My Top Ten Cookbooks

October 23, 2009


1.  Frank Stitt’s Southern Table.  A world renowned chef from Birmingham, Alabama, I read his cookbook like it was a novel.

2.  Baking With Julia.  A must for anyone who loves to bake.

3.  Easy Weeknight Favorites by Southern Living.  Do I need to say more?

4.  Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum.   One of these days I am going to perfect my cake baking skills, and this will be the book I use.

5.  Rachael Ray’s 30 Minute Meals.  Needs no  explanation, okay I will give you one anyway.  I have never tried one of her recipes that I didn’t like.

6 & 7.  Food For Thought and Magic by the Junior League of Birmingham, AL.   These girls know how to cook.

8.  The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook–The New Classics.  Martha is a good teacher.

9.  Feast of Our Lady of Victory.  A local cookbook put together as a fundraiser by a neighbor.

10.  Betty Crocker’s Cookbook.  A good basic that I have had since I was 16.  I think it was probably my first ever cookbook.
