Ashley and Gentry Beck have compiled a book organized by appetizers, salads, breads, vegetables, main dishes, and desserts. Each color-coded section of the book includes a few of their favorite recipes, followed by empty pages to be completed by the cook. Their hope is that when a favorite recipe is discovered, that recipe could be added to this book, never to be lost or misplaced.
My Recipe Book would be a nice gift for a young girl beginning to cook. This book would enable her to try Ashley and Gentry's recipes, as well as record many of her own favorites. As her repertoire of favorites increased, a more extensive and flexible system would probably be necessary, but this book is a nice start on a recipe keeping system.
