I like browsing cookbooks. Nothing like some good food porn.
The more pictures the better. Tease me and entice me. . .
I originally borrowed this one from the library.
I found an excellent chocolate chip cookie recipe here.
I was on the search for my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe at the time.
I did replace the corn syrup with pure maple syrup per Comet's suggestion and it made these even better.
I liked the book so much, that I bought a copy for my home library.

Recommends it for: loves to cook or think they might
For a starting Cook, this book has it all, from Meats and Fish to Grains, Breakfast to Dessert. Davis adds in extra tips, such as how long a dish will last after cooking, best ways to store it, and other ways to prepare it. I like the litte side bars that have interesting facts and notes about cooking, making it seem more personal. A great cookbook for a starter or pro.

I borrowed it from the library.

I think this could be a cook "go-to" book for someone who needs a great reference cookbook.

I'm not gonna buy it for myself, but it might make a good gift for someone just starting to cook for themselves.

Flavorful recipes and thoughtful explanations, to both prevent missteps and encourage improvisation.

Try the roasted cauliflower -- I never thought this bland veg could taste so good!

Excellent cookbook. Highly recommended. Straight-forward recipes with a dash of personality. Member of the James Beard foundation. I look at kale in a whole new light ;)
