What are you Hooked On?

Julia from Hooked on Houses is sponsoring a Hooked on Fridays, and is asking everyone what they are hooked on today. Well, I have to admit, I am hooked on Cookbooks, especially Baking Books. If I had more room , there would be more books in my collection. But, thanks to the Internet, finding recipes and reviews for those recipes have become even easier. You really do not have to purchase a book unless you absolutely love it. And if your like me, you read them like a favorite novel in bed, before you go to sleep at night, and then dream of your next creation.

Fannie was my very first Baking Book, given to me by my BFF Shanna. There are tried and true recipes in here!

I know this seems a little quirky, but she really does have some great ideas for cake mixes. The Chocolate Biscotti is a favorite!
She has also written 3 more excellent books.

There is alot of great recipes in here: pate choux, rugelach, pastry cream.

Great book I just purchased, after reading all the bloggers out there that do "Tuesdays with Dorie", as they work their way through the book.

I know alot of you may not be fans, but I absolutely am!
She has some great recipes in here, including the pizza dough
which is super easy to make.

I love cookbooks. I check stacks of them out from the library and can spend hours sitting and reading them. Like you, I'll fantasize about what I'm going to make. I'll mark pages with Post-It notes and sometimes even type recipes up and stick them in my file for later.

However, I have to admit I'm not much of a real baker. I do more fantasizing than real cooking.

Thanks for joining my blog party. Great post! :-)

It feels great knowing that there are other people who also enjoy reading cookbooks. I always loved reading cookbooks, marking up recipes to try later. However, I have so many cookbooks that I need to live passed try most of them.
