New Cookbook

Look what I just bought.




Because I really neeeeeeeeed another cookbook.
OK, maybe need is the wrong word.
But isn't it cute?
Does anyone else have this book:  At Our Table by Roxie Kelley, illustrated by Shelly Reeves Smith?  Are you hooked on cookbooks, too?  What are some of your favorites?

A great collection of cook books you have, I too collect cookbooks, and this looks like a great one, and like you I ask myself if I really need another one. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, I was getting excited thinking you had *written* a cookbook. This one does look very nice though! And there is no such thing as too many cookbooks. :)

Sue and Meg, aren't cookbooks fun? If I had more bookshelf space, I'm sure I'd own about a thousand more titles. Meg, I would love to write a cookbook, but I think it would be hard to convince a publisher to publish it without being a TV show host on the Food Network ;)

I have two cookbooks by Roxie and Kelly, but I don't have this one. Lucky you! The recipes are always delicious and the pictures are so beautiful. I once bought a damaged copy at a used book sale and framed some of the pages and hung them in my kitchen.

Oh my, I can see “The Queen of the Castle” is a dangerous place! I have mentally calculated many future calories.

Lemon - Poppyseed Jelly (insert appropriate scrumptious sounds here)looks like it's to die for. I will be one of your most faithful followers—Yum

Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a lovely comment! I'm here following back! I have a bit of a cookbook addiction... Any time I'm at a bookstore, library sale or church bazaar, I come home with some new little gem that I just have to have.

I should go through them all and send some to my daughter. She's just starting to cook more seriously and I'm sure she could use a little help!

Have a great holiday weekend!

What a cute cookbook! I love them, too and find a few vintage books at my thrift store! I can't resist them! My favs would be any of the older ones! (I can't pick just one!)

I wanted to give you a heads up about something I’m working on … I’ve been so thrilled with all the new friends (your one of my newest!), great blogs, and wonderful posts I’ve read over the past 8 months (my shot but rewarding blogging career), that I wanted to show an expression of my luv and admiration. Plus, I thought you might be feeling the same way—wanting to spread the luv! Check out the idea at my blog: http://alife-sizecatholicblog.blogspot.com/p/pay-it-forward.html

I have two of their cookbooks, Goodness Gracious: Recipes for Good Food and Gracious Living and Just a Matter of Thyme. Both are wonderful and so much fun to read.

I bought both used (library sale?). Since then I've seen that they are available used on Amazon at great prices, too.

I just Wish Listed the title you bought. :)

What a GREAT collection of cookbooks, Lynn. I'm especially intrigued by that Times Calendar Cookbook, don't think I've ever seen it.

Who doesn't need another cookbook. I do believe I'd give up my bedroom just for more room, lol...

I must admit though, when I saw that title, I too was hoping it was an introduction to "the Queen's" cookbook.

Thanks for sharing...I too just bought and old new cookbook, Cooking with All Things Trader Joe's Funny thing is, there's no Trader Joe's in Central PA, yet...

Love your cookbook collection. I've stopped asking myself if I need another cookbook because of course I don't.
