Things I Collect

I collect a lot of things.  I collect keychains, Russian lacquer boxes, books, comics, and board games (it is pure Nerdtown in my house).  I also collect cookbooks, and currently have 39 of them.  I am looking to add to that number, making it at least a nice, round 40, and then continuing on until I am featured on the show "Hoarders."  Or "Biggest Loser," whichever my cookbook addiction leads me to first.  Here is where I am stuck.  There are so many beautiful cookbooks, and I am a sucker for food photography, so what cookbooks do you love, cherish, and find yourself going back to time and time again?  For the sake of space, I won't list what I have, but I'd love to hear what you do!


  1. I only have 5 cookbooks, all gifts since we moved into our new house. I think my family is giving me a hint that I need to start cooking. My favorite so far is my Paula Deen one since it's the only one I have actually cooked from. And each recipe pretty much calls for a stick of butter so it's delicious!

  2. Ohh, I made a lot of my Thanksgiving recipes from Paula Deen... lots of butter, but everything was delicious! I don't have any of her books yet, so maybe that's the way to go!
