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.
