Time for a little “lite” reading

For those of you who have made New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier…my apologies!  I can’t believe how many of my recent posts are centered around dessert.  It’s getting a bit ridiculous. So, today some “lite” reading for those of you on a diet! 🙂

First off, Mark Bittman has a great article in the New York Time this week, “Fresh Start for a New Year? Let’s Begin in the Kitchen.” It’s great. Go read it.

Santa brought this sweet little book to Cate this year.

The Gift of Nothing by Patrick McDonnell is my current favorite children’s book…and it’s perfect for adults as well.  It’s simple, funny, with such a sweet message.  Everyone go buy it now. One for yourself and one for your best friend!

I have another book that I can’t WAIT to share with you…but wait I must as I’ve lent it to a friend and can’t take a picture.  Stay tuned!

  3. I’m not on a diet and my sweet tooth is bigger than ever (thanks to the dentist fixing it). Lay on the sweets!

    I should eat more vegetables, though. It’s true.

  4. Thanks for the heads up. Great piece–had to post myself.
    Go Chargers! Big game this weekend. I also posted a fantastic appetizer from Pioneer Woman in case you need some good football food.

  5. I LOVE this book!! My sister gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago and I just love it’s sweet message…glad Cate can enjoy it with you now too :o)

  6. Hey there, found your blog through a link on someone’s blog, etc. I don’t have this book but another one by same author/illustrator called “Hug Time” – me and my 2 girls (age 2, 4) love it. Thanks – this looks like a great blog to check in on.
