REBOOT: What I’ve Been Reading

Time for reading slowed considerably for me this last year. It didn’t stop entirely, though, and I’ve read quite a bit since early summer.

You know, of course, how important I believe it is that you, and I, spend some time reading. These wise words echo often in my mind:

“Read, read, read! Use the […]

America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook Review

It’s been a long, long time since I’ve had a general, all-purpose cookbook that I’ve absolutely loved. That long wait makes this find all the sweeter!

(If you click on the links below, and then make a purchase, some of them may put a few pennies into my pocket. Of course, there is […]

A Little Light Reading

As many of you know, I’m a rather eclectic reader, and I like to have three or four books, from different genre, going at the same time. I take my time through most non-fiction books, but given the right circumstances time-wise, I’ll plow right through a novel! There’s nothing like turning page after page of […]

This Isn’t Your Mom’s Slow Cooker Cookbook

A little more than a year ago, my daughter, Corin, gave me a sweet gift basket filled with all sorts of goodies. It was meant as a wedding recovery gift for the days right after Dani’s December 29 wedding. Included in the basket was a new-to-me crockpot cookbook. That cookbook has totally changed the way […]

Winter Solstice – Perfect Fireside Reading

Last summer, it was all about the books that I could take to the ballpark with me. The summer before that, it was beach reading. I’ve never been one to think much about a book in light of it being just right for reading by the fire in the midst of winter, but I’ve just […]

Hexie Madness!

In the last week, we’ve celebrated Copper’s birthday with all of our kids and grandkids here at the same time, signed all of the paperwork for the financing of the new kitchen, checked out estimates to repair my vehicle, had a whole bunch of maintenance done on that same car, took William (my social butterfly) […]

More Great Summer Reads

In the last week, I’ve finished three more books from my Summer Reading List. I’ve now read half of the books from that list, and, so far, I’ve enjoyed everyone one of them. You can read my brief reviews of the first three books here.

The three books listed below are all […]

Great Summer Reading Choices

It turns out, I’ve made some great choices for my summer reading this year. I’ve finished three of the dozen books on my list, and I’m well into two others. There’s not been a clunker in the bunch! (All book links below are Amazon affiliate links.)

Jesus Loves Me This I Know

I’ve been trying to write a review of this book for more than a week. I loved the book. I recommended it over and over again (to the same friend), and yet, I couldn’t find the words to write the review.

Then it dawned on me. The Lord had shown me so much through the […]
