To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Let me be clear. I do not cook. I prepare food for the family so we will not starve. But with this book I can make breakfast fit for a specialty brunch café. Instructions are very clear and easy to follow and the results are always delicious. I admit, I've owned it for years and have only tried about 6 recipes, but every time I open it I remember how good those were and go back. This morning I finally tried a new one, the Four Season's Lemon Ricotta Hotcakes. I was a bit intimidated by the origin of the recipe, but they were delightful! This book is perfect if your family (like mine) loves pancakes or if you just want to try something extra special for breakfast (although she includes many non-breakfast recipes, including many savory preparations).
I bought this companion volume to Dorie Greenspan's waffle book and it is jam packed with interesting recipes. I own all of Dorie's books and none have ever let me down. now,let me at those buttermilk pancakes!
