Our Best Bites

Okay, I've been blogging for about a year and what happened last week has never happened before. I hope that it never happens again. I'm really annoyed, this was last Thursdays book and for some reason anything that got posted on Thursday got deleted. Blogger said that they are putting things back, but I've waited since Friday and it's never shown up, so I guess I will redo this post and the one that I had scheduled for Friday. I AM NOT HAPPY about this though! I know this isn't a novel or anything, I LOVE the girls. Kate and Sara are so easy to read and you feel like you know them. I was way excited for this book to come out. But I didn't buy it the first time that I saw it at Costco, bad move! The next several times it was sold out. I was so annoyed, because it was $15 at Costco and more like $25 everywhere else. So a couple of weeks ago when I was at Costco they had about 5 of these. I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy it or not, because I do read the website and I wasn't sure about the overlap. Most people online loved it. There were about 3 people that were mad because it wasn't exactly like the website. Anyway, I have loved this cookbook. I love that there are color pictures of every recipe. I love the how to's. How to roast garlic. How to make the best pizza in your oven. (It was way better than any other recipe we've tried!) I recommend this book, it's just a fun cookbook!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Favorite Friday - Book Launch for Piper Pepper The Garden Sprite

I like to go to book launch parties! It's really fun to be able to meet the author of a book you've enjoyed reading and be able to talk to them just a little bit. I've had a ton of fun doing that. And I've met some really AMAZING people too! 

And I also like children's books, so I'm really excited to tell you about, not only a launch party coming up in Lehi next week, but about the book that will be launching.

About the book: Meet Piper and her three toad brothers in this first book of the series as they hop and fly around Piper's Garden. Piper loves her garden, with its petunias, violets and bell peppers. What Piper has a hard time with is her three toad brothers. They set traps, eat her food and race past her and through her garden. Will Piper be able to put that all aside when her brothers need her help? Piper Pepper the Garden Sprite is set in beautiful Alberta, Canada. With the Rockies and vast prairies as the backdrop, Piper helps us to see the sometime…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
