Cookbooks! Cookbooks! Cookbook! Yes, I have an affinity for cookbooks. I have quite a selection too! Been collecting them for about 40 plus years I guess. I have inherited loved ones cookbooks, I have purchased vintage charmers at my favorite thrift shops. In the beginning years of my collection I belonged to a cookbook book club where you purchased several to start at a very low price and then once a month you purchased an additional one till your commitment was complete. That was fun.
Finding a place to store all these is always a challenge - a very fun challenge though.
My favorite cookbooks tend to be those compiled by clubs or church women who include all their tried and true recipes. These are the best - who would want to put a yucky recipe in a book with their name attached? I have quite a few recipes actually published in cookbooks like this too.
Funny thing about all my cookbooks? I really don't use them a lot when I am looking for a recipe. More often than not I go to my computer and google the desired culinary creation. The cookbooks are more for reading like a novel almost - they encourage my homekeeping and cheer me on.
How about you? Have a favorite cookbook you can't live without? Would love to hear about it in the comment box.
