Jumping on a Meme

I found a meme specific to cookbooks, courtesy of FoodBlog which led me to SpiceBlog!

Anyway, just had to jump onboard!

OK here we go ahm meme thingy. Post a picture of you cookbooks and answer the following questions that I'll make up now and ask myself -

1. Rationale behind what we're seeing?
I cheated, and did not take a picture... my cookbooks and cooking magazines are scattered all over the house.

2. Most recommended?
I like Crescent Dragonwagon's Soup and Bread Cookbook a lot. Not specifically a veggie cookbook, but there are a lot of vegetarian recipes in there. There's an entire section of vegetable soups, and also one of bean-based soups.

3. Cookbook that made you what you were?
I grew up with the Frugal Gourmet cookbooks. His Frugal Gourmet Cooks American is fantastic -- it's actually an ethnic cookbook, covering many groups that immigrated to the US. I'm also pretty partial to The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines.

4. Porniest cookbook?
I'm going to split this honor between two magazines, actually... Cooks Illustrated and Saveur are food porn at its porny best.

5. Sophie's Choice cookbook?
*whimpers* I can only choose one? I'm going to cheat again and choose a website: vegweb.com. This way, I still have access to thousands of recipes. Mwahahhahha!

6. If you were a cookbook, which cookbook would you be?
Okay, I've been pondering this one, and having a terrible time. Gonna have to skip it for now.

7. If your cookbook were extremely valuable, so valuable you might hide it with other valuables, where would that place be?
On one of my other bookshelves. I own literally thousands of books, so hiding the cookbook in plain sight seems the best strategy.

Shop at your favorite stores 24 hours a day. Why go to the mall when you can shop online and avoid the traffic
