OH ladies, I have such a cookbook "problem"! My collection is over 200 last time I counted, and I'm still adding to it all the time. But I use them, so that's ok, right???

My favorites are the vintage church ladies cookbooks. They are the best!

Too many to count. I also read them like a novel. Who is the hero? Mrs. Smith's meatloaf? Who is the villain? Cinnamon Rolls? I love my books. I feel so sorry for my two daughters when I'm gone. My mother passed away last October and I got most of her cookbooks. It really gives me a thrill to open one of them and there is a big checkmark next to one she tried and liked. She also made little notes in the margins.

None. I move too much so I only have a recipe notebook I write all my favorite tested recipes in. Now that I'm settled, I just use the internet because I don't like owning a lot of stuff. Oops, I lied. My daughter bought me Stanley Tucci's cookbook a few years ago so it's on the bookshelf, but I don't think I've ever made anything from it. She bought it for me because I used to have a crush on him.

Me too! I have slowed it down recently, because the bookshelf is full and the second bookshelf is full, and when I started double-shelving them, I knew I had a problem. I'd like to re-home some of them.

How many cookbooks to I have? I don't know that I can count that high! lol

I just love a cookbook that is full of pictures and stories about the recipes. I find the stories inspire me ... they encourage me ... I do have a soft spot for farmgirl cookbooks, reading about their farm story. I own very little "purely recipe" cookbooks. I want the story, the connection ... the inspiration.

Cheers!

It seems like the internet is taking over the cookbook as well as any other book. I love the feel of a book in my hand as well as the smell of a book. Going through the pages of a cookbook and marking every recipe I want to try is fun. After I try a recipe I will write down if I liked it or not. I have so many cookbooks that I need to thin out my collection a little bit.

Way to many to count and that is after I weeded through them before we moved. I love to read them, like Carole I need the story. I try many of the recipes, a favorite pastime in the cold winter months and make notes in the margins as to what to adjust for next time. I always have cookbooks on my birthday and Christmas gift lists.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.
