"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."
