Do you have any stand-bys? I find that I frequently reach for the same three (Better Homes & Gardens, Joy of Cooking and the Pilbury Book of Baking), despite having a full library of different books - including a bunch from William Sonoma, where I KNOW the recipes will be uber-delicious. I just don't think to grab them!

  • I probably have over a hundred recipe books. I barely open them. I use the old standbys in my head. If I need something I go online. I also try recipes from tv shows.

  • I have...5 I think...and I very rarely use them. If I'm looking for a recipe I know one of them has, I'll grab whichever one, but otherwise I ask someone who's made what I want or I go to
