  1. I also bought Cathy's book, blue dolphin! My timing was unfortunate, as it was right before Passover, so I'll have to wait a bit to make those bagels. I see several spreads and salads I look forward to enjoying. I may try her lox spread--my usual is to put cream cheese, supermarket lox, a little salt and pepper, lemon and granulated garlic in my food processor and it reminds me of the one sold at the (non-chain) bagel shop.

    RIP member Toliver

    Sad to learn of Tim’s passing. Like others, I blame, er, credit him for helping me buy so many e-cookbooks. I’ll think of him whenever one is opened. May his memory be a blessing.
  3. I received this as a gift, it is fun! Also, received Sicilia by Ben Tish. My niece gave it to several of us and we're all exciting about which recipes to try first.
  4. From an email this morning, Julia Turshen's Simply Julia: 100 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food $2.99 (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Kindle Edition, 2021. Doesn't strike me as a health-food cookbook, rather, I see that she adds ww flour to the banana chocolate chip cake, along with sour cream and oil (not butter--although there's butter and cream elsewhere). FYI, the index links don't work on my laptop--the book says it depends on what version of software you run, I'm updated, so ?) but the ToC links work.
  5. In the US, too. (And now in my Kindle library;-)
  6. I missed that completely--so am grateful for the repost. I've been told by Amazon several times that I already own a book;-)
  7. For me as well. And I also bought one for a friend who loves him and vegetables.
  8. Just got Mary's book for free, with a credit. Her avocado caprese salad sounds good, as does the Peking Tofu with Plum Sauce. Hardly a diet book, hello, potatoes au gratin, but I'll try these two in my efforts to shed the quarantine 10. Or 15.
  9. I snooze, I lose, the Pepin book is back to $19.99. Recipe looks promising, though.😋
  10. I'm wondering if the non-grippy silicon mat would allow me to shake the pan around my induction stovetop without fear of scratching it? Maybe not a cast iron pan, but a small skillet.
  11. Took a peek—the recipe list looked good. Turns out I had an expiring 50 cent credit! Plus a 10 cent credit when I bought it. Thanks😂
  12. Another from the $3.99 column: Rose Water and Orange Blossoms: Fresh & Classic Recipes from my Lebanese Kitchen Kindle Edition by Maureen Abood $3.99 I went for it. From Amazon: Maureen presents more than 100 irresistible recipes that will delight readers with their evocative flavors: Spiced Lamb Kofta Burgers, Avocado Tabbouleh in Little Gems, and Pomegranate Rose Sorbet. Weaved throughout are the stories of Maureen's Lebanese-American upbringing ... Ruhlman's How to Saute: Foolproof Techniques and Recipes for the Home Cook (How to... Book 3) Kindle Edition by Michael Ruhlman is $2.99.
  13. I know this is more than the usual bargain price, but Jubilee: Recipes from Two Centuries of African American Cooking: A Cookbook Kindle Edition by Toni Tipton-Martin is currently $4.99 on Amazon. Plus there's a $.50 credit. I found it following a Book Bub link to The Chilean Kitchen: 75 Seasonal Recipes for Stews, Breads, Salads, Cocktails, Desserts, and More Kindle Edition by Pilar Hernandez for $1.99. The "Look Inside" feature shows some summertime recipes and a list of Chilean pantry ingredients. The Amazon site lists items like Salmon Cancato / Salmon Stuffed with Sausage, Tomato, and Cheese, Spaghetti Squash Preserve and Dulce de Leche-Filled Sandwich Cookies.
  14. I have the Kindle version from a previous sale. I've marked a few recipes to make but so far, having only made the crispy potato pancakes (which are like my mom's). I can (I think) share some of the apps, mains, desserts: that caught my eye: Chicory Salad with Maple-Roasted Squash and Blue Cheese, Creamy Onion Tart with Olives, Seeded Rye Gougères, Twice-Baked Magic Soufflés ... Mains: Harissa and Honey Chicken Thighs, Spaghetti Niçoise, Halibut Kebabs, New Eggplant Parm, Panko-Parmigiano Chicken Cutlets, a few noodle and bean dishes and ... Sweets: Sour Cherry Hand Pies, Strawberry Sundaes Pavlova with Lime Curd and Blueberries, Coconut Cream Party Cake, S’Mores Tart, Creamsicle Affogato, Rice Pudding with Citrus and Pistachios, Maple-Blueberry Cornmeal Cake. Hope this helps.
  15. You all made me look on the back of my bookshelf. I have more I can share, but this one, from 1942 jumped out first. Some are from my mom, some I picked up along the way. I find them all fascinating. ETA: Those creatures looked more like crazy cats than bunnies to me, but the intro says, "an attractive garnish is pear halves, notched at the small end to make bunny ears and stuck with cloves to make their cunning faces."
  16. Late-night browsing turned up Sabada--Fresh, Sunny Flavors From My Israeli Kitchen: A Cookbook by Adeena Sussman for $1.99 (Kindle edition). I have a bunch of Ottolenghi and Solomonov books, but I was powerless to pass it up, great reviews, under $2 plus a 20 cent credit. Quick index read is showing many of the usual suspects, but also, new-to-me: Avocado-Za’atar Green Goddess Dressing, Root Vegetable and Medjool Date Stew, Halvah on Challah, Cardamom-Kissed Schug Yemenite Crumpet Pancakes
  17. Teach me to skip a day, it's now $10.99.
  18. I didn't need another cookbook, either. But thanks, I got this one! I always enjoyed Judy's posts. And I think her walnut sauce is the one we had years ago in Tuscany. We stayed for several nights at an agriturismo outside San Gimignano, and one afternoon, the owners went to pick up a friend in Florence, so nonna made dinner---her farfalle in walnut sauce was a first of its kind for us and clearly unforgettable.
  19. Classic Thermapen at $59 for a "very limited time" on their website.
  20. Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking Kindle Edition $2.99US. The email notification I got from Early Bird Books said the deal expires today, but I couldn't say whether or not Amazon holds to that. Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. My iPad is getting full, but I couldn't pass it up. Michael Solomov's Twice-Cooked Eggplant from Zahav is on the Amazon.com page.
  21. Thanks for this! I own some of her other books and have been hoping this one would go on sale.
  22. Speaking of $4.99 books, “Essentials of Italian Cooking” by Marcella Hazan Kindle Edition is available on Amazon. I’d loaned my hard copy to Can’t Remember Who, who never returned it, so have been waiting on this. Sorry if I missed a previous posting about it.
