The Book Club Cook Book – Literary Monday

One of my favorite books from 2011 was the Mad Men Cookbook.  I mean, who wouldn’t love the drinking and retro-cool food from the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Apparently, one of the authors of the Mad Men Cookbook, Judy Gelman, had an earlier book titled The Book Club Cookbook.  This book was right up my alley.  I love to read.  I love to cook.  I love to drink.  Well, the book had two of out three … Read more

I love Mad Men, I love cookbooks and I love the 1960’s.  Imagine my pure delight when we received a copy of The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook – I was over the moon.  Truthfully, I had been eyeing the cookbook up on Amazon but the hubby begged me to not add to my collection.  Our small place groans under the weight of books and I can’t seem to stop my compulsion to buy more.  Recently, … Read more
