Good Reads and Resources


All of these titles serve at times as inspiration, entertainment and escape.  Each one of these books has a home in my ever crowded bookcases that line the walls of my office.  A favorite way to treat myself is to a new volume full of recipes, stories and ideas.  I snuggle up on my couch with a cup of coffee and a warm blanket and spend hours in the world of books and food.
