At this point in life I own dozens of cookbooks. Admittedly, several of them I have never even tried a recipe out of.
(This is why I love getting cookbooks as gifts- I don’t like spending my own money on them, because I feel I should try more recipes from the ones I have first. But other people spending money on them for me, that’s okay. Feel free to recommend your favorites to me, and I’ll put them on my Amazon wish list!)
Although some haven’t been opened in a couple years, there are a few cookbooks that I keep coming back to.
