Auschwitz Lullaby  by Mario Escobar

The Recipe Box by Viola Shipman


Growing up in northern Michigan, Samantha “Sam” Mullins felt trapped on her family’s orchard and pie shop, so she left with dreams of making her own mark in the world. But life as an overworked, undervalued sous chef at a reality star’s New York bakery is not what Sam dreamed.
When the chef embarrasses Sam, she quits and returns home. Unemployed, single, and defeated, she spends a summer working on her family’s orchard cooking and baking alongside the women in her life—including her mother, Deana, and grandmother, Willo. One beloved, flour-flecked, ink-smeared recipe at a time, Sam begins to learn about and understand the women in her life, her family’s history, and her passion for food through their treasured recipe box.

As Sam discovers what matters most she opens her heart to a man she left behind, but who now might be the key to her happiness.



Interesting Finds




I like this Le Weekend Sweater

Door Puzzle

They say puzzles are the ultimate in self-care. I personally enjoy jigsaw puzzles and often have one on the table during the winter. It is a relaxing way to spend a few minutes or a few hours.




Beautiful plates to add to your Spring table.
