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!

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 be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
