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 thought this would be like my red/white plaid Betty Crocker Cookbook of decades ago - recipes made with fresh ingredients and pantry staples. This should have been titled the Big Book of Bisquick Breakfasts & Brunch. MANY of the recipes call for various Bisquick mixes - and those that don't often call for other boxed or pre-packaged ingredients. We do not cook this way at all, so this was a waste of money to me. Not at all what I was expecting. For those who regularly rely on boxed mixes, this may be a wonderful cookbook - but we do not use them, so I will not be trying any of these recipes. As a result I cannot speak to the flavor or appeal of any of the actual recipes.
Many recipes include the ingredient Bisquick, which I don't use because I don't care for it. I would not have purchased the book had I known that. I was really hoping for recipes making food items from scratch.
