Lessons from Cranky Agnes #92

Eating for Your Beating Heart

There are very few recipes that couldn't be improved by the addition  of three-quarters of a pound of butter and a cup of heavy cream, but this is cold comfort when you're laid out like a slab of beef in intensive care, listening to the blood pound in your ears as you seriously consider going toward the light. Think before you eat, people: Food should be the life of you, not the death of you.

from Agnes and the Hitman, by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

Amen, Agnes. And bravo.

 A woman after my own heart, and a book that flew by way too quickly. Make this your quick Christmas read, it's set in sweltering South Carolina in the summertime...so it will help ease the onslaught of freezing temperatures (if you are in NorCenFla) and blizzards (if you are anywhere else, it seems!).

Love to all,
~the "who doesn't love a funny book about food, murder and love?" gal, Jess
