Reading List!

14 Apr

Yesterday, I visited the library on my way home from work. (In theory, I was there to pick up some movies for our weekend entertainment, because yes, we are that lame cheap old insert your own adjective. Movies from the library = Friday night at our home.) 

But since I was there, why not kill two birds with one stone? I was just going to look for one book (Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes) in order to get some ideas for several baby shower cakes/cupcakes that are coming down the pike. Even though that one wasn’t available, I still picked up quite a few books for my weekend reading. 

  • Ripe for Dessert, David Lebovitz (Dessert with fruit? How fast can I try every recipe?) 
  • Everyday Pasta, Giada De Laurentiis (Have I mentioned my love for carbs?)
  • Cupcakes, Shelly Kaldunski (I did get a cupcake book, so we’ll see if it’s as good as Martha’s.)  
  • Fondant Modeling for Cake Decorators, Helen Penman (I picked this one up so Karen and I can work on our fondant skills… hopefully there’ll be instructions on building a flamingo!) 
  • Let Us Eat Cake, Sharon Boorstin (Anything with the subtitle “Adventures in Food and Friendship” is going to catch my eye.) 
  • My Life in France, Julia Child (Seems like one of those books that I should read… even though I haven’t made any of Julia’s recipes… yet.) 

Thankfully, my library lets me keep books for four weeks. That should give me ample time to try a few recipes (like those cream-puff-looking things on the back of the dessert book) and hopefully an evening or two to read the others. And maybe then I’ll pick up the next Hunger Games book…
