New Cookbooks!

Today I got two books I have been eagerly anticipating. It was like Christmas in November! The first is a world-wide compendium called The dumpling : a seasonal guide by Wai Hon Chu and Connie Lovatt. The second is My bread : the revolutionary no-work, no-knead method by Jim Lahey. You may know Lahey from Mark Bittman's writing. I've tried bread made with his incredibly easy method and it is delicious. I can hardly wait to try out the recipes.

Asian Dumplings

Some books make the reader hungry. Asian Dumplings is one of those books. It's filled with mouth-watering photos of a wide variety of dumplings. The accompanying directions cover all aspects of the cooking process: from making the dough to forming and filling the dumplings. I am intrigued by many of the recipes, including a particularly delicious sounding Nepalese Vegetable and Cheese Dumplings. But I think I will start with Baked Filled Buns. Yum.

Chick Flicks You May Have Missed

I absolutely love chick flicks. Mostly I adore romantic comedies, but I don't mind a three hankie film now and then. The only problem I have is finding new titles to watch. If you feel the same way, read on to find a list of some of the more obscure chick flicks I have found here at CPL. If you know of some chick flicks I may have missed, let me know!

Do you love fantasy books in which a whole different world exists right next to — or within — our own? If you do, you might want to check out the Comtemporary Fantasy Wiki.

One name I didn't see on the wiki was Neal Shusterman, author of some dark and creepy books including: Everlost and Downsiders. And if you've already read everything and want the newest we've got, get on the hold list for Megan Crewe's Give up the ghost. I've heard some good things about it.
