Half Price Books has been an amazing source for cookbooks. Somehow there are always good finds, whether semi-recent releases or books of a certain vintage. I always want to leave bookmarks or post-its sticking out of some books saying, “BUY THIS ONE!!” And while sometimes you know why books end up on the clearance shelf — 80s microwave cooking, anyone? — others are a mystery. The El Paso Chile Company’s Texas Border Cookbook — was one of those mysteries, but the recipe for masa biscuits alone made it a bargain at twice the price.
