I thought this would be a light week when I found a copy of the “China Study Cookbook” on the library “new” books table.
But when I visited Whole Foods Market Saturday, I couldn’t resist stopping at the local library and I found a few more fun books to borrow.
The Food Matters Cookbook by Mark Bittman – Adding to my Bittman collection from last week (Food Matters and Kitchen Express) I’m always looking for inspiration for low-meat and meatless dinners.
The year-round vegetable gardener by Niki Jabbour – this book’s cover jumped out at me, with her greens surrounded by snow! I was recently in a discussion with my husband about finding a way to re-purpose old glass windows into a cold frame for winter veggies.
Seamus Mullen’s hero food by Seamus Mullen – found this on the new books shelf. Browsing through it, there was mention of Vermont, so I was hooked.
Techniques of healthy cooking by the Culinary Institute of America – I am not usually a fan of “diet” books, but this one was in agreement that lowfat diets just don’t work, and it’s the way you use fat that’s important. So I’m giving it a looksie. PLUS, wow can you believe they’re selling it on amazon for almost $50!!! This is one reason I cherish my library so much!
