It is not everyday that I run across a cookbook I can truly rave about, but this is it! I can honestly say I will use every recipe in this book! They are home cooking that all my family will love and not filled with strange ingredients. The chapters are arranged by regions of the United States. I...

For those not wanting to read my detail and lengthy review this book is a winner. It's filled with a multitude of delicious classic American dishes from all over the country. It also serves as a great American food history textbook, with almost every page having historical write ups related to ac...

This is a great book with beautiful pictures. The recipes are the things we all love using ingredients that are easy to find. I am sure I will use it very many times.

I've never reviewed a non-fiction book, nor a cookbook either.
In the past five years (since our twins were born), I've done a lot more cooking at home and less eating out. I'm always on the lookout for new recipes for myself & my husband, as well as teaching our children variety and trying d...

Martha has outdone herself in her latest cookbook! I don't really buy books anymore, but I think I'll need to make an exception.
One of my all time favorite cookbooks is The Martha Stewart Baking Handbook. I remember I was in grad school when it came out and I was super poor, but when I received a...

Martha hit it OUT of the park!!! This book made me drool. The recipes are beautifully written, approachable (shocker!), and accompanied by mouthwatering pictures. The background information is very helpful and as far as I can tell, spot on. My region definitely matched what I expected to see (the...

Another new addition to my cookbook collection. The kids saw this and asked me to get it, and I'm glad that I did. This book has lots of good, familiar food to try out, such as her home made corn dogs (not something I like, but the kids love it and I would like to make a homemade, healthier versi...

I think she should be ashamed of herself. Read Clementine Paddleford's "How American Eats" instead. Overly common recipes and not even the best versions you could find for say...meatloaf or apple pie. The photography was lush, as ever in most cookbooks, but the recipes? I made the chicken salad a...

It is good as are all of Martha's things. She has recipes that are All-American, and then divides the country into Regional areas. She tells the "backstory"
I'm doing that myself in my own book, only the recipes are all personal and I don't cover the whole country, but I do go back farther in his...

I'm not a "drink-the-kool-aid" Martha Stewart fan, but this cook book is a good one. It's got all the typical good-old American recipes in it. Not fancy - but family fare. Stuff you want to make at the lake house or for Sunday Family Dinner. I think this would make a great wedding shower present...
