Its Fashion Flash Monday!

Fashion Flash Book ReviewI am so excited that Bobbi of Date  Like a Grown-Up  is hosting Fashion Flash for the first time.  IMO  Date  Like a Grown-up is the best  online source of relationship advice.  She  has an incredible insight into  what is going on in a man’s  mind and a  unqiue talent to  tell you how to use this  info in  your life.  While her site is focused on dating, I  have  found her advice invaluable   for dealing  with men  in  both personal and  professional  situtions. Bobbi is a rock star and   I predict that she will become a major  voice.

Fashion Flash Book ReviewFashion Flash Book Review:  Celebrate by Pippa Middleton

It seems to be some kind of universal law.  The first thing people do  when they become famous is to write a book.  If they are infamous, they write a confessional.  If  they become famous with their reputations intact, they write a cook book.

Pippa Middleton is the sister of Kate, future  Queen of England and  grew up working in  her family’s party goods company.   While this would not seem to be enough credentials  for a 400 page cookbook, I was  charmed  and impressed  by her comprehensive party plans.

Divided by season and with a throughly  British tone, Celebrate offers dozens of recipes, decorations, activities and  specialty drinks. This past year winter lingered into April and I  warmed up my house with Pippa’s recipes for a totally English leg of  lamb, rosemary roasted potatoes, and cauliflower  cheese.   For  dessert I followed Pippa’s recommendation for  a heary apple crumble.

This weekend I planned a picnic with Pippa’s cornish pasties, but the weather was grey and soggy.  No problem.   These meat  filled pasties were the perfect meal to watch the return of Poldark to Masterpiece Theatre.( Any  other Poldark fans out there?)

And I’ve saved the best for last.  Originally $50, its been remaindered at $7.99 on the  Barnes and Noble  sales table.
