In a pickle? One of these may help:
“How to Cook Everything” by Mark Bittman (cookbook) – Literally, how to cook everything. I use it often for new ideas and the occasional refresher.
Saveur (magazine) – Very good writing, photos and recipes; there’s an emphasis on foreign foods and destinations.
Cook’s Illustrated (magazine) – Dedicated to creating the perfect recipe; it’s very technical, but straightforward. Also, product reviews.
