Now that there’s a snap in the air, I can see myself cooking more. In the summer, it’s so easy to just fire up the outside grill or make salads – all wonderful of course, but isn’t there something more homey about making soups, stews, quiches, etc?

So here we have some of the latest cookbooks for you:
The Ski House CookbookThe Ski House Cookbook: Warm Winter Dishes for Cold Weather Fun, by Tina Anderson and Sarah Pinneo, 641.5 ANDER
You’ll find slow cooked meals, après-ski snacks, beverages and more.

Talk with Your Mouth Full: The Hearty Boys Cookbook, by Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh, 641.5 SMITH
The authors are two former actors who waited tables in between acting jobs. The Hearty Boys was the name of their catering company once they got into the food business. This book provides recipes, of course, and also some great menu ideas, with insights into the lives of the two authors.
