My ' Babies ' Arrived Today !

Yay yay.... *HAPPILY DANCING on tip toes *  babies  books arrived today !  I ordered three books from Book Depository on the 8th January 2011 and two of them arrived today....exactly 2 weeks !  My new year present for myself , for a whooping USD120 ( RM360 ) I bought three cookbooks ! Hahaha ... I am so happy, I am going to sleep with them tonight!  I have been wanting to get Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To Yours two years ago and now finally I made up my mind to rightfully own this book.

I ordered from Book Depository these books to start the year rolling........:p :p  * someone will soon lecture me on this , but I just have to have them :)

               1) Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan

               2) The Fundamental Techniques of Classic Pastry Arts by International Culinary Center and Judith Choate

              3) The Bread Baker's Apprentice: Mastering the Art of Extraordinary Bread by Peter Reinhart and Ron Manville

You cannot imagine how happy I am today when I see these two parcels waiting for me to open them when I came home from work :)  And the other person eagerly waiting for me to open the parcels is none other than a book lover, Piggy Jo LOL!  She is excited when she sees new books. She will hold it and smell it and mmmm I love the smell of new books too!   I know for sure I will be hugging my ' Babies ' to sleep tonight  LOL!

  4. Totally get what you mean by the smell of new books! Can't wait to see what you make from these babies now ;). I can just imagine you going to bed hugging your books. My mom sometimes has all her books surrounding her it's almost ridiculous lol.

  5. Hey Elin. I truly understand the feeling of getting our fav cookbooks! Mine are from Taiwan especially. I really hope that I can get some soon !!

  6. Ooooo....enjoy your books. Happy cooking.baking - looking forward to your posts.

  7. I saw the 2nd book recomended by Tartelette. And Pei-Lin has the 1st and 3rd book, and she told me how good these books are.
    Who dares to lecture you? Ask that person not to eat anything made from these books. Hahahaha.

  8. Wahhhhh!! im sooo jealous! WHat is book depository? Id love to peep to see what they have there. Could you give us the website? PLEASE? :)))

    Have fun browsing through them. If you have any questions to ask , shoot away :)))

  10. Envy of your new books!!! drool...! I'm so glad to find a cookbook addict like me. haha!

    Btw, I don't have Around My French Table. It is not available in TW and getting "ang moh" cooking ingredients here is difficult too. So I have no intention of getting it yet. Sorry that I won't be able to tell you if there's any repeated recipes or not.

    Gong Xi Fa Cai in advance! I'll be celebrating CNY in Penang and Singapore. yippie! :-)
