Top Three Cookbooks

Sometimes it's hard to find recipes that taste good and are healthy. That's when I take the time to be creative in the kitchen. However, I'll admit that instead of re-inventing the wheel I prefer to use my favorite cookbooks and save the creative juices for the sewing room and our budget.

I found it hard to narrow it down since I do have several cookbooks I use on a somewhat regular basis, but here are my top three favorite cookbooks.

America's Best Bread Machine Recipes - By Donna Washburn
I tried several different bread machine recipe books. This is the only one I use now. We love all the recipes. When I made the homemade pizza this was the book that I used for the pizza dough recipe.

Betty Crocker's Picture Cookbook (1950's version)- By Betty Crocker Editors

Every kitchen needs the cookbook. It's filled to the gills with all the great basics that every cook needs to know. If I forget how long to bake a potato or how to cook a type of meat I know that Betty has me covered!

Deceptively Delicious -By Jessica Seinfeld
I'm sure I'm not the only mom who struggles to get their kids to eat veggies. This wonderful cookbook has helped me expand my thinking on the many ways to sneak veggie in. She also has wonderful information about teaching your kids about food choices and nutritional information for the fruits and vegetables she uses.

These are my top three must have cookbooks. What are your top three?

I LOVE America's Test Kitchen's Family Cookbook. It's the book I pull out 80% of the time. It's almost impossible to screw up those recipes and they're so tasty.
