I’ve had so many ladies tell me recently that they read cookbooks like they read novels. Do you? My mom is one of them! I’m admitting right now that I didn’t get that gene!!!
I do, however, love to find cookbooks for my “read-it-like-it’s-a-novel” cookbook-buyers and even those that actually use the recipes for their intended purpose! This weekend I found several to add to the booth. Of course, I have to let Mom read them first!
I bought this unusual cookbook because it has recipes as well as blanks for writing in your own recipes.
My guess is that this one would not “read” as well as the others, but maybe it’s perfect for the budding cookbook author!!!
My customers also love jelly glasses. I know that because they sell quickly after putting them in the booth. I found this set of four colorful glasses this weekend.
The Twelve Days of Christmas Cookbook is the perfect cookbook to read this time of the year while drinking sweet tea (or egg nog) from one of them!!!
But my favorite find…..the one that made me jump for joy……was this jelly glass featuring donkeys jumping over a fence.
I actually prefer to read Heloise’s Hints instead of cookbooks.
I think the jumping-donkeys jelly glass is the perfect accompaniment for reading her hints about how to take care of your “killer” girdle...obviously very important in this 1970 edition.
I say the best suggestion is to just “kill your girdle.” That’s something to jump for!!!!
