    Cookbooks that only have a handful of great recipes are nobody's friend.

    What tried-and-true cookbooks do you refer to over and over again?

    What cookbook do you use that gives consistently good results even on new recipes you have never tried before?

    Here in Australia we have a series of cookbooks published by Australian Womens Weekly - a weekly womens magazine. They have been producing these cookbooks for over 30 years now in a soft cover about 128 pages each on just about every cooking subject you can imagine.

    They usually contain basic everyday recipes for the average household that anyone could make.

    Even though I have a collection of about 200 cookbooks, including many from the US, I still find I often use the AWW Cookbooks and they are my go to.

    Hi Molly,

    This may be a bit premature; however I received a copy of Melissa Joulwan's new cookbook, Well Fed: Paleo Recipes for People who Love to Eat a couple of days ago. I have been a big fan of Melissa's website for about a year (The Clothes Make The Girl), and I was thrilled when I found out she was writing a cookbook.

    And it did not disappoint. It has over 115 original recipes and each one has a gorgeous photo taken in natural light by her husband, Dave. Obviously as I just got the book, I have made the recipes myself, but visually they are extremely appealing.

    Here is a link to the long version of my review: Well Fed, and Most Definitely, Well Loved

    That book is available on Amazon. There's a heck of a terrific review there, too. Click on WELL FED to see it and the reviews.

    My first absolute favorite was the Joy of Cooking by the Rombauer family. Although my mom taught me home-cooking, The Joy was my entry into the world everything from aspic to zwieback. I read it like a novel and it formed the basis of my love for food and cooking. (My next cookbook was Larousse Gastronomique.)

    In the last decade, I came to love How to Cook Everything by the incredibly versatile Bittman. I use this for all the basics as I cook. It makes it easy to find times, temps, and techniques for just about any food, especially the limited range that is available here in rural Virginia.

    But I find that my favorite cookbook is the rather strangely titled How to Cook Without a Book by Pam Anderson. It is the best fit for me and my DH with our empty nest. It is like an outline of recipes that you can apply to the items you have on hand. We have had some of the best results with this book; some familiar, some uniquely different. I have even given gift copies to my children. It is different from most cookbooks but it lets me overcome that situation of looking in the fridge and wondering what we can have for dinner!

    Hi Molly,
    I have a very special cookbook from Better Homes & Gardens given to me as a wedding present in 1969 by my dear sister-in-law, which I have used so many times for any recipes and cooking references that we can imagine in the kitchen from:

    1. Nutrition and Meal Planning Menus.
    2. Special Helps for ingredients, cooking and food terms, storing foods, cooking short cuts, seasoning with spices & herbs, substitutions, equivalents, weights, measures, can sizes and removing spots and stains.
    3. Canning and Freezing cooked and baked foods, meats, desserts, fruits & vegetables.
    4. Table Settings for formal and buffet entertaining parties and Holidays.
    5. All food categories from Appetizers to Vegetables recipes.

    It is a REAL treasure that I will keep for the years to come and will give it to my dear granddaughter some day. icon_biggrin.gif icon_wink.gif

    Here is how it looks:

    Hannsay, if you're in the US you can find these books at nearly any bookstore. They're also commonly available at the library if you'd like to check them out for free before buying.

    If that's not an option for you, I'd suggest you go to www.amazon.com, type the title in on the searchline and purchase them by mail.
