Re: Your 'go to" cookbook suggestion

Oddly enough, the 2 books I like the most are "Better Homes and Gardens" from 2001ish and "On Cooking" from my first class. I would really love to get "The Joy of Cooking" and "The Way to Cook" by Julia Child and "I'm Just Here for the Food" by Alton Brown

Color Me Vegan, by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is FABULOUS!! I think it came out last November, so its pretty recent. It's about eating from all the colors of the rainbow so you can get all different nutrients. I've made 6 or seven of the recipes and they've all been great!

Kale chips are the bomb!

Re: Your 'go to" cookbook suggestion

lol far from veg, but my favorite is my Pioneer Woman cookbook - her recipes are awesome and exactly what Robert likes - down home, stick to your bones, yummy recipes. Like, her recipe for country fried steak is TDF! lol Not veg though, sorry! I don't use any other cook book but that and an old 1970s slow cooker one!

I love Moosewood cookbooks by Molly Katzen! There's a ton of them and they are all delish!

I do not own the vegetarian one but get it out of the library quite often. I do not feel that it overlaps. When I was looking for my go to cookbooks I went and check out the suggestions given to me at the library before I purchase them.

Re: Your 'go to" cookbook suggestion

I like vintage cookbooks in general. IMO newer cookbooks try too hard to try to make "exciting" recipes that just end up being things that no one in the house will eat.

I use a Betty Crocker from the 60's a lot. It has great recipes for rolls. I also have the cooking encyclopedia from Better Homes and Gardens from the 70's which is great, along with their pies and cakes cookbook. A Julia Child French cookbook, I'm not sure what year. It looks old.

For desserts, the Hershey cookbook is by far the best I've tried.

I don't have a vegetarian cookbook, but I've been wanting one.
