    My mother-in-law gave me one when my wife and I first got married. It's an old Lousiana cookbook, chock full of stuff that can make your cholesterol go through the roof. There's even a recipe for how to cook 'gator. Personally, I'll stick with the hush puppies. :-)

    'The home book of Indian cookert' by Sipra Das Gupta. Many great recipes in an easy to follow style, with happy memories attached to several of the dishes.

    I searched for this one and it is available on-line. Would recommend for anyone who loves authentic Indian food.

    Out of thirty or forty cookbooks in the house, I keep only two on a table in the kitchen: Larousse "Gastronomique," and Edouard de Pomiane "French Cooking in Ten Minutes." Between them, you need never eat poorly.

    I asked this question because I pulled out an old favorite tonight that I kind of forgot about.  It's Mediterranean Light by Martha Rose Shulman.  I like it because it's veggie- and whole foods heavy while including healthy recipes for meat dishes.  When I have a lot of something in my garden, whether it's swiss chard or eggplant, I can find several ways to cook it in Mediterranean Light.

    But I have to say, Hubpages is quickly becoming a favorite, too!

    A cookbook called "Talk About Good." It's all about southern and Cajun food. I live in New Orleans, so I love cooking the food of the culture here. If you love southern food, this is the cookbook Bible you need. Seriously.

    the first is often the best - my favourite is "Not Just a Load of Old Lentils" by Rose Elliot, the first vegetarian cookbook that I bought when I left home and became a vegetarian nearly 30 years ago. It contains my favourite recipes for nut roast and banana bread!
