For our first theme, I want to hear about your first love. It wasn't necessarily the first cookbook you ever owned. It might not even have been the fourth or fifth. You know the one I'm talking about. It's the first cookbook you ever really fell in love with. It's the one that ignited the spark for all the other books to follow.
Even though I have over 200 cookbooks now, I will always remember the first one that started the obsession. Let's hear about yours!
In order to kick things off, I'm posting this theme early. Normally, the theme will be posted every other Monday. I'm tacking on an extra few days to get things rolling. Please add your link to the Mr. Linky (a permalink please--meaning to the post, not to the front page) by November 7.
