A lot has changed since I posted my last book review. It’s suddenly fall here in Cincinnati, NFL season has started, and I’ve completed two of my fall virtual races. And I’ve read a few books and listened to a few audiobooks. It’s a good mix of modern day novels, a thriller, and book written…
Ever since my cookbook shopping spree, I’ve continued to cook new and fun recipes. I’ve recorded four new summer recipes that I can highly recommended!

My heart breaks for everything that my home state of Minnesota and the entire country is going through. In the same breath, I think it sometimes has to get worse before it gets better.
I sent a snapchat of all my recent cookbook purchases to a friend of mine and she made the TP joke. I laughed because it’s true! I got all these new cookbooks in the mail within a week of each other. I had some of them in my Amazon cart for awhile and finally just…
