Christmas Loot #3: In The Kitchen!

Today is the day that I move to the adults for the literary holiday loot, starting with my husband.  Let me tell you . . . my hubby is quite the catch!  Just one of the reasons why is because he can cook . . . and he does it well!!  He gets very excited about finding a good cookbook and our collection is slowing growing because of him.  I really do not care to cook.  I would rather bake.  Basically, it is thanks to him that we eat fairly healthy and well-balanced meals in this household!  Luck for the whole family!  For Christmas this year, he scored big time with four cookbooks.  Take a look . . . 

Wife:  Simply Ming One Pot Meals by Ming Tsai & Arthur Boehm
Wife:  Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries, & Shakes by Bobby Flay, Stephanie Banyas, & Sally Jackson
Giftcard from the In-Laws:  Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume I & II by Julia Child

We (or I should rather say he!) have not yet had the opportunity to try any of the new recipes, but I cannot wait personally!  I love the look of some of Ming's and Bobby's recipes!!

What are some of your recommendations for the amateur chefs in your lives?


  1. All are cool, but double cheers for Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume I & II by Julia Child!

  2. 365andMe . . . I think my hubby is going to try one of the recipes from Child's book this weekend! I can't wait!!

  3. Tif, I know I am sounding like a broken record, but grab a camera and take a pic of what he cooks. I wanna see it! I'll show it to

  4. 365andMe . . . You got it! That's actually a really good idea!
