BUT

I'm making it up to you


PLEASE PAY ATTENTION to THE ENTRY RULES TODAY CHICKS!!

I've GOT A COUPLE GIVEAWAYS HERE TODAY!!

FIRST...

THE Free Book Friday GIVEAWAY



TESTIMONY
by Anita Shreve
I haven't had time to read this yet, BUT
it looks really good.
This from Amazon.com
At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape. A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in TESTIMONY a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellinglyexplores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.
I have 5 copies to giveaway courtesy of Valerie at Hatchette Book Group!
US and Canada Only no PO Boxes Please!!
Winners will be announced on Friday May 22nd!!

TIME for SELF HELP SUNDAY!
I love to sit and look at recipes...
the beautiful photos of yumminess inspire the crafter in me and with all the bright colors I'm like a kid in a candy store...
This next book is so much fun,
AND will look so pretty on your coffee table!!


MIXSHAKESTIR

Danny Meyer

Don't listen to whatever you may have heard about me..

I'm not a big drinker...:-)

BUT..I do like the occasional yummy cocktail

I almost always have to stop at one though, because the second one never fails to put me on the floor...BUT

I really like to make them when I get the chance...

Maybe I should have been a bartender...

That being said...

THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH FUN!! Filled to the brim with recipies from Danny Meyer's acclaimed NYC restaurants, it takes cocktails to a whole new level. I should also add that the photography in this book is amazing. Everything looks delicious. Danny goes into detail to let you know what basic tools you will need to create these eye catching concoctions and the correct glassware to serve them in. With summer coming quickly, you can spruce up your backyard entertainment by impressing your guests with your bartending skills!
