This book contained many recipes, like just in general…there were a ton of recipes. For as many as I did mark, there were so many more that I didn’t! I can’t wait to try some of these and test my skills out

Comfort food and so much more!

It's easy to see why this book was a recent winner at the Julia Child IACP awards! The Jamisons have amassed a fabulous collection of the great recipes we've all loved as we were growing up, as well as new ones to enhance anyone's repertoire. The scrumptious photos tempt anyone's taste buds! Lots of informative tidbits are packed in with all the recipes. So many delicious recipes, but we especially love the macaroni and cheese. Classic comfort food that's easy to make and really hits the spot. This book is great for novice cooks as well as the more experienced ones, and the Jamisons' research benefits all of us!

Back To Our Roots

Cookbooks like computers have a bias toward the exotic. We need starter set computers and we need back to basics cookbooks. The former is a pipe dream. The latter is here. It's American Home Cooking. Have you forgotten how to make a New England Boiled dinner [I had]? This cookbook will show you how your mother used to do it. And venison? Macaroni and cheese? The really good stuff you used to get at home [even jalapeno recipes if your home was in the southwest] is all here. The directions are lucid, the results are predictable. Home at last.

Good Down Home Cooking!

We loved the cookbook.We tried the Iowa Skinnies a pork tenderloin sandwich from the I states. We grew up in central Illinois and remember these sandwiches from childhood. The recipes are easy to follow. The Jamesons also include ingredient tips which are helpful in choosing the correct ingredients in our area. This would be a great Christmas gift. Our daughter just got married and loves to cook a copy is going to her. Can't wait for the next book. Thanks to the Jamesons!

American Home Cooking - a hit with the cooks and the guests

"American Home Cooking" was a hit at our family's Thanksgiving. The cooks in the group served us some great stuff from the recipies (don't miss the New Orleans Bread Pudding) and the rest of us - from different parts of the country - loved learing the food history of our different home bases. "American Home Cooking" was quickly put on Christmas gift lists. Great food and entertaining reading!

A great cookbook for any chef!

I have been a fan of the Jamison's cookbooks over the years, and this latest addition is the best one yet! There are many old favorites (check out the macaroni and cheese... ) and some tasty regional specialties. The recipes are written clearly enough for a novice cook to follow, and there are interesting ideas for the experienced chef. As in their other books, the Jamisons include some historical background for the foods, which rounds out the book nicely. And did I mention the lucious color photos?
