Cookbook finds for September 2018
Are you a cookbook addict? I am! I used to have a very large bookcase that was so full there were books stacked on top of it and on the leftover space on the shelves in front of the books. I was out of control. Luckily Amazon’s Kindle and digital books came along. At first it was just good for replacing my novel library but now with color tablets and Kindles you can read your favorite cookbooks with full effect. I have only purchased digital cookbooks for years now and I can’t pass up on a great deal.
These books are all $3.99 or less with most of them just $1.99.

The Mac + Cheese Cookbook
by Allison Arevalo an Erin Wade
There is no shortage of recipes for one of America’s favorite dinners—pasta coated in creamy cheese—but the great majority of them fall flat. Here’s a collection of recipes from Allison Arevalo and Erin Wade, who run Homeroom, a restaurant in Oakland, California, dedicated to mac and cheese. Their approach includes making a killer sauce, boosting flavors with more than one kind of cheese, cooking the pasta just so, seasoning with salt—but not too much—and options for stovetop as well as oven-baked. Tuna mac, truffle mac, and vegan mac are among the 50 recipes.
