James Patterson is terrible; don't read that one!

Lori Z.

I've never been a Patterson fan either, but my mom certainly digs him. Sedaris' books, however, are ones that I sneak off to read, leaving the kids and my husband to figure out food and bedtime.


Julie and Julia is not worth reading - although it's a great movie! David Sedaris is awesome.


My husband and I have been canning our own jam and preserves for 6 years now and for the last 4 have not bought jam (we the occasional artisan jar). We've even gotten the kids (3 and 1 1/2 yrs) into it by taking them berry picking - strawberries, raspberries, blueberries. I don't think I've saved money this way, but there's something special about having a breakfast of homemade toast and jam. Our favorite canning book (we've done salsas and pickles from it too) is: Blue Ribbon Preserves by Linda Amendt.
