Well, my mom always goes by this Pillsbury cookbook from 1979. She's had it since I was younger. It's A+, pretty sure she received (or took) it from my grndmother. We rarely go online for recipes.
Growing up, my mom had this set called Woman's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery, and it was a 12 volume set. I loved it because you really could look up any ingredient and it would have a description, origin, and typical uses - it's where I learned about quince! I was so excited a few years ago when, for Christmas, my parents gave me and my 2 sisters our own set. They has scoured flea markets until they had 3 complete sets. I don't cook from it much anymore as the recipes tend to be that 'fat-heavy' type from the past, but I do peruse it now and then!
I love that!! :D I know even from the Pillsbury one, my mom will modify or substitute ingredients.
