|America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook and|
Slow Cooker Revolution
What's great about these books is that the instructions are laid out clearly so anyone can prepare the recipe. Not only are the instructions clear, but they have pictures, not just of the final products, but preparation methods as well.
As well part of America's Test Kitchen's recipe writing process is finding out the best way to prepare an item. They talk about several ways they try to prep an item, and show you the best way, and often with pictures. Often in a recipe it will tell you to turn to a different page to show you how to prepare a certain item. As an example, for our Gluten Free Buffalo Chicken Fingers, they go through the proven and most effective way of coating the chicken that works so well for this recipes and others.
We recently purchased the Slow Cooker Revolution cookbook, and although we have only tried one recipe so far, we were not disappointed. All of this, simply reaffirms the usefulness of the America's Test Kitchen series.
