Hi everyone,
Thank each of you for your thoughts about judging thickness and your
favorite cookbooks and gadgets. The thickness answers were similar to what I
thought they'd be. I feel better knowing that I'm not the only one who
doesn't like the knife with a guide. 
Thanks again,
Nancy Martin

The Joy of Cooking is a must. It's more than a cookbook, its' a cooking
textbook, with a lot of technique in it.

Betty crocker's cookbook is a similar one. Get it through Bookshare.

If you can find it the 1918 Fannie Farmer cookbook is wonderful. It's the
last one she put together before her death, and it has a lot of the basics
in it.
There was a wonderful little book my ex found called The Can Opener
Cookbook. It's vintage, from when housewives were just starting to use a lot
of canned goods, but it kept things simple. If you can find it, scan it and
make it available for Bookshare so we can have access to it, and if I find
it first (mine got stolen) I'll get it up there.
I love the Foods of the World series from Time-Life. They haven't reissued
them yet, but hopefully they will some day. If they don't I'm working on
collecting them.
There's a great book called "Recipes from the backs of Boxes, Bottles, Cans,
and Jars" that has a lot of those things you find on a package, and I'm
planning on scanning my copy and putting it up on Bookshare as soon as I
find my big book of recipes.
I recently found a great book on Indian (dots, not feathers) cuisine called
Curry: A tale of Cooks and Conquerors, by Lizzie Collingham, which both
deals with how East Indian cuisine came about and some of the recipes
typical of the cuisine. I haven't made any of them yet, but it was a great
listen. NLS has it, and it's downloadable on BARD if you have a digital
player
For those of a zymurgical bent, (wine making) there's Acton & Duncan's book,
Making Mead. I love this book, and I hope to get it scanned soon. It's
written from a British perspective, but other than the fact that Heather
honey is hard to get in the Americas it'll work. I've made a lot of good
honey wines from it. The wimemaker's recipe handbook, by Raymond massaccesi
is also interesting, and it's another one I hope to have available soon on
Bookshare. And for something different there's Cider by Annie prouslx and
lew Nichols, which is a great book on making ciders of all kinds.
For something without the octane I  got a lot out of Cresswell's book,
Homemade Root Beer and Soda Pop. It's another one I plan to scan soon and
put up on Bookshare.

Sorry that a lot of these aren't blind accessible yet, but if I can get a
bit of sighted assistance I can locate them and run them through the trusty
HP Scanjet and they'll be around for y'all to benefit from soon.

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know what cookbooks and cooking gadgets you find the most
helpful. If you'd rather write me off list, that's ok.

Thanks in advance,

Nancy Martin
