It's that time of year again! The annual Friends of the Library Cookbook Silent Auction is under way. Matter of fact, it ends tomorrow, so if you want to take adavantage of some truly great deals in cookbooks of all kinds, you'd better hurry on down to the Library and put in some bids. The Friends have put out 146 top-quality titles in the culinary arts, covering everything from Beer Can Chicken to Four-Ingredient Dinners, and lots more besides. There are specialty cookbooks on pies, cakes and cooking for diabetics (talk about range!). There's a Biggest Loser cookbook, a Weight Watchers cookbook and a Fat Chance Cookbook. They're right there along with "Baking with the Cake Boss," "Italian Desserts and Pastries," and "James McNair's Pie Cookbook." Don't think you have the talent? Try "The Can't Cook Book" (100 recipes for the absolutely terrified). Want something a little over the edge? How about "The Dead Celebrity Cookbook?" Want to cook and read? There's "The Book Club Cook Book." Love to eat and just can't get enough of it? There's "Eat More of What You Love" and "Eat What You Love Every Day," both by Marlene Koch (low fat, low sugar, low calorie recipes so you can eat tons and not feel guilty). Or if you have no guilt, there's the "All Butter, Cream-Filled, Sugar Packed Baking Book." If you're going to go overboard, you might as well go all the way, right? But it all ends tomorrow at noon, so come on in now and place your bids. Bon appetit!
After several tense moments of silent pondering, Lisa puts in her bids for some choice cookbooks.
