Far to Go by Alison Pick

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy reading books that take place in Europe, especially when I come across a brilliant historical fiction novel that is set during the days leading up to (and during) the Holocaust. To me, those days were the darkest days our world has seen, and I can’t get enough of books that teach me new things about what happened during that time.

I recently started Stumbling. It's a fun and seriously addicting way to discover new sites, ones you would love or find interesting.  For some darn reason Stumble Upon has decided to torture me with amazing recipes. Desserts, pastas, steaks... So I got an idea that would allow me to give in to temptation and blog about some awesome recipes....more
