I don't know if you can have too many cookbooks. I don't think that I can. My two favorites are my BHG Cook Book from like the 70's [I do believe], and my German cookbook that's standing up right next to it. My Mammal McIntosh had given my Dad an exact same BHG Cook Book a long time ago. It was always my favorite when I lived with my parents, and I use to borrow it from Dad before I got mine. For Christmas a couple years ago, Mammal McIntosh found another one and gave it to me. That was probably the best Christmas present that I got that year. My German cook book is one I bought for myself. I got it at a German cafe/market in Indianapolis, Indiana when I lived up there. I love it because they have the old German recipes written in English and with the American measurements. There's also quotes at the bottom of each page in English and German, and there's stories about the author along with German traditions.
Can anyone spot the Julia Child cookbook? Oh, and do you see the cute nesting doll? That's actually a measuring cup set that my dad got me for Christmas this year. It starts at a cup and goes all the way down to a pinch.
So much for the wordless part of Wordless Wednesday lol!
