|I at first got this book just to see how someone could come up with so many recipes, but he did. Some I actually remembered from when I was a kid, but most were either new ways or with different potatoes. The recipes with the sweet potatoes were good and different. Overall a good book. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
