New Cookbooks

Ok Ok Ok Adelle here are some new posts ...just for you!!!

For those people who don't know Adelle is a woman I work with who just sent me a message via someone else post on Facebook telling me to get off Facebook and get some new posts up...so here come some.

As I may have said before I am a 'bit' of a cookbook junkie. I really should go to CookBook's Annonymous just to be able to utter that famous line..."Hi everyone, my name is Megan and I am a Cookbookaholic!" Just to prove my point I thought I would show you just the latest shipment of books I have had. Aside from the Brett McGregor and the Celebration Cupcakes one, all the others came from Amazon (the UK one)...well they had free shipping if you spent over 25 pounds AND the pound is really good for our Kiwi dollars!!! 

Not only do I have a wee bit of an obsession with cookbooks, but I also have an ongoing love affair with cooking magazines. I have really tried to curb my habit but it is SO hard! The main problem is that I end up with so many recipes and then confusion reigns over where a recipe was and then what it was!

From what I can see the Mich Turner one is fantastic; the sugar flower one probably not what I was expecting; the macaron ones really good; the Sky High cakes one average and the Weekend baking one good. The Brett McGregor one is lovely and the Cupcake one fantastic...but then again I have her first one called 'Divine Cupcakes' and it is also really good...in fact one of the two cupcake books I use pretty much all the time.

So hopefully I will be posting lots from these in the next month or so...er until I get another lot unless I can restrain myself. Here's hoping!

  1. Wow, Megan, so many books! It is extra tempting at the moment with those exchange rates, isn't it? I love The Book Depository - also UK-based, free shipping for everything, and shipping usually only takes a week - my book purchase rate has definitely increased since I figured that out! :-)
