3 Cookbooks

Guilty pleasure: reading cookbooks! I love collecting, sorting through, and learning from cookbooks. Although the internet is a terrific place to peruse for recipes and ideas, there is something about the old fashioned, hard cover that I can’t get away from. There are so many cookbooks that I love and use, but currently, here are my three favorite:



1. Simply in Season


Simply in Season is a community cookbook about good food: foods that are fresh, nutritious, tasty, and in rhythm with the seasons. Easy to use, uncomplicated, and delicious!

2. Mother’s Best


Mother’s Bistro & Bar is a popular restaurant from Portland, Oregon, with a cookbook that is just as pleasing. The menu is filled with comfort food to kill for.
