"What's for Dessert?" is the theme of our display in the Reference area this month. If you're wondering how many cookbooks the library owns, you'd probably be surprised. There are selections for beginners and for advanced chefs, a variety of nationalities and regional flavors, appliance related recipes for a crock pot or a bread machine, special diet selections like gluten-free and heart healthy, ingredient specific titles--Too Many Tomatoes, and The Compleat Blueberry Cookbook--and, a personal favorite, the ever popular menu by course including DESSERTS!
If that doesn't make you hungry enough, there are also novels and mysteries on display featuring desserts in their titles. Diane Mott Davidson and Joanne Fluke have each pubished series focusing with dessert themes--Tough Cookie and Fatally Flaky by Davidson; Lemon Meringue Pie Murder and Peach Cobbler Murder by Fluke. Other choices are familiar with dessert on the sidelines: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.
Stop by for a good recipe and leave with an armful of holiday reading.
