This is an absolutely fabulous book, even if you are not a vegetarian! Each page is a new recipe and every recipe has pictures of the finished product
as well as the preparation process. Plus it has the break down of the nutritional information! Best.Cookbook.Ever!
This was one of the first cookbooks that I ever bought. I got it in a set with the Better Homes and Garden New Cook Book and The Pilsbury Cookbook, but I find that I use the Fannie Farmer far
more often than the other two. In fact, I have used it so much that it is now in two halves with some loose pages shoved in the middle. One of the things that I really like about this book is
that it has conversion tables, plus it covers cooking and baking basics. And there is a canning section!!
This book is the ultimate bread book. It explains not only how to bake bread using the bread machine, it explains the whole process of making various breads.
It covers various ingredients and the effect that they have on the bread. It even explains how to create your own starters! There are beautiful pictures with step-by-step visuals on how to make each bread.
Plus it has a recipe for just about every variety of bread that you may ever want to bake; and they have all been fabulous recipes!
For cutting this rock hard squash in half, make a shallow slit in it where you intend to cut it in half, pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes, get a chef's knife firmly into the squash and pound it onto the counter.
