BEB Readers: Most Popular Cookbooks and Kitchen Equipment

10 of the Most Popular Cookbooks and Kitchen Gadgets Among BEB Readers |

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been in multiple stores that already have their Christmas items on display, while Halloween items are sitting on clearance racks. Retail marketing continues to befuddle me, which is probably why I had no luck looking for Thanksgiving decorations two weeks before Thanksgiving last year. I can’t keep up! The holidays are hurtling towards us at a serious clip, and my mom has already asked me what I want for Christmas. Twice. I have no idea. I’m still trying to figure out if our baby is supposed to sleep in a crib, a bassinet, a pack n’ play, a rock n’ play or the dog bed (kidding!) come January. What I want most for Christmas is to not go into labor during a snow storm. That’s about it… I’m so easy to shop for, right?!

In the event that you’ve already started your shopping or have been putting together your own wish list, I thought it would be fun to run through the most popular cookbooks and kitchen gear among BEB readers thus far in 2014. I always love to see what other people are buying, and there have been some seriously awesome cookbooks released this year. One thing is for sure – you all love your ice cream and soup! My kind of people :)
