This morning's sale item was on sale last year. I am posting it again in case someone didn't catch it the first time.

I am a US prime member and the price you see may vary.

Why am I even looking at this? My credit card alerted me via text message that someone tried to use it for a couple of unauthorized purchases (airline tickets, each just under $2000, both transactions declined). I've cancelled the card and am awaiting the new one, but until then, Amazon doesn't have a valid payment method for me!

Not funny about the credit card alarm, but think of the money you're saving!

I'm just glad such things exist, and that the technology worked for me. The real nuisance will come with the new card, when I need to update everywhere that uses it.

I was about to click but this seems to be the older edition, not the new one.

That's exactly what happened to me a while back.  Now I keep two credit cards active

in case one gets hijacked again.

Sadly, the Ice Cream book is no longer on sale.

Is this the ice cream cookbook you were looking for? It's still bargain-priced. It's puzzling to me that it's not the same price for you.

 

"Ample Hills Creamery: Secrets and Stories from Brooklyn's Favorite Ice Cream Shop" Kindle Edition $2.99US

Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

 

Other sale-priced cookbooks:

 

"Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook" Kindle Edition $1.99US

 

"The Moosewood Cookbook: 40th Anniversary Edition" Kindle Edition $2.99US

 

"From a Polish Country House Kitchen: 90 Recipes for the Ultimate Comfort Food" Kindle Edition $2.99US

 

"B. Smith Cooks Southern-Style" Kindle Edition $.99US

 

Two that are slightly above the level of the usual sale-priced cookbooks but may be of interest to some:

(the cookbook below has been on-sale before but it was short-lived)

"Fress: Bold, Fresh Flavours from a Jewish Kitchen" Kindle Edition $3.99US

 

"The Ginger & White Cookbook" Kindle Edition $3.99US

 

I am a US Prime member and the price you see may vary.

@Toliver  Yes, thank you, that is the one I was looking for.  On Amazon.com the Kindle edition is $15.69 but I am not a Prime member.  I am a Prime member of Amazon.ca but their Kindle edition shows at over $20.  So, no Ample Hills Creamery ice cream book for me.  But then, Christmas is coming........

 

Edited to add: an index of recipes doesn't show up either.  All I get is the intro.  Any good looking caramel types?

So the Kindle Deals for cookbooks went from one page to nine pages all of a sudden. The listings may be worth looking through as I didn't post everything that may be of interest (some listings were slightly higher than bargain-priced, too).

These first two are not bargain sale-priced but they're comparatively low next to their normal prices:

The post above was more expensive than usual for me. Good thing I'd already purchased Deep Run Roots (electronic and hard copy) some time ago, or it would have been even worse. I have lots of fun reading and cooking ahead of me!

Had to spring for Milk Street and the casserole. I'm southern and Methodist. Casseroles are in my blood.

 

(I am convinced it's part of the Methodist Discipline that one must own a 9 x 13 pan. I'm quite sure John Wesley said so.)

I think you will enjoy it.  It's a great read even if you don't click with the recipes. 

Like @Smithy, I have it in both paper and electronic versions, one of very few I've done that with.

 

Any recommendations? No chickpeas or green peppers, please.
