This is still one of my very favorite cookbooks. I love the original Moosewood cookbook, too, and still use it. Isn't it like having good, comfortable friends in the kitchen with you??? Love the way your painting is going. Really love it!

I love Moosewood cookbook too. Of course, all my cookbooks are packed and in storage, however years ago I gave my mom this Anna Thomas cookbook and the Moosewood so they are here for me to thumb through. I find I stimulate my appetite by looking thru a cookbook. I have a low appetite and so need the stimulation.

Thanks Mary for comment on my painting.
