Let's Whip Something Up

Friday, September 19, 2014

I more of a baker than a chef, but when the mood strikes or when I find a recipe on Pinterest that I just have to try, you'll find me in the kitchen measuring things out like I totally know what I'm doing. 9 times out of 10, I don't. Cooking for me is all about experimentation and a lot of trial and error. I have to be okay that something I try probably won't look as good as the picture, but I made it so I'm always a little bit proud. As for inspiration, I  love scrolling through pages on Pinterest, but to switch it up, I like to flip through some of my favorite cookbooks. Each is wondrous in their own way and they contain some of absolute favorite recipes. Here are a few of those favorite recipes from my favorite cookbooks. 


Any favorite cookbooks that I should check out? Share them with me in the comments below!

  2. That Tartine book! Yum. I love cookbooks but I never get a chance to try anything in them. Or I don't MAKE a chance. I'd love to try out more recipes. I stick to basic basics most of the time. But I've wanted the Smitten Kitchen cookbook since it came out - I've had really good experiences trying the recipes on that site.

  5. I have a million cookbooks but tend to use Pinterest more these days. I'm not a very passionate chef, aka I'd rather my husband cook :) However, when choosing a recipe I like to see pictures and reviews! :)

  6. Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi is a good cookbook! I'm not the best chef for I really need to pick up some cookbooks myself <3

  9. I remember the first time I had Blue Bottle Coffee when I was a student in San Francisco. If coffee could take your breath away, that one did. I need to move back. Oh and Tartine...Don't get me started. I need those cookbooks!

  10. I've always loved glancing at cookbooks in the bookstore but I have never actually bought one. I think it's mainly because I will fail miserably at cooking whatever is inside the book. I have tried a few Pinterest recipes though! They didn't come out too bad so maybe it's time to invest in a cookbook!

  11. I don't have any cookbooks but I loved the camp bells one growing up at my parents house. I use Pinterest and am constantly trying to recipes. Just tonight for dinner we had crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup, delicious!

  16. Yuuum! I have been wanting to invest in more cookbooks. Pinterest is a great source but I feel I am more inclined to try something if I have the recipe right in front of me.
