Also, whenever you hit a key and your typing disappears, just do CTRL-Z to bring it back (that's UNDO). It should work in most ways.
First of all, yes, that is the cookbook. It is where my husband learned to make pasta and I learned to make pesto. I don't think I've lost it, I have hundreds of cook books and it is one I'd least be likely to part with.

Secondly, thank you for the hint about disappearing text. I wrote it down and I'm sure I'll use it. I just wish I knew what I was doing to make this happen.

Are you using a laptop? They seem to be sensitive to mystery moves.

Oh, if anyone is looking for an odd-ball cook book and likes thrift stores and old used book stores (one of my favorite sources for old cookbooks), keep an eye out for "Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices by the Herters. (George Leonard Herter and Berthe E. Herter) It is truly fun. I've never used it to actually cook anything, but the writers are so opinionated and absolutely amusing. Mom gave it to me and I don't know who in the heck gave it to her (I'll have to ask the next time I call). I gather that once , if not still, there was a restaurant run by this couple.

No, it isn't a laptop, but it is a newer keyboard and even Computer Guy (who really knows his stuff) can't quite figure out what key I hit (it is definitely my right pinkie finger) that makes all dissappear. I think laptop will come in my near immediate future. Meant to do it years ago.

I ran across a cookbook called The Mayberry Cookbook or something like that. It has some fairly good recipes in it... But the best parts are the quotes from the show (the andy griffith show) and a few reads about some of the characters. It's a good one to have in your collection...

That is a fun cookbook and the recipes are very good even though the names get a little hokie.

They issued another one with only desserts also very good.

Yea, the title of some of the recipes would give you a chuckle. I didn't know they have a dessert one. I'll have to check out..

Oh Dawgluver I'm so glad to hear that. I just ordered that cookbook from Second Time Around for $4. It's on its way, now I'm REALLY excited about getting it!

I love old cookbooks. I have a Fannie Farmer, American Women's, The Art of Fine Baking, many old bound books that I always reach for first....
