Idiot's Guides in Full Color

I love this book, and let me stress that you do not need to be an idiot to enjoy it. Using that term just means it is illustrated and fully detailed on each recipe and how to make them.
I first tried the Boston Baked Beans recipe and it was so good that we ate it all before I remembered I needed a photo, so I chose another recipe to check out.
Pumpkin French Toast Casserole
I chose this recipe because Fall is in the air and pumpkin is on the brain. Mix breakfast foods and pumpkin together and you can't go wrong! So Pumpkin French Toast Casserole it was. Man, it was delicious too! My only criticism is I like some pan sear crust on my french toast, and with the slow cooker you will never get that crispy crust you look for. So while I enjoyed it, I think I will stick to french toast in the pan.
I can't wait to do more, and frankly, make the beans again. They were AMAZEBALLS! 
Definitely a great choice in the Idiot's Guide collection!

5/5

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?!
