Notes about this book

  • ellabee on March 24, 2016

    An outstanding reference: all the well-tested recipes from MS' first decade of books in one place, with no "lifestyle" or Martha photos (beyond the cover, and even that's more subdued than the norm). Caution re building shopping list from recipes without checking the book, as it was indexed in the earliest era of EYB indexing: The standard for 'store-cupboard ingredients' was different, so garlic, onion, milk, butter, flour, etc are very rarely listed.

  • FeastsandFestivals on June 22, 2012

    A go-to book when I can't find what I'm looking for somewhere else. I find the portions much too big and usually drastically resize the recipes downwards

  • Breadcrumbs on June 04, 2011

    Martha played a key role in fuelling my passion for cooking and this book replaced my well-worn copy of the Good Housekeeping Cookbook as my go-to reference book. I know some folks say they've had issues w Martha's recipes, saying they are hit and miss however that hasn't been my experience. Over the years I've come to count on Martha for some of what we'd consider to be our house recipes. Martha's Giblet Gravy for instance, is a must-have standard w our Christmas turkey and there are so many hits in this book that make regular appearances on our dinner table. Love this book.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Venison Bourguignon

    • cthdawn on February 07, 2010

      don't need 2 flour venison; very good and rich

  • Cucumber salad

    • PennyG on November 07, 2010

      This was okay. I'm going to use the extra vinaigrette on salads this week. I think I'll try the recipe for Cucumber Salad with Creme Fraiche Dressing from this same book next time.

  • Laura's maple-nut Hubbard squash purée

    • Couture911 on September 20, 2010

      I love this. I make it every year for Thanksgiving.

  • Cranberry-orange muffins

    • HazukaPie on December 13, 2017

      So the recipe says this makes 60, 1 1/2 inch muffins... More like 12 standard muffins.

  • Green enchiladas

  • Polenta with mascarpone and pesto

  • Persimmon pudding

    • anya_sf on February 20, 2019

      I made 1/2 recipe in a 1 quart pudding mold. The steaming time seemed quite long, but it did take nearly the whole time to cook through. The pudding shrank upon cooling and became fairly dense, but still soft and very moist. The flavor was good with a pleasant amount of spice and sweetness. The sour lemon sauce complemented it well.

  • Sour lemon sauce

    • anya_sf on February 20, 2019

      I made 1/2 recipe to accompany 1/2 recipe of persimmon pudding. Recipe states that it cannot be made ahead nor reheated (due to the cornstarch, I would guess), but the sauce is very quick and easy to make at the last minute. I used Meyer lemons, but the sauce was still nicely tart and went well with the pudding.

  • Chicory sautéed in olive oil and garlic

    • anya_sf on February 03, 2022

      I didn't really need a recipe for this (same method I've used for spinach or chard), but since I'd never cooked chicory before, only used it in salads, it was nice to have a reference. Expecting the greens to cook down a lot, which they did, I used 2 heads, but didn't need more oil or garlic. The recipe didn't say to chop the leaves at all, so I cooked them whole, but next time I will chop them since they were fairly chewy and not that easy to cut with a dinner knife. I enjoyed this preparation.

  • Black-eyed pea salad

    • angrygreycat on July 21, 2018

      Made 2 changes to the recipe, used cooked black eyed peas rather than canned and added some honey to cut the mustard in the dressing. This was delicious just decide how much you like mustard/how strong your mustard is when deciding how much to put in. The recipe calls from 1 to 2 tablespoons.

  • Sugar cookies II

    • ashallen on September 13, 2019

      I like my sugar/butter cookies to be very buttery. These cookies were OK but seemed a bit bland and almost cracker-like compared to other recipes I've made, probably because they have a higher proportion of flour to butter than other recipes I've enjoyed. I tried shaping them 2 different ways - rolling the dough into logs and slicing off rounds and rolling out the dough on the counter to cut cookie shapes. The dough log slices were thicker than the rolled cookies and produced soft, slightly puffy cookies. The rolled cookies were dry, crisp, and...cracker-like.

  • Cold buckwheat noodles

  • Banana bread

    • northstarcook on August 15, 2021

      My favorite banana bread recipe to date; turns out lovely every time. Consistent, easy to pull together, and delicious - a definite keeper in my book. I use 3 bananas, I skip the spices, and I increase the salt a little bit - that gives the perfect balance to our tastes. Oven timing is spot on.
