I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a full grown, intelligent woman who is really into reading Young Adult fiction. They are so entertaining, creative, and fast paced! And the romance level is just right for me. 50 Shades of Grey… uh-no thank you. I’m not interested in reading all the dirty details.
I’m all about the romance, the looks, the touches, the first kiss. The tension. The electricity. And that’s just what you get with a YA novel. You get all the romantic build up without having to watch the explosion.
So, for this installment of book recommendations, I give you one of my favorite YA series. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is incredibly inventive and a super fun retelling of our favorite fairy tales. The series starts out with the first novel “Cinder”, about a futuristic “Cinderella” character who is…wait for it…a cyborg! I’m not kidding. But it really works within the story and is not at all ridiculous. Plus, each subsequent novel builds on the story before it and adds another reimagined princess to the excitement – Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel. You’re going to love them.
I don’t know about you guys, but I could eat feta pretty much any time and on anything. From pizza to pasta salads to sandwiches, I can’t think of any savory food that wouldn’t be made just that much better with a sprinkle of feta on it.
But you know what’s better than food with feta? JUST STRAIGHT UP BAKED FETA. Cooked with salty olives and fresh herbs, drizzled in honey and broiled to soft, golden, spreadable perfection.
I used Flora Fine Foods Sicilian and Kalamata Olives, and I drizzled everything in their Organic Extra Virgin Olive oil. The products are imported from Italy and truly gourmet, so the taste you get from both the olives and the olive oil is smooth, buttery, and very fine. They lend just the right amount of flavor to the baked feta while still letting it shine, not overpowering it as some brands of olives can. They are the perfect partners for the perfect appetizer.
