Lately I have received a spate of emails wanting to know more about the cookbooks and equipment I use at home. I also got a couple emails asking for gift help for people who like to cook.
I complied a list of some of my favorite cookbooks from my personal collection here. I also use most of these cooking items every day. I also can direct you to these general kitchen essentials and baking essentials all of which are items I personally own (or in the case of the oven thermometer, I once owned but broke). These are some suggestions for gifts that I or anyone else would love and for the kids, there are a few more.
