On Saturday Feb 21st, we went to the Metropolitan Library Systems Book Sale! ItBaking Books Bonanza at CakeArtisan.com was my first time which became more evident as we approached the Oklahoma State Fair Ground. There were far more cars trying to park than I ever anticipated. Seasoned book fair veterans toted bags, suitcases and plastic garbage cans with wheels and I saw one lady with her little red wagon!! These people were serious.

Upon entering the pavilion where the books were, there were taped off rows where the early birds had been made wait until the doors opened, so you just know all the good books were already gone. Even so, I managed to snaggle 22, yes TWENTY TWO great books filled with culinary baking delights from days gone by to more recently published Pastry, Pillsbury and Betty Crocker baking books. How much did this booty cost me… $26.00 for the entire load!

I guess the reason to share this news with you apart from my obvious over-excitement is that I hope to prepare many treats from these treasures in the coming months and continue to add to my trove of tried and true recipes.  If you don’t have a book fair anywhere near you soon, I suggest getting along to the local library to borrow and browse before you buy!  Have a great week!

What a haul! When I used to work at the public library, I loved going over the incoming cookbooks. Support your local library – it is the best free resource!
