Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating with More Than 75 Recipes (2008)

Liked the common sense approach, but didn't feel it added much new info to the nutrition conversation. The info about carbs seemed really out of date also, as it didn't talk about the impact on blood sugar/insulin. I really liked the recipe for spinach and sweet potato salad. Also, he makes his d...

This book as well as the documentary has to be one of my all time favorites as you can tell by my 5-star rating. I have watched the documentary 3 time and decided that it would be an even better idea to read the actual book, and I was right. This book is gripping, it makes you and angry and sad a...

A lovely little novel about a culinary journey of the heart from India to England to France and ultimately the Michelin star. Our hero is a chef of renown, and the book is redolent with food preparation and recipes -- all wonderful. But really the book is about globalism and change, and a plea ...
The Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics (2009)

This book is worth having in your cookbook library for the soups desserts and breakfast chapters. The tomato soup is heaven and the oatmeal raisin cookies are perfection. Some of the recipes are so basic they leave a bit to be desired (such as the burger recipe) and others call for ingredients th...

I loved this book, dog-eared the hell out of it and posted quotes on Facebook. I was excited over every footnote, pun, absurdity and curiosity that Mary shared and would take great pleasure in going through her initial drafts, notes, and bits of research that led her to this enlightening and ente...

Me encantó esta trilogía policial, llena de misterio y suspenso, atrapante. Entrañables personajes, en especial los protagonistas Lisbeth y Mikael, hay también muchos personajes femeninos badass como Erika y Sonja. Es una lástima que el autor muriera y no pudiera publicar los 10 tomos que tenía e...

L'inconfondibile tristezza della torta al limone (2010)

This book was an adventure, but a quiet one. Other books have transported me from place to place, but The Particular Sadness of a Lemon Cake was like flipping through episodes of a TV show. I liked the idea about "special skills" and how everyone seems to deal differently. There was no thrill, th...
