My Cookbook Project


This has been such a fun project, but it's proved to be hard thing to keep updated!!  While I will continue to use my cookbooks, (and add more to my collection), I will no longer be updating this list.  I will keep this up, though, if you'd like to use it for reference!  And I'm always up for suggestions for other cookbooks that you think I need.  
Make sure you are following me at 


for all of my kitchen adventures!

December 31, 2008 UPDATE

The project was a success!! I was barely able to make it through - posting my last recipe on the last day of the December, 2008. What a fun project this was! So fun, in fact, that I will continue to update it with new recipes and cookbooks. Keep coming back to cook with me - or if you have any of the same cookbooks and want to suggest a particular recipe, I'm all ears!!

For 2008, I have made myself a goal to blog about at least one recipe from each of my cookbooks. I don't have as many cookbooks as some people, but I want to try to utilize the ones that I have. Below is a list of the cookbooks I own. I will add to the list as I get new cookbooks. If I have cooked from the cookbook, the link will lead to a list with blog entries from that cookbook.

I'm excited to see if I can make it through them! (Especially since I have been addicted to buying new ones!)
