The Bonne Femme Cookbook // #BooksForCooks

While we all may want to receive a plane ticket to Paris in our stocking, or at least some fresh Laduree macarons, Wini Moranville’s The Bonne Femme Cookbook is a bit easier to give, and lighter on the wallet. Four-color and full of sweet illustrations and authentic recipes, it is the ultimate cookbook to gift. Also helps to re-acclimate your “semester abroad” son or daughter who just returned from Normandy…!

Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook // #BooksForCooks

We have two favorite things about Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook. First, if you know anyone who owns a crock pot or slow cooker (say, anyone who got married within the last ten years), chances are they are letting it collect dust somewhere and could use some flavorful recipes—like Twice-Crocked Stuffed Potatoes with Cheddar and Chives and Thai Pork with Peanut sauce—as inspiration to dig it out of the back of their cupboard.

And if your recipient doesn’t already own a slow cooker? Well then this book makes an even more perfect gift when paired with that shiny new Hamilton Beach!
