Frances English After I married, the "Joy of cooking" was my first cook book that I absolutely fell in love with. Mine had all the battle scars of my early cooking days from drips,spills,dozens of favorite tags, stars for ratings and many additional recipes cut from magazines tucked inside. I used it so much and so often over the years it looked abused even to the point that its spine came apart and I applied tons of tape to hold it together. I felt so strongly about this book that I gave a newer addition as a gift to my daughter-in-law. Now you might think that is all a very average attraction until you consider that after having a restaurant and having an extensive library of cook books [40+]it is practically the only one from which I have recipes memorized by heart.

Elyse Oh me too... Mom gave me her war torn edition and I added a newer one with even more recipes. Absolutely on the oldie but goodie shelf.
