We still love cookbooks! Here are 10 of our favorites. 


  1. The Smitten Kitchen by Deb Perelman – the best meatloaf recipe EVER is on page 187.
  2. One Part Plant by Jessica Murnane – if you need some inspiration for Meatless Mondays or are already a committed vegetarian, this cookbook is perfect. Jessica’s recipes are approachable and EASY. Perfect weeknight meals in this one.
  3. Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon – great resource for traditional recipes with all the details and instructions to walk you through them. Her sauerkraut recipe works like a charm every time!
  4. Fast Food My Way by Jacques Pépin – beautiful and simple French inspired recipes that are quick enough for a weeknight meal and elegant enough to entertain. Try the Raspberry Gratins for a lovely and addictive dessert!
  5. Love Real Food by Kathryne Taylor – another vegetarian star from the Cookie and Kate blog. Fabulous salads!
  6. A Kitchen in France by Mimi Thorisson – this cookbook is best enjoyed curled up in a cozy chair with a hot cup of tea on a rainy afternoon. Mimi’s story will transport you to the French countryside and her recipes will not disappoint.
  7. The Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen – a collection of favorite recipes from Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, NY, you’ll be glad to have found this recommendation. It’s a hidden jewel and a darling cookbook all hand-lettered way before that was a thing.
  8. One Pan, Two Plates by Carla Snyder and Jody Horton – cooking for less always seems to be more challenging than cooking for a crowd. These recipes are one-pot wonders that make weeknight meal prep a breeze.
  9. Thug Kitchen by Thug Kitchen LLC – the official cookbook from the folks that write the blog by the same name.
  10. Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer – called “a fundamental resource for any American cook” by Julia Childs, this cookbook is an all-time classic! Every kitchen should have a copy on the shelf.
