Daughter Kara and I had a ball at the book sale today, and brought home 2 shopping bags of cookbooks! We found several Emeril’s and Creole ones, and even an old Justin Wilson. For some reason, there were lots of chocolate cookbooks, which will be perfect for me to give away for Valentine’s Day! One that I am really excited to read is “The Armchair James Beard,” about his selected writings on food and drink, plus 130 recipes. Lots of Southwest ones, too, plus other surprises for giveaways! Come back every Monday (and sometimes surprise giveaways mid-week) and see what you could win in the drawings!
Back from the Book Sale!

Why I Started This Blog
I love cookbooks. I mean I really love them. I love to read them, treasure them, learn from them, and, of course, cook from them. To me, cookbooks take on a life all of their own. They are history, family, and memories. I have been collecting cookbooks and writing down treasured recipes of family, friends, and neighbors since about age twelve, which means I now own thousands of cookbooks, recipes, and clippings. Now I want to share them with you along with the many other culinary treasures of my cellar." - Debbie Vanni
