The lucky winner of Joanne Fluke’s “Lake Eden Cookbook” is Adopting James! Congratulations and if you can email me where you would like this sent I will take it to Fed-Ex Friday, and let you know it is on the way. And the reason I need to read the book shown below is because I did not realize that if I was not using wordpress.org I could not communicate via email through wordpress.com. So, I apologize for my error there and if you could send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org, I will send you the book. This is MY email address that I opened this summer to sell my motorcycle on Craigslist. Yes, I rode a motorcycle 🙂 It was pretty too! If you are not comfortable doing this, leave a comment here, I completely understand, and as soon as I flip my 2 blogs over to wordpress.org, which will be soon, you can communicate with me that way and feel more secure. I will hold the book for you.
Sooooo, the book I should have read 4 months ago when it showed up at my door?
YEP. WordPress for Dummies. I have started it numerous times, thumbed through different chapters, but never really read it because from what I could see, all of the fun stuff can only be done when you use wordpress.org. So I would just read it when I switched to that.
I should have read it when I got the book! I will be reading it and doing some improvements this weekend, and hopefully moving everything over to the wordpress.org system.
Happy Reading, and Happy It Is Almost Friday (Even if it is snowing here!)
This is it! The last chance to get this book sent to you 🙂 I will draw names tomorrow of everyone following this blog, and let the winner know this book will be on the way.
This edition is more recipes and less story, but by just briefly flipping through my copy, it looks like the story may be Hanna Swensen reminiscing about past cases she has solved.
Some of the recipes include:
Cream Cheese Puffs, Popovers, Mango bread, Key Lime Pie, Cashew Crisps, Heavenly Eggnog Cookies, Grilled Cream Cheese Sandwiches, and I could go on forever! I am planning on trying out one recipe a week (planning, and hoping I can actually get it done!) and will share the results with you, good, bad, or ugly 🙂 This book is full of recipes that are just in time for the upcoming holiday season.
Next up is me finding a book to read! Any suggestions? I am about to pull a book of the shelf that I have read numerous times already.
Not only did I find one, but I got two! Which means you have a chance to get this book sent to you, for free! What could be better than that? You just need to do two things.
1) Follow this blog
2) Post a comment of your favorite book and the author
That’s it! What could be more easy, right? I am in desperate need of some new books to read, and I want to read some books that you have enjoyed.
If you aren’t familiar with Joanne Fluke’s series, here is a quick run-down: The Heroine of the story is Hannah Swensen, owner of The Cookie Jar and detective in the making. She is apparently the only person in the town of Lake Eden, Minnesota that is capable of solving the numerous murders that seem to happen in this small town. Her overbearing but endearing mother is full of quips that will have you laughing, and Hannah’s continuous problem of juggling two boyfriends (in the cleanest, G-rated way possible) makes for a great read without being heavy in drama. A little cheesy (no pun intended)? Yes. But her books are an easy read with descriptions of the scenery as well as recipes that will have you feeling like you are sitting in The Cookie Jar with a fresh-out-of-the-oven-cookie from Hannah herself!
This book is loaded with recipes from numerous different stories, with very minimal back information about Hannah herself. With the upcoming Holiday season upon us, I thought this would be a great surprise for someone, or a gift for a dear one if this isn’t your normal type of read. And who knows? It may just have you looking for the next Joanne Fluke book! From Heavenly Eggnog Cookies to Razzle Dazzle Champagne Cocktails, there is something in here for everyone.
So that’s it! Follow this blog, and give me a book and author 🙂 I am looking forward to reading what you enjoy reading! I will gather all the names on Thursday, and draw one and let you know who the lucky reader is. Good Luck! 🙂
