Anyone who likes recipes that are doable and reminiscent of a lifetime of food, will want to immediately pick up The Tried & True Cookbook , by popular blogger, Alyssa Rivers.

The recipes in the book are not particularly innovative or unusual, which can be intimidating to beginning cooks; rather they are down-to-earth good recipes that are very appealing and are fairly easy to prepare. The recipes included are presented in the traditional manner with a list of ingredients first, followed by step-by-step instructions. The author has also included notes at the beginning of the recipes that include tips and helps in creating mouthwatering dishes.

One of the best things about this excellent cookbook is that there are beautiful, professional photographs of every recipe, which will make readers “must make soon” queue longer every time the cookbook is perused. The recipes are suitable for families – kids and adults will like the dishes.

The recipes call for common ingredients – no need to go to specialty stores – and there are recipes for all seasons and celebrations. Rivers includes over 150 recipes for everything from appetizers to breads and soups and salads, as well as plenty of main dishes and desserts. These are recipes that appeal to regular people, and there is something for everyone, even picky eaters.

All told, this is an excellent cookbook to keep on the kitchen shelf. It is also nice enough to make a good gift for anyone who wants to prepare good, easy dishes.
