I’d like to thank Martha Stewart for her book, HomeKeeping Handbook, The Essential Guide to Caring for Everything in Your Home. Between the covers of this book is a treasure trove of everything you could ever possibly want or need to know about caring for your home. She even teaches you how to wash dishes. I know over the years Martha Stewart has gotten a bad rap. I know she is very perfectionistic, and is a type-A to the extreme. But the information she offers is second to none.
I’d like to thank Irma Rombauer for putting together The Joy of Cooking. I never in a million thought I would have this cookbook or that I would have it as my go-to cookbook! She even shows you how to cut up a chicken.
