Find signed collectible books by 'IRMA S ROMBAUER' Sixty years after Irma Rombauer advised new cooks to "Stand facing the stove," America's love affair with "Joy of Cooking" continues unabated. And why not? "Joy" in hand, tens of millions of people -- from novices to professionals -- have learned to do everything from make a meat loaf to clean a squid to frost a wedding cake. For decades, "Joy of Cooking" has taught America how to cook, serving as the standard against which all other cookbooks are judged. "All About Vegetarian Cooking" upholds that standard. While keeping the conversational and instructional manner of the flagship book, "All About Vegetarian Cooking" is organized by ingredient and type of dish. Chapters include stocks and soups, salads, vegetables, beans and tofu, pastas and grains, and eggs, and incorporate more than 100 of "Joy's" bestloved vegetarian recipes, from Roasted Vegetable Lasagne to Greek Spinach and Cheese Pie. You'll also find information on nutrition for vegetarians, planning menus, and rules for serving sizes, as well as tips and techniques for buying, storing, and preparing fresh vegetables. Add to that more than 150 original photographs, specially commissioned for this volume, presented in the most easy-to-use design imaginable. Whether you belong to one of the millions of American households that already own a copy (or two) of "Joy, " or you have never cracked the spine of a cookbook before, "Joy of Cooking: All About Vegetarian Cooking" is for you. It is a spectacular achievement, worthy of its name. "Joy" has never been more beautiful. "The Indispensable Kitchen Resource... All-New, All-Purpose, and now All-in-Color"

    Book summary:

    Christmas and cookies are inseparable. The mere mention of baking cookies conjures up memories not just of tantalizing aromas and great tastes but of warm kitchens and good times with family and friends. Joy of Cooking Christmas Cookies brings together in a single volume 75 indispensable cookie recipes and more than 25 recipes for holiday extras. That's more than 100 recipes, half of which are brand new. This book also offers a sneak preview of the revision of Joy of Cooking, the first in more than two decades.

    Written with clarity, humor, and a dedication to detail that has always set the Joy of Cooking apart from all other cookbooks, this book will teach anyone from the person who has never baked a single cookie to the experienced home baker how to turn out a perfect cookie every time. A treasure trove of information, this book contains basic instructions on measuring ingredients, handling and shaping cookie doughs, and decorating cookies, supported by helpful line drawings every step of the way. Recipes include the full range of cookies from the simplest one-pan bar cookies like Chocolate-Glazed Toffee Bars and Scottish Shortbread to those that are dropped onto a cookie sheet (don't miss the new Monster Cookies) to Christmas production numbers like Spritz that are piped through a press. On the familiar side are recipes for chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and sugar cookies. Brief but precise directions ensure that the brownies will be fudgey and moist, the chocolate chips chewy, and the sugar cookies meltingly tender. On the novel side are such irresistible new entries as Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, Tuscan Almond Biscotti, and Chocolate Mint Surprises.

    Among this Book's unique features:

    • A full-color photograph of every cookie
    • Brand-new recipes for reduced-fat cookies that taste wonderful
    • An easy-to-make gingerbread house
    • Storage suggestions that help you plan your baking time when conipany is coming
    • Recipes for eggnog, mulled cider and wine, and three kinds of homemade hot chocolate
    • A section on extras-a California fruitcake for the 90s made with dried fruits and nuts, a plum pudding Charles Dickens would have loved, Stollen, Chocolate Truffles, Bourbon Balls, Candied Popcorn, and more.
    For sparkling additions to any weekday or for a splendid display of special party presentations, the new Joy of Cooking Christmas Cookies is the only cookie book you'll ever need.
