I love hearing about which cookbooks people enjoy using as it helps me broaden my recipe index.

Here are my favorites:
Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals 2
The Cake Mix Doctor
William Sonoma Classics (*love* the photography of the recipes, makes me drool :))

My favorite cookbook is a magazine - Sunset Magazine. It's chock full of new and interesting recipes every month. We've subscribed for years and have many favorite recipes out of that magazine. If you're a subscriber, you can search for recipes on their web site so you don't need to remember what issue the recipe was in.

They publish lots of cookbooks too.

I probably use my Cooking Light cookbooks more than anything.

I also love one that I got at a cooking class one time, "The Kitchen Diva" by Claudine Destino. It's got a lot of Southern classics that are updated and so they are hip and fun.

I like the Cooking Light ones as well, and I also have a really good dessert cookbook called "American Desserts." Everything in it is so classic. They have things like vinegar pie, that you would never think to make but which people used to make all the time.
