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.

5/5

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…
