My sister and I love collecting cookbooks. Even if you don't make all the recipes from the book I like reading them, and learning about some new techniques or dishes. Some old standbys for me are "THe Joy Of cooking" and Julia Childs "The way to Cook". Some other books I like are The Naked Chef's first book, The Frugal Gourmet and Alton Brown's book. What are some of your favorites? I'm always looking to add more to my library :-)

My favorite cookbooks are Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen. The first one is filled with amazing cupcakes from vanilla, chocolate to smores, margarita, green tea... So many wonderful flavors in a cupcake! The second one is really simple using fresh ingredients. All the recipes I've tried were delicious. Perfect for dinner parties.

I totally recommend that cupcake book. Even if you are not vegan, the recipes still rock and the cupcakes come out moist and sweet (and are a lot healthier to boot!)

I have over 150 cookbooks. I used to use them regularly. I probably will again one day. I cannot bear to part with any one of them. My favorite cookbook is one from 1976. The Girl Scouts put it out in my school district in Ohio. It is a community cookbook. A collection of everything and anything. Community cookbooks are my favorite.

My favorite cookbook is Betty Crockers with the orange cover from like 1979. My Stepmom had that one and she used to like to let us look through it to find things we wanted to make. I have a copy of the book although it needs to be replaced as it is in pieces...it was that way when I rescued it when my MIL was going to throw it out. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

Honestly I do not have favorite cookbook, and I don't have cookbook at all. I usually get recipes and tips for cooking from browsing over the Internet. So I don't have book's collection like what have this time.
