My Collection (or addiction?)
Here are some of the cookbooks that line the shelves of my bookcase. Some I have bought new, some I have picked up in used bookstores, others were gifts. I treasure these books....my first copy of the Joy of Cooking was a gift from my Auntie Ann. It has a lovely inscription in the front, dated and signed, a memory of my first home and her. Others are second hand copies picked up here and there, pages stained, notes written in the sidebars by strangers I will never know that seem to share a love of cooking with me. Many are birthday and Christmas gifts given to me by my family who know there has to be a new book under the tree for me. I look forward to sharing the recipes from within the pages of all these books with you!
