I actually have 2 favorites.

Vegetables and Vegetarian cooking by Roz Denny and Christine Ingram. This book has everything in it!!

I just ordered this one a few months ago Joy of Cooking - the all new and revised edition and its fast becoming my favorite as well. It too has everything in it and so many wonderful tips and explainations.

Whats yours?

Any church cook books, I have quite a few.
Also - The Betty Crocker Cook Book. It was my first and still one of my faves!
I also use a Blue Ribbon Cookbook: recipes from state Fairs which is really good.

I have quite a few including my grandmother's old Good Housekeeping cookbook that is splattered and stained on the many pages that she used the most often.:) However, the one that I use the most is Mennonite Country Style Recipes and Kitchen Secrets bu Esther H. Shank. I kept borrowing it from the library and finally just got my own copy!!! It's got wonderful recipes and every single one I have made is a winner. I've got bookmarks throughout it with our family favorites.:D

Wow, that's a tough question! I love community/church cookbooks. Real recipes for regular people like me. Favorite Recipes from Quilters by Louise Stoltzfus has recipes like that in it. Also enjoy The American Country Inn + Bed & Breakfast cookbooks by Kitty & Lucian Maynard.

For general info I like The Joy of Cooking, Betty Crocker and Good Housekeeping.

Love cookbooks and have to struggle not to buy more.
I think the best recipes come from friends like you who make them and enjoy them with your families.:heartsm:

I love any of the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks- I think "Quick and Easy" is my favorite of those.

I love my Better Homes & Gardens cook book- it was the first cookbook I bought when I moved out on my own because I wanted some poached eggs and had no clue how to do it! It's a great book for learning the basics like pudding, fried chicken etc.

I also love my Prime Time Emeril book for Sunday dinners, then of course my 3 ring binder with recipies from friends, family and stuff I print off foodtv.com.

I need to replace mine, it was the 89-90 Better Homes and
Gardens, the big one with everything in it!
My got worn out and I need another.
The newer one I am afraid won't have the same recipes, I tried a new BC one but it was just not the same.
I need a good all around from scratch book!

I love my old Betty Crocker cookbook. I have the 1940s Betty Crocker picture cookbook. It has wonderful recipes in it. I also have several church and local groups cookbooks that I love. My hospital put one out this year for the Children's Miracle Network and I use it all the time. I even put several recipes in it. :D
