Where do I go for help? I was doing so good and getting rid of some of my cookbooks that I don't use any more. I was so proud of myself. Well, I think I have had a relapse. I looked in the cupboard today and, lo and behold, somehow it is starting to fill up again.
The newest addition (somehow I ended up in Borders today). I don't know how I got there. But of course I couldn't leave without a (you know what). It is called "Duncan Hines, Cake Mix Magic". 125 Easy Desserts...Good As Homemade.
This time I think I will leave it up to my children to get rid of them when I am gone. I give up.

I have about 50 and I read them like novels. They inspire me.

I guess I am the odd one here, the "Less is more" approach works perfectly for me. These are ALL the books I have in order of importance:
a) Larousse Gastronomique
b) Auguste Escoffier. Cookbook & Guide to the fine art of Cookery
c) Henri Pellaprat. The Great Book of French Cuisine
d) Julia Child. Mastering the Art of French Cooking
e) Dona Benta. Comer Bem -Brazilian Cooking Encyclopedia-
If I have to pick one, the Larousse is the one without a doubt.
Note that I have them for many years and still haven't been able to produce all recipes listed on them.

Perhaps I should look for a nice Chinese food book, I really like Chinese cuisine but haven't cook much of it.

Count me in as a couple of hundred, and that doesn't include the big thick cook books that I continually buy from newsagents and bookshops, plus all the ones I get off the net and store, WOW, I do have too many, does anyone use all the books and cook a lot out of them, do we really need that many, I must admit, I am ADDICTED to cookbooks, I love them, I am afraid that if I dont buy them then I will miss out on a new recipie that I dont have, is any one else like me, or do I need HELP.??

  • Fannie Farmer’s
  • LL Bean Game & Fish
  • Reinhart’s Bread Bakers Apprentice

i have about 15 or so. a very weird collection, mostly from gifts that were supposed to mean or be a part of something.

i have:
dom delouise's "eat this; it'll make you feel better", #'s 1 and 2.
the sopranos cookbook.
the saddle brook, n.j. fire dept. ladies auxilliary cookbook.
"emeril's t.v. dinners".
rachel ray's "30 minute meals 2".
a basic irish cookbook, and a basic thai cookbook (i forgot the names).
"fanny farmer", circa 1970.
"roasting" - wms. sonoma.
"lidia's family table".

and a few more that escape my memory.

I have far far to many to count!

I think that my current fav is "The Everyday Vegan" by Dreena Burton. Every darn recipe out of that one has been great!
