Cookbooks Make Great Challenge Posts

Everyone loves a good cookbook. Even if you don't cook, I bet you can find someone who would appreciate knowing about the latest cooking trend. Perhaps it's time to gift someone a new cookbook to replace their tattered old favorite?

No matter the reason or the season, cookbooks make great challenge posts. Let's take a look.

Starting with the letter A you could feature:

The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook

Then move straight to:

Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book

Meandering through the alphabet is easy; Jamie Oliver is cute and also works for letter J.

Jamie's Dinner

If vegetarian fare is more your thing, why not feature Yotam Ottolenghi's 

Plenty More

Ever have trouble finding a post for Q? This is where creative license is at it's best! You could try

Quantum Wellness

or even

Quaker Oats 

If you can't find a cookbook that starts with the letter Z you'll have to improvise. Perhaps the letter Z is in the title somewhere?

Chocolate & Zucchini

See? Easy peasy lemon squeezy! I hope I've given you some tips that will help you craft the most amazing challenge posts yet.  Good luck, you can do it.

  1. Hi Pam .. love cookbooks - but I treasure my old ones ... good for reference purposes. I've done an A-Z series on Aspects of British Cookery .. which was fun ... many memories from my childhood ... great selection you've got here ... cheers Hilary

  2. Or any of HR Sinclaire's cookbooks! She has enough for half the alphabet.

  3. That was easy. I found some great recipes last year during the challenge.

  4. And if worse comes to worse, you can go to the used bookstore or library, and browse all their cookbooks. In one afternoon, you'll probably find every letter of the alphabet!

  5. Wonderful theme idea and post! Love the Chocolate & Zucchini creativity!
