    Hi all....just wanted to pop in here.....I was over to our little village library last week, and what do you think I found on her discard shelf? Frugal Gourmet Whole Family Cookbook!!! Since I was donating a handful of unused (new) books, the librarian let me have JS's book for FREE! Yeah, for me!!! So, I may find a few recipes (only a few?) to add to Zaar for your dining pleasure. (probably after Christmas)

    Stay tuned!

    hmmm---Ive cooked from his book, and the international one also and have found his recipes to be some of the most consistently enjoyable ones out there Julia Childs also very consistent). Funny how some people come to totally different conclusions. Speaking of consistency, has anyone had good results with Martha Stewart?


    Not to highjack, but I've had dicey results with Martha and I know in the past her cookbooks we said to have a higher percentage of flops then normal. Even when things turn out the process for getting there is usually much fussier then most recipes and you can usually find a simpler alternative. I bought a used copy of her pie book tried two recipes for an auction - one had to be dumped and I had to really fix the other . I don't usually test recipes before using them for something special but with hers I would now.

    I used to always watch Jeff Smith - my favorite recipe of his was probably one of the simplest - Baking powder biscuits cooked at high heat in a cast iron frying pan. Yum!

    His books are easy to find at thrift stores if you're on the hunt.

    His books are also very readily available at library books sales. I see them all the time.

    I loved The Frugal Gourmet as a child! I was so sad to hear about the lawsuits, because watching the show with my mom and grandma is one of my most cherished memories. Sadly, though, I've never tried one of his recipes. Now I have to! And recommendations??? icon_biggrin.gif

    At the time I posted this recipe I did not remember where I stole it from. But it was from the Frugal Gourmet.
    Strawberries With Balsamic Vinegar

    Delicious! Give it a try. It is best served the day of preparing. It is NOT a dish that keeps overnight. I need to edit this recipe and include that tidbit of info...


    Hey, Pot Scrubber - I'd love to include this in the Jeff Smith Zaar cookbook. Any chance you'll include the attribution in the desc? icon_smile.gif

    Yes twenty or so years ago I had that book, used recipes out of it religiously. Then me and the girl I was with, broke up. I have never seen the book from that day on, she outright stole it.

    Sorry about your ex scooping off with your copy. You might give Amazon.com a try if you really want to replace it.
