I think I posted this cookbook a few pages ago (Amazon says I have already purchased it).

I always keep an eye on the Amazon cookbook pages since, like Ina Garten, Lidia's books are rarely discounted. If the price gets close to sale-price territory I will pay the few extra dollars and buy it. That's how I got Emeril's "Delmonico" cookbook a while ago...not sale-priced but cheaper than usual...so the deal was done.

 

Edited to add a cookbook that was posted quite some time ago but will post it again since it's the 40th anniversary edition and it's on sale:

 

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

No list of recipes but if you use the "Look Inside" feature you can see a listing of recipes in the first chapter.

I don't normally post "healthy" cookbooks, but because it's a restaurant of note, I am posting it.

Nope, not for me.  I clicked on the hardback copy instead.

More finds from this afternoon:

 

Martha Stewart's current PBS series is "Martha Stewart's Cooking School". Instead of publishing one cookbook for the series containing all of the season's recipes, she's publishing cookbooks for each lesson covered in the series. There are currently multiple "Cooking Lessons" ecookbooks in the Kindle store but most are a little bit out of "sale-price" range and won't be posted by me until they come down in price.

Here's one that is a little more expensive than my usual listings (the other "Cooking Lessons" ecookbooks are priced higher):

 

"Stocks & Soups: Martha Stewart's Cooking School, Lesson 1: Lessons and Recipes for the Home Cook" Kindle Edition with Audio/Video $3.99US

From the Amazon info page for this ecookbook:
"Due to large size of this book, please connect your device to WiFi to download.
Kindle Edition with Audio/Video: Audio/Video content is available on Fire tablets (except Kindle Fire 1st Generation) and iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices."

 

"The Hard Times Kitchen: Homestyle Recipes for a Small Budget" Kindle Edition $2.99US
Kindle Single-ish...just over 100 pages long. Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes and scroll down to see a couple of recipes.

 

"Simple Thai Food: Classic Recipes from the Thai Home Kitchen" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

 

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

 

edited to add: Note that the Martha Stewart Cooking Lessons cookbooks are quite lengthy...about 500 pages, and they do cover a lot of basic cooking territory which more advanced readers/cooks might find too pedestrian.

Well, this is embarrassing but not unheard-of in this crowd: I see I bought the Simple Thai Food book in 2015.

I wouldgave purchased the Thai book but only saw it this morning and the price has gone back up.

 

Edited to add: I just looked through my Kindle and see that I have it.  I really need to consult my Kindle more often.

Thanks.  Ethiopia is a good read.  Jeff Koehler is co-author, and I've enjoyed several of his books on Spain, Morocco, and paella.

David Rosengarten!?!?  Is he still alive?  Last I heard of him was when he closed down his subscription email letter right after I renewed my subscription.  Sorry, I can't support this by buying his books.

Books live on whether their authors do or do not.

This cookbook was originally published in 2009. Ten years after the fact I bought it because buying it at a reduced sale price supports my endeavors to not spend a lot of money on cookbooks. That it supports Mr. Rosengarten was not a determining factor in my decision to make this purchase.
