I clicked on "buy it now" only to be told that I already had.😊

It was previously on sale last August. You probably picked it up back then.

Two odd fellows this evening:

 

This cookbook has been on sale before - I am reposting due to the Top Chef connection -

Former Top Chef contestant "Kristen Kish Cooking: Recipes and Techniques" Kindle Edition $1.99US

 

For this next one, a little background...I fell down a Google/Pinterest rabbit hole trying to find recipes for Chef Paul Prudhomme's spice mixes. In his later cookbooks his recipes call for some of his Magic Seasoning mixes, without telling you what the ingredients/spices were. I didn't want to invest time or money in trying to find/buy all of his spice blends. Turns out that in his earlier cookbooks he posted the recipes for his seasoning mixes with each recipe! 

This cookbook is one of the early ones that contain the seasoning recipes. You can use the "Look Inside" feature to see this in a couple of the recipes in the cookbook.

No brickbats please...I'm forewarning you it's not really an "on-sale" cookbook as you will see from the price. But knowing the recipes for his spice mixes might make it worth it.

"Chef Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Tastes: Exciting Flavors from the State that Cooks" Kindle Edition $6.99US

From this morning's BookBub email:

 

 

Rick Bayless' "Mexican Everyday" Kindle Edition $2.99US

Yes!...if you use the "Look Inside" feature you can see the list of recipes in the cookbook.

 

This is one of Rick's other cookbooks that has been on sale before and is on sale again:

Rick Bayless' "Authentic Mexican: Regional Cooking from the Heart of Mexico" Kindle Edition $2.99US

 

This has been on sale in the past. I am reposting it in case anyone missed it the first time:

Winner, IACP Awards 2013- Baking: Savory or Sweet
Winner, James Beard Foundation Award 2013 -Baking and Dessert

Ken Forkish's "Flour Water Salt Yeast: The Fundamentals of Artisan Bread and Pizza" Kindle Edition $2.99US

 

This one is new to this on-sale discussion:

 

Ali Maffucci's "Inspiralize Everything: An Apples-to-Zucchini Encyclopedia of Spiralizing" Kindle Edition $1.99US

Generally well reviewed, there is one less enthusiastic review that says some of the recipes are "off".

The author has other Spiralize-themed cookbooks (that are not currently on sale) which you can view on her Amazon author's page.

Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes which were completely alien to me. ;) Well reviewed by Doctor Who fans.

There is a list of recipes, plus you can scroll down and view a few of the recipes from the cookbook.

I found out something the other day which can sometimes be useful.  It doesn't always work, but sometimes it does.  When you click on a book link and it takes you to the amazon link, and you click on the "look inside" button, you often don't get an index.  It you toggle to the hard copy version and then click on "look inside" you sometimes get a different preview which includes the index.  It didn't work today for The Chinese Takeout Cookbook but it has worked for some others.

I have a hard copy of Maya Angelou's book. It's delightful to read. At $2.99 the Kindle version is a bargain.

Get the Maya Angelou book. The recipes are average. The stories are priceless, and well worth many times the $2.99. The story that goes with the caramel cake is my very favorite.

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 may yet buy the Maya Angelou book, just so I can have it when traveling, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I did, however, buy the Irish Pub Cookbook (just in time!) because it looks like it has some recipes I'll enjoy. That, in turn, led me to

 

Real Irish Food: 150 Classic Recipes from the Old Country for $1.99. The Amazon writeup alone was irresistable.

I purchased the Kindle version the other say.  I remembered that when the book first came out, I had wanted to buy it but didn't want to spend the money.  I was happy to pay $1.99 for it.  I can't say I like Kindle books much though.  I'd rather have hard copies.  But then, I only know how to use Kindke by flipping over one page at a time.   There must be an instruction book called "How to use your Kindle for Dummies" but I haven't been able to find it.😳
