In exactly one week I’ll be in Vancouver at the Adele concert! I can’t believe that it’s almost here. Before I get too excited about that though, today I’ll be sharing some of my favorite cookbooks. You’ll be able to tell pretty quickly that I love to bake, as most of the cookbooks have baking recipes in them.

 My Favorite Cookbooks
Martha Stewart's Cookies

Martha Stewart’s Cookies // I’ve made so many different cookies from this cookbook and they’ve all been delicious – not one has turned out iffy so far. If I’m in the mood to make cookies or I’m bringing them somewhere, this is the cookbook I go to right away to find something tasty. My favorite recipe from Martha Stewart’s Cookies (affiliate link) is the gingersnap cookies. They’re full of flavor and perfectly crunchy.

Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook

Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book // My mom got this cookbook when she moved out on her own, and she still uses it today. There are a couple recipes in it that we as a family love (the cornbread and chicken fried rice). They’ve obviously put out newer editions since she bought hers and the recipes have changed, but if you’re looking for a great all around cookbook this is the one to check out. My mom actually bought me one when I moved out and I used it a ton when I living in Lethbridge. They’ve been selling the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book (affiliate link) since the 1930’s, so it has to be good if it’s been around for that long.

 America's Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook

The America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook // One of my favorite Saturday morning activities is watching America’s Test Kitchen on PBS. Everything they make on that show looks beyond delicious. They basically take a recipe and perfect it. While most of their recipes require some extra work, I’ve never been disappointed. I found this one at Costco, but it’s also available on Amazon (affiliate link). There are quite a few cookbooks from ATK, but this one appealed to me because it has healthy recipes in it.

America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book

America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book // Like I mentioned earlier, I love to bake. When I came across The America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book (affiliate link) on Amazon I knew I wanted to get it. I’ve made the date nut bread recipe before for my dad and he loved it. My favorite thing that I’ve made from it are lemon poppy seed muffins. Yes, they’re as delicious as they sound. The fact that these ATK cookbooks are ring bound make it super easy to lay on the counter and not worry about losing your place because they lay flat.

Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook

Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook // Two Martha Stewart cookbooks made my list. The photography is this book is seriously amazing. Every single recipe has a photo to go with it, and your mouth will be watering by the time you’re done flipping through it. My favorite recipes from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook (affiliate link) are the brown sugar pound cake (perfect with a scoop of ice cream) and jam crumb bars.

    I love Rachael Ray’s Week in a Day Cookbook. It has a ton of good recipes and I like that she sets it up so that you can buy & prep things in one day if you’d like.

      Sounds like that would be pretty handy. I know my dad likes her and has one of her cookbooks. I’ll have to check it out.
