The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book Review

Posted on November 11, 2022 in 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

I received The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book the other day, and I have to say, these recipes are delightful.  My 25-year-old, daughter, is thrilled with this book.  She loves Harry Potter, and though the book is “Unofficial”, she is absolutely delighted to have been able to try these recipes.

What better way to celebrate your love of Hogwarts and its host of beloved characters than by bringing out your potions cauldron (or cocktail shaker) and mixing up a host of spectacular cocktails? Raise a toast in true wizarding world style with cocktails including: 

  • Golden Poptail Balls 
  • Headmaster’s Lemon Drop
  • Mad-Eye Lychee Martini 
  • Tea Leaf-Reading Earl Grey Cocktail 
  • Boozy Knickerbocker Glory
  • Christmas Party Punch
  • And many more! 

Chapter 1 of The Unofficial Hogwarts Cocktail Book tells you about the types of Glassware, and what you really need.  Then, Chapter 2, starts the amazing recipes.  This book has fan-filled recipes, and you’ll be drinking great cocktails for a long time.  I love this book, too.

The Christmas Party Punch will be served at our house this Holiday Season.

What you need:

  • 8 Cups Sparkling Wine
  • 1 1/2 cups Pomegranate Juice
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 Oranges sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish

Once Upon A Book Club is Fabulous

Posted on October 2, 2022 in 2022 Fall Gift Guide

My 25-year-old, daughter, loves Once Upon A Book Club.  She’s been using them for some time.  She loves that on different pages, there’s a present.  She loves reading, as well.  So, she reads to the certain page, the first present was page 13, I believe, then she opens her present where it tells her to.  The present is always something to do with the storyline.

So, what’s included?  A book, with an amazing story; presents, between 3-5; and much more.  The presents have been excellent, Sarah agrees.  This is the best Subscription Box we’ve found, dealing with books.  You get a wonderful book, and gifts to go with it.  The more you read, the better the gifts get.

Sarah said she wants this Subscription Box for Christmas.  You know, a continued, monthly box.  Which is a great idea for anyone, but a teacher; it’s a wonderful idea.  She teaches at an alternative school, and this is a great surprise for her to come home to.  It’s not expensive, and worth it!  It’s just $49 a month, and shipping is free.  You can’t beat that price.

SAFE Method Promotes Peace, Empowerment After Trauma

Posted on September 8, 2022 in 2022 Fall Gift Guide

Princeton, NJ, September 7, 2022 — Surviving sexual assault, attempted suicide and an arranged marriage is one thing. Processing all of that pain and living a full life proved to be something entirely different for speaker and author Poonam Bhuchar.

“In the shadows of emotional pain, survival can take priority over healing,” Bhuchar said. “Lasting reverberations of traumatic experiences can cripple decision-making skills, creep into relationships and leave scars on the people you love.”

Eventually, Bhuchar’s emotional trauma also took a physical toll. She suffered two strokes and temporary paralysis before beginning her long journey toward authentic healing.

Today, she shares her powerful story through speaking engagements and her book, SAFE From the Pain: Out of the Darkness Into a Life That’s Free, Happy, and Good.

Part memoir, part self-help revelation, SAFE From the Pain pairs Bhuchar’s inspiring story with the SAFE Method, which aims to help readers process emotional pain in healthy, productive ways so they can lead more fulfilling personal and professional lives.

In SAFE From the Pain, readers will learn:

– The four-step SAFE Method for working through emotions and regaining control.

– The impact that stress from emotional pain has on every aspect of life — including the workplace.

– How to overcome a victim mindset and accept responsibility — because ownership leads to action.

– Three types of forgiveness for freedom from society’s expectations, cultural beliefs and self-judgment.

– Why embracing one’s journey is essential to happiness, a bigger life purpose and alignment with one’s true self.

“Peace and empowerment after trauma are possible when you embrace your pain as part of your story,” Bhuchar said. “You can’t move forward if you live in the past.”

Fly, Fly Again is clever little story, perfect for children of all ages.  The Daughter, and Mom, duo, wrote this book together.   Fly, Fly Again introduces young readers to the concepts of flight – lift, gravity, thrust, and drag, along with pitch, roll, and yaw.  Jenny and Jude accompanied by their pets, Kitty and Hawk, work together to build a flying machine. It is a fun story of adventure, teamwork, and perseverance that begins to lay a foundation for aerodynamics in an adorable picture book format.

I Don’t Like To Eat Ants is a Great Book

Posted on October 22, 2019 in 2019 Fall Gift Guide

My 22 year old, daughter, read I Don’t Like To Eat Ants to her class just the other day.  The second graders loved it.  They had a discussion about the book, and really enjoyed hearing Sarah read it.  With just 29 pages, the lesson was a great one.  She said the kids were still talking about it today.

My 8 year old, son, loved the book too.  He has read it 3 times, over the last few weeks.  He says he can’t get enough of the Anteaters.  “Too cute!” he says.

“I don’t like to eat ants,” said Anteater One. “They don’t taste very good, and they tickle my tongue…”

Anteater One is one adventurous eater. He’ll try anything – a grilled cheese sandwich, a nice salad, or a chocolate cake – but he’s eaten his last ant. Anteater Two only wants ants to eat. Anteater Three has the perfect solution: a reservation at his world-famous Peanut Butter & Jelly Deli, where the anteaters can discuss the very important question of what to eat for lunch. Sabine Mielke’s beautiful, stylized illustrations accompany JTK Belle’s rhyming, laugh-out-loud text, in this charming, relatable, story with a timeless message about the importance of trying new things.
I Don’t Like To Eat Ants recommended age group is 2-6, but don’t tell my kids that.  They loved it!  If I can get them to read, that’s a bonus, and I Don’t Like To Eat Ants has made them enjoy reading.

Miss Olive is a tiny, rescued Italian Greyhound who was adopted from the Italian Greyhound Rescue Gulf Coast into her loving “forever” home in 2015.
