Cookbook Collectors Corner

Group active since Wed, Jan 06, 2010

How did your cookbook collection start? Perhaps someone gave you a gift and it started your romance with cookbooks, or you inherited your family favorite cookbooks.

It will be interesting to hear how and why you started collecting cookbooks and what are your favorites.

Do you collect regional cookboooks, antique cookbooks or one type only, please share your thoughts.

If you are a cooking newbie, perhaps you will find the perfect cookbook for you to start with.

Buying used books

Has anyone bought a book from Abebooks.com? Just wondering if it is safe to buy from that site.

Barefoot Contessa recipe for Triple Berry Muffins

Hello everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has one of Barefoot Contessa's cookbooks that has a recipe for these muffins. I can't remember if she called them Tri-Berry Muffins or Triple Berry Muffins. I've been watching her TV cooking show and want to try some of her recipes; but do not have her cookbook, yet. I checked the website for Foodnetwork and can't find them there. My daughter asked me to make muffins and I would love to try these. Thank you.

adding recipes

I wish there was an easier way to add recipes to JAP.....it would be great to add a link to my blog and have them automatically added, instead of having to write them out. Even being able to copy and paste would be nice....am I missing something or not doing it right?

Original???????

I thought the recipes submitted in the "Recipes for Love" were suppose to be the persons/posters 'own original recipe'?????

Did I read that wrong???

I see a lot of recipes summited that are just copies of other recipes.

RULES:
"1. Enter your original recipe with a simple click... then,"


I APPLAUD THOSE OF YOU WHO FOLLOW THE RULES, AND HAVE POSTED THEIR ORIGINAL RECIPESā™„

FOUND OLD COOKBOOK

WHEN MY DAD PASSED AWAY IN MAY, I HAD TO PACK, SHIP, AND HAUL AWAY STUFF. WHILE I WAS PACKING UP THE BOOKS, I FOUND MY GREAT GRANDMA COOKBOOK, SHE HAD COLLECTED RECIPES THOUGH OUT HER LIFE AND WROTE THEM IN THIS BOOK. NOW I HAVE MADE SOME OF THESE RECIPES AND SMELLS FROM MY KITCHEN ARE MEMORIES FROM HER KITCHEN.
