic recipes that are used year after year. The tabbed pages are a great help in finding recipes in a hurry. The variety in the 16 food categories is amazing. I haven't had a bad recipe yet from this book. Thanks Pillsbury for many years of good eating!
