  1. These arrived in my Taste email: "Wolfgang Puck Cookbook: Recipes from Spago, Chinois, and Points East and West" Kindle Edition $1.99US No list of recipes but you can see some of them by using the "Look Inside" feature and scrolling down. "The Second Avenue Deli Cookbook: Recipes and Memories from Abe Lebewohl's Legendary Kitchen" Kindle Edition $2.99US This has been on sale before...but I am posting it in case someone missed it first time 'round... Alexandra Stafford's "Bread Toast Crumbs: Recipes for No-Knead Loaves & Meals to Savor Every Slice" Kindle Edition $2.99US I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  2. Well, I am judging a book by its proverbial cover. Those tomatoes do not look like any other tomato in my local grocery stores. All I see in my local grocery stores are smooth-skinned red round (tasteless) tomatoes. That picture shows tomatoes with "pleats" which are more akin to heirloom tomatoes or tomatoes I can buy at my local farmer's market. They certainly don't look like mass-produced tomatoes which is why I guessed what I did.
  3. From my BookBub email this morning: A little pricier that what I normally post... Anthony Bourdain's "Appetites: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $3.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  4. They look like heirloom tomatoes. My local grocery store will have a special case for their heirloom tomatoes (at a special high price, too! ). They sell their usual generic every-tomato-looks-the-same kind, as well. But I prefer the heirloom or "ugly" tomatoes. Great find!

    Starkist makes tuna in pouches with different flavorings. Most US supermarkets should carry some of the flavors (click). On that web page, click on the blue bars titled "Tuna Creations Bold" & "Tuna Creations" to see the different flavors. I like the Hickory smoked tuna. It really changes up the usual tuna casserole for the better.

    Bastard condiments?

    I think because they started with "Mayochup" that they're trying to make it a "thing" by naming all their other bastardized condiments that they come up with a similar sounding name.
  7. I think this may have been on sale before...but not sure: Travis Lett's "Gjelina: Cooking from Venice, California" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the long list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    Kim, There's an egg called for in the recipe. Maybe add another egg for binder? Also, maybe 1 cup of bread crumbs is too much. What if you scaled that back? You would have a less tender meatloaf and perhaps it wouldn't be so inclined to fall apart. And finally, what is the fat content of your ground beef? Too much fat would make for a "looser" meatloaf. Good luck!

  11. You can hardly walk the halls of Amazon's sale-priced cookbooks currently without tripping over Ireland-related cookbooks. I am posting these first two because of their low prices. According to her Amazon author's page, Margaret M. Johnson seems to write quite a bit about Irish food and said variations. Use the "Look Inside" feature with both books to see the list of recipes: "The Irish Pub Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.20US "Irish Puddings, Tarts, Crumbles, and Fools: 80 Glorious Desserts" Kindle Edition $1.20US Not Irish-related but England-related: Royal cake maker Fiona Cairns' "Seasonal Baking: Celebrating the Baking Year With Classic Cakes, Cupcakes, Biscuits and Delicious Treats" Kindle Edition $1.99US No list of recipes, but use the "Look Inside" feature to see some of the recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  12. Currently snacking on Piller's Old Forest Salami Whips (click). Last year, my sister-in-law bought them at Cost Plus World Market for Christmas stocking-stuffers. They have a nice BBQ-ey smokey taste to them. I've found them on Amazon but they're quite a bit more expensive there.
  13. You are also supposed to push the food up the sides of the wok where it's a (little) cooler so it doesn't overcook. Doing this also makes room in the hot part of the wok to make/thicken your sauce.
  14. These sale-priced cookbook titles arrived in my email: Maya Angelou's "Hallelujah!

"The Casserole Queens Cookbook: Put Some Lovin' in Your Oven with 100 Easy One-Dish Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.
