So I can't resist the call of a good kitschy cookbook. I just can't. If it's something goofy and offbeat, I am SO there.
Some recent finds include:
Cooking With Friends. Like, Friends the TV show.
Soupcon I: Seasonal Samplings From The Junior Leauge of Chicago
Sugar Plum Fare from the Scholarship Committee from the National Ballet School
The Hagen Family Cookbook. Evidentally, this family went together, collected all their recipes, and had them published into one book. It's really heavy into Norweigan foods, which is interesting.
And the Marlboro "Cook Like A Man" cookbook, which leans heavily on the talents of one Bobby Flay, because every recipe contains enough pepper that I got uncomfortable just reading about them. Looking over the cookbook prompted my fiancee, who is a smoker himself, to go "Yes, because you've killed so many of your taste buds smoking Marlboros, that you have to use that many peppers, just to taste the food!"
Good eats! I plan to work my way through at least one of them soon!
