Betty Crocker's Cookbook: Everything You Need to Know ~ Family Favorite
I purchased my first Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook after Charles and I moved in together, in 1996. I had read that this cookbook had the very basics for beginners and more advance home cooks. As a new wife I really needed a cookbook that was also a resource.
One of the most used sections of the book were the How-To pages. Want to know what temperature and cooking time to bake sweet potatoes? The cookbook provides steps for cutting up a whole chicken to how to serve a whole fish! I found that these pages to invaluable!
After looking through the various recipes I began making pancakes and waffles from scratch. Charles and Marcus enjoyed them much more then the mixes. I could also eliminate the sugar since Charles is a diabetic.
Overall, this cookbook we think this cookbook is a must have in all kitchens. I'm even planning on getting Kiana and Marcus their copies when they fly the nest!
