I just purchased the Better Homes and Gardens NEW Cook Book...Limited Edition Breast Cancer Awareness edition and I really like it. My first cookbook was the orginal Cook Book by BH&G, the Red and White checked one...and this one is an improvement on an old favorite. It came with a free one year subscription to BH&G magazine...a big plus because I really like the magazine.
The NEW Cook Book has many of the old tried and true recipes as well as some contemporary favorites for entertaining. I like the size of it, it's large and well laid out, with more chapters than most cookbooks, so it's easier to find exactly the types of recipes you need. The book has a preface with many famous chefs giving their favorite recipes and telling how breast cancer has impacted their lives. It is touching and a feel good read.
Personally, I try to support breast cancer efforts any chance that I get. My mother-in-law passed away last year from breast cancer, so it is very near to my heart. She was a wonderful woman that I'm so happy to have known in my lifetime. I plan to buy this cookbook for my cousin as a Christmas gift. She is a new college graduate, so she needs a good basic cookbook...this is a great one!
