I Hate To Cook Cookbook Review & Giveaway-2 winners!*CLOSED*


  ~I Hate To Cook CookBook~
          By~
   Peg Bracken

Her writing is clever and witty, downright hilarious at times. Even without considering that it is a cookbook, it makes a great read.
The book has 180 recipes, divided into chapters with headings like "Potluck Suppers, or How to Bring the Water for the Lemonade" and "Desserts, or People are Too Fat Anyway." The first chapter has 30 recipes, one for each day of the month, because Peg noticed that her husband (and the rest of the family) tended to get cranky when they were forced to eat the same thing day in and day out. Some, she says directly, are "pretty dull", but they taste good and they'll get you through the month. Others in the book are more interesting, but they're all quite easy.


"There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who don't cook out of and have NEVER cooked out of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK, and the other kind...The I HATE TO COOK people consist mainly of those who find other things more interesting and less fattening, and so they do it as seldom as possible. Today there is an Annual Culinary Olympics, with hundreds of cooks from many countries ardently competing. But we who hate to cook have had our own Olympics for years, seeing who can get out of the kitchen the fastest and stay out the longest."

- Peg Bracken

Philosopher's Chowder. Skinny Meatloaf. Fat Man's Shrimp. Immediate Fudge Cake. These are just a few of the beloved recipes from Peg Bracken's classic I HATE TO COOK BOOK. Written in a time when women were expected to have full, delicious meals on the table for their families every night, Peg Bracken offered women who didn't revel in this obligation an alternative: quick, simple meals that took minimal effort but would still satisfy.

50 years later, times have certainly changed - but the appeal of THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK hasn't.

This book is for everyone, men and women alike, who wants to get from cooking hour to cocktail hour in as little time as possible.
                                                     
Thanks to Anna Balasi of Hachette Book Group~I am giving away 2 copies of this Book!

The Castaways Book Review & Giveaway -3 Winners!*CLOSED*




                      ~The Castaways~
                              By~
                         Erin Hilderbrand

Full Description~

Greg and Tess MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.

Once again, Hilderbrand masterfully weaves an intense tale of love and loyalty set against the backdrop of endless summer island life.


My Review~


I thought that this book was Awesome~It had many twists and turns and kept you wanting more.I read this book in 3 days as I could not put it down..It is a very touching story and I felt like I was there with each couple.I like how every person narrates their own story.
This is the first book I have read by Elin Hilderbrand and now I am looking forward to reading more of her books. If you are looking for a great summer read this is it!

I was sent all seven delicious Zevia varieties~Natural Cola~Natural Orange~Natural Twist~Natural Root Beer~Natural Black Cherry~ and Natural Ginger Ale. 

They are healthier and taste better than other diet sodas. I really liked the Natural Black Cherry the best~as it had a great cherry taste.I also like that I can drink Zevia soda and not worry about any calories!!

Bob like the Natural Root Beer and said that it mixed well and tasted great  with ice cream too! 


Zevia Info~

With only pure ingredients, Zevia contains none of the chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes, artificial flavors or artificial colors found in other diet sodas. Zevia is all-natural, has zero calories, zero net carbs, zero fat, and little or no sodium{depending on flavor}.

You can buy Zevia online and also you can find a store near you that carries it here!

Smiley Cookie Review & Giveaway!*CLOSED*



Have you tried Smiley Cookies yet???


I had not tried them so I was super excited when I was able to review them!
I was sent a dozen of their huge sugar cookies~and they were a hit here at our house.The taste is great~not too sweet like some other sugar cookies that I have tried. And the frosting is real thick and has a great taste that goes perfect with the cookie. Each one is a different color and the smiles are very bright.My grandchildren thought that they were just the cutest!

Cookies are made fresh daily and shipped within 48 hours and have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  The prices range from $8.99 to $9.99 a dozen and they come shipped in a plastic container so the cookies don’t get crushed during shipping.You can also order custom cookies too.



Smiley Cookies would be great for Birthday~Anniversary~Retirement~Baby Showers and More!



They have Cookie Baskets that you can order too and there are many to choose from.
Heck~you can just send a dozen to put a smile on someone's face!


SmileyCookie.com is a site devoted to the Eat’n Park icon, the Smiley Cookie.
   Jim Broadhurst  is the man behind the cookie’s story.  As a boy, Jim frequented a small bakery in his hometown of Titusville, Pennsylvania.  Every day on his way home from school, Jim would stop at Warner’s Bakery and purchase a happy-faced cookie as a treat for five cents.
What began as a simple sweet treat has morphed into something much, much more! There is now a Smiley Cookie for every occasion.  They take on the shape of hearts, shamrocks, bunnies, and jack-o-lanterns and are available for order in virtually any color combination.  One thing that that always remains the same is the cookie’s signature friendly smile.

And~I have some fantastic News! 
Adam at Smiley Cookie is going to send one of you a dozen of Smiley Cookies!

ProFLowers Elegant Twist Bamboo Review!






I was recently sent a Beautiful Elegant Twist Bamboo Plat from Pro Flowers to review. 
It arrived in a big box and was packed so good~there was no way that it was going to get damaged as I had a hard time getting to it. :-)

It was so easy to put together I just added the rocks to the planter that it came with put the plant in there and added some water and now I am sitting enjoying it every day! It requires very little attention and will contuine to grow for a long time.

ProFlowers has so many flowers and plants to choose from~I had a hard time deciding what to choose.
The green plants are great gifts for everyone as they are easy to care for and look great in the home or office.Men love plants too.

As~when this arrived the first thing Bob did was tell that this was his plant and to leave it alone he will take care of it.I am just to sit and enjoy it so I think that is what I will do.

Backseat Saints AudoBook Giveaway!3 Winners!*CLOSED*


 ~Backseat Saints~
By~
Joshilyn Jackson


Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee" she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches. She seems doomed to spend the rest of her life battered outside by her husband and inside by her former self, until fate throws her in the path of an airport gypsy---one who shares her past and knows her future. The tarot cards foretell that Rose's beautiful, abusive husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first.

Hot-blooded Rose Mae escapes from under Ro's perky compliance and emerges with a gun and a plan to beat the hand she's been dealt. Following messages that her long-missing mother has left hidden for her in graffiti and behind paintings, Rose and her dog Gretel set out from Amarillo, TX back to her hometown of Fruiton, AL, and then on to California, unearthing a host of family secrets as she goes. Running for her life, she realizes that she must face her past in order to overcome her fate---death by marriage---and become a girl who is strong enough to save herself from the one who loves her best.

BACKSEAT SAINTS will dazzle listeners with a fresh and heartwrenching portrayal of the lengths a mother will go to right the wrongs she's created, and how far a daughter will go to escape the demands of forgiveness. With the seed of a minor character from her popular best-seller, GODS IN ALABAMA, Jackson has built a whole new story full of her trademark sly wit, endearingly off-kilter characters, and utterly riveting plot twists.



 About The Author~
New York Times Bestselling novelist Joshilyn Jackson lives in Georgia with her husband, their two children, and way too many feckless animals. Her debut, gods in Alabama, won SIBA's 2005 Novel of the year Award and was a #1 BookSense pick. Jackson won Georgia Author of the Year for her second novel, Between, Georgia, which also a #1 BookSense pick, making Jackson the first author in BookSense history to receive #1 status in back to back years.
