#BookNLunch! So this has been my regular lunch for awhile now, soup and salad. This afternoon‘s accompaniment: salad of mesculin mix, grape tomatoes, marinated mozzarella balls and mushrooms, cucumber, black olives, shredded carrots, chicken breast strips, bacon bits, and parmesan cheese, with honey dijon dressing; also, chicken spaetzle soup, and mineral water. MMmmm 😋! Happy reads & happy eats! 😎👌🏻

8little_paws Honestly i love salad. Gotta have a good dressing!!! 8mo

My main reading goal for 2019 is to climb as much of my #MountTBR as possible, while bringing in as few new books as possible. I can‘t believe how much I read in Jan! My faves were the tagged book, The Soul of an Octopus, and The Book of Dust.

Finished 19 books!
Bailed on 3.

16 owned TBR, 5 library books (physical and audio)

julesG 👏👏👏👏 10mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz Wowwww!!! 19 in one month!!! That's what I read in 4-6 months!!!congrats! 10mo
Soubhiville @Jee_HookedOnBookz lol, I don‘t really watch TV (except for 30 mins to an hour at night while we eat dinner), I don‘t have kids, and I don‘t do a lot socially besides dance classes, so I read a lot! Plus January is my slowest month at work, and when I don‘t have clients I have extra time off. The rest of the year won‘t look like this! 10mo

Jee_HookedOnBookz @Soubhiville wow but it's still such an achievement! I rarely watch TV too. Unless my LO insists that I watch with her 😅 I read whenever I can 😅 I pray one day I can have super reading powers like yours! Do you like reading when it's all quiet or you prefer some white noise? 10mo
Soubhiville @Jee_HookedOnBookz I prefer quiet, but I can read if the tv is quiet with something boring like politics or sports on while my husband watches, or if he‘s playing computer games in the next room. But ideally I like it quiet. 10mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Way to go!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 10mo
Jee_HookedOnBookz @Soubhiville same here. Unless I'm already absorbed in the book. If I just started and trying to get used to the writing style, quiet is the better way to go haha 10mo

I‘ve already had my first 5⭐️ read of 2019!

Bauermeister‘s writing is thick and rich like chocolate, crisp and fresh like just picked lettuce, warming like a good red wine.

Several strangers take a cooking class at a special restaurant kitchen. Each wants to learn more than how to cook, and we are lucky enough to look into each of their lives for just a little while.

This is a book that will stay in my heart, and on my bookshelf.

mcipher I‘m so glad you loved it! Her others are fabulous, too. She‘s just a killer writer. ❤️ 11mo
meeshmom Amazing! 11mo
Soubhiville @mcipher I‘ve added her others to my TBR. Thank you for this wonderful book! 11mo

“There was red, certainly, but a painter‘s palette of variations, deep garnet to almost orange, with streaks of green and yellow. It‘s comforting weight filled her hand, the ridges sliding between her fingers.”

Filled with beautiful images like this, this book delights my senses. I can practically smell the garden green and loamy. Taste it! The author makes you feel the characters in the same way.

(I want an emoji of kissing my fingertips!)

“...every part of the book was magic, but what she delighted in most were the words themselves. Lillian‘s mother collected exquisite phrases and complicated rhythms, descriptions that undulated across a page like cake batter pouring into a pan...”

Interesting🧐 this rather describes the very book it came from

#MarchMunchies #tarts
"They ate in an easy silence, reveling in the creamy lemon tart in front of them. After a while, Isabelle spoke again. 'You know,' she said, holding up a forkful, 'I'm starting to think that maybe memories are like this dessert. I eat it, and it becomes a part of me, whether I remember it later, or not.'"
A quote from a favorite foodie novel.?
The pic is from my blog-I recreated Isabelle's dinner-though I bought the?tarts.

I adored this book! Beautiful writing - almost poetic at times - "whispers of nutmeg." The Thanksgiving dinner sounds divine! This is a story of so much more than food as 8 individuals come together for cooking classes but come away with so much more as they learn together and from each other.
"Life is beautiful. Some people just remind you of that more than others."

Sassy_Steph Have you read the sequel? It was amazing too! It‘s called the lost art of mixing 2y

I listened to this one on audio. This was a nice little book telling the stories of different people who meet at a cooking class. I often listen to non-fiction which I find easier to follow on audio but had no problem following this one. It was enjoyable but didn't really knock my socks off.

This lovely story is a big heaping plate of comfort food. ❤
It follows a group individuals who sign up for a cooking class yet end up learing more about themselves & each other through the magical wonders of food & friendship.
Come to think of it, I could use a re-reading of this fav right about now. Goodness knows we could all use a good dose of feel-good comfort food reading!!

#BookNLunch! #BookClub edition. Another wonderful meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub which @MrBook and I run in our neck of the woods! Today we all talked about the awesome books we got at last meeting's #bookswap—got some great recommendations! 😁📚 This is how they serve their parfaits at the cafe. Fancy! Organic vanilla yogurt, homemade granola, and fresh fruit. And a cranberry-hibiscus tea. Yum! 😋 Happy reads and happy eats!

It's #Recommendsday! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Brilliant! So heartfelt and tender. This book is poetry. A work of art. Writing is fab, story is told beautifully, author conveys such an artistic love & appreciation of food—it's magic. Must-read for any foodie, chef, anyone who cooks, anyone who eats. Simply delicious. It shows you how cooking can be something more, something from the heart, a work of love and art. Made my heart swell with warmth & joy. ❤

I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. I expected a palate cleanser of cutesy stories. Instead I got a visceral reaction to each of the characters and their stories that were woven so well and in relatively few pages. Food itself acted as a central character; sensual, uniting, and sustaining.

Mom recommended this book, so I want sure I would like it. Ended up loving it and looking for the recipes. My mouth is watering just thinking about the hot chocolate with orange and anise. Too bad it'll be in the 90s today.

Recommended by my mom, I didn't have high hopes for it. I ended up loving it and searching for recipes from it. The hot chocolate is amazing. #booksthatmakemehungry #septphotochallenge @RealLifeReading
