    the Jose Andres veggie cookbook was originally posted here (on sale) back in November of last year.

    I missed that completely--so am grateful for the repost.

    I've been told by Amazon several times that I already own a book;-)

  2. 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.

  3. 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. 


  4. 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.

    From the writer of the Repertoire column for the San Francisco Chronicle, Jessica Battilana's "Repertoire: All the Recipes You Need" Kindle Edition $3.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)
    Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.
    The "Look Inside" feature kind of ends so I am not sure what the recipes might look like.


    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.

  6. 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."

  7. 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

  8. 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.
