New Widget

When I started my blog I put in a widget listing books as I've read them. I like to reread books, so it was something to remind me of those books I've really liked, but sadly it was erased one time when I was changing my background. I kept meaning to start it again, so now I am. Hopefully it will be a place that you can reference if you're looking for a new book to read. Hope you enjoy it :)

It's Done!

All right everyone, here is the finished product for my sister's recipe book to help support 'Baby K' (We don't know his name yet...) Here is the link to my sister Shaina's blog,
and here is a copy of her post introducing her book. I'm so excited to buy a copy, she is an amazing cook! I know you will very much enjoy it. Thank you everyone for your support!

"My Recipe Book!!
I just finished my recipe book today!! I sent it through to Blurb and ordered a few copies for myself. So as of today, my book is now for sale! The book is about 8x8 square, and is a soft cover. It has all of the recipes that are posted on my sidebar, plus many others. The book has 98 pages and almost 100 recipes. It includes many color pictures, but not every recipe has a picture. I tried to include as many recipes as possible, without having the book get too expensive.The book is available through BLURB and here is a direct link to the book! The book is priced at $25.95.
(If anyone knows how to make a button that would use the above picture as a link either to my blog, or to blurb, could you let me know!! I'd love to be able to advertise this as much as possible.)
Also, if you click on the blurb link on the right-hand column of my blog, it will direct you to the blurb site to buy the book.
Also, I'm looking for some short testimonials, for those of you who have tried my recipes. When I get the button link set up, I'll make a more detailed post about the recipe book, the recipes contained in it, as well as comments from you, so more people will buy the book. If you are interested in helping me with this, email me your comments at kamyrensmiles@hotmail.com
Thank you so much!! "

Help for Baby K

My sister is going to have a baby and he is going to be a very special baby. He has a congenital heart defect, in that the right chamber of his heart did not grow, and recently they learned that he also has a cleft lip. Obviously he is going to need alot of surgeries and special care. He is their 5th baby, and already very much loved. His birthday is planned for Nov 4th.
If any of you know my sister, or ever been to her blog, she has posted alot of recipes and all of them yummy. I have never had a bad outcome from her recipes. Sooo, she is making a recipe book that will be out soon, to benefit and raise money for her special Baby K. Please see the follwing link to familiarize yourself with her book, and stay to enjoy her blog. She is very amusing and crafty. Please think about purchasing this recipe book when it comes available as it will go to a very special cause! Thank you!!!
