This is a new edition of Herald Press's all-time best-selling cookbook, helping thousands of families establish a climate of joy and concern for others at mealtime. The late author's introductory chapters have been edited and revised for today's cooks. Statistics and nutritional information have been updated to reflect current American and Canadian eating habits, health issues, and diet guidelines. The new U.S. food chart--My Plate--was slipped in at the last minute and bplaced alongside Canada's Food Guide. But the message has changed little from the one that Doris Janzen Longacre promoted in 1976, when the first edition of this cookbook was released. In many ways she was ahead of her time in advocating for people to eat more whole grains and more vegetables and fruits, with less meat, saturated fat, and sugars.

This is a wonderful book of recipes for world-class cuisine that is not expensive. These recipes are interspersed with information about global poverty and food shortage, and remind us to be prudent in our use of the world's limited resources. Many recipes have become family favorites.

Good book for recipes that are homemade with actual ingredients. There are some "time savers" that use canned soups, but I believe there are recipes to make the homemade version of the soups. Lots of recipes that do not focus on meat - which is nice if you are looking for cheaper meals to fed a large family. They also call for margarine, but butter or whatever fat you want to use can be subbed in. Worth a flip through, there are no pictures.
