What cookbooks have you bought lately, or are you lusting after? Roll out those lazy crazy days of summer, July 2015 edition!

Does her tahdig include yogurt or eggs? I've been looking at recipes recently and wondering which version to make.

I'm surprised no one has come out with a product that does the same thing. There are certainly enough corn zippers, avocado slicers, strawberry corers, watermelon knives, etc. out there!

Mung Bean Starch (aka Green Bean Starch)

I have some green bean starch in my pantry - do you have a recipe for the spicy mung bean jelly noodles you'd care to share?

That's probably why I like them. I love Barnum's Animal Crackers.

"The Asian Grandmother's Cookbook: Home Cooking from Asian American Kitchens" - covers a range of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Burmese, Filipino, Indonesian, Indian... anyone cooked from this book?

I also like the Belgian Almond Thins but didn't care much for the lemon thins. Here are some other TJ's cookies I like:
Almond Windmill Cookies
Lattemielle
All Butter Shortbread (with the chocolate drop in the center, not the jam ones)

DUNLOP March Cookbooks of Month: Meat

We are loving the Pork Slivers with Preserved Mustard Tuber - I've made it three times in the last 3 weeks. I'm a sucker for pickles and zha cai, though - I could eat a packet with some rice for lunch and be a happy camper.

I have it and have cooked several recipes out of it. Majority were a success - I think I posted some notes on an earlier thread.

"Pasta By Hand"
"The Complete Indian Regional Cookbook"
"Real Baby Food" - I mostly try to feed my 11 month old what we eat, but sometimes need ideas when that doesn't work.

A long way out, but I read that Sofra Bakery's cookbook will finally be out in the fall of 2016 and titled "Soframiz: Recipes from Sofra Bakery and Cafe."

They'd definitely be better crispy.

"Maangchi's Real Korean Cooking: Authentic Dishes for the Home Cook" arrived yesterday. Looks good so far!

Chocolate Slice Cookies (Martas skurna chokladkakor) from "Fika". I inadvertently doubled the cocoa and would do it again. A lovely, chocolately cookie. The middles of mine were a bit soft, though - anyone know if they are supposed to be crisp all the way through?

I love Fika, although I've only made one recipe. It's such an appealing little book.

The PB cookies are only fragile when they come out of the oven - instructions say to cool on the cookie sheet and you really need to do that or they'll fall apart. I used Skippy - not sure if a natural PB would make a difference in fragility. The internet tells me you could try a 1:1 sub of white sugar but your cookies may be crisper. You could also add 2 T. molasses for every cup of white sugar.

King Arthur Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. In my humble opinion, much better than regular PB cookies:

From "Fika": Blackberry Almond Cake (mandelkaka med björnbär), made with boysenberries. Surprisingly good. Tasted a bit like poundcake to me. I added the optional cinnamon sugar sprinkle on top.

Ordered "Sesame & Spice: Baking from the East End to the Middle East"

"Hijacked Biscoff Cookies" from Milk Bar - the texture on these is great - sandy and crumbly. Ratio is 1 stick of butter to 1 cup of flour, so they are not dry. Moreish enough that I haven't given them up to the office kitchen yet. Spicing is good, but not as good as the speculaas I made a few weeks ago.

I can't seem to get a flavorful kabocha squash to make this dish successfully. Every one is bland, bland, bland. Is there an art to buying good ones?

Thomas Keller's Coconut Cake - which one?

I second this - very delicious cake.

I started doing this not too long ago - I use parchment running both ways and, if I'm lucky, I don't need to even wash the pan afterwards.
