Therefore...I love cookbooks! My sweet daughter would probably tell you I have too many...and my sweet daughter is...well, I would say she's probably correct...
On the other hand, someone once told me that if you get one great recipe from a cookbook, it was worth the purchase. I think I'll agree with that person!
See that San Francisco Chronicle cookbook? Oh, it has THE best coffee cake... Silver Palette has Chicken Marbella, and a slew of other great recipes.
My guy bought be that 'Good to the Grain' last year....love it! See the Chevy's cookbook? It has THE best guacamole...
I just bought that cookbook on top of the pile. It's a vegan cookbook (no, I'm not going vegan)...and actually bought another one...but gave it to that sweet daughter of mine who I'm sure thinks I have too many cookbooks... Lindsey does not have too many...the one I just gave her may be her only ...or maybe she has one or two... Lindsey is a great cook...she loves to try dishes that are unusual...that use unusual ingredients... she's more adventurous than I am in that regard.
Then...there's Cooking Light.. I love that magazine...can't seem to stop subscribing. I got my sweet daughter in law - Erica - hooked on it. She also loves to cook...and her other half is a picky eater, but a great guy!
So I'm grateful for cookbooks...even one with only one great recipe!
