|Added note: Always in the basket are the cookbooks from which I am researching recipes at the moment.|
I was asked what books are in the kitchen bookshelves. I figured a little show is easier than tell at the moment. These are the cookbooks in my 30+ years of collecting. I gave my gourmet style cookbooks to the library for their sales long ago...
Oh, that red bookshelf was in my husband's room when he grew up. I think it amusing that it is painted red as that is not a color his family ever decorated with. So it had to be used when it came to be in his bedroom. Perhaps the shelf knew it was coming to me someday? ;)
I'd say three-fourths of these books were purchased used, some were gifts, and only a few did I pay full price.
These pics do not show absolutely every cookbook... but most of them.
