When in Doubt, Add Butter is this month’s selection for book club. An enjoyable, lighthearted and fun read. It would be a perfect summer beach read. I’m not going to the beach anytime soon but a nice warm sunny day in the backyard would work too!

I’ve got a foodie romance novel that crosses the pond! Sugar & Spice follows Lilly, a Southern native, who cooks and caters in Nashville on a research trip to Cornwall for her new reality TV show. She’s determined to make the show a success after her ex manager and fiancee cheats on her.

After something crazy like almost 800 posts I feel what could I possibly do to keep the flavor alive on the blog? It certainly makes me think harder about new combinations and flavors. A bowl of brown bananas has to be used for banana bread, and luckily the variations for banana bread are pretty endless!

I’m still having a love affair with curds. Now that it’s summer the zingy sweetness is so refreshing and irresistible. The lemon curd here isn’t paired with just any plain cake but an almond based cake that has a more dense crumb and a fluffy “fast” meringue made with marshmallows.
The vegan romance novel that I reviewed a few months ago has a sequel! Skinny B Gets Hitched continues where the first book left off. Clementine is running her successful and tofutastic new restaurant, ‘Clementine’s No Crap Cafe’, and after a whirlwind romance is planning a wedding to her carnivore beau, Zach.
