Heather's Entry

MY EVERYDAY GRACES

Heather joins us today with her collection and a nice description of how she keeps all theses books in line (I need to learn a lesson here). Her blog is full of information, inspiration and fun and right now little chicks too. I encourage you to stop by MY EVERYDAY GRACES to get in on all of the activity.
Here is Heather's email.
I'm a bit compulsive when it comes to cookbooks...I haven't sought professional help yet, but perhaps it's time?? As you can tell, I didn't pick up before taking this photo. However, I do try to keep some semblance of organization when it comes to the books.
First, I shelve them alphabetically by country (American, French, Greek, Irish, Italian, etc.) After those I have a section for celebrity chefs and then soups/stews, desserts, food/wine pairings, cheeses etc...you know speciality topics.
I would like to say I have cooked out of every book I own but regretfully I have not. I do enjoy perusing the pages and dreaming of different dishes though:) Maybe I should make it a goal to cook out of each book in the next twelve months? Hmmm, possibilities.
If I were to win a new book I would choose one on canning/preserving like the new Williams Sonoma Art Of Preserving.

Thank you Heather for your entry....I have lovingly given her the nickname "The Librarian".

Darned good tips, Heather. When we FINALLY get our books back in the house, we'll be following this.

Wow. That is a lot of books! And seriously OCD - I thought I was bad sorting in size order!
