Interesting if you are a fan.
The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook - Dann... The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook - Danny Bowien,Chris Ying

Can't remember what drove me to get this book but it sounded intriguing. I've never been to the Mission Chinese restaurants but I enjoy the stories of cooks, chefs, etc. and thought it might be a good read.

 

Part-cookbook, part biography, part interview with Danny Bowien, Chris Ying and some of the people they've worked with, etc. the book itself is trying to be too much of everything without being any one thing. I think I was under the impression it was more of a cookbook/biography of Mission Chinese itself (as in the restaurant but not necessarily the people behind it).

 

There are some really gorgeous pictures (the book itself also has a nice picture of a dish on the front cover) but I wouldn't be compelled to make any of the recipes since I am not the type to put in that effort and would trust the experts a lot more. I also wasn't all that interested in either of Danny or Chris (or anyone else's!) stories in the book. 

 

Based on Yelp reviews it seems to be they found some sort of way to make Americanized Chinese food/Americanized Asian fusion food, etc. into a "thing" which is odd because it's not a new concept.

 

As you can tell, I don't get the hype. Skip it unless you really like the concept or like cookbooks.

Awesome Quick Read
Mission Control - Desiree Holt

Mission Control by Desiree Holt is a fantastic quick read, a great choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms Holt has penned a well-written book and filled it with amazing characters.  Krista and Mason's story is full of action, suspense, humor and smokin' hot sexy bits.  I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Desiree Holt.  Mission Control is book 2 of the Omega Team Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I purchased a copy of this book at a book signing.

The Mission of Addition
The Mission of Addition - Brian P. Cleary,Brian Gable

The Mission of Addition is a great book about MATH! Yes, this book is all about addition. In the very beginning of the book, addition is defined. Addition is being modeled through rhyming in this book with many illustrations and examples. It is such a great book, especially for teachers to read aloud with 1st-2nd grade. Following the read aloud, students can practice their addition with real objects from the story! For example, the teacher can supply mini school buses or rings as their math manipulatives. A vocab lesson with addition, plus, and equal.
