October is Cookbook Month

October is a big month for new cookbook releases. I've had many cookbooks on my wish list for a while now. And, since I've waited patiently for months, I've allowed myself to finally hit the "order" button.

On the Wish List:

Here are the books I've ordered and am eagerly awaiting to arrive on my doorstep in the near future:
Cake Ladies: Celebrating a Southern Tradition   Where Women Cook: Celebrate!: Extraordinary Women & Their Signature Recipes
Sugar, Sugar: Every Recipe Has a Story

Currently on the Nightstand:

The latest books on my nightstand that are providing me with some delightful evening reading are Country Living's The Mom's Guide to Running a Home Business by Michelle Lee Ribiero and Southern Living Heirloom Recipe Book from the editors of Southern Living.

Country Living The Mom's Guide to Running a Business: Strategies for Work Success and Family Balance  Southern Living Heirloom Recipe Cookbook: The Food We Love From The Times We Treasure

October is the perfect month to cuddle up on the couch with a warm throw and a good cookbook. So, tell me what you're reading these days or what you're looking forward to reading. I would love to discover some new cookbooks with you.


  1. Oh I love cookbooks and good for you...ordering some that you just know you will love!!!! smile... I just bought a new cookbook, but it was from church...I had several recipes in it and have been having fun 'reading'

  2. I also enjoy cookbooks very much. Even if I don't actually cook from them, the stories and photographs really intrigue me.

  3. You should see my collection--over a 1,000 and counting! Yes, I love cookbooks!

  4. @Gert - I have some recipes in my sons' school cookbooks. They love seeing their names in the book. It's fun to look through it. @Susan - I don't know where I would keep 1000 cookbooks. It's all I can do to keep up with the ones I have now. But, it must be wonderful to have so many - you're never bored!

  5. I love cookbooks too! I have found with the internet, I often skip the cookbook and go straight to the computer, but there is nothing as great as leafing through a cookbook, especially an old one, and dreaming of the menu! I love Jr. League Cookbooks and have a nice collection of them.


I love reading and responding to your comments. While links to your food/family-related blogs are welcome, no solicitation is allowed. Thank you for your understanding.
