What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? March 2014 edition! [through March 31, 2014]

To fellow Torontonians: Balfour used books on College:
http://balfourbooks.squarespace.com/ has their annual 50% book sale. They always have tons of great cook-books: I saw volumes by Richard Sax, several Time-Life cookbooks, and more than one Joy of Cooking.. as well as some Donna Hay. It's over on Tuesday. I exercised amazing restraint and only bought one cookbook, "Forever Summer" by Nigella..

Yes. Harbord Bakery is still there.. I live close by so should really visit it more often... not a big almond fan so not into those cookies, but think that they are known for their challah..

I love Good Egg: I live a little too close to it for my wallet's sake! Think that the WBB closing sale is worth a visit, although given the number of other people there last night, the good stuff might go fast!

Thanks for letting me know Prima! You saved me a trip! I did go to the World's Biggest Bookstore which is closing: everything (including magazines) is 50% off. Lots of good cookbooks left: I got the last copy of Jamie Oliver's 2013/14 yearbook for my brother..

Weight Watchers Foodies -- Groundhog Day Edition! -- February 2014 [OLD]

I had a colleague on WW a number of years ago (it was very successful for her, I might add). She was a bit short-tempered anyway, and her staff started referring to one particular dress as her "mean outfit". It was a very light dress, and I guess that she wore on her weigh in days, when she probably ate less than she should.. which made her very grumpy!

Made a biscoff bundt cake with chocolate ganache.. nothing to write home about. Took it to a dinner party where everyone left early so they could get up for the 7 AM hockey game!
Decide to make the imperial cookies for work, although Canadian living calls them empire cookies? Butter is softening for that..
