What reference, do-it-yourself, or other book that wouldn't conventionally be read cover to cover, is your inspiration or constant companion?

Well, why don't I start this off? I referenceThe Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread almost daily! It's been sharing space on the counter with Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day a lot since I got it, though. Fantastic books if you ever wanted to learn what you don't know about making fantastic bread at home.

Donna | 1350 comments For things I know I should know, but don't: "An Incomplete Education: 3,684 Things You Should Have Learned but Probably Didn't" by Judy Jones & William Wilson. If my teachers had been this entertaining, I probably would have retained it better.
And for all things kitchen: "The Way to Cook" by Julia Child. I can follow a recipe just fine, but thanks to Julia, I can also cook without one - and make a perfectly boiled egg.
