I have way too many cookbooks! Here's some of my favorites:
The Moosewood series
New Vegetarian Cuisine
Favorite Brand Name Vegetarian cookbook
The Vegetarian Epicure
The Four Ingredient cookbook
The Well-Filled Tortilla
Regional community/church cookbooks
Southern Living Cookbooks
And Pat, I have one published in 1935 called The Household Searchlight Recipe Book that has alot of wild game recipes! Like Squirrel Stew, Hassenpfeffer, Quail, Prairie Chicken, Venison, etc. I remember when I had a farm shooting and cooking grouse, very tasty.
Seems like the best recipes are from friends, I like potlucks for the new and different foods that can be brought.

My Mom's. She hand wrote cookbooks for us kids last Christmas with many of her and my grandmother's recipes. My favorite dishes in her handwriting.

You can have all the specialty cookbooks in the world...but NO kitchen is complete without the "big old yellow" Joy of Cooking.

Ohio - Thanks, you made my day! For Christmas this past year I made family cookbooks for my two daughters. I didn't write out the recipes, but I typed them out, printed one on each page, and then put a family picture on each page, sometimes with a little note, saying who the recipe was originally from, and any memories I had of the times it was served.
I put the pages back to back and then laminated them all. I borrowed a large paper punch, put three holes in them, and tied pretty ribbon through them. I did a different cover for each of the girls, with picture, and dedicated it to them, with love of course. They were thrilled to receive it.
I love your idea of a family journal, with stories. I don't know if I will ever get around to doing it, but it's a great idea!
