OATrageous Oatmeals. Kathy Hester. Book Review

1st of October, 2014

9781624140747

http://www.amazon.com/OATrageous-Oatmeals-Surprising-Plant-Based-Heart-Healthy/dp/1624140742 Bravo to Kathy Hester for her delightful new Cookbook OATrageous Oatmeals. The title alone is a great promise, a promise Kathy Hester keeps throughout the book. Beside the obvious OATrageous pun, I do love the tweaking of oatmeal, that little “s” at the end propels oatmeal from a humble...

Taste-of-Beirut-Levana-Cooks

http://www.amazon.com/Taste-Beirut-Delicious-Lebanese-Contemporary/dp/0757317707 After regaling us these past several years with her blog, Taste of Beirut, Joumana Accad has recently published a cookbook of her favorite native Lebanese dishes in a book also named Taste of Beirut.

Food-Family-and-tradition-levana-cooks

I can only contemplate...

365 Vegan Smoothies Book Review

17th of July, 2014

No Knead Bread Book. The New Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg.

The New Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. Zoe Francois and Jeff Hertzberg:  http://amzn.to/1of8SgA I have a good problem with Zoe François: I don’t mind her radiant smile and her luminous curls. I don’t even mind that she is always photographed in a skimpy t-shirt, even though she lives in...

A Biography of Julia Child, by Bob Spitz

Just finished reading Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child, written by author and biographer extraordinaire Bob Spitz. Let me start with my – very few – gripes, then we’ll move on to the good stuff. I did say Ouf! when I was done, not because I didn’t love it....
