Citrus – Book Review

Posted on

Citrus is the first recipe book that I had ever read cover to cover. Maybe I read it because I had to write the review but then again I realized that the book was exciting and not just another recipe book.

Citrus by Valerie and Victoria

Citrus by Valerie Aikman-Smith and Victoria Pearson unravels the entire family of citrus fruits, lemon, lime, grapefruit, mandarin, orange, you name it! Each recipe is wonderfully and uniquely crafted with utmost passion and creativity. The recipes are categorized by fruit type. You can also find an index with dishes by course which I find very helpful. There is this whole array of food you can make with citrus fruits as a main ingredient that I had not known or imagined before. This book is an eye opener, especially as the winter approaches. I can’t wait to try more of the recipes from this book.

This book was given to me by Blogging For Books for FREE in return for my review.

Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis

Posted on

This is the story of Adam discovering a collection of postcard poems written by Gabe to Huck for 60 years after their marriage. Intrigued by the collection and devotion to mail poems every friday to his love, Adam sets out to discover the love story of Huck and Gabe and the secret to their long lasting and devoted marriage. At the end he discovers new hope in marriage.

The Idea behind the book was intriguing. More so was the fact that a husband could send poem postcards to his wife every Friday for 60 years. It is just beyond imagination! Within the book there are pointers to selfless love and commitment to married life. This is emphasized by a strategy the author calls “The Long Division Problem”. The book paints a neat love story between Huck and Gabe, tremendously in love and at the same time going through the ups and downs every couple faces in their life. I liked the parts where I got to know more about life in the early 1900s. I liked it for its story line and fell in love with the love story of Gabe and Huck!
