Recipe Clippings
Around the new year, Janice from Farmersgirl Kitchenwas looking through some old magazine clippings, and inspired me to do likewise. During the subsequent discussion on Instagram, Janice proposed the#recipeclippings challenge, a monthly challenge to make something from your clippings box.

I have a huge box file of magazine cut-outs, which I seldom even open, so it was great to be prompted to so... Read more of this blog post »

Last Train to Istanbul by Ayşe Kulin
" I really liked this one. Glad to see it being more widely read - it was a part of WW2 history I was completely oblivious to, before I read it. "

It took me a while to really get into this book, but once it got going, I was hooked. Flirts with a lot of standard YA dystopian tropes, and then dares to do something a bit different with the genre.

“You're still alive. That means you're winning.”
Rachel Cotterill, Rebellion

“Call it "a wonder" or "a mystery" and you have an excuse to never try understanding it - an excuse to not take responsibility for it. People knew about love no more than they knew about Science, but at least most did not jump into Science headstrong, with the hope that they would figure it out as they went, or that some "mysterious" inborn trait would take care of it.”
Lynna Merrill, The Seekers of Fire

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
Robert A. Heinlein

“I only steal because my dear old family needs the money to live!"
Locke Lamora made this proclamation with his wine glass held high; he and the other Gentleman Bastards were seated at the old witchwood table. . . . The others began to jeer.
"Liar!" they chorused
"I only steal because this wicked world won't let me work an honest trade!" Calo cried, hoisting his own glass.
"LIAR!"
"I only steal," said Jean, "because I've temporarily fallen in with bad company."
"LIAR!"
At last the ritual came to Bug; the boy raised his glass a bit shakily and yelled, "I only steal because it's heaps of fucking fun!"
"BASTARD!”
Scott Lynch, The Lies of Locke Lamora

“If you wrote something for which someone sent you a check, if you cashed the check and it didn't bounce, and if you then paid the light bill with the money, I consider you talented.”
Stephen King

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
