I have over 1000, and many of them are ones where I know exactly what page the particular favorite recipe is on. I just love to read cookbooks though. Some of my favorites are the ones from the churches I've been in, where "Gramma Snyder" has her oatmeal cookie, or "Mrs. Olsen" has her family Kringle recipe there. Then there are the ethnic cookbooks from the 20's and 30's that were put out by settlement houses that are so much fun to peruse. Three of my children have already put their dibs on certain of the cookbooks on my shelves. I've been able to find copies of some of our favorites at used book stores or on line, though I won't pay $70 for one. The hunt for a garage sale bargain is too hard to resist. But my cookbooks don't even come near to how many music books I have!

Oh my gosh Corey I haven't heard that guy in YEARS!!
I always liked
1 cup a wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine
2 cup a wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.....
and so on!

I have about 25? With the dawn of internet though I haven't bought many. It's much easier to find something online, or find 4 of the same recipe and make your own from them.
Now if you ask how many homemade cookbooks I have, made of printed off recipes.....

He once had his own cooking show on PBS. Wonder if he's still alive. He was a Southern cook from Kentucky, I believe.

I think I'm too young to remember Justin Wilson...

I probably have about 25 cookbooks, not including all the little booklets that come with appliances. Most of them are books I inherited or things my boyfriend had before we moved in together--I've only acquired three or four since I started cooking regularly. My favorite, although mainly for the nostalgia value, is the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that was a wedding gift to my parents from my grandparents. Some pages are missing and in odd places, but I still use some of the recipes.

I loved Justin. Actually he was from Louisiana and prided his Cajun roots. He was also a very funny storyteller and made a couple of records telling tales about duck hunting. He died in 2001.

justin wilson was great! he's the first person that i ever saw fry a turkey.


i just got this year's free cookbook from costco. it's much better than previous years. it's not just "how to reheat our packaged foods" type of book. it has actual recipes using ingredients, not all prepared stuff.

Oh, so sad, we lost another great one!!

I had hoped that he was still alive. He WILL be missed. He and Julia Child were two of the great ones.

I used to wath him cook his authentic Cajiun-style meals every Saturday afternoon.

Yeah, long before celebrity chefs Emeril Lagasse, Bobby Flay, Raechal Ray and Paula Deen and Giada Delurentiis became famous, Justin and Jeff Smith (the Frugal Gourmet) were among the ones to watch.

Yes, I loved Jeff. I refer to his ethnic recipes quite often for authentic fun things to cook.
