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.

Blogging for Books

I love books, I love knitting so I am over the top about books about knitting! I was introduced to this site Blogging for books by fellow blogger Becca Forrest. She reviews a book here. This site Blogging for Books seems a perfect fit!

The minute I received this book I was enthralled. The first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful way this book was illustrated. Beautiful pictures grace the pages inviting the reader to pick up a ball of yarn and needles and get started. The easy to understand instructions combined with the fact that the projected are small, just a block at a time, invite knitters of every skill level to begin a project.

From skulls to roses, Celtic patterns to country stars this book has a little of something for every one.

I am an experienced knitter in my 50’s and my niece is a beginner in her teens, we both found many patterns we loved.
