What's Cooking?

Cookbooks are very popular items.  Not surprising, considering the numerous shows on television such as the Food Network, American's Test Kitchen, Iron Chef, Yan Can Cook,  Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Barefoot Contessa, etc., etc., etc.   My personal favorite is America's Test Kitchen, the televison show and the cookbooks.  Check out our special display of cookbooks and see if you get a little more excited about being in the kitchen.

And the Winner is?

Charlotte Bulcken won the $50.00 Amazon.com gift card at Parker Williams Branch for her participation in the 2010 Adult Summer Reading Program, ReaderNation.  Charlotte said it was her daughter, an avid reader, who told her to register.

When asked what she will do with the card, Charlotte stated "Since I don't know anything about computers, I'm going to get one of the kids to help me find out what's available (on Amazon.com).  Then I'll get something for myself or a gift for somebody else."
