Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub

A book about food from two self proclaimed fat men, how can you go wrong?  With so many books out there about what you should and should not eat, it was refreshing to read from the perspective that food is not evil.  These two men do an excellent job of bringing to life the joy of eating.  They proclaim the goodness of so many social events that the majority of dieting Americans miss out on.  This is a definite invitation to change the way that you view food, but it is also a comical look at the things we do eat. 
There are a few recipes included, the biscuits were delicious and simple to make.  I would have liked to see more of their favorite recipes, but was pleased to discover their restaurant choices along with rules for determining a good restaurant and wait staff.
I was impressed to see my home state of South Carolina getting three of their food festivals into this short work.  I know my mom enjoys the Grits Festival in St. George and may have to plan a trip home to partake one of these years.  And the Hatch Festival has been on our personal to-do list for awhile.
This book was enjoyable, if you like food or if you want to like food but haven’t figured out how to yet.

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
