Farmstead Feast: Winter: Delicious, in-season recipes by the author of The Weekend Homesteader by Anna Hess

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I got this book for free at Amazon. I always enjoyed reading cookbooks and learning about new ways to cook a variety of food. Anna Hess' book caught my attention because it sounded very natural and healthy.... and it is! I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but I am planning to do so as soon as the farmer's market re-opens in my town. Cooking with fresh vegetables is perfect to put these recipes to the test. I am looking forward to it!

Review: The Birth of Venus


The Birth of Venus
The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



My friend Lynn suggested this book to me and I am so thankful! This was such an enjoyable read. I love history and I love art. Sarah Dunant has weaved an incredibly rich story around a young woman's life and struggles in Florence in the 15th century. Alessandra's story is artfully interwoven with historical events to create a fascinating retelling of Renaissance Italy. A must read!

Review: The Dirty Parts of the Bible


The Dirty Parts of the Bible
The Dirty Parts of the Bible by Sam Torode

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This was a fun read! The characters were all very interesting and amusing in each their own way. When I started I thought I was going to be put off by the religious flavour, but without it, this story would not stand a chance.

Review: 28 Days of Clean Eating: The Healthy Way to Kick Dieting Forever


28 Days of Clean Eating: The Healthy Way to Kick Dieting Forever
28 Days of Clean Eating: The Healthy Way to Kick Dieting Forever by Sonoma Press

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This book is filled with great recipes and health recommendations. Although the author offers a full menu for four weeks, I find it difficult to stick to the regiment because of my busy work and family schedule. If I was cooking only for myself; I think I could do it. Nevertheless, this is a complete book for healthy eating and definitely worth reading.
