I have always been a fan of Taste of Home magazines ever since my mother subscribed to them years ago; therefore I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review the Taste of Home Cooking School Cookbook! I love trying out new recipes; however some can be intimidating as they include ingredients I have never used before or a cooking style or technique that I am unfamiliar with. This cookbook included step by step instructions and tips for trying out new techniques! For example, I have never made stuffed burgers, but they sound so appealing to me to try, and there are instructions for this. Another thing that is included is steps for halving a chicken. The recipes are a great range of easy, simple recipes to more time consuming and "for company" and entertaining recipes. The cookbook is also filled with beautiful, colorful pictures of the recipes and I love looking through this and picking out recipes to try! I have made the Baked Ziti that is on page 187, this was an easy recipe and so delicious! I have a long list of recipes to try in the upcoming weeks! This is a must-have cookbook for every home as it is filled with a wide variety of recipes, filled with pictures of the foods and jam-packed with tips and advice!
