Bills Food
Bills Food

busyreading..., January 27, 2008

Its easy enough anymore to search for and download recipes from the internet. It works, and there are a lot of options from which to choose. However, I like to hold a cookbook in my hands, flip through the pages and muse about what I might try next. Bills Food is a beautiful cookbook; from the feel of the thick quality paper to the organization of recipes into time of day sections - breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. Each recipe is accompanied by a full page color picture, blurring the distinction between art and information. At the same time, the recipes themselves are easy to follow (with no need for fancy equipment) rendering dishes that look and taste amazing. They will think you are taking a cooking class!

(Some of my favorites: Open-faced feta and leek omelet, Crepes with ricotta filling and bitter orange sauce, Spicy roast pumpkin, feta and olive salad, and of course, White chocolate cheesecake!)

Sweetness in the Belly by Camilla Gibb
Sweetness in the Belly

Well written with vivid images. A story of a woman in search of herself and of meaning in her life. Multicultural. Multidimensional. A love story, filled with complex relationships between the characters, particularly between the women. Recommend it highly.
