I’m an avid cookbook reader and collector. Some people may use a cookbook like a reference book, but not me. I like to curl up with a new cookbook (or an old favorite), a cup of tea and read it page by page from start to finish. I especially love the ones that have lots of gorgeous photos of the yummy food! If you have someone like me on your gift list this year, check out my list of suggestions. (You might want to check out our Gifts for Cooks post also!) Plus, be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post for your chance to win a copy of Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering from Joanna Gaines.
