That sounds like a good read, Charlie. Thank you for sharing the link. Any novel that includes recipes from back in the day is my kind of book.

Paper Moon, about the con man, Moses Pray, in the 30s, with his daughter helping him out.

I just finished The Phantom Filly. They made a movie based on this book back in 1944, I think it was, that starred Lon McAllister and Walter Brennan. The movie was OK, the book is an enjoyable read from start to finish.

Leaving a link IS a good idea, Kayelle. Thank you, Charlie, for giving us such a great idea!

I just picked up a book from the library, but haven't started it yet. It's called "An Everlasting Meal". The info I read online before I requested it described it as more of an essay and less of a cookbook. Sounded intriguing, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Ahh Haa CG!! I gotta have this one also! It sound like just the thing so many cooks here strive for..cooking by "creative instinct" rather the the religion of never straying from a recipe.
Thanks for the link! Yep, I try to always leave a link for anything I read. Goodreads is a good one.

Actually I was afraid that I'd be told to remove the link, as it might be considered advertising.

Also, the description is somewhat misleading. It is not all about "cute". It is about life, work, choices people make. I couldn't put it down.

Not to worry Charlie, as long as you aren't the author. Links for Amazon for example are left all the time.

Right. It's advertising when you're trying to sell something. You're just providing a means to get further information.

I could not make it any further than page 27 in this book. Page 27! Let's just say most of the posts here on DC are better reading.

Returned to the library, and picked up another non-cookbook cooking book: "My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Saved My Life" by Ruth Reichll. I'm more hopeful for this book, since I've seen Ruth Reichl on "The Chew" and she has been interesting to watch and listen to. I should be offline for the night soon, and plan on cracking the book open for a a bit of reading before hitting the sack.
