Rachelle suggests these cookbooks from the library...

The Chopped Cookbook by Food Network
The fabulous little cookbook shows you have to cook up delicious meals using ingredients that are already in your refrigerator.

The cookbook celebrates baking as it happens in the real world where cakes collapse, frosting gets smeared and everything tastes delicious. 

Sweet:  Our Best Cupcakes, Candy, and More by the editors of Food Network Magazine
The editors of Food Network Magazine picked their all-time favorite treats and combined them into one must have cookbook.
