Cookbooks Available for Purchase

Some people may recall me saying that I don’t sell my own books because I really can’t sell them any cheaper than Amazon and other booksellers. However when I was cleaning out my garage recently I found I have several boxes of books just sitting around. So if anyone would like to get a copy directly from me, I can send you one for $13, including shipping, which is about the same as the price of the book itself other places.
I’ll even sign it .. :)

There are a limited number of all 7 titles, listed below, available on a first come basis. There are a couple of options for payment. You can send me a check or money order to:

Dick Logue
7855 Evarie Drive
La Plata, MD 20646

Or you can drop me an email to arrange payment or send a PayPal payment to

Make sure you include your address and  that you specify which book you want.

I’ll be happy to check into the cost of shipping outside the United States, but you will probably find that if you have an Amazon site for your country you can get them cheaper that way.

Reader Comments from Newsletter

I had a couple of good comments from people about the difficulty in finding low sodium buttermilk. 

Susan wrote “You mentioned that you cannot find low sodium buttermilk in you area. Neither can I, so I have successfully used plain yogurt in place of buttermilk for many recipes. To make the yogurt more like buttermilk in consistency, just just beat it with a whisk until it becomes more like a liquid than a solid. You may need to use just a little more yogurt than buttermilk.”

And in a similar vein a different Susan suggested “I prefer using plain Greek style yogurt as a substitute for buttermilk in pancakes. They may need a little water if the batter is too thick but they come out amzingly light and fluffy. Leftover pancakes are perfect for reheating in a toaster and great as a dessert treat with fruit, fresh or frozen.”  I’ve never tried Greek style yogurt, but my daughter likes it.  It does appear to have less sodium than regular yogurt, so I may have to pick some up.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Finally David said “We are unable to get reduced sodium buttermilk so I have been using Bob’s Red Mill buttermilk powder which can be made up to low sodium (85mgm/cup).” I hadn’t been aware of this product, but it does sound like a good alternative.  The Saco brand buttermilk powder I can find locally has 160mg per cup, so it’s not a big savings over the real stuff.
