The Year in Cookbooks: Celebrity Edition

Only 9 more days till Christmas—and plenty of time to finish up the shopping for the cookbook lover on your list. Clearly, I love a cookbook. My collection includes over 500 noshworthy cookbooks filling my library, living room, kitchen, and office. This week I wanted to share some of my favorite cookbooks from 2011 that have come from celebrities, celebrity chefs, or just celebrated food-people.
