Congratulationsto Melody Camp for winning theBella Snail Mail stamp!!
I have received two early Christmas gifts and I positively love them. The first one is The Preppy Cookbook by Christine Nunn.
I am going to admit something very few people know about me: I judge a book by its cover. And I am usually always happy with my choice. The Preppy Cookbook’s plaid cover is so darling that if you gave it as a gift you wouldn’t have to wrap it. I can’t wait to put it on my bookshelf in my kitchen.
Many of you know I am married to a man that is a former chef. So needless to say, I am not the sharpest knife in the kitchen. The majority of recipes in The Preppy Cookbook have fewer than ten ingredients and are relatively simple, yet the final product looks very impressive.
Ms. Nunn is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of the Arts, just like my Mister. Along with the delicious recipes, she writes warm, humorous stories about her family as well as her adventures in entertaining.
The Preppy Cookbook has sumptuous recipes as well as gorgeous photos. If you are looking for a fun read or a great hostess gift, this book is for you!
Sorry the photos aren’t better. They are beautiful in the book.
The Mister gave me my other favorite thing because he feels guilty that I have to brave Boston’s bitter temps to take Gypsy out. He bought me headphone-wired earmuffs by Uggs. These things are the best! Not only are they great looking, they are comfortable and delightfully warm. The added bonus is being able to listen to James Taylor while Gypsy is taking care of business!!
