On My Attempt To Make The Fritters I Loved As A Kid

I am so making these.I have everything, INCLUDING the cottage cheese which may be out of style but I eat it all the time, with S&P and onion & garlic powder - dip celery into it - or with applesauce and cinnamon. Yum.

On The Cost Of Being A Kid In A Classic Adventure Novel

The Mixed Up Files of Basil blahblahblah...THAT is what that book is called?! I have been trying to find it for years. I haven't read it since I was a kid, so I had no idea what it was called or who wrote it or anything. I'd ask librarians and nothing. I would have never picked that title out of a lineup, but it is absolutely the book. Hitting the library tomorrow! MY GRATITUDE TO YOU FOREVER,BRENT COX.

Well, I'm glad my greedy husband didn't polish off the Eagle Rare last night. I will celebrate with that.

On Romance Novels, The Last Great Bastion Of Underground Writing

@barnhouse The Golden Puma. I just looked on Amazon - is it worth getting the hardcover import for 224.31? Or should I go for the $0.01 mass market paperback?

On Romance Novels, The Last Great Bastion Of Underground Writing

Hey! That first book is by Margaret Way! The only Harlequin romance I ever owned - and kept - is A Lesson in Loving by Margaret Way. I still have it. I don't even know where I got it, a garage sale maybe? I went through a Harlequin phase but for some reason I loved this story and have never been able to throw it away. She had liquid topaz eyes if I remember and tousled rose-copper hair. Now I'm going to have to read it again.
