Best Cookbooks of 2018

Every year, I like to share my favorite cookbooks from the year. 2018 was a DELICIOUS year! There were SO many good cookbooks. I am still working on cooking my way through them all.

Cookbooks make a great gift for anyone and if you are looking to update your cookbook library, I highly recommend all of these. Enjoy!

The Pretty Dish-this book is filled with creative and delicious recipes, plus lots of fun DIY beauty recipes! It’s one of my all-time favorites!

Cravings: Hungry for More-The recipes in Chrissy’s new cookbook really will leave you craving ALL of the things!

Everyday Dorie-Dorie is my one of my favorite people on the planet. I love her and her recipes. Her latest cookbook is filled with approachable recipes that are perfect for any night of the week! And don’t worry, there is a dessert chapter too:)

Magnolia Table-You can’t go wrong with anything by Joanna. Love this book!

Skinnytaste One and Done-If you need help getting dinner on the table, this book is for you. All of the recipes are for dinnertime and they are all made in one pot, skillet, air fryer, sheet pan, etc. It’s a dinner lifesaver!

Eat a Little Better-Eating better has never tasted SO good!

The Cookie Book-You know I love a good cookie and Rebecca knows her cookies. Bring on the cookies!

Cook Like a Pro-If Ina has a new book, you better believe I am buying it. She is the queen!

  1. Hello – I have not been receiving your weekly newsletter that I have received over the years.  I even tried to sign up for  the bonus recipes and I still do not receive anything in my inbox or in my spam.  Also, do you have an update on when your cookbook is coming out?  Love all your recipes and This and Thats!!

  2. I have absolutely no business acquiring more cookbooks but I can’t help myself!  Might need Dorie’s book and simple. And season.   🙂
