Winnie the Pooh Cookbooks




P1020934P1020938P1020948P1020944P1020946P1020949The love I have for these two little cookbooks, you have no idea. I don’t know which one I adore more, ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’s Teatime Cookbook’ or ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’s Picnic Cookbook’. I want you all to know that I have both of them permanently out in my cookbook collection that I keep right inside my kitchen, which is the place I keep my most favoritest cookbooks. And I actually cook from them! The Pecan Chicken Fingers recipe up above? I make that one all the time! (Can you make it out? I hope so, because I’m not retyping it. TOO TIRED. You can see it right? Ditto the apple bran muffins.)

(I have an entire bookcase full of cookbooks in another room. I read my cookbooks like novels. And I re-read them over and over. Haven’t made even 1/16 of what’s in them but I love each and every one of them.)

Can you make out the Banana Malt drink? You can right? I am so lame for not typing these out for you, but it’s not that kind of day. I haven’t tried that one yet, but doesn’t it sound so delightful?

Believe me when I say all of the recipes ARE delightful and are things you would actually want to make, even if you’re not sailing off to a picnic. They’re just cute little homey recipes you’d want to make just because they’re awesome, and you want to make something cozy and warm and fun.

If I were forced to sell all but ten cookbooks, these would take up 2 spots on the list. Well, I’d consider them more as one book because they’re mini sized. So I’d give them 1 spot in my Top 10. If I had to pick between them, I’d choose the ‘Picnic’ book. (And now I think I will soon have to write a ‘Melissa’s Top 10 Cookbook list’…)

  1. I didn't know there were Winnie the Pooh cookbooks! My daughter's blankets/bags/everything theme is Winnie the Pooh :)

    I am now very tempted to get those recipe books!

    Please do write your Top 10 Cookbook list! I would love to see what you prefer! I only have a few cookbooks but mostly for baby/children's food.

    1. I promise, sometime I will definitely write a post like that! It's just a matter of time anyway, before this blog turns into all food, all cookbooks, tee hee :)

    1. It's a plan! Spoiler alert: I like the British food writers. :)

    2. There's a choc chip cookie recipe in the picnic book which uses M & M's that I'm going to be making for Julia's school this week!

  6. These are so sweet! I need to get more cookbooks for the girls. I've had to thin out my own cookbooks a lot over the years. There were some, I admit, I liked to look at but had never actually cooked from.

  7. Now see, I am terrified of cookbooks, but winnie the pooh makes it a tiny bit less terrifying. I think I just need to have a friend like you that I can sit in her kitchen and watch her use a cookbook and see that it isn't so scary after all. :) Too bad I live too far from you!

    1. I'll tell you a wee secret, sweet Vanessa: I'm really not a very confident cook. And I would rather go poof into thin air rather make up my own recipe or be creative with a cooking technique. That's why I like baking! Rules. Measuring. Easy to follow. I like it so much better than any other kind of cooking!

      Although just the other day I made a recipe (Parkin, which is basically gingerbread-only-not-as-good, it's more dense and chewy than regular gingerbread cake, and why was I even making something gingerbready in the summer????), and I had to toss most of it out, b/c everyone refused to eat it after the first day :)

      I would happily send you a care package of treats, but I think they would be stale or soggy by the time they got there :)
