Monica, watch out, I am hosting now!!!!


I decided to take a break from my story of this weekend to give you a small update about something else.... As it turns out.... I love to host!!!!!

This past Thursday I hosted the Book Club in our ward that I recently started and I really enjoyed hosting the ladies at our house. We had a wonderful turn out with 10 ladies and 1 sweet gal from Young Women's. It was brain stimulating and delicious to boot (this must be my new saying becuase I have now used it twice in the past two entries, maybe I am part Pirate, I will do my Family History and find out!!!)
We read The Giver this past month and this next month I let our wonderful Young Woman attendee pick and we will be reading Bright Blue Miracle. I will let you know how it goes....

I want you to pay special attention to the two bundt cakes I made for the Book Club. Both of the recipes came from my great friend, Destiny, who is a baker extrodinaire and they were soooo yummy! One was a Death by Chocolate variety and the other was an orange bundt cake that is very delish if I do say so myself! Thanks Destiny for letting me pick your brain and your recipes!

That's awesome you started a Book Club! I've been in one for 8 years now (one in Tucson, and one here). My sister-in-laws have an online Book Club too. Good for you for hosting first! And The Giver is an awesome book. Lauree

Krystal,
Funny comments and don't worry about proof reading, I get the point no matter how you spell it!!
I already have the Essential Mormon Cookbook, and I tell people that they should hand this out as standard material for church members because it is that awesome!
I don't have the other one yet, but I think I am going to have to invest in it...

Death by chocolate cake sounds like it would be right up MY alley. Glad your book club was a total success.
