Favorite Cookbooks

Hello there!  How’s your day going?  It should be going good because it’s Wednesday and more than likely a short week for you!  It is for me as well!

I’ve been working on a new dessert to share with you guys.  Just a bit more editing and you will see it (hopefully in the next day or so.)  In the meantime, check out some of these cookbooks that I get my inspiration from.

From Top:

The Flying Biscuit Cookbook <– A gift from a friend. Down home southern cooking.  This is an actual real-life restaurant in Atlanta. It’s on my list to visit.

Pillsbury Baking <– A gift from my husband.  My first actual cookbook.  This is great for beginners!  It has quick recipes and also more in-depth recipes.

Baked: New Frontiers in Baking <– A wedding gift. This is a bakery in Brooklyn that I also have yet to go to.  I know, I’m horrible.  They have such beautiful pics!

The Modern Baker <–For the more experienced baker but written well enough that even a learning baker can understand what’s going on.

The Essential Baking Cookbook- Bay Books <–couldn’t find a website for this one.  It has a little bit of everything and even tells you the skill level of each recipe.  There are troubleshooting questions in the beginning.  The book is British so some of the ingredients may be difficult to find in a standard grocery store.

I love collecting cookbooks and I have so many more that I want.  There’s just something about the photos and having the paper page to turn that makes me so happy.  Not to mention, I always worry about spilling something on my laptop when I have it in the kitchen.

What cookbooks do you own and love?

Okie Dokie, I’m off to finish that blog post I was telling you about!  Happy Reading!

    Aha! You read my mind with this one!!! I only have the old Betty Crocker cookbook, which is great, but I’d like some newer and more innovative cookbooks. I’ll have to check some of those out!

    I have the old Betty Crocker cookbook, too…but I never use it. The print is so small and there aren’t very many quick recipes that I’ve found in it.

    My favorite cookbook is actually one that was put together at my Mother-In-Law’s church! It’s basically a bunch of old time mixed w/ some newer recipes, and most of them are pretty simple. All that I’ve tried were delicious!! Sometimes, “homemade” cookbooks are the BEST! :)
