I love cookbooks! I probably bought or was sent in excess of 100 this year and honestly there wasn’t one that I didn’t find redeeming in some big or small way. Having authored three of my own, I know how much time and passion goes into making a great book. Here are 9 of my favorites this year. For some reason…they all touched me in different ways! Still looking for a gift for the cook in your life? You can’t go wrong with any of these choices!
FULL DISCLOSURE, I did four recipes for The Short Stack Cookbook, but it’s not why I picked it. I love the recipes AND ABOVE ALL, I love the design.
