The lure of cookbooks.

What is it about cookbooks that I find so very hard to resist?

Is it the beautiful styling of the photographs? The dream that one day I'll find the time to actually make something from the pages? Or are cookbooks just another thing that I feel compelled to collect...much like scrapbook paper and fabric?

As this new release found it's way out of the shop and onto my kitchen table today, I found myself asking these very questions :)

Mmmmm...how good do those macaroons look on the cover?

I haven't seen this one yet! Womens weekly books are always lovely with well tested recipes.

That cookbook looks so fun! I just picked up a macarons cookbook at HomeGoods the other day. I think I'm drawn to the pretty pastel images. I love to collect cookbooks too~ kind of silly, since I rarely take time to cook a full meal. I do love to bake though :)

Hugs,
Jill
