8 Books to Read This Spring

Here are 8 Books to Read This Spring— shared by my big sister Susie.  You might remember her Summer Reading List– last year- which was greatly praised by RecipeGirl readers, and she shared a Fall List too.  She’s back today with her spring list.  Susie keeps a journal of all of the books she has read, and she gives them letter grades.  These books shared today all received an “A” grade by Susie!  I hope you find a few books in her list that might interest you for spring reading.

After my last list in the fall, I found myself failing miserably! It seemed that every book I read was only so-so at best, but finally, starting in December, I hit a string of fantastic books that I’m excited to share with you today. Happy reading….Susie!

Green Smoothie Waffles

It happened by accident, really.  I set out for the market early in the morning and gathered all of the ingredients to make green smoothies.  When I got home, I happened to glance at my KitchenAid Waffle Baker and thought… Hmmmm… could I?  So I decided to give it a shot.
