Holiday Cookies
Holiday Cookies: Showstopping Recipes to Sweeten the Season - Elisabet der Nederlanden

This has some amazing pictures for each recipe. While flipping through the book I really wanted... Pie!?!? and cookies... but I have really been wanting a chocolate cream pie. Never got the pie, but did make some cookies using one of these recipes. Some of the best cookies I have ever eaten.

 

In this you will find almost every holiday cookie recipe you can think of. The directions are easy to follow, and from the ones I tested the ingredient measurements are spot on, as are the cook times and temps.

 

In the back there is a template for a gingerbread house. I really feel it will come in handy when Christmas comes around. Hopefully this years attempt will turn out and I won't end up at the store buying a prepaid kit and trying to pass it off as homemade. Also, this very much reminded me of something I would expect Martha Stewart to publish, that is a compliment because I consider that woman the queen of making the season festive and yummy.

 

ELISABET DER NEDERLANDEN is a passionate professional baker and a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. She has worked as a food stylist and professional recipe developer/tester for commercial, advertising, and packaging projects. In addition, she has managed recipe testing and food styling for more than 30 cookbooks.

Summer Heat: A Steamy Romance Collection
Summer Heat: A Steamy Romance Collection (Seasonal Shenanigans) - Caitlyn Lynch,Abbigail Clark,Annika Steele,Ariel Bishop,Ava Bari,Avery J. Heath,Christina Rose Andrews,Cynthia Miller,Gwen Marshall,Líadáin Douglas,Livvy Ward,Moxie Rivers,Sera Taíno,Siobhan Kearney,T.D. Crawls,Tally Bane,Tricia Ramey
Summer Heat is a collection of short and steamy romances, absolutely perfect for the beach or when you are stuck in an airport! Just make sure you have some water with you as you might need to cool down. Every story is different, ranging from contemporary, to paranormal, to rock stars and the military. In my opinion, there is literally something here for everyone.
 
All of the stories flow, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. There is simply no story that I felt was a 'filler', and far too many to choose just one favourite! Absolutely recommended by me - for that perfect summer read; or if you want to remember those hot, halcyon days, when it is cold outside.

I love the system for my public library -- but, I fo wish they would let you make more than one wishlist/list.  *shrugs* I'm working around it by removing the surfeit of eventually rearing cookbooks to shelves here on booklikes to separate them from novels I wishlisted.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Ice Gods by Helen Scott Taylor
Ice Gods - Helen Scott Taylor
This is a book that I was hoping I would enjoy as I love reading about mythology of old Gods, but especially Celtic and Norse ones. This book did not disappoint!!! I liked how the story was laid out, it was very well written and I liked how the characters interacted. I wasn't let down on the mythology side of it either but what it did do was make me want to go and read some more to get some background information on the characters in this book. Will definitely be on the look out for more of her books.
 
* Verified Purchase ~ November 2012 *
