    So what was your first cookbook?

    My first was "The Kids Cookbook: Yum! I eat it" by Patricia Barrett-Dragan. It was given to me when I was 7 (22 years ago) by my father's girlfriend. I still have it around the house, believe it or not, though I Don't actually cook from it anymore. ;f

    I admit, this is something of a fluff thread, but the "sloppy joe" post brought back memories.

    My first cookbook was from a turn of the century with recipies so exotic and wonderful, it was like reading fairy tales. In fact, that's exactly the role it played for me. Most of the recipies I still could not recreate today, and probably never will (bear paws in lemon marinade, etc.) Anyway, it was entertaining.

    Betty Crocker of course!

    I thought that was just the best cookbook, until....
    I recently bought a cookbook from Mama Dip called, "Mama Dips Kitchen" She's from N.C, and she has all the southern food recipes in her book. They are easy to follow recipes, and good too!
