FYI: Always being up for a new canning/preserving book, I clicked on the Hands-On Home. It came up $17.99 on Kindle. I, too, am an US Prime member. 

 

Dammit. I would have liked to have had that one.

It seemed to start off with a theme (eggs) and quickly devolved from there...

 

"Egg: Recipes" Kindle Edition $1.99US
Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the list of recipes.

 

Slightly more expensive...
Michael Ruhlman's "Egg: A Culinary Exploration of the World's Most Versatile Ingredient" Kindle Edition $3.99US
 

Slightly more expensive (by 4 cents-US)...
"Herbs: River Cottage Handbook No.10" Kindle Edition $3.03US
A how to grow herbs, cookbook with some recipes in the latter section of the cookbook.

 

So I fell down the Amazon rabbit hole locating other books in this series...

If there's an omission in the series, it's because those cookbooks weren't bargain-priced.

Had to spring for Egg when I saw it in my BookBub email this morning.

 

River Cottage books look good, but...no. Just ... no.

Thanks, @Toliver for sending these to us every day.  I thought this looked interesting so I read the reviews.   All of 5 reviewers received free copies of the book for review.  Near as I could tell, two of the five hadn't baked anything from the book and I wasn't sure about the third.

Thanks @ElsieD, I think it's important to do a little research on a cookbook before plunking your money down, so to speak, whether it's a measly buck or over $20 bucks.

Like you I also tend to scan the reviews especially if the cookbook doesn't have a full 5-Star average in its review.

I found The Making of a Chef: Mastering Heat at the Culinary Institute of America Kindle Edition - 1.99 . I was just thinking this morning that I'm almost done with Kitchen Confidential and was going to need new reading material for our (being hopeful here) vacation. I don't care to lug dead tree books around if I can avoid it.

When the book first came out they came out with a list of corrections and I wrote the corrections in my book.  I looked on their web site and couldn't find it.  Maybe you can contact them through their web site and ask them about it?  Meanwhile if you see something you want to make, ask me and I'll check to see if there was a correction for that recipe.


Edited by ElsieD added "I" wrote the corrections (log)

In their Holiday Bread book their recipes are in volume, and weight in both imperial and metric.  At least the recipes I've made.

That Bayless book is excellent and there's a whole thread devoted to it right over here.  He starts it off with recipes for "Four secret weapons I always have in my refrigerator:" Green Chile Adobo, Quick Red Chile Adobo, Roasted Garlic Mojo and Sweet-Sour Dark Chipotle Seasoning.  Each recipe is followed by a bulleted list of simple uses and a list of other recipes in the book that incorporate it. That initial chapter is worth the $2.99 in my opinion.  

 

Apologies if this has already been mentioned but the Kindle version of Maida Heatter's Happiness Is Baking: Cakes, Pies, Tarts, Muffins, Brownies, Cookies: Favorite Desserts from the Queen of Cake is currently priced at $3.99 on both Amazon.com and .ca.  This book came out last year right around the time the author passed away and is a "greatest-hits" compilation of recipes from her previous books.  As such, it may be of interest to folks who don't have those older books - the recipes appear exactly as in the originals and were not edited, even to include weights, which would have been useful or to add photographs.
