The first three cookbooks are all from my BookBub emails.
The Ruhlman is a "stumbled upon" find...

 

From the 7-time James Beard Award-winning teacher, James Peterson's "What's a Cook to Do?: An Illustrated Guide to 484 Essential Tools, Tips, Techniques, and Tricks" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
A reference book. The Amazon info page blurb says there are dozen of recipes in this book but it's mostly a reference or "How-to" book.

 

"How to Cook Without a Book, Completely Updated and Revised: Recipes and Techniques Every Cook Should Know by Heart: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
Another cookbook aimed at those who haven't been in a kitchen in a while...but at a little higher level than the cookbook listed above.
Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see a couple vinaigrette recipes.

 

A James Beard Award nominee, Suzanne Dunaway's "No Need to Knead: Handmade Artisan Breads in 90 Minutes" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
Use the "Look Inside" feature (you may have to scroll up) to see the list of recipes.

 

Michael Ruhlman's "The Elements of Cooking: Translating the Chef's Craft for Every" Kindle Edition $1.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
Very few basic recipes included. This is mostly a cooking dictionary with cooking essays, as well.

 

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

 

Interesting side-note: I found another cookbook with "Milk Street" in the cookbook's title. I queried the official Milk Street web site to see if this was a true Milk Street product and was told it wasn't. The cookbook in question is no longer listed on Amazon.:B

I just bought The Honeysuckle Cookbook by Dzung Lewis.  $1.99 on Amazon.ca.

It's also on sale for $1.99US at the Amazon US web site for a limited time (click here). (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

 

Thank you for posting this. I tend not to post "healthy" or "good for you" cookbooks since I classify them as "diet" cookbooks. YMMV.

I sprang for "Buttermilk & Bourbon", since I had to leave my print copy behind for the winter, and for Julia Reed's "Ham Biscuits..." because it sounds like a howlingly fun read. Thanks, Toliver!

From an email this morning, Julia Turshen's Simply Julia: 100 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food $2.99 (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Kindle Edition, 2021.

 

Doesn't strike me as a health-food cookbook, rather, I see that she adds ww flour to the banana chocolate chip cake, along with sour cream and oil (not butter--although there's butter and cream elsewhere). 

 

FYI, the index links don't work on my laptop--the book says it depends on what version of software you run, I'm updated, so ?) but the ToC links work.
