I didn't order a cookbook!

I am a TOTAL Parrothead (Jimmy Buffett fan--bet ya didn't see that coming at all, right? ) so when I saw that there was an official Margaritaville cookbook being released, I initially scoffed at it. THEN I saw that Julia Turshen was a co-author and she is the co-author of many cookbooks and the sole author of Small Victories which is a cookbook that I've been into for the past 2 months and totally loving. That gave the book some cred in my, um, book. I put it in my Amazon cart but I just couldn't bring myself to buy it. So tonight I was a BIG GIRL and requested it from the local library. Apparently they are still in the ordering phase of getting it, but I am #4 on the list of requesting it! My husband will be so happy to hear that I did NOT buy another cookbook. . . yet. If I love it, I will. I suspect that I will not, though. Stay tuned!

Something tells me based on your wording here that you will eventually own the book.

I don’t know. It could go either way. I already have close to 100 cookbooks in my kitchen so I won’t buy it unless I love it.

I look forward to hearing how you like the cookbook once it becomes your turn to get it.

Ah, so you like Margarittaville, now I see why you hate my music. Cookbooks what good are they? Just throw a bunch of stuff together that sounds good. Guy mentality protect guy rights.

@NJChicaa Hell no, why I let my brother cook, he is more intune with the female culture of cooking and that is not sextist. Just true and me very thankful. Love the ladies cooking.

Tell us about your favorites. I think it is a smart way to preview a cook book.

I usually just buy them but with already almost 100 in the collection, I’m trying to control myself.
