I LOVE cookbooks! I have over 80 at last peek. I read them like a suspense novel, anxiously awaiting that incredible moment when, I find THE recipe for that cozy little soiree I can't wait to have. Oh, the ooh's, the aah's... You foodies, you know what I mean... the recipe where you are patting yourself on the back, in advance... These are some of my fav's:
I'd have to say that "We Called It Macaroni, An American Heritage of Southern Italian Cooking" by Nancy Verde Barr is my all time favorite. It's not just a recipe book. It is the history of her family, and their passion for everything in the kitchen. She vividly explains what ingredients were used in each family meal, and how they were grown, who had the best garden, and the gossip that surrounded each and every tomato. I think you may end up getting one for yourself...
