    The Joy of Cooking is one of my staples! I don’t usually use it for the recipes. I use it for the instructions – how to cut artichoke, how long to microwave a potatoes, how to hard boil eggs. I actually gave it to a friend for Christmas this year. She is just starting her cooking adventures and I wanted her to have this!

    The Silver Spoon is the one I have open all the time in my kitchen, not just great recipes but also great info on various measurement units, ingredients, and much more. A good cookbook is actually worth its weight in gold :D Best, Allan.
