As I've mentioned before, I collect cookbooks. I usually pick books from current Chefs like Tessa Kiros, Nigella Lawson, Bill Granger or Jamie Oliver but my friend Lori told me about the Fannie Farmer Cookbook.
The food, usually cookies and other sweets are always delicious! She told me she uses recipes out of her 1946 (I think that's the year) Fannie Farmer cookbook.
She made a believer out of me! While on a road trip to Guthrie today, Jim and I checked out quite a few antique stores and one of them had a 1951 Fanny Farmer cookbook for only $12! I just checked on ebay and found the exact copy selling for over $42!
