I just added some new cookbooks to add to my library. It was a little gift to myself for Christmas. Cookbooks are great gifts for any occasion. They are also a great gift for yourself – a way to learn new food recipes from you favorite chef, learn about new food ingredients, different cooking methods and open your palette up to a whole new food culture.The books I ordered were a mix from new chefs, classic chefs, world cuisine and making homemade pantry recipes. I’ll be preparing recipes from these cookbooks soon so make sure to check back and see what recipes I cook up in the kitchen.

Check out these new cookbooks I just ordered:
