While January is the time of resolutions, we are pretty much always resolving to be better about cooking. From easy recipes to grocery hacks, we are forever looking for ways to build a better (and more efficient) meal. Sometimes, that can mean buying the right tools, but really committing to a new cooking routine requires some inspiration when it comes to the food as well.
A successful food resolution, whether its packing your lunch every day, saving on dinners out, or getting more comfortable in the kitchen, requires planning. And this is where one of our favorite resources come in: a good book (or notebook). And not just any old one: the kind that you can keep coming back to week after week for new meals, tips, and tricks.
Ahead, 11 cookbooks and meal planners that not only give you recipes, they give you guidance and help you organize your life around whatever your resolution maybe. And, most importantly, it will get you cooking in January – and all year long.
