If you get only one cookbook to impress your guests, let it be The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook ($22)! This book is more than chalk full of awesome recipes (The Tarragon Chicken with a white wine reduction will leave you speechless, seriously), tips to save time, the how and whys of cooking, and even suggestions for the best utensils and foods to save time and add flavor in the kitch. For the cost of one meal out, you get endless ideas for meals at home. Yes, please!
