    Default Two of my latest favorite cookbooks

    I'm a huge cookbook collector, and I know many of you are as well. But
    I'm so tired of all the Food Network stars getting all the glory.
    There are so many wonderful non-TV personalities who have great
    cookbooks right now. Here are two of my current faves:

    "Williams-Sonoma Weeknight Fresh & Fast" by former Bon Appeit food
    editor, Kristine Kidd. This book is my new go-to cookbook for dinners.
    I love how healthy and delicious the recipes are. Kristine uses very
    little butter or oil (and I'm a huge fan of butter and oil, but these
    recipes always turn out really well) and using seasonal veggies. Most
    of them can be whipped up in minutes.

    "Beyond the Pasta" by Mark Leslie. This is a memoir/cookbook and not
    one of the recipes has failed me. All delicious and Mark has the most
    wicked and wonderful sense of humor. He loves Italy and his experience
    of learning to cook from a n Italian Grandmother is so fun to read
    about.


    What are your favorite cookbooks right now...that aren't written by a
    famous Food Network cook?

    PS I'm also LOVING Amanda Hesser's NYT cookbook.

    I've been enjoying "Food and Wine" magazine's annual cookbook from 2009. My
    father got it as a perk from one of his credit cards, AE I think, and it was
    just collecting dust over there, so I talked him out of it. It's not like
    he's going to cook!

    "The Picayune Creole Cook Book" first published in 1901 by the New Orleans
    newspaper "The Times Picayune" is a favorite of mine. There are later
    editions but the best is of the first one reprinted in 1971. A good read, a
    rather uppity attitude and a grand help. If you are not alarmed by buying
    used books, I see that www.abebooks.com has some copies in assorted
    conditions and easy prices. Not affiliated, just a place I really enjoy
    searching for cook books. Polly
