    I just bought *another* Indian cookbook today (Savoring India: Recipes and Reflections on Indian Cooking), 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.

    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...?
