My Cookbook Collection

Standard

One of the things that I read as often as the Bible are cookbooks.  Here is a sampling of a few of them.  (I also have a collection of Bibles.)  I have many more cookbooks that won’t fit on these shelves so I need to go to the basement for them.

I seem to add to my collection quite often.  I’m such a sucker for a new cookbook, or a vintage cookbook, or a cookbook that tells a story.  I love them all and try to cook something out of each one of them.

The latest one is The Pioneer Woman’s new cookbook.  Last wednesday night my daughter and I went to her book signing in Naperville.

We had numbers 220 and 221 out of 650.  We happened to get out of Anderson’s Bookstore at 9:00 P.M. with a signed book, but I feel so sorry for the people that had the higher numbers.  I heard they were still there at midnight.

But as you can see, Ree Drummond is a very popular and loved TV chef on the Food Network.  She is just as nice in person as she seems on her show.

My husband and I had such a fun day with our daughter.  We did some shopping and had dinner before going to the book signing.  And spent a lot of time in Starbuck’s waiting for our number to be called.  The waiting wasn’t boring though, we met so many nice people and talked to them the whole time.
