My husband has told me that I should keep all of my cookbooks. That sounds great but what if they are just collecting dust on the shelves? So I’m giving myself until 2012 to make one recipe from each of my cookbooks. Whichever ones I don’t get around to will have to be given away. Too bad, so sad. Most of the time I cook without a recipe or I look them up on the internet anyways.
The first cookbook I will save is Joy of Cooking. It’s a must have for all households. Tonight I made the Apple Crisp but replaced the apples with blueberries. My mom taught me to always double your topping on crumbles or crisps so that’s what I did. Yum yum. I made a lasagna tonight too. Lunches are going to be delicious for the next few days!
Of course I am tempted by pictures of older versions of the cookbook. I’d love an original copy of the Joy of Cooking. It would be fun reading the differences in recipes from then until now.
One thing I know for sure is that I would have fired the illustrator!
What is your favorite cookbook?
