One of the areas in which I'm trying to find balance in 2012 is my eating habits, and so far I have made huge progress. I've greatly improved the ratio of whole foods I eat (especially produce!) to processed stuff, and for the first time in my young-professional life, I am cooking dinner more than ordering takeout. That. Is. Huge. (Don't worry--weekends are still for pizza/nachos. I will never totally give them up. Also doughnuts.)
So I've been dipping into my collection of cookbooks for inspiration and to make sure I don't get sick of making the same meals all the time. My all-time favorite cookbook is this one:
|Hey Mom: Your falling-apart-old|
edition is a collectible now!
More recent finds are:
|How hard can a recipe with only|
four ingredients be?
(Okay, sometimes surprisingly hard.)
|Essential for the TJ's obsessed.|
Which I am.
|Less a to-make-tonight's-dinner book,|
more a drool-over-the-photos book
|If it's not a dessert, I still need the|
basics to avoid a culinary meltdown.
What cookbooks are essential in your pantry? Which do you drool over as cookbook candy?
