My favorite cookbook is not one that has been published, but one that my grandmother wrote that contains many of the family recipes. My grandmother made copies for all of her grandchildren, but sadly, I'm the only one who uses it as my 2 cousins refuse to cook. The cookbook has everything from stuffed cabbage to snickerdoodles. Since I've had to cut gluten out of my diet, it's my goal this year to rework the recipes to be gluten free so that I can still enjoy all the yummy foods I grew up eating.

I no longer have a favorite cookbook (because of the gluten sensitivity), but I'm planning to check these out when I get back to my own kitchen...The Healthy Gluten-Free Life, and The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guide.

My mother is also gluten-free, but she's got a good repertoire of recipes and not much trouble changing some to gluten-free; she doesn't use cookbooks much now, but does occasionally try some recipes and cuts out some from magazines, still.

Cooking for geeks by Jeff Potter is the only cookbook I read for fun.
But the one I used the more to cook good things was a book about desserts with cornflour that my mother had when I was a child. I forgot the title.

I don't really have a favorite, but currently I've loved looking at Fuchsia Dunlop's "Every Grain Of Rice" that has been described as *the* Chinese cookbook to have - it has great pics, the recipes look easy and some are vegetarian or can be changed to one. The author has lived in China and really does know her stuff. :)

I really wish I cooked, haha. I'm very lazy. But I have one called So Easy: Luscious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week by Ellie Krieger that I like and should use more.

I like One Pot, One Bowl at the moment, I like cooking to be simple.
