    I'm not really one to use cook books, I kinda just experiment... But the one cook book I do love is "like grandma used to make"... It gets a work out!

    I like bestrecipes.com Taste.com can have some pretty crappy recipes. Best thing is to read the reviews, people give good tips if the recipe didn't really work.
    My favourite cookbook is Nigella Express, just practical easy dinners. Her double chocolate chip cookies are devine! She has a good website with all her recipes there. I love Nigella

    I've been wanting that cookbook for ages (the cooks companion) and you reminded me about it again. The other one I use a lot is my Jenny Craig and csiro cookbooks. Nothing fancy, just simple healthy dinners.

    I also trawl through taste.com, donnahay.com and allrecipes.com at least a couple of times a week

    No - first thing I made was pork scratchings!! My husband wants me to try the poached egg method though. I need to get a kitchen thermometer / digital probe first - nearly all his recipes require accurate temperature readings.

    The reviews/comments are my favourite feature of taste.com.au - always best to see how others have tweaked a recipe to get it right! There are some bad recipes on there, but when I search I sort by "highest rated", so I get the ones with the best reviews & often more comments on method/ingredients etc.

    Oh, and one more cookbook I love - "Woman's Weekly The Country Table". Really old fashioned recipes, but I haven't had a dud from it yet.

    I got given the Aldi one for mothers day. The one where all the ingredients are only from aldi... I like it. I have made a few things from it and not just used aldi ingredients but what i have got in my cupboard...

    At the risk of sounding like my Mum, I'd say my most used cookbook is my Margaret Fulton and then the baby book and then the slow cooker book. Not very adventurous food in my house at the moment, children are on some kind of painful eating phase!

    Speaking of Heston, I did his roast chicken and also his chicken stock. The roast was amazing, so unbelievably juicy. And the stock is yummy, made some delicious meals for DD using it and she loves it. Also made a veggie soup using it and my fussy DS ate a whole bowl of it - two nights in a row! I love trying new recipes.

    Oh - I'm really keen to try his roast chicken. My main problem is all his recipes require SO much time - something I seem to have less of these days! Still, I managed to find 5 hours to dry the pork scratchings , so just need to make the commitment to whichever recipe I next choose
