Today, we visited Vroman's one of our favorite bookstores in Pasadena, CA... no, we did not go to the Wine Bar, but I did manage to get another cookbook.

Not sure, but if I counted right, I would be very close to having this as number 100. I need to have a recount count. Last time I counted I did not include the ones in my home office that I am in the middle of always reading. Hence Diane graciously reminded me today: "...another cookbook..."? Told her there are three recipes she would love. Needless to say, on the way home she asked about it and let her know.

In case you are wondering it is called "From the Oven to The Table". I do a lot of baked meals and it is easy to do and tastes better than boiling or sauteing.

Yes, there are many wonderful baked recipes, just to tease you, beets, salmon, vegetables and even red meat:) ( as you know that is not on our menu)

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - You have 100 (or so) cookbooks.  How do you keep all those different recipes straight?   But,  it is fun to get a new book with recipes to try.  I remember Vromans, when I worked in Pasadena.  Of course that was over 2 decades ago, pushing 3 decades!

Hey there Endre Barath, Jr. It's funny how just the other day I was thinking that I needed to visit the library or bookstore and read a book which I haven't done in ages.  I used to be an avid reader and I miss that.  Adding the visit to my list and planning for mission to be accomplished no later than the end of the week.

Hi Endre:

You certainly have us beat in the number of cookbooks in your collection - can't say I have counted ours but it's a fair number. We'll all be watching for your post on your first recipe from that new cookbook. No doubt Diane is waiting too!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. , I like your photos, the idea to buy a cookbook from an independent book-store and the chuckle, of course. Are you counting the 100 best restaurants in town, or your cookbooks?

Oh, that sounds wonderful, Endre and I know that deep down, Diane wasn't the least bit surprised that you selected another cookbook! 

Funny but, I get LOST in that section of the store and often have to step away to find my next fiction (or nonfiction) read for my bookclub! LOL

Can't wait to see what you prepare from this one - LOVE the idea of baked beets!

Debe Maxwell, CRS  funny you should say that, I was so proud the previous three or four times I did managed to walk out without buying a book or specifically a cook book.... now with that said I was "Overdue to buy one" Endre
