Ten Books to Try If You Like To/Want To Cook

Posted April 12, 2016 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Features, Top Ten Tuesday / 52 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish
his week is Ten Books Every X Should Read. I stink at ones like this so I went with books everyone who likes to cook (or has to cook) should have. Some are ones I own and some are ones I really want to get.

5 Cookbooks I Have and Love


Thug Kitchen: The Official Cookbook: Eat Like You Give a F*ck // So I haven’t made a ton of stuff from this one but I love that it is all meatless recipes which is nice to add into my normal meatful rotation
The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Light on Calories, Big on Flavor // This is probably my favorite and most used book. Everything is fairly easy, yummy and on the healthier side.
Budget Bytes: Over 100 Easy, Delicious Recipes to Slash Your Grocery Bill in Half // I don’t really care about the cost savings side of it but the recipes in here are super quick, easy and comforting. 
100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned, and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love //This not only has some really good recipes and kid lunch ideas but some helpful whole food type information in the beginning.
Skinny Ms. Slow Cooker: Natural Recipes for a Healthy Lifestyle //  Overall this isn’t my favorite but there have been a couple of really awesome recipes I still make to this day.

5 Cook Books I Need in My Life


So these are all on my cookbook wish list. I have either read good reviews, like their shows or blogs or like the idea of the book in general.

Damn Delicious: 100 Super Easy, Super Fast Recipes
What the F*@# Should I Make for Dinner?: The Answers to Life’s Everyday Question (in 50 F*@#ing Recipes) 
The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime: Comfort Classics, Freezer Food, 16-Minute Meals, and Other Delicious Ways to Solve Supper! 
Cravings: Recipes for What You Want to Eat
One Pot: 120+ Easy Meals from Your Skillet, Slow Cooker, Stockpot, and More

Do you have any of these? Any cookbooks I should add to my list?

  1. I love looking through cookbooks. For the most part, I don’t really cook from a cookbook though. My husband and daughter both have celiac disease and must eat gluten free. I do use all of the Gluten Free on a Shoestring cookbooks by Nicole Hunn. They have been a lifesaver. I make just about evertyhing we eat from scratch. They had me frying donuts last weekend! Great post!

  2. I rarely buy cookbooks anymore because of the internet, but I might need to get Thug Kitchen, because it sounds hilariously awesome, plus my niece who spends a lot of time here is a vegetarian so it’d be nice to have some great meatless recipes on hand that taste good.

  3. I love this!! I’m always looking for something new to make for dinner… I get bored SO easily with the same old stuff!! SkinnyTaste looks really good. I love recipe books, but they have to be easy and have a low number of ingredients (unless the ingredients are common, then I don’t care as much) because I want to make something that I’ll eventually be able to replicate on my own without the recipe. Great idea for a list 🙂

  4. I think I may be the only woman alive who despises cooking. I’m just so not a fan!!! Maybe it’s because I’m not good at it. I mean, I can get by. I make dinners (albeit very EASY ones) daily, but still. I just don’t think I’ll ever be a cook. I very much feel jealousy toward people who are good cooks though. I should have married a chef. LOL!

  5. oh I love cookbooks!! I have been wanting to get the Pioneer Women’s Cookbook. One of my recent favorites is Little House Living. Great post. Definitely going to add these to my list here.

  6. Oh boy, cookbooks used to be like crack to me. I loved collecting them, flipping through them, flagging recipes in them. And (maybe) once in a blue moon actually making something from one of them. 🙂 I still enjoy flipping thru one now and then but I rarely cook so it’s more just for entertainment. lol I have one from Pioneer Woman but I don’t think it’s the one you have shown. I enjoy catching her show, too. Really fun choice of topic, Grace!
