I did quite a bit of cooking these past winter months. I baked a lot of bread and made plenty of soup. I’ve decluttered 18 cookbooks so far this year and now I am down to owning 172 cookbooks. My challenge to make a minimum of two recipes from every cookbook I own and decide whether or not to keep it continues.
There have been several instances where I’ve come across a cookbook that doesn’t inspire two recipes to begin with and the decision to pass it on is an easy one. Such was the case this past month.
I have a few professional baking books that I needed to make a decision about whether or not to keep. Additionally, I have numerous American cookbooks that were due for a good audit.
I don’t have a specific goal in mind when it comes to how many cookbooks I’m willing to own. My objective is to only possess the ones that I want to reach for over and over. And, it would be lovely if they all fit on one bookcase.
