Back to School Book Week: Cookbooks

Today’s theme for Back to School Book Week is “Cookbooks.”  I have a lot of favorites (you know I’ve talked about my can’t-live-without bread machine cookbook before) but in terms of my most recent love? That would have to be this one: Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison.  We’re not vegetarians, but I’ve been […]

Back to School Book Week: Craft Books

I hope you’ll forgive me for posting twice today, but Vintage Chica Eren had a fun idea that I wanted to get in on, and it means a-post-a-day for the next five days.  This book junkie just couldn’t resist. So here’s the deal – in honor of school starting up again (just over a week […]
