Linda a.k.a Heartfire At Home

Hi Susan!

Hi Susan,

Books! I love books!

That picture with the eggs in it is gorgeous, and I have to agree, they (egg pictures) would look great in a frame. They just give off a very earthy, natural, comforting, cocooning sort of vibe.

And some eggs are so pretty!

I have 3 beautifully lacquered egg bowls at home.

They're in the shape of eggs, but about 4 inches high, and the tops lift off so you can put things inside. They're lacquered in golds, reds, and speckly colours and are just my favourite things to display and hold onto.

Linda. :)

I could be lost for a week reading through your cookbooks! What a great collection!

I have heard about people who read cookbooks instead of novels. You must one of those! I guess they are addictive!


Hey Susan, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my NYC post! I also love cookbooks, and have among my collection my grandma's Better Homes & Gardens Encyclopedia of Cooking from the late 50s or early 60s (ooh, very Mad Men, I might have to post that sometime). It really is an encyclopedic set, 18 books, tons of great photos, definitely a different approach to entertaining (very few do-ahead recipes, lots of work for the hostess).

On my recent NYC trip I bought Nigella Lawson's Nigella Express at The Strand and read it cover to cover like a novel and then made the baked chicken with brandy and bacon, and the moon glow tomato salad. Dee-lish!

Happy cookbooking!


Happy new year, Susan!

That's sure a lot of cookbooks! I don't think I've ever seen that many in someone's home. Just the local bookstore! Julia Child would be proud.


Happy Rosh Hashanah Susan! I hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday meal with your family@

Your cookbook collection is amazing! What treasures!

I miss reading those cook books... they're incredibly entertaining when bored and looking for something to do.


Love your cookbook collection! Isn't fun to read cookbooks--I could spend hours, too...

Happy Rosh Hashanah, Susan! Hope you created more wonderful memories with your family!

Happy New Year, Susan!
It's funny, I knew you had cookbooks, but I didn't know how many! I've never been to you kitchen, yet I do remember the store! Actually, I shouldn't be surprised.
My first cookbook was a paperback Vegetarian book that I bought for myself in 1975. My next cookbook didn't come again until 1980- The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook (I think that's the name!) was a shower gift. I still refer to that one when I need a simple recipe for something.
I doubt I have bought a cookbook for myself since that original, because besides that shower gift, my mother has given me books (Armenian recipes, and Martha Stuart) and Bill and the kids have given me MANY different kinds- from Chinese to New Orleans. Do you think they were trying to tell me something??


Hi Susan
You have an amazing collection of cookbooks. I'm sure you must make a lot of delicious recipes in your kitchen! I am having a welcome fall party on Tuesday to celebrate the first day of fall and I'd love it if you joined in. You can read about it on my blog.

You definitely have the best cookbook collection I know of. Love it!

Happy new year! :-)
