Re: Amazing Writers - Helen Humphreys and Elisabeth Harvor

Two Canadian authors whose work I really enjoy are Helen Humphreys ... I recently read "Leaving Earth" by Helen Humphreys. It had that most excellent of qualities: it made me slow down reading at the end so I wouldn't have to leave the characters. [spoiler]It's set in the 30's on and abov...

Re: Book Review - how much detail?

Reviewing a book poses a dilemma. With a simple "This book is great" nobody is going to feel compelled to rush out and get a copy. With a description of the structure, plot, etc. many will feel the book has been "ruined". What level of detail do forum members here want? Mr. Nove...

Re: Tea Biscuits

The other thing that drives me nuts about her [Rachael Ray] is that she throws EVERYTHING into the garbage. Why doesn't she have a compost bowl?? I've seen her put egg whites in the garbage bowl when she only wanted the yolks. (!) And I hate it when she removes the seeds from tomatoes and throws it...

Nutella

I first saw a jar of Nutella in my late teens. Then, the idea of spreading chocolate on bread made me laugh out loud. But recently, Nutella has featured enticingly in a couple of episodes of Mario Batali's show "Ciao America", so when I saw it in a grocery store a couple of days ago, I pic...

The way the word "phonetic" is spelt. Was that supposed to be funny?
