Any new cookbooks?

Has anyone gotten any new cookbooks lately? My latest one is called "Church Socials" by Barbara Greenman. There are 782 recipes in it. The book is filled with good down home comfort food recipes. When I get a new cookbook I usually put a post note on the page of recipes I want to make. Well, with this book I started to mark almost every page.

My dad gave me a local (Fresno, CA, where he lives) fundraiser cookbook for Christmas; I put a ton of Post-its in there, too And we saw Bobby Flay do a cooking demo recently, and I bought his Mesa Grill cookbook. I've made several recipes from it - they've all been good, although I added more heat to several

My dad is working part-time at his library, just putting away books.
He is a book freak, so any time they are giving away books he grabs 'em.
Usually I get the cookbooks unless he decides it's too good to give away right away (cuz he figures I'll have them when he's gone soon enough anyway, morbid ain't he?!)
Anyway I got "the potato book" last week. Pretty neat.

Hi, my name is Katie and I'm a cookbookaholic.....

I've been trying to be good and have restrained myself from buying any new cookbooks since Christmastime, but my "want" list is loooooooooong. I feel myself weakening. Oh no!

I need a new cookbook! Anyone want to recommend their favorite Italian one? I have a few on the subject, but only one is well-used (it's from a lady who had a cooking show back in the 70s called "Mama D"); the rest have too much seafood (ick).

LOL - Katie you got Step 1 down ... but I think you might be mixed up on Step 10:

Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

Not really sure that means taking an inventory of your cookbook collection and ordering one that you don't have that you thought you did.

You mean there are more steps?!!

Oh, Michael, that has "kinda" happened to me. One year, for Christmas, Buck wanted to get me a German cookbook. He didn't check with me or, I guess, didn't scan our cookbook shelves. I know all my cookbooks by size/shape/color. (I'm weird that way.) As a result he proudly gave me a cookbook I'd had for about 10 years. Oops!

I forgot to mention, DH gave me The Best International Recipe from America's Test Kitchen, the Cooks Illustrated people. I love that book

I have a cookbook collection. I started it a couple years ago. I have about 70 now. And I'm just getting started! I actually have $20 that was given to me and when they asked what i'm gonna do with it, I said I'm definitely buying a cookbook. So, now it's a HUGE eeny meeny miny moe on which one I'll get. I want them all! I haven't bought one lately, but I will soon!
