Kitchen Book Wishlist

I’ve got a few kitchen books on my wish list and thought I’d share them with you. I actually just received a copy of Too Many Cooks from Emily Franklin, though I’m including it on my wish list because I haven’t yet had more than a few moments here and there to really get started on it with all the packing for vacation going on. It sounds fascinating to me, but perhaps that’s because as a mom I have a soft spot for kitchen and family memories. It is definitely making it into my carry-on for airplane reading. Or, at this point, already has, since I’ve written this post in advance.

Quoted from Amazon:

“Emily Franklin’s food memoir Too Many Cooks was born of two simple loves: food and children…Franklin seasons her stories with how-I-did-it advice on cooking and parenting that makes this such a delightful and inspiring read. And with more than 100 simple, mouthwatering dishes, Too Many Cooks is a happy mix of recipes, memories, and good storytelling.”

A mix of great recipes, memories, and good storytelling is what I strive for goodLife {eats} to be.

Have you read any great kitchen books lately – cookbooks, novels, memoirs, or reference books? Please, do share!

I read Molly's and loved it and I also really enjoyed Julie and Julia.

I have the Harvest & Homemade Life ones. Both great. Molly's is the best book I've read in a great while. I've been wanting that Too Many Cooks book, and I love Elin Hilderbrand for summer reading. Be sure to read Ruth Reichl's books (all 4 of them) if you haven't already. I'm in the midst of reading 'My Life in France." (Julia Child) Next up I'm getting "The Sharper Your Knife, the Less you Cry." The author spoke at our IFBC conference & it was recommended from some of the bloggers there.

I LOVED a homemade life...what a great read. I've also been reading Home Cooking and Alice Let's Eat. Julie and Julia was a great book as well, and with the movie coming out this summer I recommend reading the book first.
