Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fast tomato salsa

    • saladfiend on May 28, 2014

      Wonderful with Muir Glen fire-roasted tomatoes and a little extra salt!

  • German potato salad

    • SilverSage on January 06, 2011

      Excellent! Not overpowering, yet nicely sweet-tart.

  • Mashed potatoes

    • jbuchman on January 03, 2012

      Page 162; Sam loves these.

  • Roasted red potatoes

    • tara2r on October 06, 2010

      These are wonderful and easy! I've made the rosemary and garlic and the oregano and feta variations and loved them both. They do have a little bit of a "raw" garlic taste to them (the garlic doesn't actually get cooked, just tossed with the cooked potatoes). My super picky son liked them and said they tasted a little like garlic fries.

  • Fettucine with shrimp, tarragon, and cream

    • MyBeautifulExplodingKitchen on July 14, 2014

      Really nice to add tiny browned crimini, peas, and shrimp. Use more tarragon than requested.

  • Baked macaroni and cheese

    • bloncosky on May 22, 2012

      This is a kick butt Mac & Cheese recipe. I am not a big fan of the dense block of cheese and pasta dishes that you get at most pot luck dinners, this recipe is the saucy kind of cheesy macaroni. It does take a bit more work that just grating the cheese and adding butter and macaroni but it is worth it.

  • Skillet turkey tetrazzini

    • BethNH on November 30, 2010

      Good and simple dinner. I left out the mushrooms and it was still yummy.

  • Overnight yeasted waffles

    • scparks on November 22, 2012

      I use Cup 4 Cup or King Arthur All-purpose Gluten Free Flour to make this gluten free and it works really well. The overnight part of the recipe is, I think, what makes the difference.

  • One-pot chicken and rice

    • Analyze on February 15, 2014

      we thought this was boring and way too average, but sometimes simple things are good (just depends on your personal taste buds), so I hesitate to give this a low rating.

  • Chicken Divan

    • Analyze on February 12, 2014

      Awesome comfort food! My husband and I both thought this was great.

  • Chicken and dumplings

    • themarybaker on September 25, 2014

      I deleted the peas and added mushrooms & rosemary sprig. Very good.

  • Slow-cooker Moroccan spiced chicken with apricots

    • Kfaber on December 08, 2013

      Very tasty and comforting dish for a cold day. Used chicken thighs and served it on cous cous.

  • Pressure-cooker chicken and rice with lemon and scallions

    • themarybaker on September 11, 2014

      Ok. A bit bland in flavor. I would add more lemon flavor. For some reason my chicken breasts were dry.

  • Peanut butter cookies

    • JanetinMaine on February 06, 2012

      Great basic peanut butter cookies. Roll dough balls in sugar before smashing with fork and then baking.

  • Tomato and mozzarella tart

    • Kate Cooks the Books

      Great for a block party where you need to make something that will feed a decent amount of people and can sit out in the heat and sun.

Publishers Text

Repackaged to be easier to use and expanded to include a whole new chapter of healthy, light recipes, this revised edition of one of last fall's bestselling cookbooks remains the one and only basic cookbook you will ever need. Beautiful step-by-step photos illuminate every conceivable technique from chopping shallots and skinning salmon to cutting up a chicken and tying a roast. In fact, just about anything you want to do in the kitchen is explained in these pages in America's most popular test kitchen's approachable, no-nonsense voice.

These recipes will keep you busy (and your friends and family happy) for years to come, since we've included hundreds of easy weeknight dishes (like Skillet Lasagna and One-Pot Chicken and Rice), company-worthy dinners (like Beef Burgundy, Roast Leg of Lamb, and Fresh Fruit Trifle), equipment ratings, shoppings tips, and more.

Many years in the making, this comprehensive cookbook delivers more than 1,200 foolproof recipes for classic American family fare in a clear, accessible style. Beautiful step-by-step photos illuminate every conceivable technique from chopping shallots and rolling out pie dough to cutting up a chicken and tying a roast. In fact, just about anything you want (or need) to do in the kitchen will be explained in these pages in the test kitchen's approachable, no-nonsense voice. In addition, the recipes will keep you busy (and your friends and family happy) for years to come since we've included hundreds of easy weeknight dishes (like Skillet Lasagna and One-Pot Chicken and Rice), company and holiday-worthy dinners (like Beef Burgundy, Roast Leg of Lamb, and Flourless Chocolate Cake), dozens of menus, shopping tips, equipment ratings and more.


A cooking tutorial between two covers, The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook is the one and only basic cookbook you will ever need, covering every course, from appetizers to desserts, plus chapters on breakfast, sandwiches, sauces and condiments, and beverages. Friendly and to-the-point test kitchen tip boxes accompany the recipes and point out either where you might go wrong, or a special technique or ingredient that makes the recipe successful. Helpful charts (like primers on steaming vegetables and cooking grains) and Cooking 101 pages (covering topics like brining meats, buying cheeses, and how to prepare crudités) make this a reference unlike any other. Bound to get America back into the kitchen again, this is a family cookbook for generations to come.
