I bought Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything."

Thank you for your entry. How is it? Does his slightly caustic personality come through? Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I found a steal on my local library booksale table ~ a 1990 copy of; "Rose's Christmas Cookies", by Rose Levy Beranbaum (author of The Cake Bible). Combines two of my favorite things, a bargain (paid $1.00 for it) and a cookbook about cookies!!!

Just bought My Napethe by Romney Steele and I can't get enough of it (It's for me). Such a beautiful book!

Hi Deb,
What a great find! One of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes is stained glass cookies from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I got at a book fair. I wonder what you'll find in RLB's book.

Hi Megan,

Great entry. That is one gorgeous book. Have you ever been to Napenthe? She has a blog too.

The next time I'm anywhere in the vicinity, I'm going!

I think it was "Jamie's Italy", which was over a year ago. I guess I don't buy many cookbooks anymore. I have too much fun pilfering blog recipes.

Sue said...

Hi Rach,
That sounds good. He's been all over the place promoting his new one, Jamie's Food revolution, which looks awesome.

Pilfering is what blog recipes are for. MAKING them, of course, not posting them.

I found a real bargain yesterday at B & N! All of $ 7.98 for 100 GREAT BREADS, Paul Hollywood. Really looking forward to trying out some of those delicious looking recipes!
