I would like to congratulate my French Facebook friends for their win in today’s World Cup. I know none of my British friends were rooting for France—memories of the 100 Years War and all that. :-) But I love France and was happy to see them win.

Stephen Huggins Stephen Huggins's blog:

Cooking for PicassoCooking for Picasso by Camille Aubray

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


"Cooking for Picasso" is one of those books that readers devour and authors envy.

Camille Aubray has crafted a novel that could have become disjointed and confusing in less than expert hands. Celine's story in 2016 is told in first perso... Read more of this blog post »
