Must-Have Cookbooks

See which cookbooks top the wish lists (and give lists!) of our Betty Crocker Kitchens experts this holiday season.


"I'd love to get Plenty: Vibrant Recipes from London's Ottolenghi. I'm a veggie fanatic and always looking for inspiring vegetarian recipes. This book elevates the vegetable to the center of the plate. Plus, the photos are gorgeous." —Jennifer Kalinowski

"Hand Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker from Top Pot doughnut bakery in Seattle is on my wish list. I’ve loved doughnuts since I was a kid and my mom would have them waiting for me as an after-school snack. I'm always on the hunt for artisan doughnut shops wherever I go. Top Pot’s are the best I’ve found, and I can’t wait to make them at home!" —Lori Fox

"I'm giving copies of the Betty Crocker Cookbook (aka Big Red) to two different people. All bias aside, it's one of my all-time favorites!" —Grace Wells

“I've requested A Rich Spot of Earth: Thomas Jefferson’s Revolutionary Garden at Monticello. It's about the history and restoration of the vegetable and plant gardens at Monticello, and the forward is written by Alice Waters. As an avid gardener and cook, this one's a must for me!” —Julie Turnbull

"My sister's getting The Sprouted Kitchen by Sara and Hugh Forte. She’ll love all of the fresh and healthy vegetarian recipes." —Kristen Olson

"I'm giving Cake Pops Holidays by Bakerella to my mother. She'll love it! Especially since it's an autographed copy. (Actually, several of us in the kitchens are giving this book. We were thrilled to meet with Bakerella herself—Angie Dudley—before a recent baking demo and book signing in the Twin Cities.)" —JK
