    Really glad I bought this one; it will be a reference book that I will return to many times. The presentation worked well on my Samsung tablet using the Kindle app, so I'm not sorry I bought the ebook rather than a paperback copy. We're trying to thin the cookbook herd since we're planning a remodel that will do away with a bookshelf that currently houses a pile of cookbooks that I never use.

    As you would expect this is an excellent book. I really don't care for food additives and like food to taste like it used to. That pretty much means make it from scratch and I have several cookbooks for the purpose.

I heartily recommend it.

    In 4-page entries or less, with simple ingredient lists and endearing anecdotes, you can learn how to make everything from peanut butter to ketchup to marinated artichokes to salted caramels to pickles to cheese to crackers.

    This cookbook was pretty good. Although I didn't make anything in it, I can definitely see myself purchasing this and/or just borrowing it again. The pictures were great and it made me think that I could make some of the things with no problem. Lots of these recipes require a food processor which is something I hope to acquire soon.

    This is one I may have to buy in the future. I try my best to make most things from scratch when I can and this book is full of do-it-yourself-made-from-scratch recipes. There lots of great tips and techniques with each recipes and tons of color, step-by-step pictures too. I would highly recommend this one for anyone who wants to make more from-scratch food.

    This cookbook is great and will make a good addition to most people's cookbook collection. Unlike some other America's Test Kitchen cookbooks I've read through, the recipes in this one are items I really want to make. I got it from the library, but am planning on purchasing it because of all the useful recipes. I can't wait to try the candied ginger recipe!

    I liked this book because I have food sensitivities now and think it's sometimes fun to make things from super-scratch. I made the home made magic shell. I had to tweak it for more chocolate flavor but, the bones were there and so I got it to work. In AZ you need more solid chocolate in the mix or it is too soft. I will probably try more stuff too.

    I very much enjoyed reading this, although I'm not sure how likely I am to make any of these recipes any time soon. (A lot of the ones that most appeal to me feature ingredients hard to come by in Turkey, alas. :-() I particularly appreciate the ample photographs, although in some cases, videos would be even more helpful!

    Unsuccessfully trying to talk myself out of buying this one. In 4-page entries or less, with simple ingredient lists and endearing anecdotes, you can learn how to make everything from peanut butter to ketchup to marinated artichokes to salted caramels to pickles to cheese to crackers. Whoa.

    This book is about making basics, well, what would have been basic for our grandparents - making your own mustard, ketchup, canning. I would have liked more information on canning, but still exciting to know that I can make my own GF Worcestershire sauce.

    Varina

    I can't think of anything I have wanted to try making at home that isn't covered here (maybe hard cheeses, but those really probably need a whole book of their own), and every recipe comes with clear, illustrated instructions that make even the most arcane of kitchen arts seem approachable.

    Excellently written recipes, which is a given with ATK cookbooks. This is an great collection of recipes for everyday products that we all buy at the grocery store without thinking of the cost involved or what ingredients are included.

    Gorgeous collection of recipes to try to learn more about pickling, canning, brewing, and other kitchen DIY projects. I would highly recommend this to someone wanting to start learning more about kitchen crafts.

    A must for the kitchen DIY-er. In the true tradition of America's Test Kitchen, they explain both why and how to do a myriad of wonderful things that sound delicious. This is definitely going on my wishlist.

    Wonderful resource with things I would never make on my own. This would be a great gift for family night, home school families or folks who like to make their own stuff...certainly would be healthier.

    Another book that I will review on my blog. The short of it, is that if you are someone who is trepidatious about trying new recipes and one who follows them to a 'T' (see what I did there Theresa) then this book is very comforting.

    Perfect for when you feel the need to tackle more adventurous and involved recipes, from ketchup to beer brewing. Tons of fun projects especially if you find yourself with a lot of something, produce to can or left over wine to make vinegar.

    It's ATK, so I'm confident it's good stuff, but since it's ATK, I'm not sure about the amount of effort involved.

    This cookbook is full of sticky notes. I can't wait to make all the recipes, ok, not quite all of them, but most of them. Love the cookbooks from America's Test Kitchen!

    Buying my own copy of this. Nicely illustrated steps for the recipes with a good mix of simple and more complicated preservation techniques.

    An excellent reference for all sorts of home cooking projects, and it has an engaging voice, for a cookbook.I read it from cover to cover the first time through.

    I tore through this and made every recipe, front to back. Totally grew my confidence as a cook and tinkerer of all things worth imbibing.

    Great book for the make it yourselfer! Plenty of recipes on condiments, pickles, cured meats, cheeses and sweets. I checked this book out from my local library, but this one I am saving my money to bring this baby home forever. I know I will use this recipe book again and again.
