  1. What genre do you like? I am about to start Woman in the Window (thriller). I recently finished and loved This Much Country by Kristin Knight Pace (memoir). Check out my Instagram @bookloverspizza for tons more!

  2. I’ve been checking out audio books from my local library. I can listen while cleaning house, walking, at the gym, cooking, etc! I love historical fiction and mysteries.

  3. You’re the only one I know who watches Jane the Virgin. People! You are missing out! I don’t like Jason, but I do miss Michael. I’m also team Rafael at the moment, but if Jason gets his memory back, I’m going to be just as torn as Jane!

    1. Yay! We can talk about the show:) I agree, Jason just isn’t the same! I want Michael to come back! I am sure there will be lots of twists this season:)

  4. Your boys are so handsome! …..and growing so quickly. (They all do, huh?)

  5. Here’s a few recommendations for something fun to read:

    The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living (4.5 stars on Amazon) by Louise Miller
    The Late Bloomer’s Club (4.5 stars on Amazon) by Louise Miller

    I absolutely loved both of these books! Can’t wait for her to do something else. Hope this helps 🙂

  6. Just finished “Save Me the Plums” by Ruth Reichl. It was fantastic! Also, “The Island of Sea Women” by Lisa See was wonderful!

  7. If you need some good reads try any of Lisa See’s books. I loved them all. She has a new one out, but haven’t had a chance yet. Her first “Gold Mountain ” was a favorite. I have pre ordered your cookbook. Can’t wait. I don’t cook as much since Glen passed, but still love cookbooks. Love your blog and it keeps me young. 76 inJune and can’t believe it. Thanks, Gail R.

    1. Hi Gail-your note made my day! It is so good to hear from you. I hope all is well and we really appreciate your support over the years. Take care!
