REVIEW:
I wanted this book because I married Italian and we eat a lot of Mediterranean foods already. I just wanted better knowledge and more recipes to deal with. When I browsed through, the hubby chose this Italian bread salad for me to make.
Panzanetta
This 'bread salad' is called Panzanetta. It's generally made with leftover ciabatta bread, plum tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and some herbs, oil, vinegar and spices. I wasn't sure I would like it, but it was surprisingly delicious! For my first time having it, I was surprised at the great flavor and texture. The bread didn't get soggy, it just absorbed all the flavors. I can't wait to make it again and again, plus try much more out as well.
I also loved being able to use herbs from my indoor garden. That was a nice touch.
I definitely recommend this book and the series of cookbooks it fits with. I think I have them all!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
