SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

August Book a Day #12: Most Useful Book

The Knitting Answer Book: Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face; Answers to Every Question You'll Ever Ask (Answer Book (Storey)) - Margaret Radcliffe Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking - Marcella Hazan, Karin Kretschmann

Everyone else seems to be doing cookbooks (a logical choice), so I thought I'd go in a slightly different direction, with The Knitting Answer Book.  Very useful for knitters.

 

Cookbook choice: The Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking, by Marcella Hazan.  If there's a bad recipe in it, we've yet to find it, in 15 years of cooking from it with regularity.
