A Treasured Find at the Ventura Flea Market

on September 30, 2009

My Mother-in-Law always finds those gifts that make one’s day, and on Sunday, she did just that.  Having been sick with the flu all weekend, she brought over a paper bag of goodies that she found at the Ventura Flea Market – it was a bag of recipe books.  What a way to perk me up.  Maya and I sat on the couch and went through the bag.  There were two William Sonoma cookbooks (Pasta and Brunch).  There was one on Indian cooking (a large picture book) and then, there was…Chocolate and Zucchini  by Chlotilde Dusoulier.  Chocolate and Zucchini is a blog that I have just fallen in love with.  It is fun, adventurous, and TASTY.  Finding that book in the brown paper bag was serendipitous – I feel invigorated to cook, and am not afraid to change recipes around to suit my tastes…after all, isnt’ t the fun in cooking.
