Easy Chinese Recipes: Family Favorites from Dim Sum to Kung Pao by Bee Yinn Low
Easy Chinese Recipes: Family Favorites from Dim Sum to Kung Pao

laurab83, August 5, 2012

I have been making chinese food since I was about 15 years old. I have used many cookbooks and had moderate success with good tasting chinese food. I just made beef with broccoli and Sichuan green beans and it was far and away the best I have ever made. I wouldn't say that it is "easy" making chinese food. You have to have the timing just right and be able to juggle two dishes in two woks but the result was fabulous. I knew from Bee Yinn Low's descriptions that we have similar tastes..I really appreciate this book and look forward to trying out the other recipes!

The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement by David Brooks
The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement

laurab83, August 4, 2012

It has been a few weeks since I finished The Social
Animal and I am still thinking about it. David Brooks did a marvelous job combining the fictional account of two families and studies about how people interact, the way they learn, the conditions that tend to make them successful and their relationships to each other. It was a compelling read. My 19 year old son enjoyed it as well.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

This story is really amazing. My grandfather was in WWII but would never talk of his experiences. This is a way for me to learn about the war from one person's incredible story.

The Red Pyramid: Kane Chronicles #1 by Rick Riordan
The Red Pyramid: Kane Chronicles #1

The Red Pyramid is a fun read. It has humor, adventure, magic and a wonderful cast of Egyptian characters. If you liked the Percy Jackson series you will enjoy this one as well. I am looking forward to the next book!

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

laurab83, January 1, 2010

I loved this compelling story of a teenager that seemed so real to me that I hated for the story to end. I loved this book and I hope everyone gets a chance to read it.
