The Great Potato Cookbook by Reader's Digest

The Great Potato Cookbook put out by Reader's Digest has over 250 recipes for cooking soups, salads, main dishes, vegetarian dishes, and even desserts with potatoes and sweet potatoes. It describes the difference between floury (high starch) potatoes and waxy (low starch) potatoes and how to best use each.

My main complaint with many cookbooks is that the recipes ask for ingredients and spices that I don't generally have on hand. This cookbook is mostly plain cooking but with combinations that will make you think, "That's worth trying." There are recipes representing various ethnic tastes, yet nothing so exotic that you can't find the main spices or ingredients. ("Hey, hon, would you please pick up some blowfish for supper tonight?")
