I've been keeping an eye on that one, hoping it will, eventually, go on sale.

 

It will. I have it. I don't remember if it was 1.99 or 2.99, but it wasn't more than that. I have a running list in my head of books I paid more than four dollars for because it is rare I haven't seen them on sale afterword. The one I have never seen on sale is "The Cake Bible". I would love to have that one in electronic format. But I'm hanging in there waiting. 😉

For some reason amazon assures me that I own this.  I have no recollection.

Can't believe the Ski House cookbook didn't tempt me, as much as I love winter meals. But the breakfast recipes didn't look that different from stuff I already do. I escaped this morning!

Two bargains, two slightly more than bargains...

 

Thai food...

Chef Kris Yenbamroong's "Night + Market: Delicious Thai Food to Facilitate Drinking and Fun-Having Amongst Friends" Kindle Edition $2.99US

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

 

"Food52 Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook (Food52 Works)" Kindle Edition $2.99US

Slightly more expensive than regular sale-priced cookbooks:

Slightly more expensive...

No list of recipes, but using the "Look Inside" feature, you can see the recipes start right away in the book.

 

After December's poor showing of sale-priced books (with Pepin being the exception) January should bring a new listing of sale-priced cookbooks. I will post any i find of interest in a few days.
