50 Recipes For Breakfast Crepes – Crepe Recipes To Serve For Breakfast or Brunch (Breakfast Ideas – The Breakfast Recipes Cookbook Collection 15) - Pamela Kazmierczak

My girls love crepes! They will order them for breakfast if it is on the menu somewhere, but I didn't know how to make them. This book was great about providing many different recipes and things to add to the crepes and how to make them and set them aside. I loved that information. I will be trying to make these sometime in the near future.

I've been thinking what to say about my displeasure with this book. It was an okay read for me. Such a hyped book that I did everything possible to get my hands on it for months; giveaways, egalleys and such. To only be disappointed. There's nothing new here for me. It definitely wasn't what I expected in terms of the storyline. Maybe it's my age. I've read a lot of books and many heavy hitters at a young age. It takes a lot to impress me in story and writing. However, both don't have to be great. I'll take a good story with subpar writing or a well written book with just okay plot. Many love this one. It just wasn't for me. Beautiful cover and great publicity with a new up and coming author, I do believe Ms. Bennett is definitely one to watch!

Breakfast in Bed (Innkeepers) by Rochelle Alers
Breakfast in Bed (The Innkeepers) - Rochelle Alers

 

The attraction is as spicy as the backdrop in Rochelle Alers', Breakfast in Bed. Love and fresh starts don't have an age limit. The romance is more mature but still as electric as ever.  New Orleans is a hodgepodge of cultures, suspense and delicious cuisine.  Why not make it the capital of romance as well?

Breakfast, best and first meal of the day
The Around the World Breakfast Cookbook:... The Around the World Breakfast Cookbook: 30 Incredible Breakfast Dishes from All Corners of the Globe - Taste the World with These Delicious Recipes From 30 Diverse Countries - Gordon Rock

I love cookbooks, and so does my youngest. We will read through them and find things we want to try and make. My issue that I ran into was that the author would list something, using the country's name for it, and not put a note about what other names it might be called. So I would try to find out what something was and if I could have that item and just become frustrated with the recipe. I only found 2 that I really wanted to try. It was a free Amazon Kindle book, so that helped.

Reading progress update: I've read 67%.
Breakfast in Bed (The Innkeepers) - Rochelle Alers

I want Gage! Can I find a human with his character traits? Tonya and Gage's relationship is realistic, mature and slow (for romance novel). So nice to revisit the ladies friendship and to read about all the yummy Louisiana Cuisine. I'm a foodie and need to visit The Big Easy in the near future.
