This is my favorite book of 2010 because I've opened this book more than any other in the past year! I rely on it for just about everything from meatballs to pumpkin pie. Only problem I had with it was that a lot of the recipes mention use of a food processor which I did not have until this last year.

I'll just say it: I am not a good cook. But I want to try! And this book has so many simple recipes and detailed explanations on cooking techniques that I am inspired and motivated to pick maybe one recipe at a time and try it. I am now convinced that I will slowly but surely be able to teach myself how to cook, and actually find Joy in the process.

Scribner Book Company -
by Library Journal,
"[T]his revised American classic is essential. The recipes are still unfussy....No matter how far the new Joy has altered its initial purpose, it remains one of the most complete, all-purpose cookbooks available."
Since its original publication in 1939, Joy of Cooking has been the most authoritative cookbooks in America. Now updated for the first time in more than twenty years, this popular reference is better than ever.
