Cookbook Sundays # 8


Cookbook Sundays Badge 

If you're anything like me you have dozens of cookbooks gathering dust on your bookshelves, some of which have never even been cooked from.  Sure I spent hours browsing through them when I first bought them, marking all the recipes I was going to make with little post-it notes, and yet still those books languish in the bookcase and never make it to the kitchen.  There are others from which I have made but one recipe which was such a resounding success that I've made it over and over again, and yet somehow I've never made anything else from that book.  Sound a bit familiar?!

Take comfort - you are not alone, and now Cookbook Sundays is your opportunity to change that.  Every Sunday I'm going to share with you a recipe that I haven't made before from one of my ever expanding collection of cookbooks.  And, because I know that if you have read this far then you are guilty of this too, I'm inviting you to join in with me.  Each week my Cookbook Sundays post will have a linky for you to share something you've cooked from one of your cookbooks.

The rules for joining in are simple:
  1. Your post must state the author and the title of the book your recipe has come from.
  2. Your post must mention Cookbook Sundays and link back to this post.  Including the Cookbook Sundays badge is optional, but always appreciated.
  3. You may submit as many entries as you like, and you may use the same cookbook as many times as you like.  Old posts are also welcome.
  4. Lastly,  remember that what goes around, comes around - one of the reasons you are participating in this is because you want people to read your posts, so do the right thing and go and visit a few of the other participants - you can even "Like" your favourites. 
Now, go and dust off those cookbooks and get cooking!  Use the linky tool at the end of this post to submit your entry/entries - simply scroll down to where it says "You are next ... Click here to enter", and then follow the instructions.  The linky will be open for one week.

Lastly, if you would like to use the Cookbook Sundays badge in your post, simply copy the code in the box beside the badge below and paste it into your post.  Feel free to also use it in your sidebar if you wish.

By the way ... come visit again tomorrow - I'll be sharing a fabulous Almond, Orange, Lemon & "44" Cake from the River Cafe Italian Cookbook.  See you then.

  1. Thanks for hosting! I brought kebabs this week (although I didn't use skewers). They're from what is becoming one of my favorite cookbooks: Food From Many Greek Kitchens.

    1. Michelle your kebabs look wonderful - transported me back to Paros and memories of many wonderful Greek feasts. My copy of Food From Many Greek Kitchens just arrived - am busy bookmarking all the things I want to make.

    1. April, thanks so much for joining in with Cookbook Sundays.

      This seems like a fantastic recipe, and very intriguing on so many fronts. Can't wait to give this a try.

      I've flicked through Nigella's "Kitchen" several times at the book store, and have it on my wishlist.

  5. I have been trying to get here, since Sunday, but each time, I got here, something happened and I had to leave the computer. I made it and hope you enjoy the two recipes, I linked.

    1. Chaya, funny how life gets in the way like that sometimes :-)

      Anyway, glad that you finally make it, and thank you for sharing your two dishes with Cookbook Sundays.
