Cookie Books for any time..Even Holidays

Do you read cook books like Novels! I do. Books were my first friends, after my cousins of course. Cook books and Baking Books are my closest of friends! We have so much fun together...sorry if this is sounding sorta wacky, but I know I'm not the only one who loves Baking Books like I do...you know who you are, I'm giving you permission to admit it...at least to yourself.
Below is my list of  Cookie Books that I borrowed from the library and didn't want to ever take them back...but I did because that's wrong! Anyway take a look see on Amazon or Good Reads at the reviews...for my 25c. Both of these books have easy to a bit more challenging( more than 5 ingredients) recipes. My favorites in "Mom's Big Book of Cookies" are the refrigerator or (hidden in) the freezer cookies.

Mom's Big Book of Cookies: 200 Family Favorites You'll Love Making and Your Kids Will Love Eating  Cookies to try the snicker doodles, freezer cookies, and a cookie from Rainy/Snowy day..or when you have barely any ingredients!

Big Fat Cookies
The ideas are endless...Where is the Great Cookies?
Right in this book! Go for it!


Cocoa Ice by Diana Karter Appelbaum and Illustrated by Holly Meade

How is chocolate made? Where does it come from?  Does it grow on trees? Find answers in this book Cocoa Ice
 This story is on the 3rd or 4th gr. Level...but children of all ages should read or have this read to them.. It is a story of connection to our neighbors, how chocolate is made as well as where it comes from. The trees bloom all year long on the Island of always Summer! My personal dream come true!

My Daddy is a yoga Pretzel

"My Daddy is a Yoga Pretzel."  Our family had been introduced to Yoga Pretzels in the form of large index cards. You can pick a card and practice with a family member or on your own but quite a few of the cards are for partners to practice together. You can focus on what you want..examples are  trust,  courage, patience etc. So i want to check out the book in the next few days or so, from the library. I'm really looking forward to it. I'll come back here and Good reads and share my thoughts on this book and I'd appreciate if your comments on Yoga Pretzels if you have read or used the index cards too!
