My passion outside of cooking/baking, food photography, blogging, and school is reading. I love reading for fun and to learn. It sounds super corny, but reading lets me just take a break from life for a while and escape into a different world.
So I thought I would make a list of some of my favorite books. It pretty much goes without saying that I love the Harry Potter and Twilight series, so I’ll refrain from exclaiming their complete awesomeness. This list is in no particular order. I’m just writing as the books come to my mind.
1. The Uglies- This is the first book in a series about a dystopian society where at the age of 15 all citizens undergo plastic surgery to become beautiful. However, the surgery is not purely cosmetic. The story follows a brave young girl who challenges her society.
2. The Giver- I read this book a really long time ago, so the details are a little fuzzy. I should put it on my “to read again list.” Anyways, this is another dystopian society book in which at a certain age, everyone is assigned their future job. One boy finds out more about the inner-workings of this society, and…well you have to read the book to find out the rest!
3. Women, Food, and God- This book is just one of many by Geneen Roth. If you’ve ever struggled with disordered eating, compulsive eating, yo-yo dieting, or just any weird attitudes towards food you should read this book! This book is really what inspired my recovery.
4. Any book by Dan Brown
I just realized that I love almost every book I read, so listing my favorites would take me eternity. Instead, I’ll talk about taco roll ups. These are super easy to make. They’re a delicious cheap appetizer or perfect for a picnic lunch.
Taco Roll Ups
2 packs of soft tortilla shells
1 package cream cheese
1 tub sour cream
1 packet taco seasoning
Combine cream cheese, sour cream, and taco seasoning using a mixer until everything is incorporated. Spread this mixture onto a tortilla shell. Roll the shell and cut into thirds.
