emoticon New to this group! I'm Karen. I use a cookbook called Fix It and Forget It Lightly by Phyllis Pellman Good all the time. Crockpot recipes, low fat, low cal and filling and tastes good! The book tells you how many portions and calories, so when done, put into containers, freeze and take to work for lunches. I had beef stew today. It has a ton of veggies seasoned well, and lean meat, and also some low sodium V-8 juice in the broth too. It takes some time to prepare, but worth it! emoticon

At the moment I am focusing on Gizzis Kitchen magic, and Miss Dahls volume of Voluptuous delights. I intend to try all the recipes and put them into the Spark peoples recipe database.

How To Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman & How It All Vegan! have been what I have cooked from this past year equally~

"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."

"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."

Good Housekeeping! Easy recipes that taste great. The other one I use is a black book called Ingredients. It is a bit more complex but equally yummy recipes

I like both Eat What You Like and Eat more of What You Like by Marlene Koch. She has great recipes and includes nutritional info as well as weight Watcher points if you use them. Lost of good, easy recipes with decent size portions

I usually get my recipes of the internet, nowadays, but when I use books I find I keep using Recipes for a Small Planet and Diet for a Small Planet. They are vegetarian cook books from the 1970s. You can read about them here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diet_for_a_Small_Pla

I have been using Pinterest and finding lots of great recipes. Usually, I just go to my binder of collected recipes over the last 45 to 50 years. Santa brought me Cook's Illustrated The Science of Good Cooking and I am loving that book.

Perfect Cooking by Marguerite Patten. (Yes, I'm an overachiever!!)
emoticon

What I love about it is that she gives the basic recipe then shows you how to change it in several ways, some for everyday meals and some for special occasions. And that's how we cook really isn't it? We have basic recipes in our head and then we change them based on what we have in the fridge or who will be eating with us. I've had this book for well over 30 years and my husband recently and very kindly bought me a new copy as the original one was falling apart! I'll keep the old one too though - there are so many memories of learning to cook with this book, it falls open automatically to the recipes I used the most!

Any of the Cooking Light cookbooks. I find I use certain recipes out of a number of them. Really like one of the chicken curry recipes. Uses 9 spices, chicken, onions, yogurt, tomato paste, potatoes. Very flavorful. Even figured out how to make it in my pressure cooker with the uncooked rice nestled in a metal bowl covered with foil. .

The journey is as important as the goal.

Healthy Starts Here! is one of my favorite cookbooks. It is full of info about nutrition as well as tasty and healthy recipes. She adds no salt to most of the recipes and only healthy fats. She is a Canadian comedian and home economist and adds humour to the pages of this book. It is great!!!

We're not vegetarians, but one of my favorite cookbooks is The Vegetarian Bistro, by Marlena Spieler. I love French cooking, and this book "lightens" it up a bit. It is, I believe, out of print, but perhaps an Amazon or E-Bay seller has it available.

Lately since I have been craving bread it has been "More from the Gluten Free Gourmet" by Bette Hagman. I keep trying and tweaking her recipes.

For non-baking (and even some of that) my go-to is "The New Best Recipe" from America's Test kitchen.

Joy of Cooking, Betty Crocker, Lion House Cookbook, a family cookbook I made with all our family's favorite recipes gathered far and wide. The family cookbook is actually our number one cookbook, but since it isn't published, I didn't want to list it first. Besides that, it has all kinds of tips for cooking gluten free, which is very helpful since my mother needs a gluten free diet and we have been working for years to learn how to adjust our favorites to make them work.

Why I am sparking:

I want to protect my health, feel better, look better, and have more energy.

ALL the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks: apparently she's my alter ego!

Plus, I have a very tattered, very dog-eared, very food-stained 1960s paperback edition of Betty Crocker, which is my go-to whenever any recipe from any source isn't clear enough, or doesn't give enough information, about cooking times, portion sizes, basic cooking instructions, etc. I'd replace it with the new edition, but I might not be able to find anything in there! emoticon

I mostly use the internet for recipes but I love anything by Julia Childs.

I get most of my cookbooks at the slavation army they usually have a good collection and they are so much less expensive as cookbooks can put a dent in any pocket book!

My favorites are the Fanny Farmer cookbook my parents gave me over 10 years ago when I moved out on my own and the web. FF is my go-to for basics (I can still remember using the one at my parents' for cakes) and I use the internet when I feel the need to be creative. I love to take 3-4 recipes and create my own version of something from those.

Li love cookbooks, just like many of you do.

My favorite cookbooks are at odds with each other: Classic vs Gourmet Vegetarian vs Low-Fat Vegetarian vs Modern Lo-cal Lo-fat vs High Fat, Meat, Raw Dairy

My oldest and favorites go-to cookbooks are: the Joy of Cooking, Deborah Madison Cooks Everything, and Moosewood's Low-Fat Cookbook.

My newest favorites are; Both of the Cook Yourself Thin cookbooks and Sally Fallon's Nourishing Traditions (awesome information on every page in the margins).

I have almost cooked every recipe in the Cook Yourself Thin cookbooks last year. I did not get thin.: They were very good classic and modern tasty recipes. I would like to try them again and use the Nutrition Tracker this time and see if that will work.

I am a cookbook junkie with tons of cookbooks and cooking magazines. My first and most widely referenced cookbook is the "The Joy of Cooking" but right now I am cooking most from Slow Cooker: The Best Cookbook Ever by Diane Philips. Its a great source of very tasty recipes for your slow cooker that are extremely god and not too fussy. I also subscribe to too many cooking magazines. However, I now am collecting most of my recipes from them online. I just added the Paprika app to my I-phone to try and consolidate my online collection. emoticon

Definitely the Joy of Cooking. Along with the great recipes, it just has so much information about different foods and cooking techniques. I really trust this book.

I also like Betty Crocker--especially the vegetable section.

Family-Fun Cookbook is my favorite kids cookbook, and it just has lots of really good food that everyone would enjoy.

I also made a collection of family favorites, which is probably really the most used, but since it isn't published, I put my favorite published books. This is especially good for my family since we adapted the recipes for a gluten-free diet when my mom was diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Now everyone in the family has great recipes that they know Mom can eat.

I want to protect my health, feel better, look better, and have more energy.

I have a Betty Crocker cookbook from the early 90's that gets the most use. Other than that, I have a binder with recipes I've printed up from the internet.

I have a middling collection of cookbooks, but the ones that see the most use are my collection of bound Cook's Illustrated magazines from 1998-2005. At some point I'm going to buy the 2006-2011 bound magazines, too. They are incredibly helpful because the recipes explain so much about the science behind successful cooking. There is an index for finding recipes, fortunately!

I love this thread! I now have a wishlist of all the cookbooks I want (I need to get ahold of this Joy of Cooking!).

I tend to alternate between an omnivore and a vegetarian diet, so my two go-to cookbooks are Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything and Deborah Madison's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. I also love Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen because I LOVE soups emoticon

Weight loss does not require perfection. It requires perseverance.

I love The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger. I also just got Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook, My Father's Daughter. Liked it so much that it inspired me to post about it on my food blog, SiciLean. You can check it out at www.SiciLean.com if you are interested. I would say that those are the 2 books that I've used the most this summer.

In good health,

My most frequently used cookbook has to be my Fanny Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook. For basic recipes and lots of ideas, it's definitely my 'go-to' book. I have the 1959 - 10th edition, having completely worn out the 1951 edition that my mom got at her wedding!

I love to reference Wayne Glissen's Professional Cooking. It is great for general knowledge and technique.

I also use Southern Living for anything fried and sometimes desserts

The fishmonger's cookbook for seafood nights.

I get Food and Wine magazine monthly and cook some delicious items from there as well.

For pasta, I reference Sauces and pour them over homemade noodles.

I have a couple of Food and Wine Annual Recipe books that I reference quite often. I also have Cook's Illustrated annual editions that I purchased from an estate sale. I have a cookbook problem, guilty. The other one I use frequently is a Chinese cookbook and I can't remember the name of it. Allrecipes.com is a favorite as well.

Right now I am cooking my way through "Vegan on the Cheap" by Robin Robertson. I have a bad (or good?) habit of buying more cookbooks when I've only used a couple of recipes from my other cookbooks. So far there's only been one recipe (I've tried about a dozen) that I haven't liked.

My favorite cookbook is one I have made of my favorite recipes I've gathered over the years. Since most of them were high in calories (wonder why I gained weight? lol), I have started a new cookbook that I've labeled "Healthy Eating". Any recipe that I read that sounds like something we would enjoy, I print it & add it to my new cookbook.

My favorite and most used is the Jasper County HEA cookbook. My grandmother was a member and it has some of the most delicious recipes in it. However, I'm quiet sure that the nutritional information isn't in there for more than one reason. I try to substitute where I can, but it's full of tried and true recipes from multiple generations of Home Extension women from the farming community I grew up in.

I don't even know. I use tons. I like "How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking", "How To Eat", and "Kitchen", all by Nigella Lawson. I use my mom's old "Joy of Cooking" all the time too. Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" (both volumes) get used all the time. Hmmm...Jamie Oliver's "Cook With Jamie." Isa Chandra Moscovitz's "Veganomicon" (spectacular if you're even part-time vegetarian- you definitely don't have to be a vegan to love that one.) And my Larousse "Gastronomie", if that counts as a cookbook, but I think of it as more of a reference book.

Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi.

It has amazing vegetarian recipes using delicious vegetables and whole, healthful foods. Many of which can be adjusted to fit almost any dietary restrictions. The photographs are amazing, too. I think I offended my boyfriend when I told him I wanted to marry that cookbook!

I have 2 favorites. Teriyaki Beef Soup and Potato Chowder.

Teriyaki Beef Soup
8 oz boneless beef sirloin steak
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 14oz cans beef broth
1 cup water
1 cup bie-size strips carrots
1/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 Tbsp grated ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups coarsely chopped broccoli
1/4 cup sliced green onion
3 Tbsp teriyaki Sauce
1 Tsp toasted sesame oil
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Put steak in a skillet on med low and cook til there is no more pink. Meanwhile put rest of ingredients into a 12qt stockpot and cook covered 30-35 or until rice and veggies are tender.

Potato Chowder
8 cups diced potatoes
1/3 cup chopped onion
3 cans (14.5oz each) chicken broth
1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1/4 tsp pepper
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, cubed
1/2lb sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled, optional
minced chives, optional

In a 5qt slow cooker, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hrs or until potatoes are tender. Add cream cheese, stir until blended. Garnish with bacon and chives if desired.

The teriyaki beef soup I found on a website, can't find it any more. I found the potato chowder in the taste of home best church supper recipes. I hope you enjoy them although I don't know the nutritional facts for them.

I'm definitely a 'cherry picker' when it comes to recipes. I have a wall of cookbooks I've collected over my life--some my gram, aunt, etc. have given me, some from everyplace you can imagine. I find fabulous recipes from magazines, group cookbooks, and friends recipe box;) When I am in search of a recipe for an event, I look in a few books I have,library, bookstore, online, ask culinary friends--one who has even more cookbooks than I do, and then I ask on here, which I am doing today. I need a wor won ton Soup recipe for a dinner party. I know it's all about the broth. Any ideas for a great soup?

xxoo

New book I found and highly recommend: Rocco DeSpirito's 'Now Eat This!'.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I teach because I love to Learn!

I love, love, love junior league cookbooks. Portland's Palate is my all-time fave, but it's not really what you would call weight loss oriented...

They have a chocolate chip cheesecake that my family fights over!

I'm all about the internet. I do own a few cookbooks, but my computer and spark recipes are the first place I look lately.

I use the web... I find recipes that catch my eye in Cooking Light, or on the WW website, or here on SparkPeople. I copy the recipe to a document on my computer and then just pull up the doc when I need a refresher of ingredients and procedures.

On the shelf, I have Joy of Cooking, How to Cook Everything, WW Simply the Best, Cooking Light, Hungry Girl, and Better Homes and Gardens. They all come off the shelf for a visit now and then.
