How to Buy a Good Cookbook (And Use It!)
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Do you love to cook? Do you hate to cook? Either way, a cookbook is a good tool for you to use. What's in a cookbook? What kind should you buy? How do you use a cookbook?
 
2     First of all, you need to find a good, basic cookbook. They are sold in many different stores. Try looking in your local bookstore. They will probably have the best variety.
 
3     Look for a cookbook with a lot of information in it. Make sure it has a variety of recipes. Don't get one that has just one kind of food in it. "Man does not live on bread alone!"
 
4     Look through some of the cookbooks on the shelves. See what's inside. A good cookbook will have lots of pictures and charts. And, of course, recipes!
 
5     Look in the table of contents to see how the cookbook is organized. There should be recipes for many kinds of foods. It should include recipes for all parts of a meal. It should have appetizers, salads, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts.
