ahhhh i gave in!!

i gave into my wishlist and went on a cookbook shopping frenzy....... but uh.. they were all bargain buys!! think of all the money i saved!!! :P soon to be arriving at my home in different periods because i ordered them at different times and also on jessica's ebiscuit website... :

1. how to eat by nigella lawson (this purchase was way overdue!!)
2. desserts by pierre herme (my "chocolate desserts" book was getting lonely.....)
3. dessert circus by jacques torres (i love watching jacques on foodnetwork!)
4. the union square cafe cookbook (i saw it under the bargains.. and i couldn't resist)
5. rose's christmas cookie book (i've heard a lot of great stuff about this book)
6. death by chocolate: revised and expanded by marcel desaulniers (he's called the "king of ganache!"
7. death by chocolate cakes by marcel desaulniers (see above..... i've borrowed these books from the library and they cause death by just looking at them. so naturally i have to buy them!)

whew!!! i can't wait until they all arrive. it's a good thing they're going to come at different times or i may be overwhelmed by my own excitement. either that or by all the books crushing me!

GAAAAAHHH! That's a LOT of chocolate Emily! Now don't you go and bake (or cook) a lot of nice stuff from these so we all have to buy them! ;-)

There must be any number of blogs I could have ended up at after doing a search on lessons, but somehow I found myself at yours, Emily. The truth is I've enjoyed it and, yes, I did learn something - ahhhh i gave in!! is great value.

whata fun list of cookbooks! i love the union square cafe cookbook, and i've also cooked a lot out of Second Helpings from the Union Square Cafe. one of my favorite restaurants and chefs in NYC. i have a 7 pound bag of valrhona chocolate if you want some to start on your chocolate baking frenzy!
