Let’s chat about the 641’s. I don’t like to shelve the 641’s. I don’t like to take people to the 641’s. I don’t want to look at the 641’s. See, when I see them, I take them home with me. That’s my problem. The 641’s are the cookbooks. I love to cook, and most of all, I love to eat.
If you know Dover Public Library, then you know we have an awesome collection of cookbooks. You like to bake? We have cake books, cookie books, bread books, step-by-step how to bake cookbooks. We have pizza, pasta, pies and tarts cookbooks. Southern, Northern, Mid-western cookbooks, Irish, Greek, Italian, Mexican cookbooks. Serious Barbecue cookbooks. Home cooking, restaurant chefs, vegetarian and Amish cookbooks. Cookbooks on soup, how to make it, store it, enjoy it. Want to learn to make jam? Put your own food up for the winter? Butcher you a cow or pig? We have a book for that.
Just get a crock-pot? Well, let me help you with some great crock-pot recipes! Check out 365 SLOW COOKER SUPPERS by Stephanie O’Dea. I Like this book because the author uses fresh ingredients in the recipes. Her daughter has food sensitivities, so the mother must really watch what the family eats. The recipes are quick and very easy to pull together, and oh so good.
THE COMPLETE IDIOT’S GUIDE TO EATING WELL ON A BUDGET by Lucy Beale and Jessica Partridge is good, too. I liked 365 WAYS TO WOK by Linda Drachman as well. If you have a picky eater, try DECEPTIVELY DELICIOUS by Jessica Sienfeld. I like quick and easy, so JUST ONE POT from the editors of Reader’s Digest, or any books with the words “One Dish Meals” are good if you don’t want to spend the time scrubbing pots and pans.
I could go on, but I think you’ve got the idea.
Check out a cookbook next time you’re in the library and mention this blog post to the librarian at the Circulation Desk. I will have a home-made treat for the first two people who mention this blog!
