  1. Stumbled across these this afternoon: "James Beard's American Cookery" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see lots of recipes from the cookbook. This may have been posted before. It's from Holland which explains some of the recipes. "Home Made in the Oven: Truly Easy, Comforting Recipes for Baking, Broiling, and Roasting" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the months-of-the-year recipe listings. "Bergdorf Goodman Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. Scroll all the way down to see a couple of the cocktail recipes. "The Culinary Bro-Down Cookbook" Kindle Edition $2.99US Slightly more expensive than usual... "Rachael Ray's Look + Cook: 100 Can't Miss Main Courses in Pictures, Plus 125 All New Recipes: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $4.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see lots of recipes from the cookbook. There's a recipe for "Midwinter Minestrone" from the cookbook on this cookbook's Amazon email page. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    Dinner 2020

    You could always bake the roux in the oven. Just a suggestion...
  3. Perhaps they have an office party coming up and want you to bake something for it.
  4. From this morning's BookBub email: "Sara Foster's Southern Kitchen: Soulful, Traditional, Seasonal: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the first chapter's list of recipes. Scroll further down to see recipes. There is also a rather large excerpt from the cookbook on this book's Amazon Info page, including recipes. There were a lot of other bargain-priced cookbooks on sale (Ina Garten, Bobby Flay, etc) but they've all been previously posted. You can find a lot of them listed under the heading "Customers who bought this book also bought these" section of the above-listed Amazon cookbook's info page. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may may vary.
  5. Thanks @ElsieD, I think it's important to do a little research on a cookbook before plunking your money down, so to speak, whether it's a measly buck or over $20 bucks. Like you I also tend to scan the reviews especially if the cookbook doesn't have a full 5-Star average in its review.
  6. The Souplantation chain in San Diego/Southern California (which was a salad & soup buffet) just decided to close permanently. They couldn't figure out how to still have a self-serve buffet in the time of the pandemic (is it just me or hasn't anyone ever been to Panda Express? It's set up as a buffet but the employees dish out the food, not the customers). My brother and his family had multiple gift cards to the Souplantation (they loved the restaurant) and now the gift cards are worthless, of course. I was able to warn my sister-in-law to use up her Pier 1 gift cards back when there were the initial rumblings in the financial sections of the newspaper/media that they weren't doing well financially. I hope she was able to use all of them. So, yes, Kim I share your gift card pain.
  7. Just one today from my BookBub email: "The Easy Baked Donut Cookbook: 60 Sweet and Savory Recipes for Your Oven and Mini Donut Maker" Kindle Edition $0.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes (in a rather small typeface). I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  8. It started with a BookBub email, yada, yada, yada... From Julia Moskin & Kim Severson, foor writers from the NY Times, "CookFight: 2 Cooks, 12 Challenges, 125 Recipes, an Epic Battle for Kitchen Dominance" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes and scroll down to see some recipes. From Frank Bruni & Jennifer Steinhauer "A Meatloaf in Every Oven: Two Chatty Cooks, One Iconic Dish and Dozens of Recipes - from Mom's to Mario Batali's" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. "Handheld Pies: Dozens of Pint-Size Sweets and Savories" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. "Tokyo Cult Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US Slightly more expensive... From the proprietors of the renowned Brooklyn shop and cafe,"The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book: Uncommon Recipes from the Celebrated Brooklyn Pie Shop" Kindle Edition $3.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime memner and the price you see may vary.
  9. It seemed to start off with a theme (eggs) and quickly devolved from there... "Egg: Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. Slightly more expensive... Michael Ruhlman's "Egg: A Culinary Exploration of the World's Most Versatile Ingredient" Kindle Edition $3.99US Slightly more expensive (by 4 cents-US)... "Herbs: River Cottage Handbook No.10" Kindle Edition $3.03US A how to grow herbs, cookbook with some recipes in the latter section of the cookbook. So I fell down the Amazon rabbit hole locating other books in this series... If there's an omission in the series, it's because those cookbooks weren't bargain-priced. "Preserves: River Cottage Handbook No.2" Kindle Edition $3.03US "Veg Patch: River Cottage Handbook No.4" Kindle Edition $3.03US "Edible Seashore: River Cottage Handbook No.5" Kindle Edition $3.03US "Hedgerow: River Cottage Handbook No.7 1st Edition" Kindle Edition $3.03 US "Fruit: River Cottage Handbook No.9" Kindle Edition $3.03 "Chicken & Eggs: River Cottage Handbook No.11" Kindle Edition $3.03US Slightly more expensive... "Pigs & Pork: River Cottage Handbook No.14" Kindle Edition $3.99US "Game: River Cottage Handbook No.15" Kindle Edition $3.03US "Cheese & Dairy: River Cottage Handbook No.16" Kindle Edition $3.03US I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  10. And where is the butter? The last time I went to the Walmart grocery store, there butter section was completely empty...no butter, no margarine. Maybe it's not the hoarders to blame but perhaps Walmart sucks when it comes to restocking and obtaining supplies.
  11. From this morning's BookBub email...I stumbled across the others... "Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream Book" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. Not just ice cream recipes but topping recipes, as well. Slightly more expensive (by 4 cents US)... From the London Italian eatery Bocca di Lupo, Jacob Kenedy's "Bocca: Cookbook" Kindle Edition $3.03US Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see some of the recipes. Note recipes measurements use weight. And for those who missed it when it was first listed 2 years ago and sporadically popping up on sale since then, this is on sale again: "Momofuku Milk Bar: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US I am a US Prime Member and the price you see may vary.
  12. From my BookBub eail this morning...an odd duck of a cookbook, so to speak: "The Hands-On Home: A Seasonal Guide to Cooking, Preserving & Natural Homekeeping" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature and scroll down to see the list of recipes. Note that it's broken up into seasons with food recipes, preserving/canning recipes, and recipes for your own DIY household cleaning products. Very well reviewed. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary. Edited to add: BookBub told me this was on sale last week but by the time I followed their link, it was no longer on sale. Now it's on sale again! Not a cookbook but a must-read for anyone who wants to become a chef... Michael Ruhlman's "The Making of a Chef: Mastering Heat at the Culinary Institute of America" Kindle Edition $1.99US
  13. She totally rocks! Thanks for posting this.
  14. Snacking on Werther's Caramel Popcorn (click). It surprised me...a lot of caramel popcorn just tastes like the caramel. With this, however, I can taste the popcorn, aside from the caramel, which I thought was unusual but good. And yes, the caramel tastes EXACTLY like the Werther's Caramel candies. Two thumbs up.
  15. Can you please explain the notch in the scissor blades? I have a pair of kitchen shears with a similar notch and I curse it every time I go to cut something in the kitchen.
