I have a few friends & family members who love cookbooks. This is probably why I keep them around These are the cookbooks I'll be gifting this year. They inspire & dazzle and they're guaranteed to earn me good points with the recipient. I just know this.
1. Canal House Cooks Every Day I really can't get enough of this book. This Apple Galette was the first of MANY recipes that will grace my blog. If you're buying this for someone isn't aware of the awesomeness of the Canal House ladies, this is a brilliant introduction.
