    The best basic book in the world of cooking. There are so many ideas in every version. The old ones are really fun too.

    A classic. I can't remember the last time I actually used a recipe for anything, but when you can't remember exactly how much baking soda goes into two cups of flower or why fresh pumpkin doesn't taste like squash, this is the source. What your mother told you and you forgot. It's all there.

    This book is my go to book when I am cooking and come across terms I don't know. My baking improved considerably when I realized that there were actually different ways to mix stuff and that it mattered. I bought this for my dad, who is a fantastic cook, hoping he would find some value in it. He actually refers to it all of the time because it is the one book that covers everything. A must have.

      I think this is going to be the next book I buy for myself -- the art of cooking has somewhat eluded me all these years.

    I am not a very good cook, but I do know how to read. If you also know how to read, get this book. It covers all the basics like roasts and cookies, and it also has some fantastic, simple recipes that will knock the socks off the folks at your table. I personally recommend the artichoke dip, my speciality. I refuse to tell anyone where I got the recipe - but I just told you, didn't I? I really could not live without this. My family would starve.

    my cooking bible. and that's saying a lot; i'd been using my mom's better homes and gardens book since i was a kid, and this book actually usurped even ITS authority.

    this is the bible of cookbooks. no pretty pictures. no celebrity chef backing. just basic techniques and information about ingredients that every good cook should know.

    I grew up on Mrs. Rombauer. All her recipes have that fine elegant touch that make them perfect for everyday and company. Right now I'm using a spiral edition, especially handy but I'm not sure it it's still available. Whatever the format, Mrs. Rombauer will become the heart of your kitchen for traditional America cuisine. .

    This book contains the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. While it lacks pictures and fancy tools and ingredients, the Joy of Cooking has the essential recipes and is simple to follow.
