Could not resist....

This is my fourth cookbook this year (sigh)

I simply could not resist. Anybody has it? I think it will arrive today, or maybe Monday

I could use a book like that in my repertoire. I suspect I will be eating dinner in front of the TV many nights this fall, watching the news of the presidential race. This food is perfect.

Please report back!

Resistance is futile. And I've got you beat by three!

Hey, it's my theraphy too.....along with checking out the cookbooks at Tues.Morning and TJMAX for their great prices.....unless of course my husband and I have a date, going to our favorite Borders store, having a 30% or 40% discount coupon in hand.


Two recent gifts from him are the "GREAT COOKIES" by Carole Walter....absolutely love, love this book and the results have been wonderful, to mention only two right now, page 304 for the Janhagels and page 156 for the Classic Sugar Cookies. Hoping to  try another recipe tomorrow afternoon.


Also the other great book is "SIMPLY FRENCH" by Patricia Wells......Beets & Walnuts With Walnut Oil Dressing on page 69.......absolutely wonderful, this has become one of our recent favorites, making it often.


We're looking forward to the new B&N opening on the 30th. at our Avenues of Forsyth........hopefully some great specials there.


PS...found the really great Walnut Oil at TJMAX.

Oh,thanks for reminding me that I have that cookbook.I can not recommend any of the recipes as I had squirrelled it away and just now went on a search for it.That crime is worse than over-buying cookbooks!


I am anxiously waiting to see what you cook out it.It has some wonderful sounding recipes.

Culinary books are my weakness/obsession as well.  Since January 1 I have purchased 20 culinary books from Amazon.  But then I received two gift certs (birthday) and I am awaiting back surgery (unable to do much but read).  I absolutely cannot get enough cookery books - I will soon have 400.  Before I purchase I am really, really picky (aka anal) about which ones I choose.  Most are encyclopedic and challenging and resplendent with information.  If I am unable to cook (very sad) I may as well at least be READING about it!  :)

I have had a chronic health problem for many years now and sometimes I am unable to cook.Just want you to know that you can cook some marvelous things in your head,plus cookbook reading and coming here to CT it can still be magical.


Good thoughts for your back surgery.
