    Popeyes

    Reviving this surprisingly ancient discussion to post this tongue-in-cheek offering from Popeyes: "Popeyes launches 'Emotional Support Chicken' carrier at Philadelphia airport"

    Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    Thanks for posting this. I had to laugh, though, when I saw the date it was supposedly posted. I know some of us have been around these boards for some time, but I didn't think it was that long ago!
  3. Host's note: By popular demand, and in light of the ephemeral nature and prevalence of e-book (mostly Kindle) deals, this topic has been split from the Current sales, deals, and bargains (Part 2) topic. All deals that are not electronic-format books should go there, not here. I am surprised at how quickly the cheap prices/deals on Kindle cookbooks come and go. That being said...I am a US Prime member so the price you see may vary. M. F. K. Fisher's "Consider the Oyster" Kindle Edition $2.51US Chef Yoshio Saito "Okonomiyaki: Japanese Comfort Food" Kindle Edition $3.99US Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi's "Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir" Kindle Edition $1.99US
  4. Found this afternoon...slightly more expensive than the usual sale-priced books I post: Leela Punyaratabandhu's "Bangkok: Recipes and Stories from the Heart of Thailand" Kindle Edition $3.99US I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  5. One found this morning thanks to my BookBub email...the other found down a rabbit hole: "The Ski House Cookbook: Warm Winter Dishes for Cold Weather Fun" Kindle Edition $1.99US No list of recipes but if you use the "Look Inside" feature, you can scroll down to see a listing of the "Breakfast" recipes. "Baked Occasions: Desserts for Leisure Activities, Holidays, and Informal Celebrations" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  6. Host's note: this topic grew too large for our servers to handle efficiently, so it has been split into more manageable segments. The previous segment is here. Today I was surfing on eGullet and snacking on Keebler Town House Focaccia Tuscan Cheese crackers (leftover from a Super Bowl party). They're a thick cracker and have a nice subtle flavor. The bad thing is that they made me wish I had some cheese or dip to go with them. DOH! [/Homer Simpson]
  7. Haven't found a digital version. Found the book (click) as a normal book. Have you tried contacting the publishers to see if they have a digital version?
  8. I've been keeping an eye on that one, hoping it will, eventually, go on sale.
  9. One found this afternoon: She used to be known as the Cake-Mix Doctor. She's branching out... Anne Byrn's "American Cake: From Colonial Gingerbread to Classic Layer, the Stories and Recipes Behind More Than 125 of Our Best-Loved Cakes" Kindle Edition $1.99US It's the #1 Best Seller in Amazon's Gastronomy History, which I didn't even know was a category. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    KFC 2012–

    I swear I saw a TV commercial this weekend for new KFC chicken pot pies at KFC. Has anyone tried them? Are they a regular menu item or are they a special "limited time only" item?

    Food recalls

    "Del Monte recalls canned corn in 25 states, 12 nations, due to botulism risk" The article lists states where it was sold and which product "Best if used by" dates may be impacted by the recall.

    KFC 2012–

    @Shelby I found a similar article with a web site: kfcfirelogs.com When I clicked on a link to buy I got sent to a PayPal interface so I stopped my interaction right then and there. I didn't get far enough to see if they still had any in stock. It's worth a shot, if you're interested.
  13. One from this morning that, I believe, has been on sale before. "At Home with Magnolia: Classic American Recipes from the Founder of Magnolia Bakery" Kindle Edition $2.99US Not just baked goods...this includes other types of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    Food recalls

  15. One from this afternoon: 2013 Finalist, James Beard Foundation Award, Baking & Dessert, Valerie Gordon's "Sweet" Kindle Edition $2.51US No list of recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

    Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    My apologies. It looked like powdered sugar. Thanks for the correction.

    Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    When I make my Butterball cookies (no turkey is involved...just a pound of butter!), I roll them in powdered sugar and let them sit overnight. The butter also changes this cookie and makes the powdered sugar look sort of patchy. So I just roll them one more time in powdered sugar. and then they're pretty again.

    Christmas Cookies Redux

    These are all similar to the "Butterball Cookies" recipe i posted in RecipeGullet (click). Walnuts are used instead of pecans (my mom, having grown up in Kansas used black walnuts in anything she could).
  19. One found this afternoon: With a foreward by Alice Medrich, Amy's Guittard's "Guittard Chocolate Cookbook: Decadent Recipes from San Francisco's Premium Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Company" Kindle Edition $1.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

  20. It's a new month but surprisingly there aren't a lot of new cookbooks on sale on Amazon. A lot of last month's sale-price cookbooks are still hanging around. Amy Kimoto-Kahn's "Simply Ramen (Simply ...)" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. The following two cookbooks have been previously on sale...reposting: "Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul" in the Kitchen Kindle Edition $2.99US "Essential Pépin: More Than 700 All-Time Favorites from My Life in Food" Kindle Edition with Audio/Video $2.99US This is supposed to have video/audio supplements, like the print-version. And a new-ish Pépin: Jacques Pépin's "A Grandfather's Lessons: In the Kitchen with Shorey" Kindle Edition $2.99US A how-to aimed at kids, includes recipes. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  21. "The first American woman to be awarded three Michelin stars"
  22. The last of the month's offerings...new cookbooks are likely to begin appearing tomorrow with the advent of December. A New York Times "Notable Book", Aglaia Kremezi's "The Foods of the Greek Islands: Cooking and Culture at the Crossroads of the Mediterranean" Kindle Edition $2.99US No list of recipes that I could see. The book does contain recipes plus info on the islands and the culture. Blogger and author Mimi Thorisson's "French Country Cooking: Meals and Moments from a Village in the Vineyards" Kindle Edition $2.99US No list of recipes. Brit Giuseppe Mascoli's "Franco Manca, Artisan Pizza to Make Perfectly at Home" Kindle Edition $.99US No list of recipes. Mary Lou Heiss's "The Story of Tea: A Cultural History and Drinking Guide" Kindle Edition $1.99US No recipes...a sort of historical guide all about tea. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
  23. I like the thrift store price of $4.99 better than what Amazon priced it.
  24. It seems "Mad Hungry" and "Project Smoke" have also had price increases. And I just don't understand the all-too-brief time on sale. My apologies to all. They were bargain-priced when I originally posted them.
  25. The first two postings have been on sale before (1 year ago and two years ago, respectively): Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours" Kindle Edition $2.99US IMHO, it's worth buying just for the "World Peace" cookie recipe. Rose Levy Beranbaum's "The Baking Bible" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. I take full credit for this one being on sale...I just looked at it when it was full-priced and now it's on sale...Go Mojo! Lucinda Scala Quinn's "Mad Hungry Family: 120 Essential Recipes to Feed the Whole Crew" Kindle Edition $2.51US No main list of recipes but the chapters do have their own recipe lists. Use the Look Inside" feature to see this. Steven Raichlen's "Project Smoke: Seven Steps to Smoked Food Nirvana, Plus 100 Irresistible Recipes from Classic (Slam-Dunk Brisket) to Adventurous (Smoked Bacon-Bourbon Apple Crisp)" Kindle Edition $1.99US Named one of the Best Cookbooks of the Year by Food & Wine, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today, The Washington Post, and more, Uri Scheft's "Breaking Breads: A New World of Israeli Baking--Flatbreads, Stuffed Breads, Challahs, Cookies, and the Legendary Chocolate Babka" Kindle Edition $2.99US Use the Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. Masterchef winner Thomasina Miers's "Mexican Food Made Simple" Kindle Edition $.99US Use the Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes. British Mexican food? Thomasina Miers's "Wahaca - Mexican Food at Home" Kindle Edition $.99US Use the "Look Inside" feature to the list of recipes. Again, I credit my mojo for this next one being reduced-price...not quite bargain-priced but just above: Scott Conant's "The Scarpetta Cookbook: 125 Recipes from the Acclaimed Restaurant" Kindle Edition $3.99US There are three downloadable recipes from the book on this cookbook's Amazon info page. No list of recipes but by using the "Look Inside" feature and scrolling down, you can see a number of recipes from the cookbook. I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.
