One of the things I really like about the Taste of Home cooking magazines is the pictures. And, this cookbook is full of them. As near as I can tell, there is a picture for every recipe. There is also an introduction which has some basic how to's, kitchen stocking and cookware helps and the occasional recipe also has how to photos along with the finished product. Like most Taste of Home recipes, these are fairly easy and most can be prepared with what you already have in your pantry.
One of my favorites from this new cookbook is Cashew Chicken (page 71). Easy and yummy.
This would be a great gift for a new bride or college student.
