I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.

Classic 30-Minute Meals: The All-Occasion Cookbook

Classic 30-Minute Meals: The All-Occasion Cookbook - Rachael Ray We're a family of two and we eat a vegetarian diet, but I found most of the recipes in this collection were easily modified if they called for meat, poultry or pork. One of our favorites, that we make at least once a week, is the Spaghetti with Zucchini and Garlic, YUM-O! Not all of the recipes we tried were hits, though. Part of the fun with any cookbook is getting to make meals together and finding a new favorite dish (or dishes).
