A Library Love Story

I'm positively giddy about next week!

Rosie, a local librarian here in town, recommended doing a feature post on cookbooks and it has blossomed into an all-out cookbook-crushing-music-loving week-long library love-fest. I heart you, Rosie. 

Invite your bloggy friends and neighbors and join us here all week as we chat about swoonie chefs and cheffetts and how the library adds beauty in our kitchens and homes and beyond. We'll pair the cookbooks with great music from the library as well - and all of a sudden, you have a party. Without a budget. Feel free to grab the button above and tell everyone you know.

There will be a few giveaways to tempt you to spend quality time in the kitchen and make it a family affair. I need this inspiration more than anyone. My husband is nodding his head.

Please leave your favorite cookbook titles in the comments and I'll do my best to add your recommendations.

The library should be celebrated - their borrowed beauty allows us to utilize all five senses and warmly encourages us to share that love with others. 

See you back here bright and early on Sunday!

xoxo Michele

You were right-- I am excited to see what you will share this week. One of my most popular posts is the one where I talk about my mother-in-law and Julia Child. You might like it...

P.S. I've got another Alcott groupie ready to do the Louisa Challenge. Are you reading your biography yet?

I found Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything a great reference guide. I think it is a great gift for a bride. Other than that I love anything from Julia Child.

I think Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything is a great resource to have on hand. Also, anything by Julia Child, of course.

Favorite, favorite, have a crush on this woman, love her to death: the famous Barefoot Contessa: Ina Garten. I have every cookbook she has ever written, I've made close to every recipe she has and each time it turns out so great tasting. Here recipes bring out the natural great taste of the food itself. "Now, how easy is that?" - quote from Ina.

I love Nigella Lawson's cookbooks for the pretty picture factor, but the one I find myself turning to time and again is The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook. Hands down the best cookbook I've ever used, because every recipe turns out perfectly if you follow it carefully.

But that CakeSpy book I reviewed last month is pretty darn delicious too.

And I like Alton Brown's cookbooks in a nerdy way.

So many cookbooks, so little time!
