Favorite Cookbooks

I don't know about you, but I basically have ADD when it comes to dinner. I have a couple of recipes that I consider my standards, but for the most part I'm always trying something new. While I love pinning and trying recipes from Pinterest, I really prefer cooking out of cookbooks. You know that those authors really put in the time to test each recipe so you know that the directions are correct and that what you make is definitely going to turn out. Here are a couple of my favorites:

The Skinny Taste Cookbook
I got this in Jeff's family gift exchange last Christmas, and I seriously love it! Jeff and I often have a hard time eating healthy because we love rich and flavorful meals, and this is showing us how to make tweaks to our favorites to make them fit into a healthier lifestyle. It also has my new all-time favorite recipes for fish and for baking or grilling vegetables. I'm definitely putting their new SkinnyTaste Fast and Slow cookbook on my wishlist!

The goal of Keepers is to show you easy, weeknight meals that make it so much easier for me to actually cook instead of ordering delivery when I get home at night. This cookbook has a lot of ways to speed up the cooking process, like making lasagna made in a skillet or using puff pastry to make an easy chicken pot pie. They also have my favorite recipe for fancying up those boneless, skinless chicken breasts! The book is also really fun to read, the authors fill it with stories and advice that make it more than just your average cookbook.

Betty Crocker Cookbook
This book is a classic for a reason: it's filled with those recipes that just taste like home, and is also full of cooking skills and tips to teach even the most amateur chef different techniques to improve their kitchen skills. It's such a classic that we actually have two copies in our house! Everything in the book is great, but I swear by Betty's chocolate chip cookie recipe .

What are some of your favorite cookbooks?
