Some cookbooks are like old friends. You know the ones, they are loved, worn, messy, and perhaps even falling apart.
Growing up my Mom had this cookbook. We had some favorite recipes from it, and I still do. I wouldn't call this my favorite recipe book- but it has some great basic recipes for going back to.
I love cookbooks and I loved getting new ideas and inspiration from them. I am not one to follow any recipe completely- I love altering and making each recipe my own.
What is your favorite cookbook? Why?
