I love cookbooks and have gazillions. I used to use them, but since I lost my husband, I haven't been really cooking. I'll get back to it. I've been looking at some of the new WW books, and they really have some good recipes in them. My husband and I loved to try to recipes. I will do it again!

I love them, I love the pictures and stories and I have tons of cookbooks so I don't buy them. When I find a recipe I love in a cookbook, I copy it to a card after I've tweaked it to my liking and keep it in the recipe file in the kitchen.

Love cookbooks. Especially the ones from Taste of Home -- they always have great recipes, that have common, easily found ingredients. The new 'comfort food diet' book and the simply delicious magazine have lots of healthy low-point recipes.

I love cookbooks, but now--- have way too many. I do use certain ones and also have most of my recipes now from the books, typed up and on index cards or in my word documents.

I have my favorites that I know pretty much by heart now. I do like to try new recipes from W8W and Spark and found some great ones too, also from Spark buddies. I like to look up recipes on Cooks.com and Kraft Family and have many really good ones. Love to cook and try new things. My youngest daughter and I both do this a lot. We have a great big vegetable and vegetarian cookbook with really yummy ideas and recipes too.
