It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
I collect cookbooks and love reading the stories behind the recipes in these books. I have many old favourites:(Just a note – all those with a double star, are Canadian cookbook authors!)
The Betty Crocker Cookbook – my first
**More Food That Really Schmecks by Edna Staebler.
**I have a large number of the Company’s Coming series by Jean Pare
**And a number of the cookbooks by sisters Janet and Greta Podleski. Love their LooneySpoons and Crazy Plates especially.
There are some cookbooks that I have acquired more recently that I bought for their difference – they weren’t just recipes but had an added appeal. Here are 5 that caught my eye:
My Kitchen Year by Ruth Reichl. The idea of recipes that saved her life intrigues me and I have decided to follow her to try to reduce my stress. She begins with fall as will I next wee.
Still Life with Menu Cookbook by Mollie Katzen. Not only are there vegetarian recipes but she has included her own original art.
Jan Karon’s Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader. I loved her Mitford series and these recipes delight, along with the stories.
**Yum and Yummer by Greta Podleski. I have tried so many recipes from this gorgeous book – the photos of the prepared food make the mouth water.
**Oh She Glows Every Day by Angela Liddon. This was recommended by my daughter who is vegan. Even tho I am not vegan, there are so many delicious recipes.
