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.
Me subscribí a la edición digital de el magazine everyday food y me encantaba, los libros me han gustado menos, muchas recetas no son de mi agrado, eso si, todas llevan foto y están muy bien explicadas.
The recipes are really good, fast, and interesting. However, for a beginner cook like me who has yet to pin down the art of menu planning, I find the ingredients list to be the worst thing about the book. I don't live in the US and so some of the ingredients are hard to find. The menu doesn't offer substitute information as well. Half of the recipes in the book would be hard for me to do because of the sourcing problem.
The cookbook is just meh. It's just a collection of recipes with difficult to source ingredients, and don't offer flexibility for people who don't live in a big US city with big fancy groceries and butchers and farmer's markets.
I expected it to be more useful. A lot of recipes look mundane (and I am not a profy, I just don't like mundane food), I tried an apple tart recipe twice and it turned out to be tasty but weird looking (and you can't do anything about it if you use prepared frozen dough as the book suggests), something that I definitely can't put on the table for the guests. And the way the book's organized looks weird to me.
I am a collector of cookbooks and have Martha's Baking one as well as some others. At a glance without having tried the receipes, I was slightly disappointed. I definitely will give it time to prove me wrong since I have not had time to actually prepare one of the many from which to choose. I like the Everyday Food PBS show that airs weekly and was hoping these receipes would be a reflection of that show.
