The other book I got recently was the Moosewood Restaurant Cooking for Health. This one came about because the Good Cook Cookbook Club was like, look, you can buy your membership-required book or we can just bill you. I opted for actually getting a book for that 20+ bucks. I have yet to cook anything out of it, but I've been through it twice already and can honestly say there is nothing in there that I'm not willing to try. Sure, there are some recipes that look less exciting than others, but they all look good. And, unlike a lot of non-meat books, this one includes the nutritional information for every recipe. I'm really excited about this one, and you can expect to start seeing my efforts here as I start going through it.
I just got a report from Mom that she is using her smoker (Cameron's stove-top mini smoker). Sis (AKA Crochet Renee) got me one in 2008 for Xmas, and I in turn got Mom, Sis, Deb, and several friends their own smokers this year. Our latest obsession in the smoker has been smoked red onions. In fact, I wish we had some red onions right now!
