Blog Tour: Writerspace

Even if you don't love to cook, you probably have a favorite cookbook. At least, before I started cooking in a serious way, I definitely did! It was more of a sentimental choice than anything else--the old version of the Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer. My mother made biscuits, cornbread, pancakes, waffles, and cookies out of that cookbook throughout my childhood. I associate it with being happy and nurtured. Now that I'm nurturing my own family, Joy of Cooking no longer makes my top 5 list--it's outdated and funny, very '50s feeling and full of things I'll never be interested in cooking--but I still go back to it for those same dishes my mother used it for. There's no better recipe in the world for butter roll cookies, and the bacon cornmeal waffles are to die for!

Want to see which cookbooks DO make my top 5 list? Check it out at Writerspace, where I want to hear where you get your favorite recipes. I'm giving away an apron, spatulas, and signed copy of Can't Stand the Heat, so come on down!


Great recommendations ! The Pierre Hermé one shouldn't be too hard to get. By the way, have you seen his "Macarons par Pierre Hermé" book ??? Scrumptious *sigh*

I still use the old one, rather than the update, because it has those hilariously outdated entries - like how to skin a squirrel. Aces!

I'm jealous because I did not think of it first but I'm looking forward to seeing what you did with romance and cooking. 'The joy of Cooking' is number one on my list of must have books. Thanks for sharing.
All the very best,
