2018 Cookbook Gift Guide

2018 Cookbook Gift Guide

Thanksgiving Tabletop

Cookbooks are a passion of mine and I have been collecting them for many years! I probably have over 200 cookbooks and I just keep buying them. I can’t resist the beautiful pictures and new recipes that each one holds. I also love to open an old cookbook and find stained pages from years past. When my daughters were little, I started putting their artwork inside the pages of my cookbooks and sometimes I still find a surprise when I open an old one! When I do, I smile and cry a little as I remember them as little girls!

Here is a list of some of my favorite cookbooks…some I own and some I would love to own!
