Craig & Pierre have found a new home. I wish that eBay was this easy! Maybe if I gave things away there? :laugh:

It is almost this easy, and the more I do it, the easier it gets! I especially like selling books on eBay because you can type in the title, author, or the ISBN, and you will automatically get a description of the book including a stock photo for your listing. Click here to see the book I have up for bid now, utilizing the automatic description plus a brief addition of my own. Of course free is good, but now you can buy or sell a cookbook on eBay, to benefit the eG Society. Take a look here. (You can buy or sell anything on eBay now, as a way to contribute.) ...End of shameless plug. :smile:

i am in the process of minimizing and have some cookbooks that i can no longer use.  if anyone would like them, please pm me with your snail mail address and i will drop them in the box.  right now i have 4 available:

Lancaster County Cookbook

My Own Cook Book - Gladys Taber

Peter Hunt's Cape Cod Cookbook

The Luchow's Cookbook

I would rather send them to a good home with one of you than drop them in the local library book sale.

Hi. could i have the Lancaster county cookbook and the cape cod cookbooks, please?

i'm having SUCH a good time with this thread! - so here comes Purge #3 of my cookbook shelf :smile:

i just want to say first of all that a couple of these books are on the big & heavy side, so i feel like i have to ask for postage to be reimbursed - as a guideline, most of the books i send out (media mail) cost about $2.00, so these heavier ones will probably be closer to $4 or $5. i've marked the heavier books with ***, fyi.

ok, that said - here are the books i have to offer this time:

cakes, tortes & gateaux of the world - aaron maree ***

le cordon bleu techniques & recipes - fruit desserts

leafy greens - mark bittman

solo suppers - joyce goldstein

lettuce in your kitchen - chris schlesinger

big flavors of the hot sun - chris schlesinger ***

delicious desserts - good cooking ***

thanks! - kerry

What is "Big Flavors of the Hot Sun" about, Kerry? I'll ask this question online in case others want to know too.

i should mention that this book has probably been claimed already, but:

the book's cover-blurb says 'hot recipes & cool tips from the spice zone' - foods with big flavors (spicy hot, or strongly flavored), primarily from areas of the world where the weather is hot & the sun is bright :smile:

sample items: chicken chipotle quesadillas; grilled lamb chops with mint-chili glaze; cuban style yucca; orange-chili marmalade.

      After batting about .500 with my previous approach to macarons, I came across Pierre Herme's base recipe online.  After two flawless batches of macarons, I've been re-energized to continue to work at mastering them.  Specifically, I want to try more of his recipes.  My conundrum is that he has, as far as I can tell, two macaron cookbooks and I don't know which one I should get.  I can't tell if one is just an updated version of the other or a reissue or what the differences really are.  I was hoping somebody had some insight.  I have searched online and haven't seen both books referenced in the same context or contrasted at all.
       
      This one appears to be older.

       
      And this one appears to be the newer of the two.

       
      Any insight would be helpful.
       
      Thanks,

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.
       
      Here's the link to her book at Eat Your Books.

      Thanks to @blue_dolphin, I was forced to buy this cookbook  and it was delivered today.  No matter how hard I try, I just don't super enjoy cookbooks on my Kindle.  Anyway, I'll most likely be alone on this thread due to low okra likability lol, but I'm an only child and I'm used to being alone 😁
       
       

       
       First on the list will be the Kimchi Okra from page 100--as suggested by @blue_dolphin.
       
      I'll be back on this thread soon
