It is November 1, and the holiday season is officially upon us. For many, that means cooking, cooking and even more cooking. Depending on what holidays you celebrate and how many families you celebrate with, if you don’t have a nice variety of recipes to choose from, you could get bored, frustrated and find yourself not enjoying what should be the happiest time of the year. To prevent “holiday cooking burnout”, we’ve gathered up a few cookbooks that we feel could be a great help to you.
