I'm Just Here for More Food: Food X Mixing + Heat = Baking by Alton Brown
I'm Just Here for More Food: Food X Mixing + Heat = Baking

michellerpower, February 14, 2010

I'm a fairly inexperienced baker - before I got this book, the only thing I'd made from scratch was chocolate chip cookies. I've made three things from this book so for - the fudge cake, the brownies, and, yes, the chocolate chip cookies - and every single time I've had amazing results. The directions are so clear that even when the procedure is unfamiliar to me, if I just follow them closely, it works. Plus, it's really cool to learn what different ingredients do and how they do it. "I'm Just Here for More Food" is easy to use and fun to read. I love Alton's show, and I love this book!

Tattoo Machine: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink by Jeff Johnson
Tattoo Machine: Tall Tales, True Stories, and My Life in Ink

michellerpower, October 17, 2009

If Tony Bourdain had been a tattoo artist instead of a chef, this is the book he might have written. I've been tattooed all over Portland (including twice at Sea Tramp, though not by the author), and I all but devoured this book. I even learned a few things about tattooing (according to Jeff, ALL tattoo ink is vegan), and I've been a tattoo devotee for over 15 years. This book is a must-read for just about anyone who ever wanders off the beaten path - especially if they're wandering into a tattoo studio.
