  • Features over 750 full colour images
  • Includes Recipe Choosers for each chapter listing all the dishes that can be cooked for each seasonal ingredient
MY OPINION:
When I saw this book, I knew I had to get it. I love knowing what foods are in season and best to be consumed. With my love for cooking, I was eager, and chose two recipes.
 First main course. Of course.
Tomato, Bean and Zucchini Stew
I don't eat vegetarian often. I'm a meat chick. Well, you should know that by my Beef Ambassadorship.... anyways, I enjoyed this dish. The beans filled me up the way meat does, and the best part is, being a diabetic beans are really good for me. (They're high in fiber.) Plus, I'm a bit of a zucchini-virgin... I mean, I've had it, but never really cooked it before... so didn't know what to expect. Was really friggin' good!  
Best part is, the whole house smelled so good for hours afterwards. (Seriously, it's 3 hours past and it still smells amazing in here.) 
So now onto the second dish I tackled. Dessert.
Apple and Blackberry Brown Betty
OMG!! This was divine!!!
I can't have tons of sugar and this only had a couple teaspoons in the whole thing. It was sweetened naturally with the fruit and ice cream. It was so good! It hit the spot after that main dish. And it's also one I think I will make again and again.
I look forward to cooking some more out of this book. I definitely look forward to checking out each season as it comes, and mark my words, I will be cooking seasonally from it!

5/5

  2. A dessert with only a few teaspoons of sugar is one I can have. It looks delicious!

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
