Okay Steve...how many do you have. I did check the last time I moved because I swore I wasn't doing that again. I have around 200. I am sure that number will be around 100 by the time I get them from my ex.

The Cake Bible
La Rousse Gastronomique
The Joy of Cooking
New York Times
Fannie Farmer Merrit
Mastering the Art of French Cooking I & II
Death by Chocolate
James Beard's Entertaining
Pennsylvania Dutch
Elenas California Kitchen

And 190 more!

But as a young chef I could not have been with out my Gastronomique!

This is the only book a chef needs. The rest are just tributes and copies

I don't own one cook book. I keep all my recipes on my computer and most I have memorized. I watch my mom as I was growing up and played in the kitchen often.

However I think anyone who is vegitarian has to pretty well be creative and cook for themselves since there are not very many places you can go to eat a healthy meal. You can only go to Subway, Quiznos, and some pizza shop so many times after that it gets boring.

When cooking use plenty of spices that will liven anything up.. LOL

I have more than I can count I love to collect them. My favorites are ones that come from Churchs or Fire Departments that are sold as fund raisers. You would be surprised at how many good dishes you can find. I think the last time I counted I have over 250 of them and I do use them.
