AR Book Club is available to anyone.  Our next discussion will be on Saturday, February 11.  Cook up some of the recipes, read the book or do both!  Here is the line up:

Scones and Bones by Laura Childs is the book we will discuss on Saturday, February 11.

Scones & Bones

Devil's Food Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke is the book we will discuss on Saturday, February 24.

Devil's Food Cake Murder [Book]

Don suggested that a book be somewhat masculine. 
I hope this fits into his idea of an interesting story!
Heat by Bill Buford is the book we will discuss on March 10.

For the March 24 selection, RedApple suggested we read The 100 Mile Diet; A Year of Local Eating by Alisa Smith.  As I looked up the author, it appears that another of her books may be similar.  Without benefit of both books in hand, I'm guessing that the content may be close enough, that  Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100 Mile Diet could be read as an alternative.

I hope these selections are books that you can obtain!  Purchase, borrow or check these books out of your local library.

Ordered both books, although our library did not have The 100-Mile diet so I ordered Plenty. Thanks for getting these to us so quickly so we can get them and read them in time.

Thanks for posting the next 2 books. I have finished Scones & Bones and Devils Cupcake. I like to be ahead :) Sometimes our library doesn't have them either and they tell me I can get them from a book store- which I really do not want to buy 'cuz I know I will not read no more than once. I'm looking forward to the discussion of Scones and Bones! I really enjoyed reading that book. Kept me thinking the whole time!

I was thinking of asking different questions throughout the day for us to talk about. Not everyone can join in at the same time, and I would like to hear from as many people as possible.

Our library doesn't have the 100 Mile Diet or Plenty.

About Me
Married and mother
My favorite things to cook
New England style food--vegetarian baked beans and brown bread. For Christmas, we need Kringla, and rosemary fudge. Valentine's Day isn't the same without cinnamon hearts, clove hearts, and peppermint hearts (these are all cream cheese mints). For Thanksgiving we use my great grandmother's plum pudding recipe to make figgy pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, for each batch of cookies that are baked, 1/2 dozen go into the freezer. On Christmas, we assemble all the 1/2 dozens on a platter. It's a wonderful variety! The kids want 2 dozen of each kind of candy saved!
My cooking triumphs
New recipes! We've (the family) all won at state fairs. We love to come up with new ideas, then experiment!
My cooking tragedies
When I was called to the hospital because of a family emergency, I forgot to turn off the stove while cooking chicken. I returned home to a house that smelled awful! That was just a little while before overnight guests arrived! Another time, when I was canning sweet pickles, I had 7 quarts of hot sticky pickles in glass jars come crashing to the floor. Talk about a mess!
