Rated 5 out of 5 by Ruthsmiles Couldn't Put It Down!
I love his television show and his family. I loved all the stories and recipes. I'm not much of a baker, but still loved reading the recipes and the pictures.
Rated 1 out of 5 by stephanie30 Not many recipes
I bought this book in hopes of having lots of his recipes, I was surprised when I got it because its more about him and his family then a cook book with recipes in it. Not really worth the money if your looking for baking but a really good book for reading about him and his family.
Rated 3 out of 5 by dotngene Loved the photos and info
I loved the photos and information contained in the cookbook, however I agree with the people who tried the crumb cake recipe and failed. I tried it also,( 3 times) and each time it wound up in the garbage. I was very disappointed by this since that was the main reason I bought the book.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ownerof3 not worth the price for a paper weight
II am not a bad baker, I bought this book for the crumb cake recipe , tried it 6 times using different pans and trying to adjust it ,(i.e leave out the custard) . Each time it ended up in the trash can. Tried contacting them via phone could only leave a message never a returned call or answer. Tried e-mail only received offers to buy merchandise Not worth the time , effort or money for the book or ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Disneyforever FUNNY - SWEET - GOOD READ
THIS WAS A VERY SWEET BOOK DETAILING HIS FAMILY, AND THEIR STRUGGLES.
MORE OF A "COME TO AMERICA AND DO BETTER". i REALLY ENJOYED IT. THERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF HIS FAMILIY. THERE ARE RECIPES & PICTURES.
NOT MANY BUT SOME. I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THIS TO FRIENDS.
Rated 1 out of 5 by skeets DISAPPOINTED
I know that all recipe books are not exactly filled with all recipes that we are going to love and cherish but for the most part, we seem to find some that make the purchase worth every cent. This is NOT one of those cookbooks. I, like many others have watched the program on television and thought that it would be really great to have some of the famous recipes that we had seen. Well, forget that thought, this book was so disappointing and the recipes were not even worth making. I was looking for a cake book that contained good recipes and not one that contained his life story with just a few recipes thrown in for jesture. I did not need 30 days to try out the book's recipes, I sent it back right away. Save your money on this book and use it for another cake book, one which is full of tasty recipes and not so much story time.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SWDuVal Good Book, but...
I wish there were more recipes, I bought the book for the cannoli recipe, however it seems very difficult. It's still a nice book to have in my collection!
