The "Big Book of Casseroles" features 250 recipes for classic comfort food. $19.95.

The darling desserts in "Sweet Miniatures: The Art of Making Bite-Size Desserts" have been scaled down to allow your guests to sample multiple one-bite treats at your next dinner party or cocktail party. Our favorite recipe from this book is the tiny Chocolate Hedgehogs. $22.95.

"Slow Cooker: The Best Cookbook Ever" offers over 400 recipes designed to save you time and money every week, with easy meals that keep your family eating well at home every day. $24.95.

"Chicken and Egg" is "A Memoir of Suburban Homesteading with 125 Recipes." Janice Cole shares her experiences with urban homesteading and raising chickens in her backyard. $24.95.

"Roots: The Definitive Compendium with More Than 225 Recipes" is a comprehensive guide to using and cooking with root vegetables (jicama, beets, carrots, potatoes, galangal, yams, yucca, burdock, etc). The recipes are grouped into salads, soups, side dishes, main courses, drinks, and desserts. $40.

"Modern Sauces" presents "Sauce Making for Everyone." Food writer Martha Holmberg presents over 100 recipes (with wonderful step-by-step photos!) from bearnaise and hollandaise to marinara, sabayons, coulis and chocolate sauces. $35.

It can be really hard to cook for just two. That's why we're excited about "One Pan, Two Plates." Author Carla Snyder introduces the concept as: "One pan + fresh ingredients = dinner for two!" She helps you minimize prep time and stacks of pans in the sink, and most of her recipes can be made in less than sixty minutes. $24.95.

"Waffles: Sweet, Savory, Simple" provides more than 30 recipes for waffles, plus twelve different toppings for them. Elevate your weekend breakfasts to the next level! $16.95.

For slightly adventurous cooks, we're delighted to present this DIY guide to making crackers and crispy snacks at home. There are also recipes for tasty dips to enjoy with them. $19.95.

"Slice & Bake Cookies: Fast Recipes from Your Refrigerator or Freezer" is by former pastry chef Elinor Klivans. We love the idea of serving warm fresh-from-the-oven cookies with just a few minutes' notice, after pulling them from our freezers. Besides the recipes, the book offers tips on decorating, serving, storing, and shipping the cookies to friends and relatives. $18.95.

Learn to make your own candy bars at home with "Hand-Crafted Candy Bars: From-Scratch, All-Natural, Gloriously Grown-Up Confections." The book begins with the basics of candy making, then moves on to help you create elegant desserts you could serve proudly at your next cocktail party. $24.95.

"The Little Paris Kitchen" presents 120 enticing recipes for simple, classic, and fresh French dishes. Author Rachel Khoo moved to Paris years ago to study the art of patisserie. We love the gorgeous photos! $35.
