A while back, a Joy and Sunshine reader (thank you SO much ) asked for some recommendations to help expand her cookbook library. My response post got lost in cyberspace, thanks to a blog hacking meanie, but no worries! Here we go:
For uncomplicated recipes and great tips:
- Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That?
For step-by-step instructions with tons of illustrations (Can’t stand cookbooks without pictures…don’t just tell me, SHOW me!):
For recipes featuring simple, fresh, GOOD food:
- Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics
- Recipes by Susan Spungen (check out the Rosemary Roasted Potatoes!)
For bringing the not-necessarily-healthy YUM:
While I really like the cookbooks mentioned above, the one I reach for most is the DIY one I threw together from magazine clippings and random recipes I picked up. Just paste onto cardstock, slide pages into page protectors, slap them into a binder, and voila: you did that!
Thanks for the question, Ms. S! Hope this helps
