Bittman's "How to cook everything" & "How to cook everything vegetarian" - opinions? favorite recipes?

linguafood | Mar 1, 2011 08:48 AM

So I was browsing B&N yesterday, and the Bittman book was in the bargain section for $20... just couldn't resist.

I like/d his minimalist column, and I've flipped through a few pages & like his writing style and approach. I like that he gives 5-10+ variations on the simplest sauces, for example.

My problem is that -- whenever I buy cookbooks, I hardly ever look at them again, b/c I almost never cook with actual recipes. I decide what I want to make for dinner, and I make it.

Are there recipes you were particularly fond of?

Tips on how to remember 'that book there on the shelf' for more than inspiration?
