When I visited Natashya's blog Living in the Kitchen with Puppies today she had a challenge for other food bloggers....would they care to show their shelves of cookbooks to other bloggers so we can all show each what cookbooks we have in our collections. I definitely thought this would be fun. I really don't have that many, but the ones I do have are ones I really treasure. I buy some cookbooks at yard sales and some (if I really want it) I pay full price for at the book store. My most treasured ones are about 30 years old and are the Doubleday Cookbook, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. I have had them probably 30 years ( older than a lot of people reading this!) and they have NEVER failed me. I turn to them time and time again. If there is an ingredient I'm not familiar with, they will have it in there - what it is and what it's used for. Every recipe is a winner and I still use their recipe for sugar cookies. Can't find a better one ever. I have some newer ones also, like Dorie Greenspan's Baking from my Home to Yours. Another great book. So now you all have seen my collection!!!!! I'd love to see yours!!
