Due to life being extremely busy of late, I’m only just getting round to writing about a book I received last year from Blogging for Books. When I made my last selection I can remember how great it was that there was finally a sewing book! Of course, I didn’t hesitate when choosing AT ALL.
Ive had this cookbook from Blogging For Books for a while now & I just haven’t gotten around to reviewing it on the blog yet. I chose to review Country Cooking from a Redneck Kitchen as I’m always interested in the Southern cooking style, especially when it comes to home cooked food & grilling. I initially flicked through it, like every other cookbook I own, and chose a couple of recipes that appealed to me.
The last book that I chose to review from Blogging For Books was Green Smoothies, written by Fern Green.
“Kickstart your metabolism, fire up your mind, and promote whole-body health. Discover the health-boosting benefits of smoothies, juices, tonics, and nut milks. Find the perfect juice to help detoxify your body, enhance your digestion, or invigorate your metabolism. Energize your day with 66 easy-to-follow, quick, and tasty recipes. Learn simple ways to incorporate more greens into your diet every day.”
I was very intrigued by the book to begin with as I’ve always liked the thought of having a daily smoothie to boost health. However, I’ve never really been a fan of making them as I just never know what to put in them, and what benefits certain ingredients have for my body.
Some months ago, I saw a book being blogged about that was a journal for a year, and each day had its own suggestive sentence that you completed. I enjoyed the style of the book and thought it was a nice idea to have a different type of diary that you could look back on to see what thoughts you were having on a particular day. I searched for the book and placed it on my Amazon wish list.
When I finally got around to choosing my next review book from Blogging For Books, I noticed a very similar book to the one I had seen before…only it was better and much more suited to someone like myself!
I’ve been drawn in by another painting book. I’ve been on the lookout for one for a while as the ones I got from the library a while ago just weren’t what I needed. When I draw or paint, I have to use a photo of whatever the subject is. I’ve never been any good at drawing what is in front of me; it’s just the way my mind processes images. Even if I sit with a view ahead of me, I find it easier to take a photo of that view and then use the photo as a guide…I hope that makes sense!
