Quote of the Day


my favorite cookbooks

When summer fades, I like to revamp my cooking.  This is the time of year to read cookbooks and mess up the kitchen.  What are your favorite cookbooks?  Here are some of mine.

Alice Bay Cookbook: A Savory Sampler from Washington's Skagit Valley - our Christmas morning quiche comes from here, as do my shortbread cookies.

The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest (Mollie Katzen's Classic Cooking) 

The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen.  All things hippie are found in this book.
How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cooking 

How to be A Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson. And all things decadent are found in this one.


Joy of Cooking by the Rombauer Becker group.  I thought this was such a boring book when I first got it, but it really is the go-to book when I need to learn something.
Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition - 2006


My favorite cookbook is my Grandmother's 1956 Betty Crocker cookbook. When I got married, my mom passed it down to me, battered cover and floury interior and all. It falls open to all the right pages.

My most favorite cookbook, hands down, is Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Italian Cooking.

Great food and a good read!
