Top Ten Tuesday: TV Shows and Cookbooks

Top Ten Tuesday
meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish -details

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

  1. I'm not really into cooking, meaning I can't cook for sh*t haha. But I recently started to bake easier recipes so I might just check out some of these books. Plus I love some humour!
    Such a creative list!

  2. You are a braver gal than me. I just couldn't with the True Blood and Walking Dead ones. LOL!

    But P&P Movie cookbook? I'm there.

  3. I might need to get a couple of these :)

  4. Great topic. There are a few of those that sound interesting to try.
