Do you have a favorite cookbook?

I love cookbooks!!!!In fact, I LOVE collecting them! I have two shelves of cookbooks in my pantry!! I know that you can get pretty much any recipe online...and I do get recipes from there when I am in a crunch. However, to me there is just something special about looking through an actual cookbook.  It brings back memories to me of special times with my family. I also enjoy reading any notes/stories that  is put into a cookbook...ahhh...the history of recipes...fascinates me.

I have several cookbooks from my hometown....that I pretty much use almost weekly.....and then I have some that I have purchased or received as gifts. Here are a few of those:

The Pioneer Woman cookbook is one of my favorites. I love her pictures, stories and recipes. So does my Hubby....he says you can never go wrong when you use one of her recipes.  Maybe he likes the fact that she lives in Oklahoma...which is where he was born....so he is a bit partial...but the recipes are AMAZING!
The Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks are also ones that I use all the time. My sister was telling me that their Crock Pot Cookbook is one of her favorites...that will be the next one for me to get on my list. The recipes are simple and yummy!

Anyways...just wanted to share a couple of them that I love...

Do you all have any favorites....if so what are they?? Or...do you prefer finding recipes online?

It must be from your Grandma Bradfield's side-Grams loved cookbooks, too and I inherited all her cookbooks...gobs and gobs of them. I love reading them, too! What treasures! The one I go back to time and time again though, is the trusty original Betty Crocker. The good old orange one.
