    Book Description
    From Booklist
    "The regularity of three meals a day, year in and year out, is sufficiently appalling to give one a case of good old-fashioned nerves." Sound familiar? Some 70 years ago, under its original moniker of Fruit, Garden and Home, editors at Better Homes and Gardens were already proving that they mirrored American tastes--and they would continue to do so for three-quarters of a century. This definitive collection of 230 nostalgic, nutritional, and just plain reader-favorite recipes will be a hit in any library. The book reveals culinary history for Generation Xers (as well as some baby boomers) who have not experienced the birth of frozen packaged foods, the joys of canning, and the intricacies of fondues. "Vintage Views" snippets recall some of the magazine's best stories (e.g., Walt Disney's guest recipe in 1934 was macaroni Mickey Mousse). Stars signal reader favorites, and hearts, the more health-conscious recipes. All recipes amount to tried-and-true, no-fail, well-loved dishes. Menus, metric cooking hints, useful equivalents, baking-pan sizes, and oven temperature equivalents appended. Barbara Jacobs

    Midwest Book Review
    Better Homes tests and retests all its recipes for this collection, gathered from the magazine's pages: the result is a diverse gathering of contest winners and favorites sent in by readers and tested by kitchen experts. From main dishes to desserts, these have been updated to reflect modern health concerns and interests in low-fat fare.
