My favorite one is the "Comfort Foods" cookbook.

I have given up on really following her recipes; but I do use them as "inspiration." I have access to a lot of stores with exotic ingredients--but my budget wouldn't appreciate that kind of shopping!

I like Rachel Ray's show 30 Mminute Meals. She seems to use more things that I can fine at the store. Most of the meals she cooks on the show are easy and quick.
I also like Joann Lund cookbooks. I'm diabetic (type2) so I have to watch for the extra carbs, sugars and fat. Lund has several books and they are all healthy but easy and quick to fix. She even has a recipe for diabetic sweetened condensed milk, and powdered sugar, sour cream, etc.! Best of all, so far none of her recipes taste like drab diabetic food. I think I have 4 of her cookbooks.
I had quite a collection before I became a diabetic, and now am collecting diabetic recipes mostly. I'm also learning how to convert my old recipes to diabetic friendly.
By the way, read the labels on some of those 'fat free' products and see they're not too healthy for you either! I go for the reduced fat stuff as it doesn't have as many bad things in them.

Vivian, I have a bunch of Joanna Lund's books, too. She seems really down to earth and uses ingredients that can be easily found. I remember watching her some years back on QVC, and she always did such a great job demonstrating her recipes, I always wanted one of everything!

Liz, I wish I'd seen her. When I found out I was type 2 diabetic due to Zocor damaging my pancreas (sp) my friend gave me one of her books. I tried a few of the recipes without telling dh, and he loved what I was fixing. Its really helped me to keep on my diet as its satisfying. She has great deserts too!
The Lund books are for anyone, but diabetic friendly too. If you're in a book store, or library check them out.

I just bought an Amish Heritage Cookbook. I doubt its actually Ahish because iot calls for stuff you can buy in the store ex-can of tuna, can of condensed soup.
The Amish are known for their homecanning and such.
Plus there is a photo of the authors grandmother. Photos of the Amish is a big NO-NO.

No I don't collect cookbooks. My mom does though. I only buy ones that I will use a lot of and that interest me. I will keep cookbooks that was my moms when she was younger though. I will pass those down to my daughter when she's older.

Coll, LOL about the "Amish" cookbook! Sounds like just plain country cooking to me. But I bet there are good recipes in there regardless.
