One of my Favorites which is long out of print is "Mama Leone's Italian Cooking" by Gene Leone. In addition to the recipes you get a little bit of information about the dish and an antedote about a time it was served in the famous New York Restaurant.

Re: More Great Cookbooks

There are so many great cookbooks today that it can take quite a bit of time to choose one. But a staple that I've had in my kitchen (even as a kid) is the Betty Crocker Cookbook Also among my favorites are: Eat This Book, Everyday Italian, Lidia's Italian-American Kitchen, Risottos, and, believe it or not, my two Cooking with Mickey cookbooks that I bought in Walt Disney World in the early 90s. One of my daughter's favorite meals, cottage pie, comes from a Mickey cookbook.

Re: More Great Cookbooks

One of my all time favorites is the very first cookbook I ever owned. Scolastics "Peanuts Cookbook" with such classics as Red Baron Root Beer, Freida's French Toast, Schroder's Chocolate Sauce, Happiness is a Hot Tomato and Cheese sandwich, and Violet's Hot Dog Sandich.

They were all very simple recipes designed for kids with adult supervision and each recipe had a covering page with "Peanuts" cartoons having to do with food, usually Snoopy's Supper.

Re: More Great Cookbooks

I love children's cookbooks; although I never had one myself. But we had a couple of Disney ones in our house while my children were growing up. They both liked to try recipes out of the book, as well as helping me bake Christmas cookies. One completely feel apart from use; the other is still sitting on my shelf awaiting the next generation.
