Cookies, cookies and more cookies
Better Homes and Gardens the Ultimate Cookie Book, Second Edition - Better Homes and Gardens

While looking for an audiobook in the library overdrive, I found this book. Every Christmas, my kitchen becomes a baking mecca. We bake cookies and make candies, learn chemistry and package up the goodies to distribute to those who love the goodies. I took longer to get through this book as I was marking so many of the recipes to make later (Christmas). This is definitely going to be borrowed again.

Clean Eating
Clean Eating: 365 Days of Clean Eating Recipes (Clean Eating, Clean Eating Cookbook, Clean Eating Recipes, Clean Eating Diet, Healthy Recipes, For Living Wellness and Weigh loss, Eat Clean Diet Book - Emma Katie

My kids were thinking about a bake-off that usually happens in March of a year at a local library. This year was canceled due to babies due dates and not enough people to help work the event. That is okay. I know that it will happen again next year. 


So we had started going through books that I had for recipes that involved baking and I found some good ones in the book and marked them for later trial and error. There were many things in the book that I know that I would not make as well. But that is okay as the book did have about 365 different recipes to make and try.

Single Serving
Mug Cake: The Ultimate Vegan Mug Cake Cookbook: Quick, Easy and 100% Vegan - Zoe Hazan

This is not Gluten Free, but it is "animal" free. These recipes are all for one serving and good for one person. There were quite a few interesting little recipes that I would like to try, but I would have to make it 5 times and that is just too much work when I can make something once and cut into servings. This is good for a single person or someone who eats alone frequently (that was me before kids and while husband worked 3rds).

Gluten Free
Good Eating's Gluten-Free Recipes: Healthy and Fresh Appetizers, Entrees and Desserts - Agate Digital

Good start on how to make things that are gluten free for those who have to follow the diet and is Kindle only and $7.99. I got this book when it was free and just now read it. There are quite a few recipes that I marked, but many that I cannot make or eat. This is well put together and easy to follow.

Another Cozy Mystery with Recipes
Fudging the Books - Daryl Wood Gerber

This is Book 4 of the series and I have not read the other books. I just liked the name of this book and choose it first. As near as I can figure (I'll be reading the other books, too) it doesn't need to be read in order. 


The bookstore is decorated for Pirate Days (a town celebration) and hosting a chocolate cookbook book club meal and they bring in Coco, a local celebrity with her own cookbooks and her publisher, another local. They have a lot of fun and enjoy the night. When they finish, they go to have a drink at the local wine bar, Vines. They separate to go home or on dates and the next morning, early, Bailey is calling Jenna to come to Coco's home because Alison has been murdered and was found by Coco in her home. 


Cinnamon, the local police chief, asks Jenna to listen and let her know what she learns, but then takes it back because someone is making complaints and saying that the chief isn't able to find the murderer on her own. 


There are two cats, who are brought back and forth to the store because Jenna doesn't feel her cat should be left alone at any time. Bailey is bringing the cat her boyfriend back and forth because Jenna does that. 


Jenna keeps flashing back to her husband and his suicide, her life in the advertising agency. She keeps going off on wild goose chases trying to figure out who really is to blame for Alison's death. 


The story was okay and the recipes will be fun to try. I think leaving the cat either at home or at the store, quit hauling it back and forth and without a carrier.
