I just bought *another* Indian cookbook today (https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/...8-9917503?v=glance&s=books"&tag=pfamazon01-20), really marvelous recipes. Ofcourse I am so smart to enthousiastically tell people how incredible those recipes are, so now I am stuck with having to cook a buffet for a birthday party

A lot of people like French or Italian cooking, but those are actually my least favorites..

Did you see the 9 reviews on the cookbook? All 5 out of 5 stars!!
Ain't it great to make a good impulsive buy?

Having grown up in Texas, Mexican is at the top of my favorites.

I love to cook and I collect cookbooks. I especially love cookbooks from the 1600-1800's. They tie in with my love of history, but those people ate some NASTY stuff!! One early American cookbook I have goes on to explain that the most honored guests shoud get the cow eyeballs and the teeth (so they can suck the jelly out). Eeeewwwwww!!!

No roast beef & yorkshire pudding? Steak & Kidney pie? My grandmother on my father's side was from England and she would cook these all the time.

I think my favorite cuisine at the moment (I have phases) is Thai.

Alright, now I'm wiping up my laptop and praying it doesn't die. :wink:

Hey, I thought you were taking the "dog of evil"?

I was told she'll get past this stage in 6-7 years and then she'll be a great dog. Yeah, but I won't have a house left. I built her a $1,500 dog palace with two windows (cross ventillation) and a SKYLIGHT. She won't stay there. I'm thinking of adding central heat/air & wall to wall carpeting, cable tv, maybe then...?

The only thing that I was thinking to myself was: these people are deranged, who serves something like this? Then I started helping myself to the bean dish of my friend :O
