What can we say about Bruschetta? Bruschetta is so popular that it is served in almost every restaurant. Thousands of variations exist but I prefer the more traditional ingredients and preparations of Bruschetta--simple but classic, with juicy tomatoes, spicy garlic, sweet basil, and rich extra-virgin olive oil. 



ONLY FRIDAY 56 PARTICIPANTS MAY USE THE LINKY.

Book Beginnings leave your links in the comments if you didn't join in the Friday 56.

"The results of your tests are in. You have what is known as celiac disease," the specialist said on that fateful September 12, 2013. At first I didn't respond. I needed a minute to actually let those words sink in and process what I just heard. I was somewhat familiar with gluten since a few friends of mine do suffer with gluten intolerance, but I was not knowledgeable enough to really understand the implications. I told him that this could not be. I ate pasta and bread all year round but I was not sick all year round. It must be a mistake.

  1. Mmm, now I'm hungry. I love bread so if I ever am diagnosed with Celiac's, I am going to have a hard time.

  2. Your Friday 56 selection made me hungry, and the book's opening made me curious. I don't know much about celiac disease, but I've been hearing a lot about it lately.
    Thank you for hosting The Friday 56.

  5. Bruschetta is one of my all-time favourite Italian things, coming a close second to pizza. I would love to be able to make it properly myself. A friend of mine found out she was gluten-intolerant and was heart-broken for quite a while so I may have to tell her about this cook book! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

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?!
