To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wish I'd known this cookbook has NO pictures,. That's one of the best parts of a cookbook, looking at mouthwatering photos and getting excited about making the dishes. I was getting ready to return it for a different book, but discovered I would be charged almost half the price of the book for return shipping!! I'm better off keeping it, donating it to the local library and buying another one elsewhere. But either way I can't get excited about a single recipe in this book. If pictures aren't important to you, it might be worth buying.
I was disappointed in that there were no pictures of cooked products. I did not expect there to be pictures for all of the recipes but I thought there might have been "specials". After all, the first thing that attracts us to a dish is how it looks.
