Snuggle up with these- Part 2

If this has posted on Jan.30th, I am here to say that I LOVE BLOGGER!

I have 3 more books that I think you will enjoy reading.

The first is Joie De Vivre- Simple French Style for Everyday Living by Robert Arbor and Katherine Whiteside.

The recipes are the real deal and the pictures..... You will learn so much by the time you finish the book, you'll be almost French (another really great book by Sarah Turnbull)

The next book is A Goose in Toulouse and other Culinary Adventures in France by Mort Rosenblum.
I seem to have a theme going here-hehe.
If you love food and love all things French, pick it up. You will not regret it.
It is like taking a mini vacation without the price tag.

I have to warn you about the last book. I was reading this in a waiting room and started laughing so hard I had to leave the room. It is a hoot!

It is called The Reluctant Tuscan- How I discovered my inner Italian by Phil Doran.
I laughed until I cried but the story also made me cry.
Trust me on this and just read it.

Have a wonderful weekend.

The reluctant Tuscan does sound interesting.

Maybe you can answer a question for me? Your blog coming up under the heading 'links to this post'. How does that work and does it stop comments coming in to my E-mail box? Ihave only just come across this facility as I usually do not visit my comments directly but rely on my E-mail box.

I also see that the link only brings up one post with y ours but with others there are more than one????

Hi Barb!
It really is me ~ your long lost friend!! I've been meaning to get over here and say hi for the longest time (the sound you hear is me kicking my own behind!). I was thinking about you last week and then you left that sweet comment. It was as though great minds were thinking alike!! :) I'm glad to know you are well!

What great book selections ~ I love anything about Italy or France! Frances Mayes is a Georgia girl, so naturally her books are fabulous...hahaha!! Seriously, I loved At Home In Tuscany! I'll have to check out those other books you listed ~ great selections!!

Lots of hugs (and I'll be back soon...), Bebe :)

I am just back froma week away and catching up. I am loving making a book list here... these all look fabulous. I don't get a lot of time for pleasure reading with 3 kids still at home, but I hope to one day. So I am making lists of things. But every once in a while I will pick something up and read it if it takes me 3 months of 5 minutes at night as I drop off to sleep. LOL. Also love the fondue post. Before there were 5 grandchildren, my mother in law always fondued on Christmas Eve with one pot of cheese for bread dipping and one pot of oil to fry small pieces of chicken, beef, and meatballs (which had all be pre-browned in the skillet so it wouldn't take so long.) Now that my kids are older, we keep saying we're going to do that sometime. But we never seem to get around to it. You have given me inspiration!

That last one really appeals to me, thanks!!!

Interesting books indeed. Have you read Frances Mayes 'Bella Tuscany'?

Bonjour Barb!

I thought I'd stop by and say "HI" friend! The books look great and I LOVE fondue! Thanks for your recipe, I hope to try it soon. I actually have a fondue pot. Remember when that was all the rage in about the 70's?? Everything old is new again!

Bisous, Sherry
