    This thing is HUGE. It's bigger than the giant Bible my parents kept on a coffee table during my youth to scare me & my brother straight. Also, I got tattooed & I drank & I kept a stash of pot in a co...

    The edition I borrowed from the library was formatted inconveniently for a cookbook. It was like a very thick hardcover novel-sized book. The book wouldn't stay open and there were no pictures. They c...
