Is this someone you call and/or email often?  If so I would just wait until the first time you cook something from the book and then call or email to say “I made the XYZ from the cookbook you gave me and it was so delicious, thank you so much”.  If this is like a long lost aunt that you never speak to, just say something similar at the wedding.  Don’t send another Thank You note, it’s not necessary.

I would send another thank you note, and just graciously explain what happened and thank her for the cookbook!  😀  Congrats!

Is it someone you’re sort of close with?  Maybe you can give them a call after you try a recipe out of the cook book and let them know how it turned out and thank them in the context of the phone call.

Hmmhh… I would opt for a phone call or email then.  I’m sure she will understand.

I would still write a note, super easy…

 

Hi!  

I am just writing to thank you for the cookbook that you gave me as a shower gift after I realized that I didn’t thank you in my original note.  I am really grateful, and can’t wait to use it!  Love you and I’ll be thinking of you on the wedding day!

Love,

Oracle

I’m with hisbunny . She went to the effort to get you the cookbook. I think you should take 60 seconds and write her another note. Tell her which recipe you have tried(hint-try one before you send the note) and tell her you realized that you had forgotten to mention the cookbook in your previous thank you note.
