The Kindle version of Julia Turshen's recent book, Simply Julia (eG-friendly Amazon.com link), is currently $3.99 on Amazon.com and .ca

It's marked as a deal of the day, so I don't expect the price to last.  

 

I've been cooking from it quite a bit as it's the book of the month in a Facebook cookbook group that I belong to and I've been kind of surprised how much I've been enjoying it.  Every recipe has not been a hit but there are quite a few excellent ones, like the Kale & Mushroom Pot Pie that's topped with triangles of puff pastry that's both easy and fancy-looking.  The subtitle is, "110 Easy Recipes for Healthy Comfort Food," so it's not the book to take you on a culinary adventure but there are a lot of very easy, satisfying recipes.  And with respect to the word Healthy in the subtitle, Julia seems to be approaching it in a spirit of attraction (meals that make you feel healthy) rather than restriction.  It's not a diet book in any way.  It is a very personal book.  Lots of recipes are named for Julia's friends or family members and the header notes share their stories. Speaking of stories, there are a number of essays scattered through the book that I've enjoyed reading.   Amazon's "Look Inside" feature has enough of a sample to see if her writing and the style of the book appeals to you.  

For more about the book, the various interviews of her virtual book tour are available as episodes of her podcast, Keep Calm and Cook On

I'm waffling on The Nom Wah Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from 100 Years at New York City's Iconic Dim Sum Restaurant  (eG-friendly Amazon.com link).  I don't think I would cook from it but it looks like it would be a good read...at least until I can feel OK about actually going to a crowded dim sum place in person. 

 

The Kindle version is $3.99 on both Amazon.com and .ca

Thank you for this. I do very little cooking these days but a great deal of reading. I have a very healthy gift card for Amazon that I am happy to use.
