With Sweet Dreams and Even Sweeter Days

Feeling Uninspired in the Kitchen? Look no further!

When I first started baking, I didn't really know where to turn to in terms of reliable cookbooks.  I had never baked before in my entire life, and while my house did have a good amount of cookbooks most were from the 1970's.

Over the past year and a half I have started quite my own collection of reliable great cookbooks that I know I can turn to for almost any recipe.  Have a hankering for homemade ice cream? Got it covered.  Freshly baked bread? Coming right up.  Even if what you're craving is a Harry Potter themed confection, I've got a great cookbook on that.  My collection is nowhere near finished and I love nothing more than picking up a new cookbook, but I figured I would share with you the cookbooks I have currently.

Besides food blogs, these are where the majority of my sweets come from.  So if you're in the market for a new cookbook, or even looking to buy your first, take a gander at these.  I have found all to be wonderful in their own ways, and I am happy to share them with you!

Fun fact.  That pink book in the corner is my own personal food journal where I store all my top-secret recipes, which I'm sure I'll get around to sharing one of these days! ;) Not pictured on the side are the food magazine I subscribe to.  Food Network Magazine, Taste of Home, and Cook's Illustrated all have a happy place in my home.

So next time you're in a book store perusing the cookbook aisle, pick up one of these babies and see if they fit the bill for you too!

And of course......

The whole time I was doing this, who was beside me...but my shadow.

("Why must you take pictures of EVERYTHING?")

("Can we at least take pictures in the snow? Pleaassseee?")

Happy Cookbook Hunting!
