2: The America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

If you have ever watched the Test Kitchen show on PBS you will know why I love this book. They have over 1,200 tested recipes in this cookbook. I love to watch the show because of the different tips they have for you when cooking a certain recipe. They have tested each recipe out and come up with different techniques to make it better. This is great because you know it will turn out wonderfully if you follow their tricks.
