  • THE COOKBOOK Stroganoff beef recipe page 206 – The second to last sentence of the instructions should read: Add the sour cream mixture and mushrooms to the pot and stir until well mixed.
  • Page 22 should list potatoes with cheese au gratin on page 246.
  • Grown-Up Mac and Cheese page 268 – add bacon at the end after adding extra salt and pepper to taste, or garnish individual portions with bacon.
  • Page 284 of the peanut butter cheesecake is shown with chocolate chips in the dough, but they are not on the ingredients list. Add 3/4 cup of semisweet chocolate chips after mixing the eggs, if desired.
