As I plan my meals, one of my go-to spots is the Our Best Bites website. It's run by Kate and Sara, and I've been following their blog for several years now. I first ran into Kate and Sara on a forum, and have really enjoyed watching their blog progress. So, it was a natural progression to buy their cookbook as soon as it came out in February.

Let me tell you how much I love this cookbook. (Oh, and don't worry about the whole "mormon moms" thing. We eat food just like you do.)
Each recipe in the book has a beautiful full-color photograph to go with it. I am a very visual cook, so I like to see what the end result is supposed to look like before I begin.
This book is chock full of my favorite recipes from the blog, as well as many new ones that are seriously all fail-proof.
And, it comes with a handy bookmark that fits into the spirals and has some helpful measurements on it.
All the recipes contain ingredients that are easily found in grocery stores. As I'm flipping through the cookbook I can almost always find things that I've already got in my pantry.
Another really awesome feature is the roll-over ingredients in the back that have a variety of recipes that you can use with some of the more obscure or perishable ingredients.
This is by far the most used cookbook in my house. This will also be what I'm giving people for Christmas, birthdays, weddings, etc. Everyone needs this cookbook.
And a slice of this cake. Which I am making right now.
