Publishers Text

Perfect for long-term reference, the Cook's Country 2009 Annual contains all six of the 2009 issues bound in one sturdy plaid-covered edition. Bound inside you'll also find an invaluable 2009 Recipe and Article Index to help search a year's worth of test kitchen recipes and cooking information- fast.

Recipe highlights include: Spicy Spaghetti Pie, Slow-Cooker Meatballs and Marinara, Make-Ahead Blueberry Pie, Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes, Roast Lemon Chicken, Lemon Sour Cream Cookies, Stuffed Onions, Slow-Cooker Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs, and Icebox Strawberry Pie— all obsessively tested and retested by our test cooks (as many as 50 times!) until we are confident they will work in your kitchen. Every time you make them. As we like to say here in the test kitchen, "We make the mistakes so you don't have to."

You'll find these and more than 250 other recipes, taste-tests, equipment ratings and easy cooking solutions in the Cook's Country 2009 Annual.

2009 offered some startling (even to us) results from our blind taste tests of name brand foods . . . fresh, jarred, canned, frozen, "gourmet," as well as "natural". In our test of canned baked beans we made a sweet discovery that the best-tasting brands all contained this ingredient - don't buy any can without it! And we also made the not-so-surprising discovery that the best low-fat strawberry yogurts were the ones made with real strawberries. And you may be surprised to discover that your favorite brand doesn't contain any at all.

We also tested a huge range of kitchen equipment without any preconceived notions equating price to quality — and got eye-opening results that can save you substantial amounts of money. We wanted to see if any of the new 'high-tech' pie plates made from new materials like silicone could outperform grandma's old-fashioned pyrex (they can't), whether vacuum sealers are worth the money(only if you are bulk buyer), and whether any hand mixer could mix it up as well as a standing mixers (not really- they are fine for infrequent bakers).
