During our recent trip to Washington, we happened upon an estate sale high up a muddy dirt road in the mountains just south of Mt. St. Helens. And I found a treasure trove!
A whole box of miscellaneous vintage little cookbooks, plus a couple hand-selected out-of-print cookbooks, all for $8.00!! Woohoo!
I'd been looking for the Barbara Kafka Roasting cookbook for several years, but it is out of print. I was especially excited to find an original (1977) Mollie Katzen Moosewood Cookbook! (Mine, which was the 15 year anniversary edition, had an unfortunate encounter with a particularly juicy thawing peach pie...not that that prevents me from using it!)
It will be fun perusing all these vintage volumes! (of course, there are a couple useless ones "Foods That Melt Body Fat!" like they used to sell in the grocery checkout lines, but that is to be expected.) Overall it's a score!
