I appreciate simple cooking tips; for instance in her icing for sugar cookies, Martha Stewart adds a few drops of lemon juice.
Her book Entertaining is a classic and includes a "Valentine's Day Dinner for Two,"
featuring heart-shaped sugar cookies for dessert.
Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day from The Cook's Bookcase!

Here’s the link to former Gourmet editor-in-chief Ruth Reichl's blog,
which featured the Cook's Bookcase in her December 17, 2013 post.
As she says, "I appreciate the quirkiness of the collection.
And, I might add, the fairness of the prices."
