A fabulous book for foodies, fashionistas, mystery and history lovers, and romantics! A little bit of everything in this book but fair warning, the food descriptions will make you drool and nothing you can scrounge out of the cupboards will compare lol 😋😅♥️🍴📖

#blameitonbooked2019 #booked2019 my first completed read for Spring- food on the cover. I LOVED this book. It was on audible. There were snippets I did not love, but over all- a story within a story. Trigger Warning: the hard parts were food descriptions, since I‘m Vegan. Some of the descriptors hurt my heart. I kept thinking “I wish there was a vegan book like this”

DivineDiana I think that could be a new genre! 🤔 6mo
Chrissyreadit @DivineDiana vegan fiction? If so 🥰🥰🥰🥰 6mo
DivineDiana Yes! I would definitely support! 6mo

This book has been on my “to read” list for years. And I finally found a copy through Cloud Library. It was delightful. I didn‘t want it to end, and I am looking forward to reading a few more of Ruth Reichl‘s books (non-fiction) this summer for the #ModernMrsDarcySummerReading

First day for #bookfitnesschallenge and I‘ve already changed my activity for today. I set up my raised beds, potted plants, partial weeding of one butterfly garden, anti-mosquito garden finished, and half of my “sitting” garden set up. Needed two rests, help from two teens and two showers. It was hard and that makes me sad, but I spent time doing something physical I love. Listened to tagged book. #icandohardthings

mabell Nice work!! I was telling Chris about your planned mosquito garden. We‘re both intrigued! You‘ll have to report back 😄 7mo

“When I gave Mrs. Cappuzzelli the aged Parmesan, she acted as if her hands were filled with diamonds. Then she made some fettuccine— rolling it out so thin you could see right through it— and we sat down and ate it with nothing but butter and grated cheese. It will always be my favorite kind of pasta.”
I remember my Grandmother, who had lived through WWII, describing eating a single cube of chocolate with this same reverence. xox

And I‘ve finished my last book of the year, bringing the total to 167! I adored this coming of age novel about a young woman discovering her own potential while working at a food magazine & hunting down old letters.

Schnoebs My favorite scene in this is when she describes what the food looks like after she opens to kitchen doors to determine what the smell is! 11mo

Another read I finished in the last week. Just like Reichl's memoirs, this novel was full of delicious prose (if not sometimes an overly decadent offering... but this is Reichl's style.) A fun story that draws a smidge from some of her own life experiences. I think I'd like to add this one to my own library one day. (I borrowed from the library because I'VE REMEMBERED HOW GLORIOUS LIBRARIES ARE!!)

irre I really liked this one as well. 14mo

Like Fannie Flagg's The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion, I had intended to donate this book back to the Friends of the Library for their next sale. I believe it's going to stay in my personal library, at least for a bit longer.

I thoroughly enjoyed Billie and Sammy's discovery and resulting treasure hunt.

I included bonus deliciousness for your viewing pleasure in the photo: Mr. September in the Australian firefighters calendar. 😉

I‘ve read all of Reichl‘s books 📚- she‘s one of my favorite authors and I always buy whatever book she writes, knowing it won‘t disappoint. This is her first fiction novel, which I found charming and enjoyable. I liked her memoir books better but I was not disappointed. I read this years ago when it was first published but today it‘s on sale - I hope others will enjoy her books as much as I do, and at a great price 😊📚📖

The characters jump right off the page and into your living room, they are amazing! So lively, so well written. Not simply a love story, but full of love. A beautiful self discovering story, with so many unexpected stops along the way. Seriously delicious. It‘s so aptly named! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

1. @Valink I accidentally unraveled the yarn looking for the end 🤦🏻‍♀️ I feel like such a failure for that. Being very careful not to tangle it. But
2. I‘m making progress on this little scarf! I almost made something crochet but decided I needed the challenge. It‘s fun!
3. Did this for a couple hours then continued with my book, I have not disliked a single page of this book, or had to skim a single paragraph, and that‘s saying something!

Valink Awesome! I‘m interested to see how it knits up! I lost the tag for the fiber, it I have no clue what it was other than something animal based! Lol it felt like it had some alpaca in it to me though. 1y

I love food memoirs and this was a lovely little food-lovin‘ book filled with savory illustrations and references but also including fun characters, some mystery and even a bit of romance. The story of the letters and the flashbacks to the times of victory garden cooking really intrigued me. I enjoyed the insight into that world and how prejudices toward Italian Americans were so fierce during that time that eating Italian food seemed un-American!

Still struggling with my reading mojo this year (damn Election.) Spending way too much time with political Twitter feeds! But, apparently books with food involved my be the way to my reading-self's heart! This is my second in a row. I usually like "bigger reads" but find I am reading more comfort books while I struggle with my focus issues. This is a nice story ... and I have made a copy of the recipe for a MN fall baking day. Story suggestions?

I feel too bad to give a pan, since I love Reichl's nonfiction, but this really wasn't for me. Too frothy and unsteady writing. The main character was a creation very much out of time, and it was painfully obvious the author didn't know how to write a woman in her early 20s in present day NY. Percy agrees. 🐱

seebiscan I was disappointed by this book, too--I so wanted to like it, but you're right that the main character was off. 2y

#RockinMay #newyorkminute New York is one of my favorite cities to visit and favorite foodie cities to eat in so here are three fun foodie novels set, or mostly set there. All of them had characters with lives that changed in New York and all inspired delicious dishes when I read and reviewed them. #foodiebooks #litsycooks ❤️🍎🏙

DebinHawaii @Cinfhen It was a recreation of a massaged kale salad with currants, pine nuts & Parmesan. Really good! 😋🍴 Here's a link to the recipe: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-book-tour-stops-here-delicious.ht... 3y
Cinfhen Thanks so much!!!! 3y
Smashlee I'm intrigued by the Wedding Bees...my dad is a beekeeper. Is it a recipe book or a story with recipes? 3y
DebinHawaii @Smashlee It's a foodie novel about a southern woman who keeps bees and moves to NYC. No recipes but plenty of food mentions and inspiration in the story. 3y
Smashlee Good enough for me to add to my stack 😊 3y

This started off strong but got overly complicated and a bit too long. The sections about food were my favorite, despite there being pretty much nothing I like less than food writing. I don't read many light books so this was fun. #audiobook #palettecleanser

Food. Cooking. Writing. Historical fiction. Romance. A little twist. What's not to love? I really like Ruth Reichl's nonfiction and I was a little worried her first fiction book wouldn't live up to the others, but I wasn't disappointed. (Reading by candlelight makes for a dark picture, but it's a great way to relax before a busy week.)

My kids have a five day weekend. Today was the first day. I'm stealing some me time now. I really need to invest in some good soundproof headphones. Really.
