This week they had a lot of new great books…The Family Meal, The Meatball Shop, Momofuko Milk Bar, Food 52, Cook Like a Rock Star, Alton Browns, and Cookiedia. Was exciting to see all these new books after the great selection from last week, yet another large selection this week.
But, these are the only ones I am interested in owning. In fact these are on my buy list NOW. I loved these books. Tea with Bea an amazing book…surprise! Dessert with Michel Roux I knew would be a good book, I have others by him. The Choclatique by Ed Engoron was the best of them all!! I Loved it!! It is so fun to go and get to look and try them before buying them.

Oh my goodness gracious…..I got so excited when I went to the library today it took me three trips to the car ~ it did, now that is a great day! Now do you see what an amazing resource the library is…..so what is keeping you from going? There is some great new books in this stack can you make out some of them? I will list my favorites later ~ K
Well, you can always tell the holiday season is not far away by the amount of cookbooks coming out. They want to gain that extra buying power the holidays bring. With the amount of cookbooks I own and then amount I have read over the years I should be an expert…by now. Some are great ~ some are okay and some should not even waist the paper….sadly enough some of the even more popular ones are the worse ones. So look before you buy! Big names does not mean a good book.
So, funny just got an e-mail they have 20 more books for me that came in today…so jump in your car and go to your local library. Then you to can enjoy the fun. I order them on line and they hold them in a bin. I run in the library and check them out, I am in and out in 5 minutes. I love the library!! Thanks ladies!!!
