When in Doubt, Add Butter

I have been a reading machine lately.

I would like to take a second to thank my children. Not for only being so stinkin cute, but for allowing me to read for pretty much 2 days straight. Playing together so nicely the last couple days has been amazing. Please continue this awesomeness! I understand a little bickering here or there, but for the most part lets just get along. You ladies have been great. And to Gatlyn, you are the man. You are so easy going and I love it. Thanks kids-Love ya!

I know, I know, I am ridiculous. But for real! I have seriously kept the house up and read 2 books this week. FYI-I didn't read at all Monday. Both were great quick reads and us moms need that! Am I right?

First book: When in Doubt, Add Butter By: Beth Harbison

I like chick lit books so this was right up my ally. If you don't like a book that is sometimes hard to follow keeps you guessing or even in tears. This is NOT the book for you;)

Here is a snip it for you.

"As far as Gemma is concerned, her days of dating are over. In fact, it’s her job to cater other peoples’ dates, and that’s just fine by her. At thirty-seven, she has her own business, working as a private chef, and her life feels full and secure. She’s got six steady clients that keep her hands full.

There’s Lex, the fussy but fabulous department store owner who loves Oysters Rockefeller and 1950s comfort food; Willa, who needs to lose weight under doctor’s orders but still believes butter makes everything better; a colorful family who may or may not be part of the Russian mob; an ├╝berwealthy Georgetown family; the picture-perfect Van Houghtens, whose matriarch is “allergic to everything”; and finally, a man she calls “Mr. Tuesday,” whom she has never met but who she is strangely drawn to.

For Gemma, cooking is predictable. Recipes are certain. Use good ingredients, follow the directions, and you are assured success. Life, on the other hand, is full of variables. So when Gemma’s takes an unexpected turn on a road she always thought was straight and narrow, she must face her past and move on in ways she never would have imagined. Because sometimes in life, all you need is a little hope, a lot of courage, and---oh yes---butter.

Great quick, read if you are looking for something!
