If anyone has done a post recently asking for book recommendations, chances are I left a comment raving about this book, The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Consider this another recommendation, I loved this book.
It is about African American maids working in white households during the early 1960s and told from the point of view of two maids (the help) and a white woman, Miss Skeeter.
And, this book is going to be released this summer as a movie! With Emma Stone as the main character, Miss Skeeter!
And remember the last book we read for book club, Orange Is The New Black? While the main character is in prison, they try to create new sorts of "recipes" out of their usual food to make things more interesting. The signature dish of our main character was something called "prison cheesecake" which she made out of everyday items she could find in the prison kitchen such as Laughing Cow cheese, vanilla pudding and coffee creamer.
Last book club we were all intrigued over the idea of this cheesecake, so last night Carrie made it according to the recipe in the book and we all tried it. Not bad at all!
