Books & Cooks

"We may live without friends;
we may live without books;
but civilized man cannot live
without cooks."

Owen Meredith (1921)

Picture: one of my favorite teacups and a chicken cookie cutter from my childhood.


  1. Problem is, my kids don't like anything I cook anymore since I'm vegetarian and they aren't. No matter, I still cook and enjoy! Have a great week. Tammy

  2. But I couldn't live without friends or books too. Interesting to think about. Now if I lived in a garden I could just pull a carrot and nibble - no cooking. Laughing!

  3. That is the cutest little saying...never heard it before :)

    LOVE the picture!

  4. I have at least one of those books myself. Contessa is wonderful both to watch and read.

  5. I love Ina's cookbooks!
