From Publishers Weekly:

Drawing on the tastes and favorites of their fans, the editors of Taste of Home offer up a whopping 735 recipes highlighting Midwest, Northeast, South, Southwest, and Western regions of America. As in previous editions, comfort food dominates—Buffalo wings, Swedish meatballs, cherry pie—but there are also surprises, such as the grilled sweet potato and red pepper salad and a homemade barbecue sauce that incorporates a can of Dr. Pepper. Regional recipes such as a flavorful low country boil from the South, Chicago deep-dish pizza, Tex-Mex fajitas and green chili pork stew, do a fine job of representing their locale. The selection covers the culinary spectrum—there is everything from appetizers like caviar and cheese spreads to desserts like a delicious blackout cake and a bevy of classic cocktails. The majority of recipes are sourced from readers, which sometimes works to the book's detriment, such as when a recipe calls for a pork butt, onions, cabbage, and root vegetables tossed in a pot and boiled sans salt, pepper, or any seasonings. However, the editors make up for any amateur efforts via volume and variety. (Sept.)
