Honestly just bought this because they were throwing in the 2011 edition for free...some of the recipes do look very promising though. I particularly enjoyed the "one big roast, four great meals" section (looking forward to trying the roast beef!). I also liked that in the front of the book, there was a list of commonly used ingredients and the amounts used (ex. half a bell pepper) so that you could meal plan around using the entire ingredient instead of stuffing part of it back in your fridge and finding an unrecognizable lump several months later...unfortunately happens way too often in my case. I'll add a star rating once I've actually cooked something out of it. I have made some ATK baked goods before and they have all been successful, but I still want to try the book out before I pass a final judgment.
