Book reviews

200 Skills every cook must have by Claura Paul & Eric Trueille

I liked this book because it shows how to cut up various meats. This book would have come in handy the other day when my husband & I made lobster at home for the first time (although youtube did come to the rescue!). Another must buy book if you cook a lot of meat.

The complete leafy green cookbook by Susan Sampson

I have a hard time figuring out new ways to prepare leafy green veggies or you know, any veggies at all. This book had a plethora of recipes for every leafy green you could imagine and then some.

Hidden Girl: The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave by Hall, Shyima

I was surprised to find this was a YA book half way through reading this book. It's about a girl from Egypt whose family gets blackmailed into selling her to a family to be their slave. If you aren't already aware of how rampant human trafficking is this book will enlighten you.


  1. These all sound good!
    The cookbooks both sound helpful to me....cutting up meat is intimidating to me for sure!

    Hope you have a great weekend Kristy! :)

  2. Thanks, you too! :) I hope you can get your hands on these books!

  3. I am going to have to find the book Hidden Girl. I have always heard mixed reviews about it. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hi Kristy, this is an issue in Ukraine, as well, where I live as an American missionary. It is a heart breaking thing that anyone would have to live as a slave. I tried liking your page 3 times last night. Then I tried again this morning 3 times. Don't know why it's not letting me, but I"ll keep trying. I hope it is not a Ukraine things. Sometimes we get blocked due to our location.
