Book Club: Orange Is The New Black

First of all, thanks for all the nice comments about the pasta! For my bridal show my mom gave me this pasta maker attachment for my KitchenAid standing mixer.  But they also have hand cranked ones too.  The dough is simple: eggs, flour and salt.  And voila, homemade pasta! 


My latest book for book club was Orange Is The New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison.  Everyone was pretty much a fan of the book and thought it was really interesting becasue obviously I don't know anything about prison.  During the whole book though I kept thinking, "wow, Martha Stewart was in a place like this too!"  Overall an interesting and fun read!

Clever title. Of course now I'm wondering what the author was in prison for.

Hey Carol- I just got your comment about Mykonos. My biggest tip? Stay on the islands! They are beautiful and breathtaking, and Athens gets old after a few days...
