A Cookbook Revelation

Greetings from Omaha! I made a new-to-me discovery very late last night when I was wide awake on West Coast time. I'm obviously a huge fan of Google and all its products (who isn't?)... but Google Books? I can't believe I've never played with this before. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what's available there, but what I did look at was cookbooks. Wow.

I adore cookbooks, even though I don't use them as often as I'd like, so I feel like a kid in a candy store. amateur cook in a free cookbook store? There are many, many cookbooks that are either partially or entirely online and available for public viewing/printing/use. I used the advanced book search feature with the limited preview and full view option, and entered "cookbook" in the subject field.

I've been adding books to my shared public library. You can see my picks here. I'd love to know if you come across other interesting finds.

See? Here's a screenshot from the Moosewood Cookbook.

p.s. Still working on that RSS feed post layout issue. Sorry for the ugliness.
