Though it's not technically a book, these three sites are my first resource for amazing recipes.

http://www.gumbopages.com/recipe-page.html
The Bananas Foster Bread Pudding is incredible, as are all the desserts I have tried.

http://papadutch.home.comcast.net/~papadutch/dutch-oven-recipes.htm
The site has been an invaluable resource, especially for on Scout campouts. The Dutch oven sweet chilli and fiesta chicken are particular favorites.

http://www.thespicehouse.com/recipes/
One of my favorite recipe sites and one of my favorite stores. THeir flagship store is a few blocks from my house, so I pop by frequently. The recipe for Irish Soda Bread and Chicken with Sichuan Peppercorns are two very good ones I have made more than once.

As for actual bound cookbooks, a favorite would be Wilbert Jones's "Smothered Southern Foods"
http://www.amazon.com/Smothered-S...Foods-Wilbert-Jones/dp/0806527463
In particular I like the recipe he uses for barbecue sauce as it has a pleasant earthy herbal flavor with a balsamic vinegar base.

A more recent discovery, specialized though it is, would be Linda Collister's "Brownie Bliss".
http://www.amazon.com/Brownie-Bli...-Blondies-Chocolate/dp/1849750297
I love this book for the sheer variety it shows within the subject. There's everything from basics such as fudge brownies, or nutty brownies to more exotic varieties including rum brownies and brownie varieties with cream and crystalized ginger.

Finally, a new recipe I have become enamored with is "Simply Delicious - The Complete Guide to Successful Entertaining"
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/086283435X/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00
The contents are a bit of a mixed bag as far as complexity. There are some really basic ones that I didn't find very interesting, but there are others which show true promise. What impressed me was the eccentricity of it's selections. For instance, I was perusing the dessert section and found a transcribed recipe from a victorian young girl's guide for hydropathic pudding. I also found the book's tomato chutney recipe, and recipe for beef in cider to be delightful: mellow but delightful.

Not that I'm a veggie, but Sarah Brown's Vegetarian Kitchen has provided me with some great recipes. It was the book that accompanied a Beeb TV series back in the Eighties I think.

This one: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q...=__DfbKFOY6o2O-X4LJoi3s0MQRurg%3D

My go-to book though is Delia's Complete Illustrated Cookery Course.

I have loads of cookery books collected over the years. The Bero one is missing... can't think where that's gone  

But if the house caught fire, the one I'd grab is Mrs Beeton.

The Scottish Women's Rural Institute Cookery Book.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Scottish...-Institutes-Cookery/dp/B001Y51W20

I've been using mine near as long as I've been married. It's simply the cook book

We cleared out a great Aunt's house about ten years ago and Son1 latched onto an even earlier (by about thirty years) copy, and he's still using it.

Basic, uncomplicated, tasty, wholesome food. Unpretentious but good food.
From dumpling to wedding cake, from haggis to roast venison, from neeps to rasps.
It's a Scottish housewife's cookery book really.
