In my Real Simple magazine this month, they ask the question, "What is your favourite cookbook?"
This got me thinking about my cookbook collection that has grown exponentially over the past year. I have always loved books, but I have really grown to love so many cookbooks -- especially ones with beautiful photographs, as I eat with my eyes first.
My recipes often come from the web, whether it's other blogs or the tried and true www.allrecipes.com as I really love reading other cooks' feedback. But there is still nothing like having a book in your hand to flip through, and salivate over. My collection now includes a whopping 24 books which covers a wide range from cooking with booze to using your slow cooker. Among them, my favourites include:
- Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa at Home
- Martha Stewart's Cupcakes
- Easy Breakfast and Brunch
- The Mixer Bible
What is your favourite cookbook? Where does your inspiration come from?
