i'm a collector

I didn't really realize I was starting this collection until it was already formed, and now I just can't get enough.

And there were two more hiding in the cupboard that didn't make it into this photo shoot. That makes 23 cookbooks that I own and love. That doesn't count the dozens of recipes that are stashed in that cute little red recipe box. There's enough deliciousness in there to make up at least another cookbook or two. Among my faves are the banana bread recipe from my Better Homes and Garden's cookbook, the chocolate chip cookie recipes from the Bake Sale collection, and pretty much anything from Mollie Katzen's Moosewood Cookbook.

Here are some of the lovelies I plan to acquire next:

OK, so maybe I'll spend more time looking at the cover of this one than the recipes inside .. oh that Jamie Oliver.

I don't have any of Rachael Ray's cookbooks yet, but I love to watch her cooking show. She makes it look so easy!

Husband has his eye on this one. He thinks I should have it, and I agree!

Who doesn't love a good low-fat recipe? 

And this pair knows how to make the most delicious food and make sure that a moment on the hips doesn't equal forever on the hips.

Do you have any cookbooks that you couldn't live without?


  1. Yea I think I have started too I love cooking books :)

  2. "Life's on Fire" by Sandi Richard -- she is the host of "Fixing Dinner" and her recipes are amazing. Super quick and easy, which is all I can handle!
