I noticed a collection of Diana Henry's recipes is available for free.

 

 

Not quite sure what "collection" this refers to  but she's long had newspaper columns, written for various food publications and has tons on her website so there are a lot of her recipes available online - a search on EYB returns a list of over 2,000.  Many, but not all are available for free.

When a new month starts, I look to see what Amazon has on sale regarding e-cookbooks. I swear when I first looked this month, there were two measly pages of sale items. Today I looked and there are five pages of e-cookbooks on sale.

WTF?

There were a couple "junior/youth" cookbooks in the listings that I am not posting in case anyone has an interest in those.

 

"Better Homes and Gardens Quick Homemade: Fast, Fresh Meals in 30 Minutes" Kindle Edition $2.99US

"Southern Cooking for Company: More than 200 Southern Hospitality Secrets and Show-Off Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US

The last time I posted one of her e-cookbooks, it immediately went off-sale. I have no idea how long this will be on sale:

Slightly more expensive:
Irena Chalmers' "The Confident Cook: Basic Recipes and How to Build on Them (Picador Cookstr Classics)" Kindle Edition $3.99US

Season sounds interesting.  I'm going to look at it from the library first.

 

 

I have cooked a bit from Season and enjoyed it. It reminds me of @Suvir Saran's American Masala in that both feature many Western recipes, given a twist with Indian flavors.

This afternoon's finds:

 

What do chef's cook when they have late night cravings?

Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the long list of chefs and their gp-to dishes. Then scroll down to see some of the recipes.

 

An oldie from the last mid-century:
"The Constance Spry Cookery Book" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature then scroll down to see some of the recipes. Note the recipes seem to list both weights & measurements in the recipes. And some recipes don't follow what we consider a recipe format...they're more like a quick paragraph/description.

 

"The Complete Kitchen Garden: An Inspired Collection of Garden Designs & 100 Seasonal Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US
This is an odd recipe book. It discusses seasonal gardens and then has recipes using the ingredients from those gardens.

Quote

From the Amazon info page:
"Based on seasonal cycles, each chapter of this indispensible book provides a new way to look at the planning stages of starting a garden—with themes and designs such as the Salad Lover’s Garden, the Heirloom Maze Garden, the Children’s Garden, and the Organic Rotation Garden. 
More than 100 recipes—including a full range of soups, salads, main courses, and desserts, as well as condiments and garnishes—are featured here, all using the food grown in each specific garden."

 

Sort of Kindle Single-ish:
"The Sriracha Cookbook: 50 "Rooster Sauce" Recipes that Pack a Punch" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

 

"Stir, Sizzle, Bake: Recipes for Your Cast-Iron Skillet: A Cookbook" Kindle Edition $2.99US

And two non-food recipe books, one food-related and one not so much:

"The Little Book of Incredibly Useful Knots: 200 Practical Knots for Sailors, Climbers, Campers & Other Adventurers" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the illustrations in the book.
