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.
I wasted my money on this book. In my opinion, there was barely any recipes the average home cook would make for her family. Most are too complicated with ingredients not in most cook's pantry. A trained chef would love this cookbook. I donated mine to charity rather than let it take up shelf space. I think the title is misleading.
It does not appear anyone tested these recipes. As other mentioned, there are a lot of mistakes. For example, the Creamy Mushroom Lasagna calls for 6 teaspoons of salt. I should have known better, but my head was elsewhere and I followed the recipe blindly. It was so salty we had to toss it. What a waste of a massive list ($$$) of ingredients. And cheese. So much wasted cheese!
