I bought these two books at the charity shop for £1.50, along with a Marc Jacobs S/S 2008 lookbook for a £1. The Cooking Clips book is just too cute, it looks very vintage and contains little pouches for me to put recipes i tear out of magazines, plus some notepaper at the back to write my own favourite recipes. What is your favourite/signature recipe? Mine is salmon, roast potatoes, honey roasted parsnips, caramelized onions and creamy leeks :)
P.S I can't believe I have gained over fifty followers already, plus more who often comment on my blog. Keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway! Love, Jazzabelle.
