Cooking and books...

I love cooking and baking. I have tons of recipe books and I am an active member of recipezaar trying out many new recipes every week. It's rare that I make the same recipe twice!! My favorite thing to bake I think is muffins!
Here's part of my cookbook collections. Got lots of Cooking Light and Weight Watchers books as I am always on the lookout for low calorie/low fat recipes. I am a lifetime member at WW... with 10 pounds to loose!! ;)



... Guess that's why I have 10 pounds to loose!! :)

Nutella brownies... not low fat nor low calories!!

Some of these cookbooks look so familiar. . . but excuse me, now I have to go search for some chocolate! Great job catching a slice of everyday life!

Nicole said...

I so wish I loved to cook. I'm sure I could end up making myself some yummy things that were low fat. Ugh.

LOL, You and i are in the same boat. 10 punds MUST go... but darn those brownies look gooooood. Great shots! I'm so bored with my menu too. So i've bought all i need, except for some fresh herbs for Giada De Luarentiis (Everything Italian) -Farmer's Pasta-

I'm back at WW myself, with 5 more lbs to go, but I don't think I'm ever going to actually finish, for me it's a process, definitely not an event. Ok, you made me hungry, gotta go find something that is only 1 point.

I've never made muffins? I really should if they're your fav thing to make. I make cakes, cookies and all sorts of things but never never a muffin :).. Great post and how fun that you like to cook so much. I would have a LOT more than ten pounds to lose if I cooked more!

Amy said...

Mandy said...

Kristina said...

Ha, ha...what a fun bunch of cookbooks though. I can just sit and read those like novels.

I love cookbooks too and thankfully, DH works for a publisher so I get them all the time. Maybe I'll have to keep my eyes out for you next time.

Becky said...

I collect cookbooks like crazy, but unlike you I'm not much of a cook. Man, I love Nutella. I want the recipe even though I'm doing Weight Watchers too. (Why has it gotten so much harder since I turned 40? Arrgh.)
