Cookbooks and a Sad Lack of Photos!

Oh, no! A blog post on Step by Step in the Kitchen with NO PHOTOS! Can’t have that, so I’ve put up one photo from a meal I fixed while on vacation. No details, just a photo.

What was I thinking when I looked through my son’s cookbook collection on my recent trip to Maryland? I knew I wanted to share a list of the books, but I never thought to take a photo. Good grief, Charley Brown!

In lieu of a picture, I came up with links for most of these books so you can see pictures and find out details.

Are any of these cookbooks in your collection?

Again, sorry that I neglected to take a photo of the cookbooks! Can't let that happen again. Photos are such a fun part of blogs, at least as far as I'm concerned.


LIKE Step by Step in the Kitchen on Facebook. I'll be posting extra notes and photos there.


  1. Haha that's alright my friend, lots of photos in the next one ;)
    Your son certainly has an insane collection of cookbooks wow!

    Choc Chip Uru

    1. It is a crazy collection, CCU, and notice that he, too, likes chocolate. I don't think he's bought a cookbook in years.

  2. Oh my, I'm gonna end up buying more cookbooks...
    Thanks for the ideas ;-)

    1. Carine, you can never have too many cookbooks. The Internet is great, but a book in hand is so different and I love it. You're welcome, and stop by again sometime.

  3. I don't own any of them, but would love that chocolate book from Williams-Sonoma!

    1. There are definitely some old-timers there, Angie, but those are often the "keepers"! Any chocolate book, definitely a keeper ~ LOL. What an excellent blog you have ~ loaded with great recipes! Thanks for stopping by, Angie. Come back anytime.
