Lola Nova's Entry


Lola Nova - Whatever Lola Wants

To me, seeing cookbooks in a home like this, gives me the same calm, serene feeling that I get when I see clothes on a line. What is that all about? I have pondered it many a time, and believe it may be that, at that very moment, all is well with the world. . . .In our minds eye, we see Lola Nova go to her shelf and choose a book that she will use to express her love for the people she is about to serve. . .Is there anything better in life?
*
*
Lola sent in her photo, promptly, last night. She stated that this is just one of several places that they house their cookbooks. There are also 2 other large bookshelves elsewhere.
*
Sherri B.: Well Lola, what cookbook will you choose if you win?
*
Lola: I would love that Barefoot Contessa, Back to Basics book.
*
Sherri B.: You do not have to choose a book off of the pile in my photo, that was just a few of my books to show you. My fault, I should have been more clear about that...So you can choose whatever you want.
*
Lola: Thanks for the clarification, silly me. I actually almost bought the Barefoot Contessa one before. . .but. . .if I can pick any. . . maybe. . . Last years "Gourmet Today". . . or this one sounds interesting, "Savory Baking, by Mary Cech". . . Really there are too many to know!
*
Sherri B.: Not to fear, there will be plenty of time to ponder this...I think it will not hurt a thing if the winner changes their mind.
*
So we see Lola Nova has several on her wish list. This makes it that much more interesting so you all are invited to do the same.
*
Don't forget to get your entries in as you would not want to miss out on this. Details on contest are here.

Ha, looking at the picture I realize we have a lot of vegetarian cook books, though we are not vegetarian.
I love how you describe the feeling you get when looking at a shelf of cook books!

Thank you Lola Nova for sending in your photo and letting us get a glimpse of some of your cookbooks.
I too have quite a few of the vegetarian selections and find most of them very helpful when I need inspiration, especially the old standbys.

I see that a lot of photos have the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook... am I missing out on a great one?

Thanks for sharing:)
