my hubby is making Panettone today, from the recipe in The Bread Winner's Cookbook. we're about 20 minutes into the first rise, and it smells delicious. a sweet bread packed with orange and lemon zest, raisins, and honey.

I'm on vacation this week (yay!!), so there is plenty of cooking on the schedule: mushroom barley soup, coq au vin, couple more loaves of bread. . . possibly some home made pasta. . we shall see!

Cimmerian City may go down in my books as one of the worst books i have ever read. this, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens when you watch too many Milla Jovavich movies.

Review of Cimmerian City. Hope that link works, it's not my usually review hosting site.

and the book i'm desperaly trying to finish? it's what happens when you watch too much discovery channel.

all the books i think are crap seem to be getting phenominal reviews on Amazon. creative review editing by the author or publisher? reviews written by friends of the author? i'm not sure. everyone else gives the books 3 to5 stars, and i think it's crap. what's going on here?
