So far, I’ve had the best experiences and most consistent results using recipes from magazines that do extensive recipe testing (or cookbooks that compile said magazines’ recipes); I’ve more often than not been disappointed with recipes from “celebrity chefs” or random cookbooks from the bargain section of the bookstore. Here’s a list of my favorite books, where most of the recipes on this blog come from!
- The New Best Recipe
- America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
- America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book
- The Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook
