Maria in the Moon - Louise Beech My Review - 5 Stars My goodness, this book. I don't want to say too much about it because it is best experienced as the plot unfolds. I was gobsmacked by the pacing and how the author built the story. The writing was... Continue reading

My Review: 4 Stars That's What She Said is a lovely addition to any coffee table.

I ended up having a lot of issues with A Man Called Ove but at least I can say I read it. I gave it 3 stars for now. So awesome that you're getting involved with MDA!

Almost 7 years ago, I shared my Mug Brownie recipe. I've been making a variation of the recipe I originally found in the Chicago Tribune for about ten years now. I like tweaking it and trying different add-ins but I recently came up with my best version yet. I was... Continue reading
