My husband and I received this cookbook (a much earlier edition of course) as a wedding gift. It was our first cookbook and, today, remains one of our staple go-to cookbooks for our traditional family favorites. Now, it's old and ratty-tatty with lots of dried drips, but we love it! 

I highly recommend this Betty Crocker's Cookbook as the Best Cookbook available. Especially for house warming, weddings, anniversaries, etc, you can't go wrong with this newly revised edition for a thoughtful gift..and don't forget to tell the recipients, you'll be over for dinner soon! 

The 12th edition of a trusted favorite, with everything the home cook needs to cook confidently, fully updated for a newer generation—now available in a comb-bound format.

This is the book home cooks have come to trust; the 12th edition of the Betty Crocker Cookbook, with updated recipes, new photography, plus expanded and new chapters to meet the needs of today’s home cooks. With 1,500 recipes and variations, and more than 1,000 photos, this colorful new edition packs a punch. 
How-to step-by-step photos show rather than simply tell how to get great results. The new Technique features explain fully the concepts behind techniques such as braising, deglazing, and hot water–bath canning.  A Make-Ahead feature shows how to make a batch of one item and use it various ways. And a Global Flavors ingredient ID introduces new ingredients by region. Now available in a convenient comb-bound edition, this classic is destined to be the most-used book in the kitchen.
