Electronic Entertainment, October 1995

"The disc's intuitive interface, easy-to-read screens, and video clips - more than 125 of them - make this digital cookbook a nifty kitchen tool. Use it to organize your recipes, plan meals, make shopping lists, and guide you in preparing great American favorites."

"The range of dishes, culled from the Better Homes and Gardens collection, covers the spectrum from light nouvelle cuisine - food that's good for the waistline - to classics like chicken and biscuits - food that's good for the soul. And since America is a melting pot, you'll also find gustatory imports like gumbo and chow main mixed in with recipes for cucumber sandwiches and The World's Best Deviled Eggs. You won't confuse this disc with the Weight Watchers' cook book, but it's stuffed with mouth-watering recipes and fascinating glimpses of American culinary history."
