52 Ways to Use Your Library Card: Week Eleven

Week Eleven: Get a new recipe.

The holiday season is upon us; which means lots of food, friends, family, and more food. While it may not be your first thought, why not come to the library to plan your upcoming meals? Whether you want a new twist to your holiday favorites or it is your first time cooking a turkey, each branch has several resources that can assist you.

Check out our cookbooks where you can compare similar recipes or find brand new ones. Are you a fan of a celebrity chef or the Food Network? We have many cookbooks from Paula Deen, G. Garvin, Rachel Ray and Bobby Flay, just to name a few.  

How to Cook a Turkey: and all the Other Trimmings is geared towards first time cooks or those who just need a gentle reminder on how to cook the perfect bird.

 Martha Stewart's Cookies: the Very Best Treats to Bake and to Share is just one example of a helpful book to use as a guide when invited to your next cookie swap party or social gathering.

The Neelys' Celebration Cookbook: Down-home Meals for Every Occasion includes sample menus and recipes to make any meal a celebration.

We also carry several food magazines, including Bon Appetit, Cooking Light and Food Network Magazine. Pull up a chair and flip through a few to see their holiday selections or use the Internet to get the recipes, both past and present, from their website. While you are searching online, there are also some great recipe sharing websites, my personal favorite is  All Recipes.

Feel free to share your favorite recipes with us!
