Dinner at Home and the Best Gift Ever!

Wedding registries are a gift not only for the bride and groom but also for those who're shopping for a gift that will help them start their lives off on the right foot; giving them a boost up, and forward, with positive momentum. Cash gifts are great at this too; but, I think I may have just found the very best gift to give a bride and groom-to-be (or those who are newly married) "The Holy Grail" of a must have book outside of the Bible itself:

"Dinner at Home"
by Anjanette Barr
"Advice and Encouragement for the Untrained Home Cook".

For any person thrown into a kitchen as they're coming of age and into their own or for a woman who has struggled to figure out what exactly she needs in her kitchen, what recipes are really saying when they show a capital "T", and how to make an edible dish that doesn't include burnt toast and runny eggs... this book is edifying, vibrant, truth telling awesome-sauce! 

Not only that, the author is so human! You actually walk away feeling as though you have known her your whole life and that she's a safe voice to turn to within all of your kitchen experiments gone wrong.

Kitchen shows might be fun to watch (Worst Cooks in America anyone?); however, as a viewer, trying to pick-up tips and tricks while learning can be quite the challenge! You're left feeling just as over-whelmed as before but perhaps able to smile a bit more. 

Anjanette to the rescue! In her book, "Dinner at Home", she'll make you smile, she'll inspire you, and help guide you into "home cook" greatness by sharing easy-to-follow, step-by-step recipes from her home to yours. Keep her book at hand and use it like you would to

best reference book ever, it's the book that keeps on giving!

Seriously, never again will I be left scratching my head at what to buy a newlywed. Registry or not, I'll always be adding this book into my shopping cart of gifts to give because once you've found something that's helped you; well, you're meant to help the next person you come across who needs it.

"Dinner at Home"
a novel idea
and one written so you'd be able to experience the joys of a home cooked meal.
Confidence and joy found in a book.
Burnt toast no more!

Towanda Forever!

If you don't know what I mean, check out "Fried Green Tomatoes"; Towanda's a great alter ego of laughter and fearlessness. Exactly what you'll be experiencing in the kitchen before you know it!

Cheers to your inner-Towanda. She's in there and it's time to let her out.
