    Food That Anchors

    “Food is a universal language that bypasses tension or silence. It bridges the chasm of differences,” Ellen C Lee from Food That Anchors. I was gifted this cookbook and am so glad that I have it in my collection now. The introduction by Ellen is one of the most honest introductions I think I have ever read in any book. She discussed her challenging upbringing and how even in the difficult times they always sat down to dinner and in a way that anchored her family. We all experienced different childhoods each with their own problems – some more traumatic than others. I think her introduction shows how one small action such as…

    Jurassic World: The Official Cookbook

    “The chapters in this cookbook are based on the spectacular, dinosaur-filled “zones” in the park, each of which showcases a different kind of dinosaur and the cuisine they’ve inspired,” Dayton Ward. I’ve been a fan of the Jurassic World and Jurassic Park movies for years – and i’ve seen them all. When I saw they were releasing Jurassic World: The Official Cookbook I couldn’t wait to try the recipes and bring a little taste of the park into my own home. The recipes are easy to follow and provide delicious results. I love how the cookbook has information about all of the different dinosaurs throughout it. It’s almost like a guidebook to the…

    Bake Your Heart Out

    “This is the real magic of baking. It gives you a feeling of fulfillment and accomplishment unlike anything else I’ve found. I may have an endless to-do list, but if I can sit down with my family on Sunday and share a dessert that makes them groan with pleasure or drop off a batch of cookies to someone having a hard time, I can go to bed knowing it was a good day,” Dan Langan.
