Odd things can happen when you're not really book shopping, but you happen to be in a bookstore. Daughter had some gift certificates that were burning a hole in her pocket. Off we went to the bookstore. Now remember, I have about 200 books waiting to be read, so I had no intention of buy another book. That is till we happened onto the rack with clearance books at $1.00. That destroyed my resolve.
Daughter seclected Cupcake by Rachel Cohn and then I saw Emma's Table by Philip Galanes. I picked it up solely on the basis that it had cupcakes on the cover. Time will tell whether it was a good choice.
Don't you love my new socks. They are from a company called Sock it To Me.
As much enjoyment as I get from cooking, baking, and trying new recipes, there is the other side. I need to watch that intake and ensure that I am active enough. My sister has challenged me to a race and I know that I need to lose quite a bit of weight before race day. Hopefully this stylish little book from Andrews McMeel will be of help. Its the pocket posh complete calorie counter. I have bought similar books in the past, but their covers are so obvious, that they have never left my kitchen. This one is clearly meant to travel with you.
When you remove the title band, you are left with a cool looking book with an elastic closure.
I'm looking forward to the publication of their Pocket Posh Cocktail book due out in September 2011.
