the cookbooks we own

This is the most random post I’ve ever made on this blog. Between my sister (Stealth Eater) and I, there are a lot of cookbooks in our arsenal. Most of the time, our tastes in books do not crossover. Once in a blue moon, they do.

This will be a list of everything we own. I’ll update it whenever appropriate/possible. My sister has more books than I do, or so we think. I have some cookbooks stored in a couple of different places, but the books I’m listing here are on my “current bookshelf.” Maybe I’ll add the other cookbooks at some point.  This list of books is mostly so that we can avoid buying duplicates (which we’ve done!), and start borrowing from each other. (^_^)

Observation #1 – My collection is much more random than my sister’s.  lol!
Observation #2 –  I really should try cooking from ALL of my books.
Observation #3 – I’m too lazy to alphabetize.  That’s ok.  Ctrl+F is perfect for these situations! Now in alphabetical order. But I did it through Excel so titles starting with “A” and “The” count.
Observation #4 – I should probably clean out my cookbooks.  (^_~)

((this list was last updated on 9/27/12 – I know my sister has more cookbooks than that!  She hasn’t given me names of her recent purchases!))
