My favorite cookbook is a William's Sonoma Potato cookbook. Potatoes and I have this thing. There are only 20 or so recipes but I love to look at the pictures. Other than that, I go to a Southern Living Annual Recipe Book (2004), Betty Crocker's New Recipes, and Pillsbury's Baking Book.
I have a Better Home's and Gardens magazine subscription and have had it for years, but again I think it's a pictures thing! I've clipped all the recipes that look good and maybe one of these days I'll try one of them.
Most of my recipes I get from allrecipes.com. Their rating system rocks. I know if something is 5 star and has been reviewed almost a thousand times that it won't completely suck.
