In putting together Good Eating's holiday coverage, we leaned on a variety of cookbooks and are sharing a partial list of those books, both newly released and previously published. They might inspire additions to your family's menu.

- "Eating With Uncle Sam: Recipes and Historical Bites From the National Archives," edited by Patty Reinert Mason (Giles, $34.95). Among its 150 recipes are holiday dishes with a presidential pedigree: celery stuffing from President Gerald Ford, Lady Bird Johnson's turkey dressing, and Herbert Hoover's marshmallow sweet potatoes. The book ranges well beyond Thanksgiving and the White House, offering a peek inside our country's history. It would make a thoughtful hostess gift or a source for trivia topics at the table when you've had enough to eat but just aren't ready to leave the warm company of friends and family.
