    I never unpacked my cookbooks the last time we moved but have happily using http://www.yummly.com/ for a couple months now (and love it). There are so many recipes (and pictures) and it's got the quick serving size drop down (no more math!). There's a section that's just weeknight dinner type stuff and then fancier stuff, too.

    And, not that you asked, we had the Italian Ranch Chicken Strips last night and they were excellent.

    I don't use cookbooks per se; I find it easier to use a plethora of food sites. I too look at Yummly, and also foodgawker, because they link to the recipes of the pictures listed! I do wind up getting hungry after lurking though...

    The moosewood cookbook is a great staple. And of course, as mentioned by empirion, there are so many good food sites. saveur.com is great

    For a good, basic cookbook, you can't go wrong with Joy of Cooking. It has a lot of the basics that you can use to really learn how to cook well.

    For baking, I love Rose Levy Berenbaum's books for Bread, Pie & Pastry, and Cake.

    Creatively speaking, the NOMA cookbook is amazing, although any dish in there is almost impossible to make on your own

    I can highly recommend the Martha Stewart Living series of cookbooks. Not least of all because of the delicious font used for them (Archer by HFJ)!

    I second Alton Brown and the suggestion about using websites instead of a traditional cookbook. I gather recipes I enjoy from sites (say, Alton Brown's baked mac and cheese recipe, or his ribs recipe...) and copy them (with any substitutions) into a word processing file I toss in the cloud. That way I can reference it from phone or tablet when I'm cooking! Makes following a recipe super easy :)

    If you use an iPad & iPhone, the photo cookbook series are great. http://www.thephotocookbook.com/

    Think they're available in print as well. Yummy stuff and pretty easy to follow!
