Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui by Karen Kingston
Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui

Lucy Little, September 26, 2010

I love this book. So many books about decluttering are practical, but avoid some of the emotional pitfalls involved. This book gives motivating reasons to declutter. Hard to say if all the good things will come true if the clutter is cleared, but it certainly gives me emotional strength to try! Having never thought about the "energy" attached to clutter, this book certainly presents ideas about looking at stuff in a new light.

Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
Tortilla Flat

Lucy Little, January 23, 2010

I read Steinbeck as required in high school and college and recently became reinterested in his work. He has such a way with describing people and their relationships. Tortilla Flat is no exception. It's not a book where everyone lives happily ever after, but each character remains true to himself throughout. No wonder why his works are considered classics.

Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids Favorite Meals by Missy Chase Lapine
Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids Favorite Meals

Lucy Little, January 17, 2010

I bought this and "Sneaky Chef to the Rescue" with no regrets. I'm now able to "sneak" pureed vegetables into foods that my kids will eat. My kids started out as good eaters, but lost track along the way. This book helps me to give them some vegetables while avoiding conflict. Highly recommend.

The Sneaky Chef to the Rescue: 101 All-New Recipes and

Lucy Little, January 17, 2010

This and the orginal Sneaky Chef cookbook are great. I've tried all the tricks to get my kids to eat better. Including starting them off with healthy habits as babies. At age three, my older child announced, "I don't eat vegetables anymore." Now, I can add some healthy purees to their food and they actually haven't figured it out.

44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall-Smith
44 Scotland Street

Lucy Little, January 15, 2010

Interesting book. Having minimal knowledge of Scotland, some of the references went over my head, but still enjoyable. This was originally published in serial form, so each section follows a character through daily events as well as struggles. It all manages to flow together.
