What's Cooking?: Shape Up!

The overindulgent holiday feasting is finally over and the New Year projects the familiar resolutions we’ve come to know every year in regard to our health and fitness.  Where we recently were enticed by the seductive sweets that surrounded us during the holiday gluttony without any guilt, we must now discipline ourselves to withdrawn from this temptation.  After stepping on the scale to see the damage, there will be no delay in cutting out the homemade cookies, banana breads, chocolates, and apple pie that are all sitting in the kitchen within reach.  It is certainly the right time to go back to eating smaller portions to whip us into shape. The bounty of nourishing healthy recipes provides variety and interests.  Never a dull selection.  Although correcting our eating habits to maintain a healthier diet is not easy, there are many sources to help us support a healthy lifestyle eating. 

Book Review of Speechless by Hannah Harrington, review done by Marie Yatsyk

Everyone knows that Chelsea Knot can’t keep a secret.”

After spilling a secret that almost gets someone killed, Chelsea Knot decides that she won’t speak to anyone - not her teachers, her parents, or even herself - until she learns how to “keep her mouth shut” and stop hurting others. But there’s a difference between blurting out and speaking up, and it takes some unexpected friends that are willing to give Chelsea a second chance for her to learn that difference - and to learn to forgive herself.

Book Review of Seraphina by Rachel Hartman done by Katie Byrnes

Seraphina was a very unique, original, and complex book.  When the story begins, Seraphina's world is on the brink of war.  For forty years, a treaty was all that prevented a war between the humans and the dragons.  The fear, mistrust and lack of understanding between the two species had set their world on a path that could only lead to war.  When the prince is murdered, tensions reach a fever pitch as all heads turn to the dragons.  Soon the story's heroine, Seraphina Dombegh, a gifted musician in court, is drawn into the mix.  As she investigates the murder, attenpts to stop a conspiracy that could destroy what little chance for peace was left, and tries to understand her feelings for the prince's nephew, she must also struggle to conceal her deepest secret.  I really enjoyed reading Seraphina.  The story was very suspenseful and entertaining, and Rachel Hartman's writing was skillful as well.  I think this story is most suited for ages 12 and up.
