REVIEW:
I love this book!
I made two recipes. On the same night. For the same meal. Suppertime.
I hadn't had turkey burgers before, and I love a good salad, so I felt like I couldn't go wrong.
I was right!
Turkey Burger
With Mayo, Tomato & Lettuce only.

Pasta Salad
With pasta, arugula, tomatoes, onion, peas, mayo, salt & pepper.
These dishes went together in perfect harmony. Both were fresh and didn't leave a heavy feeling, though you would think it might.
Best part is, the hubby and son approved. Two of the pickiest eaters on the planet.
Yep, can't wait to experiment some more from this book. It's awesome. It takes you, literally, step-by-step through the recipes. Making them idiot proof. I kid you not.
Just be sure to read recipes through to the end before you start. That way you won't be surprised by anything. This is a great book for anyone, whether you have culinary experience, or not.

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
