I got my 2nd cookbook Artisan Bread In Five Minutes a Day.
I found that book a complete waste of money. It is not in 5 min. a day. You have to do all the prework first and then go from there. I also thought it was kinda gross sitting in your fridge for so long.

Although there were a couple of cookbooks at home when I was a kid, the first one I bought when I moved out on my own was Sunset's Cooking For Two...Or Just For You. This was around 1979.

I still have it.

The first cookbook I bought was The New York Times Natural Foods Cookbook. I was a vegetarian back then. It's not only vegetarian food. I still use it on occasion. I like recipes for whole grains and that attitude to food.

I guess I only saw the NY Times one 'cause I live on the right coast; you saw the LA Times one 'cause you live on the left coast.

I lived in New York at that time but I liked the recipes in the L.A. Times Natural Cookbook better than the N.Y. Times one.

Does my mother's head count as a cookbook? The only time I can remember the cookbooks coming out was when she was baking. Other than that she would just wing it.

You get more different stuff in NY than in Montreal.

How does Montreal enter in? I'm from N.Y. and live in L.A. now. Oh, I see, you live in Montreal! (light bulb goes off in my head)
