Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Excellent cookbook! Although some instructions aren't very detailed, still very easy to follow. For those who grew up with the cookbook in the home they'll recall all the wonderful dishes that were made from recipes found here. So glad to have found this re-print!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust Me - You need this cookbook! For all of you out there that are looking for the ultimate cookbook this is it! A MUST HAVE! For as long as I can remember my mother (a home economic teacher) used this cookbook and nothing but. Her copy has no cover and is now bound by a big rubber band. Once a month I call and get recipes from her. I'm so glad it's back in print again (I hope it's the original). I will be buying a new copy for my mom and two other sisters. If you want to be the highlight at your next potluck, I suggest making the buttertarts, they are to die for! Enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Roses Heaven - Clarification needed My Aunt in P.E.I. has this coverless, much used cookbook. Her cookbook has a variety of recipes from gravies to potato pancakes. Is this the same cookbook with recipes extending above and beyond baked goods. Is that what the ETC. in the title stands for? She has had the book for over 20 years and I want to put it on my Christmas wish list if it is the same one! My Aunt uses this book on a daily basis for all of her meal preparations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from . For as long as I can remember, my mother has used this cookbook. Her copy is tattered, stained, missing both covers, and well loved. I dont recall her ever using any cookbook but this one and I grew up leafing through its pages. I have looked for a copy for myself and am glad to see it finally back in print. If you only own one cookbook, make sure it is this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Roses Cook Book Is this the cookbook that I have tattered, overused, spilled stains on pages? I hope it is the same, I need to replace mine badley, but thought I would neverfind it again. Please tell me its the original.I don't know the year of mine, the cover is missing, but I have had it for 30 years. I would love to find out if it is the same. Anyone out there know?? - From our Food & Drink Editor: "The answer is yes, it's the same cookbook. Different cover, pagination etc. but it should be the same. The old(er) version had a big ol' colour picture of an opened bag of Five Roses flour and (if I recall) a mini feast of food."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!!! I am pleased to see that the Five Roses cookbook has finally been reprinted. Although I have not yet purchased the new edition I do have an edition from 1934 and my grandmother had one from the 1950's. They are so worth having, the pancake recepie is to die for as is the light fruit cake (if they made it in the new edition). I look forward to getting a new copy as mine is very dog-eared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Roses Cookbook One of my favourites. This is one of my first cookbooks I've owned. I love the recipes. I own several other cookbooks but this is one book I always refer back to and I highly recommend this one to every cook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally Reprinted I have been looking for a copy of this cookbook for several years. My friends and family have copied some of the wonderful recipies and have been looking foreward to the time when the Five Roses Cookbook will be back in print so they can have a copy for themselves. The recipies are wonderful and I must say it has been my favorite and most used cookbook. It was the first cookbook I ever owned and an excellent resource for information. An any kitchen must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Roses A Family Tradition My Mom has a copy of the Five Roses Cookbook, and I have been Borrowing it for a few years now , we've been passing it back and forth. My mom got this cookbook when I was just a baby. The recipesin thisbook are awsome. I especialy like the prize butter tarts, the Maid of honour tarts and the chocolate chip cookies recipies. This book is missing the front cover, but I can still remember what it looks like. It was white with a picture of a bag of flour on it. It has been so well used, there are pages falling out and there are food stained and stuck to the pages. This book remindes me of Christmas baking and I think the smell reminds me of when I was a little girl. I want to pass this on to my two daughters and I want them to have the same memories as me. Baking with mom and grandma at Christmas time. Thanks for the family tradition Five Roses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Roses "A Guide to Good Cooking" This cookbook is a an old favorite of mine. I have the twenty-fourth edition. It has been used so often that the pages are tattered and torn, you can see which recipes are my favorite by just opening the book. I have just purchased six issues of this cookbook to give to my daughter, sons, and nieces. I am so pleased to know that the originial recipes have not changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from somethings Don't change! I have this book published in 1915, on the front page of it there is coupons to buy and send a book to a friend for forty cents in stamps or silver . when I saw the new edition of this book at costco's , I thought of my grandmother who passed this book on to me .the Tumbler Cake is so neat 2tumblers of brown sugar 1 tumbler of butter 1 tumbler molasses and on it goes now to day I wonder what size of tumbler? guess it doesn't matter ,a tumbler is a tumbler right ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have the original I love old cookbooks and this just happens to be one I have the original of. If you like old recipes and can figure out what some of the products used are and the quantities you'll love playing with them. The only thing wrong with old recipes is they use a lot more lard and fats than we do today. They are still fun though. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this book really is a copy of the original, the recipes haven't been changed at all. It is also fun to go through old cookbooks with children to show them what things were like back when the book was written. It is well worth the purchase if you like old cookbook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Standard I have MANY cookbooks in my collection but I always find myself drawn to my old tattered Five Roses cookbook for most of my needs. This is an EXCELLENT and easy to understand book for everyone. Highly recommended!!!!

You may have dozens of cookbooks in your kitchen library, but when it comes to bread and pastry recipes, you`ll only ever need one. This wonderful book enjoyed extraordinary success upon its first publication in 1913, and by 1915 had found a home in 650,000 Canadian kitchens` which at the time was almost half of all homes in Canada. Elizabeth Baird, food director at Canadian Living magazine, offers this re-printing of the delightfully handy Five Roses Cook Book, featuring tried and true recipes for everything from breakfast griddle cakes to Homesteader`s bread and ginger snaps.
