I love cookbooks. Young or old, I love them all. During yard sale season, I’m looking in boxes, book shelves and other places, looking for all the old cookbooks that people are selling. I even look in antique shops for their old cookbooks. The newer one at Wal Mart, go into my Amazon wish list and I wait at least a month or more before buying it. Some of these are in my wish list, and some I have just discovered. To me, cookbooks are the best gift giving present you can give someone. Enjoy looking at all thses cookbooks. This will problably be an ever evoling list.
I like to cook but only simple stuff. I am no gourmet, no flashy “lay oregano on top to give it more flair” type. I am a very picky eater so I tend to tweak recipes to suit me. #3 sister, Christine, tends to do most of the cooking now. I used to do most of the cooking but gradually Christine has taken over that job and I let her.
I love going to garage sales and finding old cookbooks for only a dollar. but with this corona virus thang going on, not a lot of folks are putting on garage sales. I like them in the 50’s-60’s but if you can find them older, its a treasure.
I buy new ones too because I know that Christine bought an instapot and loves the thing. Microwave meals are interesting. I get excited for the little spiral notebook kinds, you know the ones that churches put out to fund raise. I have a cousin who loves anything pioneer woman. The really big ones I can usually find at antique stores. You wouldn’t believe a 14 year old nerd/heathen would go to an antique store with us but he will. Eagerly, in fact. He loves the copper toys while we look at everything. We have learned over the years to look in the back of the store for the books. Plain american food is what I like. But I do like to buy others, especially chinese since they all love chinese dishes.
I’m not into garnishing my food since 5 seconds after you put food in front of their faces, they start shoveling it in. We recently moved #2 sister in, various health problems, plus Renee, (my niece,who lives with boyfriend but comes over most days) and her 3 kids, that makes 8 or so people in the house that eat alot. Yep, I am the kind of diabetic that has to eat several times a day plus a big meal for supper. I snack all thru the day to keep the sugar high enough. A 20 oz Pepsi usually takes me 2 days to finish. I try to limit my caffeine since it tends to make me sleepy. Yep, I have a small allergy to caffeine, I can’t even have coffee. I love plain ol water, although I will at times at flavor packets to it.
My dream library would be filled with cookbooks of all kinds. I still go thru the book sections at the local Wal-Mart to just look at all the nice new cookbooks that I need to buy when I win the lottery. lol
I will root around my amazon and ebay stuff to see if I have any interesting books. I usually have a list of books I want but that are not in my budget right now. I will add them later…keep checking back.
