I love Alton Brown's cook books. I also have the old Homes and Gardens one. Those are the 2 I use most. A few years ago, I made a family cookbook that has all the family recipes I use in it. I gave it out as a Christmas present.

I'mma veer off topic for a second and mention my most treasured cookbooks. 

I have painstakingly, over many years of thrift-shop hunting, gathered a full collection of the Time-Life Foods of the World cookbooks.  (Yes, I know it's easier now, but this was mostly before eBay was a thing.)

I love, love, love those books!  I seldom make anything from them, but they're terrific reading, and the things I have made from them have been wonderful.  And authentic!  They were beautifully researched and photographed, and they're a last glimpse of a time before fusion cuisine and Diet Everything.

Yes, I'm a nerd.  :D

Sister! I adore these books and have most of them, along with their recipe booklets. I read them like they're storybooks, and they really are.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
