favorite cookbooks written by bloggers

I've always thought it would be really neat to write a cookbook. I've never really been interested in writing a novel but writing a cookbook seems like so much fun. It's also the perfect combination of some of my favorite things - creating, designing, cooking, photographing. There is one small problem with the whole fantasy of writing a cookbook...I'd have to quit my job and spend all day recipe writing/testing. 

This being said, I'm constantly amazed by the AMAZING cookbooks written by some of my favorite bloggers. If I thought their blogs were a work of art, these books take everything to the next level. They are every bit as enticing, enchanting and mesmerizing as the blogs (and authors) themselves! 

Seriously Delish // Jessica Merchant of How Sweet It Is
This is my all time favorite food blog. I've been following her blog for several years not and I feel like we are best friends. Her photos are incredible and she writes the most hilarious commentary amongst outrageously delicious recipes. If you only follow one blog and only purchase one book, this is the one. Trust me.

An all-around great cookbook to have on hand. Everything is made from scratch and it's a lot of comfort foods stepped up a notch. Hoping Santa puts this one under the tree this year!

Date Night In // Ashley Rodriguez of Not Without Salt
I've been waiting for this cookbook for a LONG time. Her blog is stunning. The premise of her blog and cookbook is centered around date nights so each section of her book highlights a different date night menu with recipes for each item. This would be such a great gift for a newlywed couple. I've already pre-ordered my copy. Also, by her cookie mix and put one in every stocking.

Dessert For Two // Christina Lane of Dessert for Two
I'm pretty much banned from baking unless it's for an occasion because C feels like he has to eat everything I bake. This blog is adorable and perfect for anyone who just has a liiiiittttle sweet tooth. Her methods are easy and straight-forward because often time a recipe for 24 isn't as simple as cutting it down to 6.

Top with Cinnamon // Izy Hossack of Top with Cinnamon
First things first, Izy is 18....18!!! She's still pursuing her education full time while maintaining her blog and writing a freaking cookbook (and taking all her own pictures). Her book is beautiful and her recipes are wonderful. I could just stare at her pictures all day. Still so amazed that she's only 18...

What are some of your favorite cookbooks? I think a great cookbook makes an awesome gift along with a few handy kitchen gadgets or a monogrammed apron!

  1. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    I'm adding this link to my end of NaBloPoMo wrap up post which will publish on December 1. :) Thanks for the new blogs to read - I already had Smitten Kitchen in my reader but the others are new to me,

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader. So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear.

    I have created three bundles on Inoreader so that bloggers can easily visit other participating NaBloPoMo bloggers which you can find here -

    Your blog is in the second bundle.. I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts. You may see me drop by again during November, but it might be December before I finish my first drop by to blogs if I don't get faster at leaving comments. :)

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
