Quantcast

On An Old Hollywood Chat with Emma Straub and Laura Moriarty

I got The Chaperone from a Kindle daily deal because it sounded interesting, and I ended up absolutely loving it. I got completely sucked into the story, into the time period, all of it. I had never heard of Orphan Trains before and I was so intrigued.

Thanks for the excellent interviews, AHP! I am definitely moving Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures up on my to-read list!

On The Carrot-Almond Breakfast Cake

@cashmere velvet candy cane I like the idea of adding the bananas in instead of eggs. Would add a really good flavor to the cake, too.

On The Carrot-Almond Breakfast Cake

IMO raisins in carrot cake are never optional ;). And always get the golden raisins... SO GOOD. This cake sounds great! Thanks for sharing!

On Interview With a Person Who Thought She Was Reincarnated

Really, really enjoyed this piece. Especially, "You have a lot of Laura’s genes, you were raised to accentuate her tendencies. In some very real way, you have effectively brought your aunt back from the dead." SO INTERESTING & UNIQUE!
