As a caution and in case you didn't notice, I've updated my response to you about gift you thought of getting your friend (Bigger Bolder Baking). Several reviewers reported getting really damaged hardcover books. It's so strange.
Catbatty -- Thx so much for the info. I tried (and liked) a few of her recipes but it has been a few years -- so unfortunately don't recall which ones other than I think a simple chocolate cake and some cookies.

No cookbook buying for me --- but thought I would post.
I don't think I've heard of her popular blog before ... dessert blog, Cookies & Cups --- just popped up on my Amazon page suggestions. The Cookies & Cups Cookbook: 125+ sweet & savory recipes reminding you to Always Eat Dessert First

For French cuisine, I enjoy reading the book of Alain Ducasse recently, actually I found the recipe very clear and easy to follow, it is easy to get the books, also could try them out Here , they have some good recipes well explained
And I love to watch recipe videos, I found some good instructions for asian cooking. I mean it is hard to read the asian book I guess, but a lot of the videos are low quality or just aren't that delicious. So I found out several good author to follow, like:
* wang gang, he is a Chinese chef and really really skilled. and he has a very funny and real uncle haha I love hime....expemple here with the uncle cooking together * Lei's simple life， a new channel and the recipes are authentique and well explained in English too, she has 3 languages versions and you could see she is quite skilled too....a recipe soooo good here
And for Japanese cooking, I love to read some books Japanese Soul Cooking by Tadashi Ono & Harris Salat, bought it from a local book store.
I often try different types of cookings and the result sometimes is very suprising..... Nice cooking day
One I would have overlooked had in not shown up often in a FB group is 100 Cookies. I have a lot of baking books and have gotten to the point that I thought I would be hard pressed to ever "need" another cookie books. In addition, this title makes it sound like one of those run of the mill standard cookies repeated or restated in ways you wished they hadn't bothered, but I was wrong. If you have seen the popular Neapolitan Cookies on the internet, that is perhaps the most popular recipe from the book. Good -- and I want to try some of the 3rd flavor variations I've seen people making (blueberries instead of strawberry, pistacchio, etc.), but you really owe it to yourself to try the Raspberry Rye Cookies. The ones we made were darker -- my rye flour was whole grain, but the the flavor couldn't have been better. We made them while my son and his GF were here, but for just DH and me, I would bake a few then freeze balls of dough and thaw then add the fresh raspberry in the center to bake a few at a time because fresh baked they are perfection.
Thank you, Beth. I would love to hear about any others you try from that book. I have the book in Ebook format!!! Looks like it gets many MANY happy reviews!!! I am excited. Can you tell??!! I got it from the library and have not opened it yet. OH BOY!
Here is one of mine I want to try soon: I took it to bed about a week or two ago and have not been able to get it out of my mind. It's only enough dessert for two, but I am intrigued to try some of the good looking recipes. (The so few groceries to waste on testing is one thing that appeals to me. Plus, I really enjoyed reading the author's comments. Everything looks so doable and yummy. ): Dessert For Two: Small Batch Cookies, Brownies, Pies, and Cakes by Christina Lane

Not a cookbook, but noticed Eating Well Mag is on sale for $3.75 (subject to change in 20 seconds knowing Amazon).
Anyone get cooking magazines? I did see a popup on my laptop advertising Cooking Light (I think it is being published 4x a year or something). I've never seen the mag since they joined with Eating Well. Anyone buy/subscribe?

I read about this one a few days ago. I've tried a few of her recipes in the past, and they have all been really good!
This book looks interesting (the chickpea recipe in the preview pages on Amazon sounds great). Hard to believe I haven't been in a library in a year. Off to see if they have this in kindle form (I need some "reading" while on the train).
