Peter Pauper Series...Festive

And so the end is near...the end of the year and the end of my Peter Pauper Press collection. Many are in a festive mood, looking forward to a new beginning in 2012. With that in mind, I bring you what I refer to as the Festive series.
The Merriam Webster dictionary defines festive as, "of, relating to, or suitable for a feast." Perfect!

Four of these cookbooks were published in the sixties--a festive (and restive) era, indeed.
Looking more closely at this collection than I have in several years, I'm noticing a trend in the use of color...lots of red, gold, magenta, and teal.

One can never have too many cookie and dessert cookbooks, can they?

Everything from bouillabaisse to fish pudding (no, it doesn't belong with the desserts) in here.

Not too sure why the Hindu deity shares space with Creole Jambalaya...
The final cookbook! Larger than the rest and probably one of the first in the series, published in 1951.

I hope all of my followers, as well as any others who've happened by, have a festive New Year's Eve and that you will stop by again in 2012.
