No recipe today my friends. 

Please don’t panic. I have not fallen out of love with food. I’ll be sharing two new recipes with you before the week is complete. If you can’t wait that long click over to my recipe file where more than 400 recipes are just waiting to become your new best friend. 

I am taking a little recipe break, because I have recently read a book that is so amazing and inspirational, I couldn’t help but tell you about it. Just in case you know how to read, and enjoy doing so on a regular basis. 🙂 

Unbroken is written by Laura Hillenbrand. It’s the biography of Louie Zampernini, Olympian Athlete and World War II survivor.
It is difficult to read at times, due to the insanely harsh and unbelievable conditions Mr. Zampernini experienced during the war. However, the story is compelling, riveting and immensely moving. It’s the kind of book that makes you grateful just to lay your head down at night on a clean pillow in the safety of your own home. Page after page I found myself in complete awe of Louie Zampernini, his constant will to live, the strength of his character, and his kindness to those suffering around him. It left me wanting to be better, do better, live better. 

Read it, my friends. Your time will be well spent. 

I would love to order a copy of this book for TWO of you. To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment telling me one of your favorite books, and why you loved it. Also, please leave your email address with your comment. You can enter from now until Sunday night at midnight. The winners will be announced Monday morning bright and early with the sunshine. 

Have a good day, everyone! See you back here soon. Calories will be included in the next several posts. 🙂

  1. Just a comment from what I read from a few others: These Is My Words was a fabulous read. There are two sequels to it that most people are not aware of that are equally as good: Sarah's Quilt, and The Star Garden.
