Are you feeling as frantic as I am? I haven't finished my Christmas shopping and it's December 23rd. My solution: cookbooks! Here are 10 of my favorites from this past year.
1. First, some shameless self-promotion: You've got to get our Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen ring-binder cookbook. It's an amazing resource with all the recipes you could want. The best part is that we really do triple-test our recipes to ensure that they'll always work at home. Ever try a recipe from online searching only to have it not come out well? That won't happen with our book or any of our triple-tested recipes.

2. Just a little more self-promotion: I spent years working with chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to put together Home Cooking with Jean-Georges. Everyone always asks me if a regular home cook can actually make the recipes in here and the answer is a resounding yes! They're not necessarily quick, but they're totally doable and really, really delicious.
