#98: The Romney Family Table Cookbook - Ann Romney

Home is where good things happen. For the Romney family, the heart of the home is the kitchen. Pull up a chair as Ann Romney invites you into her home and kitchen, combining some of her favorite foods with memories of raising five boys (such as coming home to find her young son completely covered in Marshmallow Fluff). Part insider look, part cookbook, The Romney Family Table offers an irresistible blend of personal reflections, family photos, homegrown traditions, and more than 130 mouthwatering recipes that have bound a family together through the generations. Having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998, Ann is donating her proceeds from book sales to the Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston for the great work they do toward treatments and cures for neurological diseases.

AUTHOR BIO:
Ann Romney places primary importance on her role as a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. As First Lady of Massachusetts, she worked to focus attention on the challenges facing at-risk youth and served as the Governor s Liaison to the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, she has volunteered much of her time to raise awareness of the disease. She and her husband, Mitt, celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary this year. They have five sons, five daughters-in-law, and twenty-two grandchildren.

REVIEW:
Before reading this cookbook I really didn't know much about the Romney family, except that Ann's husband is an American politician of some sort. It was nice to learn more about the man and not the politics, but even nicer to learn about his family life.
As I went through the recipes, I found something I hadn't tried or made before.
Sweet Potato Muffins.
The recipe makes the muffins sound so delicious. With a walnut streusel topping, they'd have to be a hit! At least, this was my thinking. So I made them during our Canadian Thanksgiving and took them over to my sister's house. 
They were as big a hit as I thought they would be!
My son, the pickiest of eaters even says I need to make them again and again. That floored me! My brother-in-law had a few, and I had to leave him some behind when I went home. 
I expected them to be good, but didn't expect the response I got.
Now I can't wait to try something else I haven't had before. Believe me when I say there is enough in there.
So dear readers, if you are looking for a cookbook with comfort foods, you have stopped on the right review. This book is definitely on the line for comfort foods. Check it out!!!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

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
