Delicious!

Vibrant India, by Chitra Agrawal, is a beautifully designed cookbook that informs the reader about home cooked vegetarian foods from Southern India. I appreciate how the author explains and describes the various spices common in her recipes; it helps the novice cook understand the spices before attempting any of the dishes. Most of the recipes do…

Yes it is!

I love how the title of this book, “Is the Bible Good for Women”, really draws the reader in. I had a friend see this book on my kitchen table and wonder what it was about. I plan to lend it to her next. I think I also chose this book because the title was…

Lovely & Informative Postcards

Maybe it’s because I’m an animal person, but I LOVE these postcards. Each animal featured has a cute drawing and a few informative tidbits. You could easily add some color to the postcard with a marker or colored pencil before sending it out which would make your recipient all the happier! The postcards are divided…

Eating Beautifully In My Future

Eat Beautiful by Wendy Rowe is, for lack of a better word, a beautiful book. It is educational, practical and perfectly organized. From the foreword by Sienna Miller to each recipe, broken down by season, the books organization makes it easy for a person to pick it up and gain useful information in a short…

Trust Your Inner GPS

The first habit changing mantra I have chosen to put into practice is this one: trust your inner GPS. I love the layout of this book, Habit Changers. The first twelve pages of the book outlines how mantras can work, how the author realized their effectiveness, and how to put them into practice in your…

Love in Amish Country- Short but Sweet

An emotional tale that will keep you turning the page. The Angel of Forest Hill is a short, but sweet read that you could easily finish in a couple of hours. It’s also perfect for this time of year because it is primarily based at Christmas time. The characters are interesting and the author makes…

Color Away Stress

This was a different coloring book– most books don’t have words to color but I thought this was a neat concept. I like how the book maintains the same pattern with tidbits about David Bowie on one page and photos on the other page. I especially like the David Bowie lightning bolt page. This book…

Verses Worth Memorizing

I have never been one to really memorize verses. Although there are many verses that I find great value in and love to hear, I have just never taken the time to do this. I love how this devotional is laid out though, it makes it super easy to begin my memorization of encouraging and…

Plain, but healthful

A plain cookbook, but one that seems to hold some good recipes. I am used to seeing a recipe book with photographs of nearly every recipe, but this book is plain on the inside. Even though there aren’t photos of every dish, there is good content within. The recipes seemed healthful and nutritious. I cannot wait to try…

Complicated Book

The London Cookbook, while it is a beautiful cookbook about a unique city, is full of complicated recipes. The photos were very beautiful and the recipes sounded good, but I didn’t have most of the ingredients they called for and I’m not even sure where I would buy them. The book’s description made it sound like…

“The Most Important Book of the Day”

I thoroughly agree with John Currance that Big Bad Breakfast is the most important book of the day. Maybe I’m partial because breakfast has always been my favorite meal, but this book is creative and holds countless delicious recipes. The photographs of almost every recipe in the book made my mouth water, and the The…

Pass the “Vittals”

Victuals by Ronni Lundi is a picturesque book that takes you straight into the heart of Appalachia and serves you the best fresh home- cooking you’ll find. Almost every page is beautifully illustrated, and if it doesn’t have an illustration on it, it has a story that makes you feel like you are in the…
