Cook books?

eri86 eri86
I just bought my first cook book yesterday, 'One Pot Cooking.'

So many tasty looking recipes where everything is cooked in one pot and cooked on the stove or the oven.

Now I just need to get a piece of cookware that be used on the stove and in the oven.

What cookbooks do you have and use most often?

I have a few cookbooks, my favorite ones are the 5 ingredient or less cookbooks since I need very simple recipes since I am not very good in the kitchen.

I love my Joy of Cooking and Best Recipe cookbooks, the latter of which has some really nice explanations of the trial and error process in their test kitchens. I have a few Taste of Home cookbooks and subscribe to that magazine as well.

I also have some vintage cookbooks that have been handed down to me. It's interesting to see how cooking methods have changed since then.

I got an awesome cast iron Dutch Oven at Bed Bath Beyond for about 60 dollars using their 20% coupon. That thing goes from stovetop to oven without a problem, up to about 400F or so. I've even made bread in that thing, it's awesome.

I have a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that we get basics from, like pancakes and muffins, but we usually adapt them. The rest of the recipes, we get from just about everywhere. Online, cooking shows, blogs, etc. Whenever I look at modern cookbooks, I'm often disappointed. I'm not interested in recipes that call for boxed mixes and cans of soup.

I have some low carb cookbooks. I don't really use them though. I like to make my own meals.

I love to use more ethnic cookbooks (Indian, Thai, Greek, etc) or for baking. For me, I use a recipe once and then I'll make my own variations on it and constantly improve on it. I don't always follow recipes either though

I make a lot of the things from my Culinary Institute of America Baking and Pastry textbook. Beyond that, I have a select few other cookbooks that were given to me or were really cheap and sounded like a good idea at the time, but so many recipes call for stuff I don't keep on hand and have no use for except that one recipe, so I don't make anything. I usually find recipes online or make it up myself.

I don't have many, prefer getting specific recipes online and printing them.
