Book Review: Roadfood

So are you thinking about a road trip in the United States?

Have you wondered what in the world am I going to eat?

Have no fear Roadfood is here

This is the 10th edition of this book and it is fabulously written and organized.

The book is grouped by region of the country and then a directory of good eats is provided for each state.

What makes the book useful beyond just naming the restaurants is that they give a paragraph, or more, description as well as all pertinent information (address, phone number, and web page).

The books is a fun time to read even if you aren't planning a trip...myself I love learning about different places to eat.

So be sure to pick up a copy of peruse all of the options out there.

The link above the book does take you to Amazon...BUT it is not an affiliate link and I will receive no compensation should you purchase through it.

I do want to disclose that I was provided a copy of this book for review through Blogging for Books.

Book Review: Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations

Let me start by saying that I don't have any issues with grains...they get along just fine with my digestion system.

HOWEVER I have a number of friends and family members who are not so friendly terms with grains and so I selected Against All Grain Celebrations by Danielle Walker to review for you all.


Like all good cookbooks there are beautiful pictures, and that is the first thing I look for.  I want to know what the author expected some of these recipes to look like (then next I scan ingredient lists to make sure there aren't too many OUT there ingredients).

Danielle's recipes are easy to follow and put together and contain items you can find in just about any grocery store.

She's got you covered for all the celebrations you could possibly want to host, or attend.

You can stylishly present gluten-free and dairy-free dishes that happen to be paleo too (it checks off so many boxes).

Your mouth will water when you see the photos but when you taste it...OH so delicious!

Book Review: The Full Catastrophe Travels Among the New Greek Ruins


James Angelos has crafted a witty and eye opening account of the Greek economic crisis.  He doesn't hold back with his opinions and was able to get many of the Greek citizens to share with him some of their "tricks" for not paying taxes.

It astounded me that amount of corruption and cheating that took/takes place.  The mindset of the people is that the government should give to them not them to the government...but they seem to miss the does the government get money if not from the people?

You can't afford social programs, health care, education, etc without the support of taxes from the people.

The amount of ruin that the Greeks suffered is really mind blowing.

James does a great job of explaining everything and not bogging you down in is written easily enough for anyone to read and enjoy.

Prior to this book I didn't understand at all why the Greek government was in such a terrible state and why the government was collapsing.

This isn't a book you take to the beach but it is a great book to during the cold winter while cuddled up under a blanket with some hot chocolate/tea/coffee/golden milk (whatever your preference is).

I do need to mention that I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
