I've got a newer version too, Sydney, in paperback form. I never thought to look and see if it's there. I just always reach for "old reliable." Wink Do you know how many cookbooks I've collected over the years? I'd be ashamed to tell you.


Paperback? Mine isn't paperback I would prefer that. I will have to look for that next time I am in the book store.


I actually got it as part of a set of three paperbacks: The Fanny Farmer Cookbook, The Pillsbury Cookbook, and the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. I'm not sure where I got them (several years ago). QVC, maybe? I used to watch that quite a bit, and I know I ordered some Mr. Food cookbooks from there.

OK So I have plenty of cookbooks, starting from my grandfather's collection (he was a baker and had recipes for making 24 loaves of bread at a time...thank God for conversion programs today). Many of these I read like books, not because I have a chance to use them often. One of my more recent acquisitions was:

Food To Die For: Secrets From Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen by Patricia Cornwell

Now that one is a good read! LOL Laughing


How neat that you inherited your grandfather's cookbook collection, Carolyn! I'm sure you think of him every time you pick up one of those books.

It's funny, the way some collections start, isn't it? My mother died when I was in the second grade, and I inherited her collection of salt and pepper shakers. That began my own collection that I've added to, every now and then, over the years. Of course, a lot of mine are Disney oriented or just plain cute, but . . . it's sort of a tie to a mother I never really got to know.

And, like you, I love to read cookbooks, so I'm glad you mentioned Kay Scarpetta's Kitchen. I didn't realize the recipes had been put in a cookbook. I checked it out at Amazon, and guess what! She has another cookbook, too . . . Scarpetta's Winter Table. Have you seen it?

http://www.amazon.com/Scarpettas-Winter-Table-Patricia-Cornwell/dp/0941711420/ref=pd_sim_b_img_1

It doesn't get as good reviews as the book you have, though.

Thanks. I see they have some used copies for a pretty cheap price. I might just need to make that investment as a birthday present to myself. (I always give myself the BEST presents.) Laughing Laughing

That's OK! If truth be told, Carolyn and Elizabeth were my favorite names when I was growing up. I can't tell you how many dolls I had with variations of those names. Laughing Laughing You reached my alter-ego without even knowing.
