Here is my shelves of cookbooks. I find it interesting to see what cookbooks other people have so I will share mine.
More with Less - I use that quite a bit and it looks like I use it which spots and splatters. This has lentil recipes, chicken & pineapple, English Muffins, white sauce and other recipes.
Betty Crocker's Vegetarian Cookbook - there are a number of recipes from that that we enjoy
Betty Crocker's New Cookbook - This is a great go to book for things like meatloaf, cookies, Alfredo, and a few other things.
Red notebook which fits my A4 paper - I did go through that and put everything in the big blue notebook.
Big Blue Notebook - This fits 8.5x11" paper. This has printouts and magazine recipes. I did find some things that I need to try. These are all in page protectors.
Extending the Table - This book has recipes from around the world. I have found a number of lentil and curry recipes in that book.
Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes - I have used this in the past but currently I don't have a refrigerator large enough to store dough.
Wholesome Home Cooking - I have used this some but I think this is a cookbook that I should explore a bit more.
Mennonite Country Style Recipes - I use this for a number of recipes including lots of my Christmas cookies.
Delia's Complete Cookery Course - this was recommended as a great British cooking resource.
Jamie Oliver Comfort Food - I just got this for Christmas and have not cooked from it much.
The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook - I bought this a few years ago and have found a number of recipes that we love in here.
I enjoy looking through cookbooks. I did declutter before we moved.
Here is the work in progress as I sorted through the recipes. I did find quite a number of pages to get rid of and also found a yummy recipe that I used to make.
Here is the stack of papers that I decided to get rid of. For some I decided I will not use the recipe and don't need to keep it.
My big goal in this area it to have a chart of meals we like referencing where the recipe is found. I have not decided if that is a real goal or just one of those dreams.
I do have this done on a small scale for soup, salads, and side dishes. I need to make some better tabs.
My recipes are organised and I did find a few new things to cook. Here is the sausage recipe I discovered.
Italian Sausage & White Bean Bake
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 lb Italian sausages, cut crosswise in 2 in pieces
3 leeks (white and green parts) I used onions
2 medium carrots, cut into 1/2 in pieces
3 clovers garlic, chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 15 oz cans white beans such as cannelloni, rinsed
1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped (I skipped this and maybe added some dried parsley)
salt and pepper
2 cups fresh coarse bread crumbs
Heat over to 375. Heat 1 Tbsp of the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the sausages until browned, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a plate.
Wipe out the pot and head 1 Tbsp of the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the leeks, carrots and garlic and cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 5 to 6 minutes.
Add the wine and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and their juices; bring to a boil. Stir in the beans parsley and 1/4 tsp each sale and pepper. Transfer to a 3 qt casserole dish.
In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs with the remaining oil and sprinkle over the bean mixture. Be until golden brown and bubbling. 25 to 30 minutes
