This is my after Christmas version of Mailbox Monday. Actually my book present this year was a Kindle. Yay! Thanks David and Amber.

And Amber picked out a nice, pretty blue cover for it.

And my mom gave me this cookbooks that has some wonderful recipes in it. I can’t wait to try some of the desserts.

Der Dutchman Cookbook

The cooks of the famed Der Dutchman Restaurant in Walnut Creek, Ohio, know exactly how to put the comfort in comfort food. First published in 1973, this classic cookbook contains fun surprises like “Never-fail Pie Crust,” “Bushel Cookies,” “Poor Man’s Steak,” and “Old-fashioned Butterscotch Pie.” Along with traditional recipes destined to become dog-eared favorites, you’ll find original Pennsylvania Dutch jingles in every chapter.

Purchase at Amazon.

I did get one books from the publisher for review this week, too.

Pre-order at Amazon, an Indie bookstore, or The Book Depository.

And I won one from Tif at Tif Talks Books. I’m giving it to a little girl I know for Christmas, along with an adorable flower hat that I also won.

Ladybug Girl by David Soman and Jacky Davis

Lulu’s older brother says she is too little to play with him. Her mama and papa are busy too, so Lulu has to make her own fun. This is a situation for Ladybug Girl!

Ladybug Girl saves ants in distress, jumps through shark-infested puddles, and even skips along the great dark twisty tree trunk–all by herself. It doesn’t matter what her brother says, Ladybug Girl is definitely not too little!
