Cookbook Club and Happy Hour~~"Licking the Spoon" by Candace Walsh

Join me this month for another fun and delicious cookbook club meetup as we discuss "Licking the Spoon" by Candace Walsh~!

Recipes and cookbooks, meals and mouthfuls have framed the way Candace Walsh sees the world for as long as she can remember, from her frosting-spackled childhood to her meat-eschewing college years to her post-college phase as a devoted Martha Stewart's Entertaining disciple.

In Licking the Spoon, Walsh tells how, lacking role models in her early life, she turned to cookbook authors real and fictitious (Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart, Mollie Katzen, Daniel Boulud, and more) to learn, unlearn, and redefine her own womanhood. Through the lens of food, Walsh recounts her life’s journey—from unhappy adolescent to straight-identified wife and mother to divorcée in a same-sex relationship—and she throws in some dishy revelations, a-ha moments, take-home tidbits, and mouth-watering recipes for good measure. A surprising and rambunctiously liberating tale of cooking and eating, loving and being loved, Licking the Spoon is the story of how—accompanied by pivotal recipes, cookbooks, culinary movements, and guides—one woman learned that you can not only recover but blossom after a comically horrible childhood if you just have the right recipes, a little luck, and an appetite for life's next meal.'s how we will "roll":

1.   Meetup up PROMPTLY at 5:30 at The Blue Olive Restaurant and Bar.

2.    Please have read the book in it's ENTIRETY.....just does't work if participants have not read the entire book.  Licking the Spoon can be purchased on Amazon used or new .....or possibly for rent at the local library?

3.     You must have a recognizable picture of yourself on the website so I know who to look for.....Newbies are don't be shy :-)~~

5.     Fee is $7.50.  $5.00 will be handed back to you at the event.  2.50 goes to cover web and meetup fees as I don't charge yearly or "joining fee"......This also helps GREATLY reduce "the dreaded no-shows".....thanks for understanding :-).

The Blue Olive has an extensive HH menu priced from 3.00 to 6.00.  Items include hummus, baba ghanouj, tarama salada, sampler plate, feta and olives, garlic prawns, calamari, chicken kabob, tzatziki, mediterranean burger and fries, mediterranean salad, dolmathes, gigantes, avgolemono soup, lentil soup, and various sides.  House Wine is 5.00 a glass.

    Ooops, I got my dates wrong below. I still can't make the book club on March 26 so if anyone wants my book, it's still available.

    Greetings, I have been invited to spend the week of March 17 at the beach so I'm bailing on the book club meeting - and I hope you understand why! If anyone wants my book, I'm happy to pass it along as my gift to the gang. Let me know if you want it.
