I also read Taste of Home: Best Loved recipes, in exchange for review from netgalley. The book also had simple, easy to read, colorful recipes. I loved the BLT tomatos, potato skins, party bread, and shrimp nachos. The Book provides great recipes for parties, celebrations, and family gatherings. Read full review
