Read in October, 2009

This book had some really good recipes. I especially liked the pizza dough recipe that you make in the food processer. Amy's story about how she and her husband saved up the money to buy their dream house was inspiring. But some of the tips are extreme. I doubt that I will be washing and reusing my baggies, even here in Germany where you have to sort every bit of your trash for recycling. I have three separate trash cans in my pantry. One for plastics and cans, one for paper and one for regular gross garbage. We also have 4 cans that they collect on garbage days. But I enjoyed reading it. I recently used the tea dying tip for dying all my nylons the same color. So there is probably some tips you might use.
