"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


Kittchenette Update part 2: My 5 Favorite Cookbooks

Well as I wrote in part one of my little kitchenette up-dates, I was so excited about my new arrivals coming, that I thought sure I'd take pictures of everything! But since living life (getting rid of fleas and mixing up some remedies for bug bites) sometimes gets in the way of that, I'm just briefly sharing a bit about the cookbooks in my kitchenette today.

Favorite cookbooks

These are the books I go to time and again knowing I'll find good recipes, frugal options, and good ol' fashion methods. Half sit on the shelf in perfect reach in the kitchenette, but a few require getting out the computer. (In the future, I'd much prefer to get hard-copies. But since I was so much on-the-go when I added a couple of these titles, kindle was a great option.)

  The best cookbooks I have and the ones I'd recommend to everyone:


Find these and more of my favorite books on my here on my Books page, or over on my Library pinboard.

    1. I'm glad you got it in your hands! (I miss my old copy...it's just not the same reading that one on the computer-though the ice cream one perfect as an e-book!) Sorry I missed this - I'm having so much fun with your link-ups! Let me know what recipes you most enjoy out of Nourishing Traditions!
