Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Marg from The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. It's easy to join, just post your loot and link up with Mr. Linky at either Claire or Marg's blog. It's that simple!
Hey there! I've been meaning to join in the weekly Library Loot forever and I finally remember to post my loot! I'm a regular at the library, stopping in a couple of times a week. Usually it's to pick up holds or return items but every once in a while I'll check out what the library has on display in their featured section.
This week the display features cookbooks. I love cookbooks but I do have a pet peeve about cookbooks - they must have pictures! I'm always surprised when I pick up a cookbook with little or no pictures. They must have at least some pictures, not drawings, of the finale product. No pictures, not interested. I did spot Anne Burrell's Cook Like a Rock Star. Lots of delicious looking pictures along with some of Anne with friends and family.
A quick look inside and I already found three recipes I want to try. The first is Killer Mac & Cheese with Bacon. Now, I'm not a big fan of mac & cheese but add bacon to the mix and I'm more than willing to give it a try.
Next is Goat Cheese Cheesecake with Spiced Nilla Wafer Crust. Doesn't that sound tasty? I've just recently, in the last few years, come to appreciate the deliciousness that is cheesecake. Never had it with goat cheese but I'm up for a little adventure, I just won't tell the kids about the goat cheese. :)
The other recipe is one for Stewed Zucchini. I rarely eat zucchini, mostly because the only way I'm at all familiar with it is in zucchini bread. But the picture looked yummy and it's healthy. Win/Win.
So there's my Library Loot for this week. Did you get any goodies from the library this week?
