"NEW" Dollar Tree Cookbooks To Check Out

I love to buy cookbooks.  When I buy them I am excited and full of hope, that I will actually make some of the recipes in them. I don't always use them, so sometimes it is hard justifying paying a lot of money on a book.  I don't know if you have realized it or not, but the Dollar Tree has a book section that I check every single time I am in the store.  You won't believe some of the amazing deals you may find.    Today I am going to share the new cookbooks that I have are new to my store this week.  Each store is a little bit different but most stores get many of the same titles.  

The Science of Skinny Cookbook by Dee McCaffrey  List price on this  book is $19.99.  Prices for the book online are on  Amazon $15.70, and Barnes and Noble $17.99. In this book you will find 175 whole food recipes.  There are not pictures with every recipe, but several pages ofcolor pictures in the middle of the book.  I wrote down some of the recipes that caught my eye as I scanned through the book, they are Apricot Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Pecans, Broccoli in Orange Sauce and Cherry Vanilla Smoothies. 

75 Flowers for Cake Decorators by Helen Penman List price on this book is $21.99.   Prices for the book online are $8.77 (ebay) and $9.38 (Walmart) both resale. The byline for this book is A beautiful collection of easy to make floral toppers for cakes and cupcakes. I was blown away by this book! There were beautiful pictures and directions for all 75 different flowers that arrange from easy to advanced.  There were so many flowers that I would love to try and make, and some of my favorites were the roses, orchids and lilies. 

Spiralizer Skinny by Vicky Ushakova and Rami Abramov  List price on this book is $19.99. Prices that I found online are $7.99 for Kindle and Barnes and Noble Ebook. The byline on this book is lose weight with easy low carb spiralizer recipes.  I decided to share this book in a separate pic because I found a spiral slicer at Aldi this week which is my other favorite store for $6.99.  Buying the two together would make a great gift idea.  The recipes that caught my eye that I really want to try are the California Chicken Salad,  Chicken and Broccoli Bake,  Chicken Parm Zoodles, and Bacon Cheddar Zucchini Fritters 


Charlie Palmers American Fare by Charlie Palmers (an award winning chef and who owns several restaurants) List price on this book is $40.00 (pictured)   The prices I found online are $19.99 for Kindle and Barnes and Noble ebook, and $4.83 resale.   This books is really big, and has more than 100 recipes.  Since it is only $1 at the Dollar Tree that is like paying only a penny for each recipe.  If you want to cook like a chef, then you will want to check this book out.  It would definitely make a great gift.   Some of the recipes that caught my eye are Pork Chops with Rum Maple BBQ Sauce and Italian Style Grilled Cheese and many more. 

Dairy Free Delicious by Katy Salter  List price for this book is  $23.95. The price I found online is $13.40 on Amazon.  Katy wrote this book because she found out she was lactose intolerant while working at a food magazine.   I personally love dairy, but I have a couple of friends who are also lactose intolerant so I could use this book to make things for them.  There  are pictures for many of the recipes which do not look complicated.  Some of the recipes that caught my eye are Chocolate Truffles, Brownies and several breakfast recipes  


Impatient Foodie by Elettra Wiedemann  List price on this book is $29.99. The price I found online for this book is $14.99 on seveal sites for the ebook version.  The byline on this book is 100 delicious recipes for a hectic, time-starved world.  There are pictures for almost all of the recipes. I admit to not being a foodie.  I have a simple almost child like palate. I'm not picky, but tend to eat easy to make food. This book makes fancy looking foods in a simple way, so I thought I would give it a try.   Some of the recipes in this book that caught my eye are tomato soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons, Apple Brie Bacon Grilled Cheese, Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread Pudding and Arugula Watermelon Salad.  

Halloween Treats b Annie Rigg  List price on this book $16.95 The prices I found online for this book are $4.69 used on Ebay and $11.95 on Amazon.   The byline on this book says Simply Spooky Recipes for Ghoulish Sweet Treats.  There are pictures of all the recipes most of which are cookies, cakes and sweet treats.   The recipes that caught my eye are Brainball Clusters, Sugar Rats and Pumpkin Pies.   This is a fun book especially if you love Halloween and have Halloween parties.  

WOW!!  I just added up the list prices on my calculator.  If I bought all the books at their list price the amount I would pay would be $172.86 (before tax)..  The amount I actually paid... only $7!!! 

Not all Dollar Trees get the same books at the same time, but if any of these books sound interesting definitely check the book section of your local store.  There are many other smaller paperback cookbooks out right now as well.
