Book Love

My dear neighbor and friend was doing some housecleaning and asked if I would like to look over her cookbooks.  Of course I said yes howdy!  I love cookbooks and I probably have around 100 plus cookbooks in my home.  I love to get inspiration from the recipes, plus it is a good read.  Anyway, she was going through her late husbands books and wanted them to go to a good home.  I was thrilled and honored that she gave them to me.  What awesome books they are!  Not only that, but a lot of them are signed by the authors.  Her late husband ran a speciality cook store and had meet these chefs/authors.  He was good friends with Jacques Pepin and knew Julia Child.  How cool is that!  I will always treasure the books.  Now what to make first?

The cookbooks are wonderful! I, too, have far too many. But, they are so difficult to part with. I still have a sweet little book called Dinner For Two by Betty Crocker published in 1958. It brings back so many memories from when I was a new wife and thoroughly enjoying all the "domestic arts" as I still do to this day. Have a Great Day and thanks for sharing.
