confessions of a cooking diva

Today I’m posting my first ever gift guide and it’s all about cookbooks. As you may very well be aware of I have an obsession with cookbooks. I own around 40 of them. I read them like a novel and look at them over and over again. My wish list of cookbooks rivals my wish list of makeup.

This cookbook gift guide is all about my absolute favorite cookbooks. These are not the latest and greatest, but will be winners with any cookbook lover in your life.

Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up.

All of the recipes are doable for the average cook and the photography will make you drool. Jessica sprinkles her cookbook with advice and great stories, definitely for the one who reads cookbooks like a novel.
