On Monday, I asked what your essential cookbooks
are and readers jumped in with their favorites here on the blog and on MNN”s Facebook page
. Many of these cookbooks I’ve never heard of before, but I’m thankful for the suggestions. Next time I hit one of my beloved library book sales
, I’ll have to have this list with me to see if I can grab a few of these gems. Thanks for all the great suggestions.
Sarah likes Rose Elliot's “Complete Vegetarian Cookbook
” because it’s “straightforward, easily adaptable recipes that bring a smile to everyone's face.”
Cynthia still uses the 1970’s “Wings of Life
” by Julie Jordan — her first vegetarian cookbook — all the time.
Audrey was given “The Gourmet Cookbook
” edited by Ruth Reichl and considers it her bible in the kitchen.
Brenda had her essential cookbook “Chipits” from the 1950’s stolen and hasn’t been able to find another copy.
Valerie can’t live without the classic “Joy of Cooking
” by Irma S. Rombauer.
Bg uses her grandmother’s cookbook, which I assume is a collection of recipes her grandmother gathered.
Vanessa, also uses a collection of recipes, but ones that she has collected herself and found her family likes.
