Cookbooks – Summer 2016

Everything about my biffle‘s house is blog worthy. It is like walking into a perfectly curated store that carries only the best of the best. Literally, every nook and cranny could be photographed and written about as her taste and style is impeccable (I will take one of each, please). She is also a phenomenal cook who meal plans for her family with healthy, simple, and varied recipes. Here are her top cookbooks of Summer 2016. And perhaps if we have the same cookbooks, then we have the same dinners?

Similar to Kitchen Matrix, but fewer recipes and ingredients that makes it a tad bit easier to follow.


I just put all these cookbooks into my Amazon cart so I can have them when I return to NYC.  Can’t wait!

  1. I am absolutely obsessed with Chrissy Teigen! Need to get her cookbook. But some of these other cookbooks look great too. I am still learning how to cook and need a book great for beginners. Definitely going to try out “Dinner Made Simple” 🙂

  2. Wow! All great cookbook recommendations. I need to start using cookbooks more often. I make recipes from Pinterest a lot. Forgot how fun it is to use a cookbook. Thanks for your recommendations!
