The title of this post should probably be, “The books I read (and all the ones I never got around to reading) in 2019.” I had lofty reading goals for the past year and usually do when each new year hits.

I’ll be the first to admit that I have a cookbook obsession. It’s hard not to add another one into the cart (and to my growing collection) when the images on every page are so stunning and the recipes make me want to run into the kitchen to become the next Food Network star.
