Although this book has recipes and instructions, it's not your average cookbook. I really like this book. It goes through steps and procedures that most cookbooks don't, and has plenty of pictures. It's more of a how-to book, a lot on dishes you may never have made. It's a big and thick book, make room for it! Also, I would recommend her \"Housekeeping Handbook.\" LOVE IT!
This book has taught me so many great things about taking care of my home. As a new homeowner, I felt so overwhelmed with the little things. Well, Martha helps with those little things and the big things. It's great to have advice on everything from doing laundry to picking out a durable couch. I have learned so much from this book, thank you Martha!
