I picked this up for book club, and first LOVE it. It was captivating and charming but its slowed down at some parts and I was loosing interest. I did read and I would give it a 3.9 out of 5 stars. If you usually like this type of books or if you are in a mood for a light, fluffy contemporary romance, I’d definitely recommend this one

"What if the Lift driver who finds your cheating boyfriend's phone holds the directions to true love?
'Who are you and why do you have my boyfriend's phone?'
'He left it in my car. You must be the blonde in the red dress? I'm the Lift driver who dropped you two off earlier.'

And with these words, the life of the brunette and t-shirt wearing Maya Maas is turned upside down. Having planned to surprise her boyfriend, she finds herself single and stranded in an unknown city on her birthday.

So when the mystery driver rescues Maya with the suggestion that she cheers herself up at a nearby beach town, she jumps at the chance to get things back on track.

1) A Garlic Press:

A garlic press is a must-have tool for any home chef. With this gadget, you can efficiently mince garlic cloves in seconds. This is a great time-saver if you're making a dish that calls for minced garlic. Simply put the cloves into the press and squeeze! You'll have perfectly minced garlic ready to be used in your recipe.

If you don't have a garlic press, you can use a knife to mince the garlic by hand. However, this takes more time and can be tricky to get the right consistency. A garlic press is definitely worth the investment if you want to make cooking easier. Pressing fresh garlic into your dishes saves time and gives them a more intense flavor. There's no need to use jarred garlic when you have a garlic press at your disposal.

2) A Spiralizer:

A spiralizer is a kitchen gadget that allows you to turn vegetables into noodles. This is a great way to get your daily veggies while also enjoying a delicious, drunken noodles recipe. A
ll you need to do is insert the vegetable of your choice into the spiralizer and twist! In seconds, you'll have perfectly spiralized noodles ready to be cooked.

If you're trying to eat healthier, then a spiralizer is a great tool to have in your kitchen. With this gadget, you can make veggie-packed dishes that are low in calories but high in flavor. You can also use a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles, which are commonly known as "zoodles."

3) A Food Processor:

A food processor is a versatile kitchen gadget that can be used for various tasks. You can quickly chop, slice, and dice vegetables with this tool. You can also use it to make sauces, dips, and spreads. If you're looking for a time-saving appliance, then a food processor is worth considering.

One of the great things about owning a food processor is making your baby food at home. Simply puree some fruits or vegetables, and voila! You've got healthy, homemade baby food free of preservatives and other additives. Plus, it's much cheaper than buying store-bought baby food.

4) A Slow Cooker:

A slow cooker is a kitchen appliance that can cook food for longer. This is a great way to make hearty, comfort foods like stews and soups. Simply add all of your ingredients into the slow cooker and let it do its job!

One of the best things about slow cookers is that they're very low-maintenance. Once you've added your ingredients, you can simply set it and forget it. This leaves you free to do other things while your food cooks. Plus, slow cookers are very energy-efficient so they won't increase your electricity bill.

These are four kitchen gadgets that will help you create culinary masterpieces. These tools will make cooking more accessible and fun, from a garlic press to a spiralizer. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start cooking!

#bookofthemonth - Sweet Bliss by Jennifer Bardsley

Tuesday, April 5, 2022

If small town romance and small town charms are your thing this books if so you. Its a light read, the story is sweet and the characters are intersting.

"Welcome to Harper Landing, a small town filled with people who believe in happy endings.

Left raising his newly orphaned nephew after a tragic accident, Aaron Baxter fears he’s not cut out to be a single dad. But to give baby Jack the life he deserves—and to find a peaceful refuge for himself—Aaron moves to the idyllic Pacific Northwest town of Harper Landing.

Julia Harper, descendant of the town’s founder and successful frozen yogurt shop owner, is mostly resigned to her role as the often-overlooked girl next door. But when the town newcomer, Aaron, reaches out for help with Jack, she finds herself yearning to take part in a sweet love story of her own.

To Aaron, the grace Julia extends is a balm for his aching heart and the guilt he feels over his sister’s death. To Julia, Aaron’s adoration is the key to finally realizing her own worth. With a baby in the middle, can these two hurting souls find completeness in each other?"
