I'll Sow YouMine...


Natashya from Living in the Kitchen with Puppies extended an open invitation to everyone who would like to share their collection. Now Natashya has quite a collection of cookbooks like I've never seen before.

This is my small collection. I am not complaining, or not I do not want anymore cookbooks. My collection has quite enough to keep me entertained for a while. Besides, where in the world could I find a better collection of tried and true recipes than right here with my blogosphere friends on their blogs?

I have tried and posted many of your recipes and hope that you know I do it out of admiration and in accordance drool factor.

I usually do not post on the weekends, but in the spirit of the Christmas Season, I have some Christmas videos I hope you have time to stop by and view.

I'm hoping to make my Raspberry Truffles Sunday and if I do I'll post them Monday.

Have an wonderful weekend and enjoy the Reason for the Season!

I would be so embarrased to show my cook book colection. Shame on me. (I'll think about it) I can say that I have gotten probably half of them as gifts and I did WIN one!! I had a great time last night reading my new cookbook that I won from you. I'm half way through it and have ear marked a half a dozen pages to try out soon. You were right about them being quick and easy. That's me quick and easy! (maybe that's not such a good thing, I mean in the kitchen I'm all about quick and easy)

You have a great weekend too. Merry Christmas!

Cajun cuisine is one that I don't really know much about at all.
The nice thing about a smaller collection is that they get the attention they deserve! Like a mother with too many kids, I am always feeling guilty for my benign neglect! Not that it stops me from collecting though..... oh well, we all have our vices. :)
I look forward to learning more about your regional cuisines from you.

I'm with you Katherine, many of my recipes I find on the net on other food blogs. I do use my cookbooks but check out other blogs as well adn try their recipes. It's really lots of fun!! Have a great weekend. Looking forward to the raspberry dessert!

I have 3 or 4 feet of cookbooks, some of which are really useless. Maybe I'll follow your example....if I get my kitchen back under control! Have a great weekend.

My collection is about the same size as yours. But since I'm living with my parents right now I have access to my Mom's huge collection which is really nice. I like looking at them and getting ideas. It's hard for me to follow a recipe as is, I always want to change it to suit my own taste. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely weekend!!

I love cookbooks. My mother just sent me boxes of her old books. I am so excited! The cajun cookbook would be great to read.

I too love cookbooks but very rarely use them. I'm a fly by the seat of your pants cook. I rarely make anything the same way twice.

I do however love reading cookbooks and dreaming of being Paula or Martha or Rachel...

My favorite cookbooks are not the ones with large, glossy photos, but instead those published by church & civic groups, compilied by real women, rather than in a test kitchen...My collection of those cookbooks is shrinking, as my daughter keeps "borrowing" them from me and they never seem to find their way home. *smile

We don't have too many cookbooks, but I too love finding recipes on the blogpsphere!

You know, I honestly don't have any of those cookbooks. Its interesting because usually I overlap with at least one or two...which is your favorite?
