My Cookbook Collection

Hi everyone! Today I want to talk about my cookbook collection. For someone who does not cook a lot I have an insane amount of cookbooks! Some of which I have cooked out of, others I have not used yet!
The first cookbook I am going to talk about is actually four books. They are all by Giada de Laurentiis. She does have other cookbooks; I just do not have them yet. I really enjoy Italian food so Giada is my favorite chef on Food Network. Not only do I have her cookbooks I also have her cooking videos. I did make one of her recipes. I made the chicken chopped salad in butter lettuce cups, and it turned out great! I definitely plan to make more from the books and videos.
The second cookbook I am going to talk about is Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook called, Cravings. I have yet to make anything from the cookbook, but I definitely want to. If I am being totally honest I originally bought the book, because it was by Chrissy Teigen. I plan on making the King’s Hawaiian BLPTS very soon!
The next book I am going to talk about is the Food Network magazines. I have only bought three editions so far, but I really do enjoy them. I made chicken cacciatore from the Italian issue and it was my favorite! I definitely plan on making it again. Besides the Italian issue I also have the summer pasta cookbook edition and the summer edition. These magazines are the best five dollars you will spend!
The last cookbook I am going to talk about is Eat like a Gilmore. It is based off of Gilmore Girls, and I love it! I have not cooked out of it yet, but definitely will soon. Some of the recipes in this book are; salmon puffs, rocky road cookies, founders day punch, and mock turtle soup.
These are just a few of the cookbooks I have. I definitely plan on trying these recipes out more this coming year. I look forward to sharing my favorites with you all! What are your favorite cookbooks? Let me know in the comment below!

Rosanna Pansino Baking Line

Hello everyone! Today I am going to tell you about Rosanna Pansino’s baking line. Those of you who know me know that I do not cook. Not because I cannot cook but because I am super lazy! Well I recently got on a kick of buying recipe books and cooking products. Lately I have been buying products from YouTube star Rosanna Pansino’s baking line and I want to tell you all about it!
The first product I got and used was the smart cookie stamp. It was fall break for a little girl I watch, and thought that it was cute and would be so much fun for us to do! With this I decided to buy the cookie dough and not make it ourselves. When it came time to let the little girl use the stamp I thought it would be easier to flatten the balls of dough before stamping. I quickly learned that the little girl and I were not on the same page. She did not even wait for me to flatten the dough before she started stamping. Even though the stamping process got a little crazy the stamp transferred really well and held up! The little girl loved looking at the cookies and was even begging for one as soon as they came out of the oven. It was only nine in the morning though, so she had to wait! A little side note, during this process the little girl and I quickly realized that cookies expand in the oven. Needless to say our cookies came out a little crazy, but the pattern was super cute!
The second product I bought was the mustache shaped cookie cutter. This time I used the mustache cookie cutter with A, another little girl I watch. She also was on fall break. This go around I made the cookie dough from scratch due to a ton of food allergies! These cookies were a big hit! A even had the idea to make lip shaped cookies to pair with the mustache cookies. These cookies were so much fun to make and just as fun to eat!
The last baking product I bought was the poop emoji treat pan! I made cake in this pan, and it turned out fantastic! It was easy to take the cake out of the mold and the shape held up! It was even a big hit with my mom and brothers! I will definitely be using it again!
A couple non baking products I got were Rosanna’s Nerdy Nummies Cookbook and the half apron. The cookbook is so great! It has so many fun recipes to make, from a chemistry lab cake to emoticon cookies. There is even an 8 bit heart cocoa recipe! The cookbook even has many great resources for beginner bakers! It is a must buy! The apron is also the perfect addition to a new found love of baking and/or cooking. The apron is red and white and covered in pixilated hearts. It is so cute, and I love wearing it!
All in all Rosanna Pansino’s baking line is a must have! You can buy the products I spoke about and many more from Amazon and Michaels. Have you tried or seen her new line? Let me know in the comments below!
P.S: You can watch different videos of Rosanna baking and cooking on her YouTube channel, Nerdy Nummies. She has many cute and yummy recipes on YouTube too!
