My second favorite kind of cookbook are Junior League cookbooks. I have started collecting those, as well, from different Junior Leagues all over the U.S. The recipes in these cookbooks are more modern versions of classics & loaded with tips and recipes on entertaining!
Last, are the new type of "celebrity" cookbooks. Any actor/celeb chef/hip restaurant owner can write a best selling cookbook these days, but there are a few that really outshine the others. I love the Magnolia Bakery cookbooks, Paula Deen's, Thomas Keller's, Ina Garten, Pioneer Woman, etc. Here are a few I am wanting to add to my collection from this category....
This one from Miette Bakery in San Francisco... how cute!
This one looks wonderful... I love making cookies, especially during the holidays!
I cannot wait to get this one!! She just opened an ice cream shop in Nashville, and I am dying to go!
I've heard nothing but GREAT things about Jenni's ice cream!
I wouldn't have bought this one, but I read about her new cookbook in the May issue of SELF magazine article recently. That article totally sold me on the cookbook, especially when I saw 4 of the recipes within the book. They look yummy - pretty healthy and comforting!
Loaded with healthy - yet tasty - recipes. I need more of this type of cookbook in my collection!
See it here.
Heard this one was so good! And very southern, which I love ;)
She has another cookbook, too, here.
My mom told me about this one, and just by reading about it on Amazon, I can tell it's written in true Southern fashion! Must get!
All the Momofuku cookbooks are supposed to be great! This one looks the best to me.
I've been to both the Momofuku places and really liked them!
I read about this one a lot. There are supposed to be great pizza recipes in this one!
Wanted to share a little something with you guys... Both of the "Simply" cookbooks by Jennifer Chandler are WONDERFUL! The two cookbooks are "Simply Suppers" and "Simply Salads." I adore the Suppers one, and every single thing I've made has been amazing - and you guessed it, simple! :) I cook from that one almost weekly. Find them here and here.
What are YOUR favorite go-to cookbooks? I'd love to know, so I can share with my mom too!
