I like to cook, but I don't know how?

Do you love to cook, but you really don't know how?!  Well the first thing you need to do is find the perfect cookbook!  My first cookbook was Cooking Light Complete Cookbook.

It is $37 at Barnes n Noble, or only $23 on amazon.com.  This is the perfect beginners cookbook, because it is not just a cookbook!  It comes with information on what cookware to buy, what veggies are in season when, how to perform different techniques (ie. braising, roasting, marinating, etc), and how to plan for a party (complete with menus)!!!  It is conventiently seperated into 14 tabbed sections so you can easily search for that perfect appetizer or chicken dish fast!  Also, it comes with nutrition values for every meal, multiple pictures, and how long it takes to make.  I could ramble on and on about this cookbook, but I won't... Just buy it and you won't be sorry!

If you know of any other great cookbooks, let me know! I'm trying to find another good one, but, being the indecisive person I am, I take forever to decide what to buy!

Happy Baking!
