I have a *really* nice set of books I acquired recently from "Low-Carbing Among Friends." It's a series of 3 spiral-bound cookbooks with some tips and tricks, notations, and nutritional info interspersed (unobtrusively). I'm absolutely LOVING the recipes.
I want mostly good basic food, with classic, familiar flavors. While I'll venture out into spicier things now and then, I don't want the majority of a cookbook to be specialty items like this. I want the stuff I can come home home to and not be challenged by unusual tastes. These recipes fit "my bill" very well. A nice adjunct is that several listings are for making your own basics: mayo, rubs, preserved fruit, etc.
These books can be ordered via their website: www.AmongFriends.us
I checked it after seeing another Sparker recommend it, and it's well worth it!
Another book I really like is Nourishing Traditions. It has a little more nutritional background, but is similar in scope. A nice niche cookbook is one called "Cooking With Coconut Flour." I believe I've posted a review on our Book Reviews thread here. The recipes there are developed FOR coconut flour - not adapted to it.
I've got a couple other cookbooks I like, but I don't have them handy at the moment. When I get my hands on them, I'll amend this or repost.
