Writing the Natural Way by Gabriele Lusser Rico

Purchased (from BOMC2):
Hungry Girl:  300 Under 300--300 Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Dishes Under 300 Calories by Lisa Lillien

I also received these lovely journals from papercoterie.  They were having a grand opening promo of $40 free toward any order awhile back (thanks to Being Tazim for the heads up) so I was able to order these three personally customized journals and all I paid for was the shipping! Check them out.  They have gorgeous products!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. You do look like you had a great week in books coming there. :) Hope you enjoy them all and have a great week!

  2. Lady In Waiting was such an awesome read. I adored that book.

    The Hungry Girl book has some great ideas. I only wish she wouldn't use ingredients that are hard to find/expensive so often.

  3. Ohhhh...The Hungry Girl 300 looks like one I should check out! Enjoy all your new books Michelle.

  4. I love Hungry Girl but hate when she uses ingredients that have to be mail ordered. She does have some very good low cal ideas though!

  5. The journals are wonderful and I know you will treasure them. Have a great week kiddo!

  6. You had a lot of great wins! The Song of the Silk Road sounds really good to me.

  7. Thanks for stopping by! I SO love my books. Hope I was able to spark some interest in some titles!

    This Hungry Girl book has some awesome three ingredient recipes. Several of them will work well with my lower carb eating lifestyle now. Can't wait to try them!
