reviewed The Inheritance. March 15, 2010
The Inheritance
This book is for you. I've been suffering because Netflix does not stream Midsomers Murders or Poirot. This book was as comfortable as Saturdays years ago when you could catch both shows on cable. Grab …

Sun Crystals Stevia and Sugar Cane Granular
I've always believed that if you like one type of artificial sweetener, you probably don't like the others. It thinks it's the way we're wired. I loved Equal and hated Sweent N Low. After using Splenda, …

These are nice, plush towels. They aren't super-plush, which makes them a nice treat for everyday use. (Those who use a washcloth instead of something like this Cain and Able Bath Sponge may understand …

The Source of Miracles: 7 Steps to Transforming
I have found this book to be a difficult, but enjoyable read. It's enjoyable because the book was written in the right spirit and with the best of intentions. The book is difficult because, if the reader …
Curves Rule and Flat Is Fabulous: Sexy, Stylish
A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a new journal and ended up in Papyrus. I go to that store maybe once every three years. Well, things have changed since my last visit. Papyrus has a tiny, but killer …
Tyler's Ultimate: Brilliant Simple Food to Make
I know I'm probably the last person on Earth to get this book. It was a gift. I just went through the book cover to cover and I can't wait to cook! Another hobby has taken me out of the kitchen, but this …
reviewed Underneath It All. November 15, 2009
Underneath It All
This book made me blush. (That would be Chapter 6, but I'll let you get the book and see why). What was very interesting to me was the quiz that helped you determine your lingerie style. The information …

One Hundred Years of Menswear
I thought the book was a great pictorial history of men's fashion. It would be a great gift for any fashion-loving friend. While the book seems comprehensive, it isn't all-inclusive. I agree with another …

Living Cookbook 2008
I have been using this software for about a week and I am absolutely amazed by its functionality. I was looking for something that would help me accurately determine cost per serving, but I've gotten …

Good Eats: The Early Years
Good Eats is hands down, my favorite cooking show of all time. It's just as knowledge-packed as America's Test Kitchen, but waaaaaaaay more entertaining. Alton Brown's cookbooks, with the exception of …

All Cakes Considered
This cookbook is wonderful. I'm a big fan of All Things Considered, so I felt like I was getting a behind the scenes peek at the show. Now, on to the cakes.    The recipies range from …

Prayerfulness: Awakening to the Fullness of Life
I ordered this book with the best of intentions. I want to connect with God on a deeper level and I thought this book would help that process. The book probably would if I could get through it. I don't …

Salty Sweets: Delectable Desserts and Tempting
This book goes beyond your basic salted caramels (but there's a recipe for those too). It is really an ode to all things sweet and salty. The author's basic premise is to replace the table salt in recipes …
Cooking for Two: 2009,The Year's Best Recipes Cut
It's been a while since I've reviewed a Cook's Illustrated cookbook. I'm a huge fan, but I grew tired of the recipe repeats. I'd resigned myself to hold out for the annuals.    However, …

I thoroughly enjoyed this fantasy read! Kudos to the young author who got it right. The story is engaging, the characters are fun and you are left wanting more. I know because this is another book I read …

Remington S1051 Salon Quality, Professional
One of the things I learned a while back is that when it comes to cookware are personal appliances, you get what you pay for. The quality of this flat iron starts to defy that. Trust me - I have coarse …
reviewed Tears of Pearl. September 18, 2009
Tears of Pearl
This book was a joy. The story felt original and was multi-layered; there were a few red herrings thrown in for good measure. The exotic setting provided a great backdrop.     Lady …
A Duty to the Dead: A Bess Crawford Mystery
This book was a thrill to read. The author took his time in laying out the story, which was a treat. None of the detail provided for the characters' reactions, descriptions, etc. was wasted. Everything …

Bad Things Happen
This mystery made me work a little, but I enjoyed it. Kudos go to the author for making the story so involving. I started out not liking the lead character, but I was rooting for him in the end. This …

The Case of the Missing Servant: From the Files of
The characters in this book are quite entertaining. Vish Puri and his Mummy are a riot. They had me smiling throughout the book. Puri reminds me of Hercule Poirot, at least the version portrayed by David …
Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire: A
For the most part, I found this book to be an enjoyable read (I had to rush through the objectionable parts, but more about that later.) The story was rich and inventive. If you are looking to be transported …

I've been using this unit for a couple of weeks now and it works great. I use Method Hand Soap and I am surpised by the large amount of soap I get even with the unit on the lowest setting.    The …

I was tired when I finished the book. It was one of those where I had to stay up one night to finish it because when I tried to put it down, the story kept turning over in my head. I had an honest like …

Secrets of the Red Lantern: Stories and Vietnamese
I collect cookbooks. I have close to 100 and my favorites are those that has some history with the recipes. This book fits the bill! Not all recipes have a story to them, but those that do will make you …
Midnight: A Gangster Love Story
First, let me say that The Coldest Winter Ever was one of the most evocative books I've read. So, expectations were high for Midnight. I have to say that the book lived up to my expectations. More so …

The Musician's Daughter
I absolutely love the heroine in this novel! Even though this is set in the 1800s, she is as modern and ambitious a character teens will find in today's contemporary fiction. The story is never dull; …

All-Clad Stainless Balloon Whisk
This whisk has a nice weight. As with all things All-Clad, the quality is excellent, clean up is easy and it's sturdy. My complaint is that because of the way the handle is made, it's not comfortable …

D'Artagnan Black Truffle Butter - pack of 2
This was not at all what I expected. I don't know if that batch I got was old or what, but it did not have truffle flavor! I could see the truffle in the butter, but there was none of that intense earthy …

1-Cup, Pro Adjust-A-Cup, KitchenArt
I've owned this for years and I can't believe I never reviewed it. It's one of three small measuring cups in my kitchen. It only sees use when the others are dirty or when I'm dealing with something sticky …

Tsar: A Thriller
Within the book's 65 chapters, you are treated to a true tale of international espionage. Alex Hawke is James Bond with real human flaws. His story is interesting and complex, if you can wade through …
