Under Pressure

pressure cookerI don’t know about you but I am always looking for quick new recipes. It is so easy for me to fall into at rut cooking the same thing over and over. If that sounds familiar then this book is for you. If you have never cooked with a pressure cooker, then this book is for you. If you are experienced with pressure cooking, then this book is for you.

The first half of this book is full of instruction and information to get you started. The last half of the book presents 500 different recipes. Yes, 500. From breakfast to dessert there is something for every one. The directions are clear and detailed. The recipes clearly provide the proper amount of liquid and even what size to cut the vegetables.

As you can see from the picture I have found many pages of inspiration in this book. I can hardly wait to get started on them!

Lovely (Blogging for Books)

Novel Interiors by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti is a lovely coffee table book. It is full of inspiration for rooms to reflect love of literature. I have paged through this book several times, and each time found new inspirations.

This is not a “how to” book, but a book filled with amazing ideas and beauty that any “do it yourselfer” like my self will find more ideas and inspiration than time. The quotes sprinkled through the book are a wonderful addition.

This book will sit on top of my coffee table to be thumbed through time and time again.

Your Family in Pictures a review

9780823086207  Your Family in Pictures

This book is much like a recipe book but for photographs. Me Ra Koh’s step by step advice for getting your family in the mood, or setting the stage for fun and unusual family photographs is easy to follow. Prompting the reader to not just capture the formal family portrait but to also remember to capture cherished every day, such as naps, cuddles, homework time and many other rarely though about photographic moments.

The icing on the cake is right under every photo in the book, the settings she used to get the photograph. While these settings are not going to be exact for everyone who tries them, they give a starting point. I could have used these tips when learning to use my DSLR.

Even though I consider myself fairly accomplished with my camera, I am sure I will refer to this book often for inspiration and tips.

I would recommend this book to every couple as they begin their journey together. I would make a great wedding or baby shower gift.
