Susan Branch and cookbook love...
Her blog has a way of always making me happy. Do you read it? Click... here. Victoria loves the bird chirping background. ;)
As far as her latest book, some will remember my review. Go ahead, pop on over here and scroll down. See who left the last comment. That made me smile, too. What a sweetheart she is.
This review was also featured on Susan's Facebook status, which is updated by her California staff. I still keep A Fine Romance close enough to peruse it on dark winter days. It is quite magical (Narnia magic, you know).
As for some of the cookbooks, they are often available used on Amazon at very reasonable prices. They tend to go on publisher's overstock sales... so if you keep the title on your Wish List and check back it is fairly easy to follow the prices. I was fortunate to get some of the cookbooks for only a dollar each at library sales through the years, too.
Like many of you, I read cookbooks as some do novels. Especially those with pictures since I seem to have regressed to my Kindergarten preferences.
On the other hand, I just sent Stephanie my copy of The Elliott Homestead: From Scratch: Traditional, Whole-Foods Dishes for Easy, Everyday Meals. The price had skyrocketed so I guess waiting to purchase a book can work both ways.
