My Sweet Mexico: Recipes for Authentic Pastries, Breads, Candies, Beverages, and Frozen Treats by Fany Gerson
My Sweet Mexico: Recipes for Authentic Pastries, Breads, Candies, Beverages, and Frozen Treats

eddyrobey, January 1, 2012

My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson is both amusing and very useful. Although most people in the U. S. A. are familiar with a few Mexican savory dishes, it is rare to see any of the many desserts which are so popular in that country. Of particular interest are the various ways of using fruits and vegetables for sweets almost unknown here. An example is the recipe for candied limes stuffed with coconut, a treat available everywhere in Mexico, and simple to prepare, but never seen North of the border, except in the homes of those who know that candies can come in many flavors. There are historical anecdotes on each category and individual recipes within it. The recipes are clearly written, and there is a section to help with ingredients. This is a loving introduction to wonderful treats, most of which can be made by anyone with a sense of adventure.

Authentic recipes, clearly written: for wonderful desserts. Many of these sweets are perfect for holiday gift-giving. Most of the ingredients are readily available, and the few exotic ones can be ordered by mail. There is nothing as memorable as homemade treats, and these will be a new experience for many who try them.

The Waxman Report: How Congress Really Works by Henry Waxman
The Waxman Report: How Congress Really Works

eddyrobey, January 1, 2011

This was a really interesting and entertaining read. It's a bit self-serving, but less so than most political memoirs. The style is direct, and not too wordy. Waxman gives plenty of behind the scenes information, yet avoids the tawdry. I enjoyed it.
