Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook

I love Cook’s Illustrated. I first became familiar with them when I was getting married. At my bachelorette party, I was gifted with The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook. I LOVED IT! It was a great cookbook for cooking the basics and expanding a little bit beyond it. What I really liked was the little sidebar tidbits for suggested cookware items or specific brands of ingredients. I have gifted this cookbook to several other future brides to be.

Since then, I have periodically bought their magazine.  It’s usually a “Best Of” one.  What I really enjoy about their recipes is that they give you the reasons why they took the steps they did or used certain ingredients.  I know that if I follow their recipes, I will get a a really good version of whatever recipe.  It may not be the way I like it but it gives me a good base for me to go off and do my own thing.

I was excited to see that they sell a compilation of their magazines on Amazon.  Woo hoo!  Now instead of magazines cluttering up my bookshelves, I can add more books!  Heh heh heh…
