Here are some of my favorites.  Many can be found in my Amazon store. (There are so many great blogs and websites, they get their own page!)

Food Magazines

Read the post about my addiction attachment to food magazines.  I like all of these for different reasons.  Love the "why" behind the best cooking techniques?  Pick up Cook's Illustrated.  Want to learn about food in another culture and drool over amazing photos?  Check out Saveur.  I had to list Gourmet, even though it's no longer published - you can still find old issues around, and the stories and recipes are timeless.

Cookbooks

I mentioned in this post that I got rid of (gulp!) almost 100 cookbooks.  I held on to a couple, but have saved my favorite recipes from them electronically.  If you're still a collector, you can browse my favorite cookbooks here.  You'll notice a lot of Junior League cookbooks.  Those ALWAYS have winning recipes in them -- typically great for entertaining.  Bon appetit!
