I agree with Jeni. Too much to even cook, let alone evaluate in all the areas covered.

The last recipe enjoyed here from that book was the Chicken Paprikash.

I have to admit this is one of my least opened cookbooks. Not sure why, but I just haven't had a lot of success with the recipes. My standard is the Betty Crocker cookbook....am on my third copy!
