Do you collect cookbooks?

I was wondering if there are a lot of collectors out there or not?

I used to collect them still have bunches that I don't use anymore. Taste of Home was probably my favorite, along with Justin Wilson.

I have a cookbook obsession. LOL!! I love to sit and read them like regular books.

One of my favorite things to do is to go to yard sales and hunt for bargain cookbooks!

Funny that I saw this poll today, I just reserved 3 low-carb cookbooks from the library today.

One of my favorites to read is one of Dom DeLuise - of course I think I cut up his name and off the top of my head can't think of the name of it -- but I had been his little Soux Chef once a long long time ago for about an hour. He signed the cookbook. Cool! But it is very interesting to read it because he has stories about the recipes.

Oh, I think it's called Eat this, it'll make you feel better (I think).

Another one that I love and wouldn't trade for anything is called "White Trash Cooking" if I weren't so tired I'd scan some of the pages to show what I mean. The recipes are real old fashioned but the photos would remind you of that movie called "Deliverance".

Another which I don't know where it is now that I'm thinking about it is called "Mayberry" ? all the recipes from the Andy Griffith Show w/ pictures of Aunt Bee and different ones on the show.

I wish I lived closer to you other cookbook addicts so we could sit and trade favorites!

the shelves under my microwave are filled with them ...some I have had since the 50s..but only refer to them once in a while..just don't do much baking or cooking from scratch any more....which reminds me I had a great bread receipe with not much salt..should hunt for it and bake bread again...

I like to find cookbooks too. It is so hard to part with any of the old ones...a bookcase in my living room and still can't resist a new one...read them like they are romance novels too...old ones? From my mother, a 1940s precursor to Betty Crocker, The Home Institute Cookbook, had it rebound and it is my favorite, just have to make low fat mods.

And I am a sucker for whole grain, vegetarian, and WW cookbooks, hard to resist...
