Amish Celebrations
Amish Celebrations: Four Novellas - Beth Wiseman

Amish Celebrations is really a combination of 4 stories in one book. They are all different but have something in common. They all are about celebrations.

 

Here are all the books and there reviews for each one.

 

The Gift of Sisters

Hannah and Elizabeth are twins. When a new boy comes to town, he seem to attracted both girls. They both fall for him in there own ways. He seem to have them pulling them away from each other. Will either one of them choose this new boy or will they both leave them.

 

Will it be two late to reunite to be sisters. One is doing something to protect her sister and the other think the other is trying to ruin her life and her love life at that. Will they find what best for them.

 

A New Beginning

Noah and Rebecca seem to be heading for marriage? Noah does something and make Rebecca think about getting married? What was it that Noah did? Will Noah walk way or will he forgive himself. What could Noah be struggling with? Rebecca is also navigation their relationship as well. Does she want to be with Noah or trust him?

 

A Perfect Plan

Priscilla knows who see was marrying since she way sixteen years old. Once the question is pop to her. They seem to think they know the prefect plan. God seem to have another plan or a bit of changes to that plan when one disaster will occurs after another. Is God testing there relationship?

 

There seems to be a special person who has something for both Chester and Priscilla. They each receive it at different times and separately. They are both told to not open it until there wedding day and not before and promised. Will they even get married or will they not?

 

A Christmas Miracle

Every feel overwhelmed with life or motherhood? Well, Mary feels this and does not know how to cope with her children. She seems to feel like she a bad mother. Though she got her husband and her husband seem to try and help. He for a loss to help her as well. Though he suggest that she ask her mother in law to help her.

 

There seem to be something more to stress of the marriage. Will her husband get some advise to help his marriage and his wife before it to late? There seems to be someone really important that happens when Mary befriends an elderly man in a red suit and his side kick elf?

 

I really like how this story outcomes turn out. Will Mary really get what needs and help she needs to cope with her situation. Does Mary's mother in law dislike Mary or is it something else.

Happy 1st FrankenDay from Midu Reads! Come, Celebrate by Putting Together an Undead Hybrid Creature & then Forgetting All About It!

 

 

It was a year ago today that I embarked on the journey to finish over a dozen books. Mary Shelley’s birthday had just come and gone, making me realize that I didn’t know much about her.

 

I hadn’t read Frankenstein, which I remedied instantly. Neither had I known anything about the teenager who might have birthed a whole new genre. As I continued the project, I realized the hold that her literary creature still had on us. I saw the extent to which the eponymous inventor and his experiment from Mary’s book have penetrated the media.

 

Whether it is a movie or an offhand reference on a show, Frankenstein and his monster refuse to leave our collective imaginations.

 

Project Frankenstein continues.

The current status of the project stands thus:

Even when I come across other books inspired by the classic, I don’t add it to my list. I have decided to stick to the original.

A Happy FrankenDay to you all!

Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations by Danielle Walker
Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion - Danielle Walker

Published by: Ten Speed Press (27 Sept. 2016)

  • ISBN-13: 978-1607749424
  • Source: NetGalley
  • Rating: 4*

 

Details:

From the two-time New York Times best-selling author ofAgainst All Grain and Meals Made Simple, comes 125 recipes for grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free comfort food dishes for holidays and special occasions.
When people adopt a new diet for health or personal reasons, they worry most about the parties, holidays, and events with strong food traditions, fearing their fond memories will be lost along with the newly eliminated food groups. After suffering for years with a debilitating autoimmune disease and missing many of these special occasions herself, Danielle Walker has revived the joy that cooking for holidays can bring in Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations, a collection of recipes and menus for twelve special occasions throughout the year.
Featuring a variety of birthday cakes, finger foods to serve at a baby or bridal shower, and re-creations of backyard barbecue standards like peach cobbler and corn bread, Danielle includes all of the classics. There's a full Thanksgiving spread--complete with turkey and stuffing, creamy green bean casserole, and pies--and menus for Christmas dinner; a New Year's Eve cocktail party and Easter brunch are covered, along with suggestions for beverages and cocktails and the all-important desserts. Recipes can be mixed and matched among the various occasions, and many of the dishes are simple enough for everyday cooking. Stunning full-color photographs of every dish make browsing the pages as delightful as cooking the recipes, and beautiful party images provide approachable and creative entertaining ideas.
Making recipes using unfamiliar ingredients can cause anxiety, and while trying a new menu on a regular weeknight leaves some room for error, the meal simply cannot fail when you have a table full of guests celebrating a special occasion. Danielle has transformed her most cherished family traditions into trustworthy recipes you can feel confident serving, whether you re hosting a special guest with food allergies, or cooking for a crowd of regular grain-eaters.

 

Review:

This is a comprehensive book for anyone looking to embrace a grain free way of eating. There are recipes too suit every pocket, occasion, taste and level of expertise. Perfect for those actively avoiding grains or just looking to cut down on carbs. With fantastic photographs to accompany Danielle's recipes, this book would make an ideal addition to any book shelf.

Celebration's Family (Celebrations, Inc.)
Celebration's Family (Celebrations, Inc.) - Nancy Robards Thompson 3.25 stars

I enjoyed the conflict and lead up to the auction, but after the story kind of fizzled for me. Liam's grief came across as selfishness to me, and because of that, the HEA wasn't convincing for me. Kate's compassion towards Liam's daughter saved the read, and I wish there had been more moments like those.
