Behind, behind, behind. I’ve got several reviews to write and still haven’t finished The Jezebel Remedy. About the only thing I’m accomplishing this week is reading TheSkimm. I’m hoping to get some serious reading done this weekend. I’ll also be doing some cooking this weekend, and on that note I have another cookbook to share with… Continue reading The Cookbook for Everyone
