Foodie Gift Guide: Over 50 of The Best Cookbooks Written By and Recommended By Your Favorite Food Bloggers

I’m so excited to share with you this collection of incredible cookbooks. I asked my food blogger friends for some of their favorites, so not only am I giving you the list of the books on their shelves that they reach for when they aren’t busy creating their own recipes, but I’ve also got links and quotes from them to their favorite recipes and reasons why these books have become an integral part of their collection.

But before I share their recommendations, here are some of the best cookbooks on my shelf!
