Wow! Be nice if you'd feature one once in a while. Would be great to see. BTW, that is one cool chair!

This is a portion of my cookbook collection. I have issues of Cook's Illustrated dating to 2003. They're all going, except for Julia Child and Joy of Cooking. I find I'm using the internet for the same exact recipes, and I could use the space for my Le Creuset collection.

Cookbook's still sell very well

even in the internet age. I rotate one on my kitchen counter on a stand every so often. A more tech savvy cook might use an I-pad. I like photo cook books.
Lazy, I like your cabinets. Are they Smallbone, or Canadian brand? Mine are solid cherry, but not door inside frame, just full overlay doors. Door inside frame construction is the highest end. I can tell your oven is Kitchen Aid.

Hi Vacerator, my name is Steve. I put my iPad in ziplock bag, and use for almost all recipes now. Thanks for the comment on the cabinets. They are all solid cherry, inside and out, custom made, by a well respected cabinet maker. I actually have a lot of books, commissioned him for a bookcase under the proviso the shelves don't bow. He mitred a steel bar into them, so you can't see them at all. After that, he did the entire house. Kitchen, mud and laundry room took about 2 years to complete, most of the cabinets have pull outs. His attention to detail is no less than 99.9% perfection. Let me know if you'd like to see other pix. My appliances are at the moment all KitchenAid, but that's changing in about 2 weeks. Wolf ovens and cooktop, a Liebherr fridge, Thermador warming drawer. Nothing wrong with KA's, my niece and nephew bought a new house, needed new appliances, and I was just looking for any excuse to get new ones...

I just cant

Give up books, I like something I can actually put in my hand that is ancient and know some young bride many manny years ago held that same book and fed her family with those recipes, I have a few so old they tell you how to fire your wood stove and how to make soap!But if I HAD to give up all but a few I would keep all the Betty Feezor cook books, The 1950 Betty Crocker and the old Better Homes and Gardens.

Yes, the Betty Feezor books for sure. Mrs. Dull's book, and the Purefoy Hotel book. I already have most traditional recipies in my head, however, one of my grandmas used the old Crisco Recipies for the Jewish Housewife. There are just some tastes you have to already know. I am hopelessly Suthun and Ashkenaz.😉

Re crisco cookbook

Crisco really put out some great recipes their layer cake recipe is the best mrs dulls is also good I have many from old tea rooms and dept store restaurants. The Lazarus cookbook is great as is the Virginia McDonald tea room book and the Virginia Francis tea room book

Crisco was especially formulated for the kosher ballabusta. For the first time it was easy to bake many different things pareve with a solid fat rather than an oil. Grandmas old book is in Yiddish.
