November Reads and BW weekend throwback

summer throwback-2

summer throwback

Because really, we can all use a little reminder of summer once the weather starts turning chillier 🙂 {Plus I just found these photos again today…. so, thought I’d share here}

{Linking these up for Weekend in Black and White}

My very, very short non-diversified list of reads for November…

Delaney: a Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage by Molly Wizenberg
In a nutshell this has two of my favorite components for a fun read: Memoir and Foodie Book.

This continues the story of Molly’s first book (A Homemade Life) a follows the beginnings of Delancy, the restaurant opened by Molly and her husband. A fun read, filled with recipes and real life. 🙂 I think that’s what makes the memoirs good, sharing that life isn’t perfect, but still can be great if you allow it!

Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Food Critic by Ruth Reichl
The author was food critic for the New York Times, and this book chronicles her time spent there. So much fun to read. She literally goes in disguise while she is visiting restaurants for review. She really discovers who she is through these disguises. And her description in writing… oh. my. goodness. I never would have thought that reading two or three pages describing one meal would be fun to read, but I was captivated.


And that’s all I’ve got for the evening. 🙂

  1. Dear Ruth Anne,

    I think I would like both these books. By the way, have you read Velma Still Cooks in Leeway? It’s actually fiction but it is like a memoir and a foodie book. It’s also Christian.

    Enjoyed your black and whites, too.

    Love, Grandma
