Library books

I went to our local library for the first time since last summer today. (Library fines.) I'm so excited about my finds.

She's got me wanting to try my hand at sourdough bread.

He's got me wanting to try making homemade spinach and beet pasta. (It's so pretty. But I need a pasta maker.)

And "feast"your eyes on this!

Peanut Butter and Snickers Fudge Sauce for Ice Cream

I think the title says it all. Don't you?

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 jar smooth peanut butter (approx 1/3 cup)
3 Tbs dark brown sugar
1 king-size Snickers bar (approx. 3 oz.) broken into pieces
1 Tbs dark corn syrup

Place all of the ingredients in a saucepan and heat gently. When everything has melted, raise to a simmer, stirring and scraping the pan for about 3 minutes.

Also picked this up on CD. Will I like it as much as Kite Runner?

That's funny. I had that very Bread Bible book checked out last year for at least a month. I think you will get better use out of it than I did. I had good intentions, but I'll admit something here.. our bread maker broke lately and yesterday was the first day that I have made whole wheat bread in loaf pans... ever. I used your recipe and it turned out great.

I never comment but always want to, so I did. You should write your own cook book, I would buy it. A Thousand Splendid Suns is far better than The Kite Runner(my opinion, for what it's worth). I can't wait to hear what you think of it. Your blog is so fun and I hope you don't mind me dropping in, plus I have to steal a few recipes from time to time!

A thousand Splendid Suns will not disappoint you. At least I loved it. I won't be sad if you need someone to test all the yummy concoctions you discover out of these other library finds!

I don't know what I'd do Katherine without your blog at nighttime--especially with Cameron gone so much. I am so entertained by all of your ideas. I love it. Miss you .

I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns as much if not more than Kite Runner. I must admit I am partial to books with a female main character rather than a male - not sure why - maybe because I'm a female! Also - they have made Kite Runner into a movie - have you seen it yet? Enjoy reading. I just finished "Love Walked In" - it was a good read too.

For the past few years I have been eating bread made from the recipes from the bread bible. Adam LOVES that book. Enjoy!

Come on over, I have a pasta maker!! I love that you check out cookbooks at the library, I do it to. They always look so lonely don't they? And let me know how the sour dough goes, thats something I've been thinking about trying recently (today actually).

Katherine: We need to get together for the home made pasta. Rhett got one for Christmas and has been going hog wild. So far he's made normal, wheat and tomato.
