What's Cooking?: Wok With Me

The wok is the most versatile kitchen cookware in the world.  It can be used for braising, deep-frying, pan-frying, stir-frying, sautéing, searing, smoking, steaming, stewing, boiling and poaching. Imagine all these methods using this one vessel.  In my opinion, every home should have one but then I’m quite biased. This conical shaped cooking vessel has been used for thousands of years originating in China at a time when fuel was scarce.  It was first invented to solve this problem as a way of making the most of the valuable fuel by its fast and efficient way of cooking.  In contemporary cooking, it suits the desire for fast and easy cooking, and much more.

Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull

Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull

Review by Katie Byrnes

Summer and Bird is a unique, and unusual book that tells a story unlike any other.  In Summer and Bird, Katherine Catmull brings to life a sad, frozen world of birds, and a vivid and life-like set of characters to save it.  Two sisters, Summer and Bird, discover this world while searching for their missing parents, and begin an adventure that changes their world forever.  The characters in this book, along with their thoughts and feelings, seem so real that if they could jump out of the pages at any time, you wouldn't be surprised to meet them.  Summer and Bird may be most well suited for ages 10 to 13.  In this novel, first-time author Katherine Catmull brings such original and creative ideas to the table that it will not be quickly forgotten.  I greatly enjoyed reading Summer and Bird.

This book wil be published October, 2, 2012
