Book Review: Grandma's Back to the Basics Cookbook

From the back of the book:
Grandma's Back to Basics All Natural More Than Just a Cookbook really is more than just a cookbook. Not only is this cookbook filled with many delicious recipes but it is also chock full of helpful notes and hints. Thompson shares lots of suggestions and solutions with the cook about common cooking concerns. Among the hundreds of tips included in this book are how to remove the smell of fish while baking, how to easily peel potatoes, a safe way to wash fruits and vegetables to remove pesticides, and suggestions on how to prevent pies from spilling over during baking.
This book will be a beneficial resource to anyone who, like the author, suffers from food allergies or who wants to eat natural foods. This cookbook contains a variety of recipes that are well suited for the novice cook as well as many dishes better suited for the more experienced cooks.

My Review:

I really love this book because the recipes are down home recipes and remind me of growing up.  The recipes are made with natural ingredients and great for people who suffer from allergies. I like that there are a lot of recipes in the book, but there is no index so you have you flip through to find what you need.  Also, the text "Strawberry Shake" appears under a lot of the headings.  It would be easier to read the instructions if they were not in paragraph form.  All in all I would still buy the cookbook because of the great recipes.
