For the basics I like Better Homes and Gardens, but the one I use the most is called Simply In Season (a World Community Cookbook) by Mary Beth Lind. It is divided into the four seasons and uses seasonal fruits and vegetables to make simple, wonderful meals.

I love the Cake Doctor series! Also, Betty Crocker. But I really get most of my recipes from allrecipes.com -that is such an awesome site.

I like the Woman's Day Cookbook but more often use online sites such as www.allrecipes.com.  The comments really help with modifications.

You know i have so many cook books i have never even used one recipe out of!

The only one i use is my first edition Betty Crocker!!! It was printed in 1950 and has the best desserts in it!
The only problem is that there is a typo on the pie crusts in the conversion from single crust to a 2 crust pie- but thats easily fixable!

I made a baked custard last night out of it and it was absolutely delicious!

I read cookbooks All The Time, my family's built a massive collection over the years. Nigella Lawson's How to be a domestic goddess and How to eat are both brilliant - the recipes are easy and practical but really tasty and I love the way she writes. Her introductions to each one always convince me to make things that I never would have tried otherwise!

Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course is brilliantly useful in a slightly mumsy way - it has pretty much everything in it and explains things really well, but the recipes aren't necessarily that exciting, and can come across a bit bossy.

Oh and Nigel Slater, Toast, is great - probably my favourite to read. Its almost like a novel with recipes in it.

My favorite is an old Dom Deluise book, "Eat This!  It'll Make You Feel Better."  It's full of family stories and celebrity stories.  It's funny and endearing.  I love reading about old Brooklyn.  And its got my favorite cake recipe in it, a gorgeous eggy Italian sponge cake. 

I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart.
