the BIBLE of cookbooks. A bit spendy but if you use any cookbook. Or own only one cookbook. Or gift a cookbook. THIS IS THE ONE! Truly, I go through one every couple of years.
That's it. I'm a big believer in keeping meals simple and using the same basic recipes over and over again, in varying forms. AND...Pinterest is always full of great ideas if I'm looking for something new.
