Future purchases: vegetarian cookbooks.

After referring to a miso recipe on her site in an LJ comment and going back to read more of her site afterward, I'd like to check out all of Mollie Katzen's cookbooks, including Pretend Soup and Honest Pretzels for the midget.

Laurel Robertson's Laurel's Kitchen books look worth reading too, especially the one on whole-grain breadmaking, and in the "quick healthy things for dinner" category, Better Than Peanut Butter and Jelly and The Vegetarian Lunchbasket piqued my interest.

(ObDisclaimer: we are not practicing vegetarians or vegans; Vogon's a former vegetarian, I'm squeamish about handling uncooked meat and poultry, and we're all fond of soy.)

I never did buy a Katzen book, but I thought that the layout of Pretend Soup was great. I remember seeing it when I worked at Tattered Cover, and thought it was a great book. I felt guilty about buying it though, as it's technically a child's book. But heck, I'm a child, so maybe I'll get it anyway. Thanks for reminding me of it. :)

You worked at Tattered Cover? *lust*

I think you should treat yourself to children's books once in awhile. I've been building my my own stash of children's books that I planned to keep out of any kids' reach for my own enjoyment for years, especially the works of Robert McCloskey, Edward Gorey, and Dr Seuss. I'm a closet Eloise fan, too. (;

I've been tempted to buy a bunch of READ posters to frame and hang in Laurel's bedroom, but then I got distracted by the celebrity READ posters. How cool would it be to have the Indigo Girls, Margaret Cho and Yo-Yo Ma to rotate through display?

ANYTHING is better than peanut butter and jelly for me. X_x

After looking through Laurel's trick-or-treat haul, I imagine Halloween must have been interesting for you as a kid.

Out of curiosity, are you allergic to other nuts too?

*adds them to list* Their salad dressings look delicious too! Oh, the choices. (:

Ithaca's always been on my list of cool towns to visit, but we couldn't live there because of the winters. Perhaps some summer we'll stop over after visiting my relatives in New England.

I absolutely loved the Laurel's Kitchen cookbooks. I'm in a similar boat: also squeamish about handling raw meat and fond-of-soy.
