  1. These are so gorgeous. I love asparagus so these are a must try. So elegant, almost too pretty for game day. But I’ll make them anyway. Thanks so much for joining us this week for this event. We were thrilled to have you. xx

  2. My most-used cookbook is my Joy of Cooking, but my favorite is a cookbook that was my mother’s–her only cookbook, and I don’t think I ever saw her use it (obviously a big difference between us!). It’s called “The American Woman’s Cookbook,” circa early 1950s.

  3. I have the very first cookbook on the list and love it: Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just For You by Kathy Hester. I also won some flavored oils from her so she is my fave cookbook lady for good reason!
