New cookbook acquisitions!

Our walk through the street fair this afternoon took the Suitor and me past the two bookstores we frequent nearly every time we walk down that particular street (which is often, as it's just a block over from where we live). One is a Books Inc. and the other is a used bookstore; we rarely visit either without getting at least one book. Today was my lucky day at the used bookstore. On the "new this week" cart were two books that I've been meaning to get: Bernard Clayton's New Complete Book of Breads (30th anniversary edition) and the Moosewood Cookbook (15th anniversary edition, although since that was 1992, it probably has a 30th anniversary edition of its own by now). I've been wanting a big, comprehensive bread book, as I love making bread but don't have many recipes lying around. I've also had my eye on the Moosewood book, especially because I'd like to expand the veggie section of my cookbook collection. I'm looking forward to going through both of them and flagging recipes to try!

I used to cook out of that Moosewood a lot -- in fact, back in my Rice days -- but I haven't looked at in a while. I should revisit!

I have one of the Moosewood cookbooks, but I don't remember which one.

(You can tell I don't use it)

A glowing recommendation! ;)

Some of the recipes are ones I will probably never try (I'm generally not one for casseroles) but some of the soups and salads look great.

I have two Moosewood cookbooks. I have to admit, other than the desserts, I don't use them as much as I used to (I think that's because they dishes are a bit heavier and are better for Ithaca/Chicago winters!)
