Like Restaurant Recipes?

Perhaps you are like me. I love restaurant recipes. This book more than delivers. This book does a historical breakdown on Junior's as it gives recipes for the most popular dishes of the restaurants 60 plus year tenure. This book contains recipes like Ice Cream Sodas, all sorts of soups, home cooking items like mashed potatoes, meat loaf, potato pancakes. This book has an extensive section on baked goods like their famous cheesecake, brownies, butter cookies, and many more.The book is well designed and pleasing to look at. The recipes are simple to read, and they taste great. The book also offers a good deal of history and pictures of Brooklyn through out the ages. You don't need to be from this area to enjoy this book.

recipes that really deliver!

I recently made the Strawberry Cheesecake, and it was out of this world--best I've ever had. I find the directions to almost all the recipes very clear and easy to follow. The extra-big Tea Biscuits are fabulous, and the recipe for the Vienna Rolls alone is worth the cost of the book. (By the way, the rolls call for malted milk powder, which can be purchased from the King Arthur Catalogue. If you're not familiar with this catalogue, go to their web site; you'll love it.) Our family also enjoyed the Spaghetti with Big Meatballs and Mac and Cheese Pie. If you're looking for big flavor with an emphasis on comfort foods, this book delivers. I'm looking forward to making the Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake for my next birthday. This is one of my favorite cookbooks.

A treasure

I bought this book several months ago and have used it off and on ever since. Junior's makes those common, simple recipes taste so much better than one might be used to. Standouts for me so far include chocolate chip cookies, brownies, Buffalo wings, and, oddly, the fried chicken! The dipping batter recipe is simply outstanding for frying. It beats the pants off of the traditional flour->buttermilk or egg->cornflakes routine.<p>I'm finally just getting around to making the cheescake (tonight) and am sure that I will not be disappointed.<p>Get this book for a slice of fine Americana...

Nostalgic and delicious!!!

I was born in Brooklyn in 1946, lived there through the fun '50s, the turbulent '60s, and the early '70s. I lived much of the history this great book covers and it hits it right on, from the glory days of Brooklyn to the sad decline (arguably started when our beloved Bums left). Junior's was a part of my youth and the memories are wonderful as are the recipes in dis book. For an entertaining survey of this GREAT CITY from the '20s through the '90s, this is a good buy. For recipes from a great restaurant, this is a treat. So many delicious dishes to try, so many memories to go with them. Chocolate Egg Creams, Yam Fries, cakes and pies, sandwiches, awesome French Toast, and so much more. And then there's the CHEESECAKE!! We still have them sent from Junior's. Worth every penny. Buy the book. Enjoy the book. Try the recipes. Bake a cheesecake, then call Junior's and have the real thing shipped to you from a great restaurant in THE GREATEST CITY IN THE WORLD!!! BROOKLYN!!!!
